Made 3 layers, used a small layer of cheese on first layer then made rest without cheese. Top last layer with fried diced bacon pieces then bake. Last half hour remove from oven and top with rest of cheese and fried sliced shallots. Fresh thyme is the only herb you need with salt/pepper. Bake again 25-30 mins or until cheese is golden brown.

Added nutmeg and fresh thyme to the cheese mixture. Made 4 layers and topped with extra cheese and maldon salt right out of the oven. Delicious!
