I love this Mini Quiche Recipe! So quick, so easy and mini quiche are perfect to serve up at parties, pop into lunchboxes or serve at lunch with a lovely big salad.
For my Mini Quiche Recipe, I decided to use surplus Aldi frozen puff pastry sheets which were nearing their ”use by” date. The end result was a Mini Quiche Recipe that I’ll be using forever now.
I enjoyed the complete process of making my treats, especially given this was the first time I was trying the settings on my new Ariston oven. You can see from the photo I took that they are golden brown, that the pastry on the Mini Quiche Recipe is crisp and golden, and the quantity of ham is enough that you can still see the little chunks even once the quiche are cooked.
There are also so many variations you can create with this Mini Quiche Recipe; Smoked Salmon and Cheese, Tuna and Corn, or Chicken and Feta. For a vegetarian option you could make Char-grilled Capsicum and Onion, Asparagus and Cheese, or a motley assortment of leftover veggie pieces!
This scrumptious Mini Quiche Recipe is so great for leftovers, too, because each mini quiche is an individual entity! They can easily be stored in their own little compartment of a lunchbox, or packed individually for your lunch. These mini delights are also a fantastic opportunity in which to hide veggies! If you cut your hidden veg small enough, your kids won’t even notice they’re there, buried in the eggy filling of these mini quiches. You could easily smuggle your goblins some mushrooms, spinach leaves, spring onion shoots, asparagus, and even green peas! So long as the filling is covered by at least a thin layer of cheese, I doubt your munchkins will notice your secret additions!
Ingredients (serves 4)
- 4 eggs
- 1 cup ham, diced
- 1 capsicum, diced
- 1 onion diced
- 1 cup grated cheese
- salt and pepper
- Combine all ingredients well.
- Thaw puff pastry, then cut pastry into circle shape big enough to fit into base and sides of oiled muffin tray wells. Probably quicker and easier if you just cut pastry sheet in quarters to line the muffin tray wells with.
- Pour filling mixture into puff pastry wells and bake at 200 degrees C for 15 minutes. Let cool for 5 minutes for puff pastry to shrink a bit which will make taking out easier.
