Sound good, but they are really just individual frittatta.
Cheese and bacon
Cheese and tomato
Cheese bacon tomato and herbs
Tuna and cheese
Just a few suggestions, but any leftovers such as cold roast chicken is also possible.

I think it is more like mini crustless quiche. In either case it sounds delicious, and anything with bacon in it is ok with me.

Forgot to say veggies can be added too.
I never do the frying pan in the oven or under the grill thing with frittata and I suppose they really should be called crustless quiche.
The little ones are great packed for lunch at school or work.
