8Arrange sliced tomatoes on top and sprinkle remaining cheese over the top.

Like little nugget shaped potato hash browns. American folk call them tater tots 🙂

Absolutely delicious. I left out the mushrooms and added extra bacon and it was amazing with very generous serves. Will definitely be making it again 😀😀

I made this yesterday & was impressed with the end result! The gems turned out golden & crunchy & the quiche held together perfectly once removed from the slow cooker, will definitely make again ☺
