Place the bacon leek mixture on top of lined tin with filo, and spread evenly, pour the egg mixture over the top, then dot the fetta cheese on top of the egg mixture.Slice thinly tomato and place on top, garnish with fresh parsley or thyme sprigs.

Bake in a 160 degree fan forced oven for 20-30 minutes or until golden brown and the egg has set.
