“Happy Pie” is the name my son gave this dish. I’m not sure why and neither was he. “It’s just happy”.
Easy to do and easy to eat. Slice it into squares for an easy school lunch that will fill them up and give them added benefits. You can also make small ones using a muffin tray.
Happy Pie recipe
- 1 Sheet puff pastry
- 1 head of broccoli
- 8 large cherry tomatoes quartered
- 2 Tablespoons of Self Raising Flour
- 1 Tablespoon of Grated Parmesan
- 2 Tablespoons of Milk
- 5 Eggs
- 1 ½ cups of Tasty cheese
- ¼ teaspoon of sweet paprika
Line a pie dish with baking paper and place in your puff pastry make sure you come up the sides so your pie doesn’t run out (I have used a 26cm quiche dish). Score the pastry a little on the base. If you struggle getting a good cooked pastry base in your oven, pop the pastry in for five minutes before putting in the rest of your pie.
Chop the large florets of Broccoli off and steam or microwave them with a little water for about 4minutes just to soften them. Then chop them smaller so it’s easier for the kids to eat.
In a bowl use a fork to mix in your eggs, flour, parmesan and paprika. Add your milk and cheese and pour into your dish. Add the broccoli in so it’s all over and then scatter the tomatoes evenly around. The Egg and flour batter will rise a little to cover the veggies in baking.
Bake for approx. 25mins at 180 degrees Celsius fan forced.
This dish did three children’s dinners (with salad) and then I cut the leftovers up into bite sizes for school lunches the next day. Broccoli and eggs and cheese good healthy lunch and they didn’t even know it.
