Yummy Quiches!

 

Hey Guys,

 

So was looking for a quick easy lunch for the kids. The cupboards are looking a little bare and it’s a public holiday here so this recipe is a combo of what was in the fridge and well what doesn’t go with a quiche! I added some veg to hide it as I have an extremely fussy little man at the moment who is pretty much on a nothing but banana diet… He had one quiche and a banana for lunch… Winning 🙂

 

So here it is – this is my version but you could substitute for what is in your fridge!

 

INGREDIENTS:

1/2 Red Capsicum

200g Bacon

100g Zucchini

1 small onion

6 Eggs

100g Mozzarella Cheese (Or cheese of choice)

100g Cream

3 Sheets of frozen Puff Pastry

Mini Muffin Tray (Or a muffin tray depending on how big you want them.)

 

METHOD:

  1. Add the onion, capsicum, bacon and zucchini to the TM bowl and roughly chop for 3 seconds on speed 4-5. You want to just get a nice rustic feel to it so that it has a good texture in the quiches.
  2. Cook for 5 minutes Varoma temp on speed reverse + speed 1. You could add a splash of oil if you like. Set aside in the fridge to cool slightly while you prepare pastry.
  3. I used a tupperware cup to cut circles out of the pastry to fit perfectly into the mini muffin tray. (See pics.)
  4. Add cheese to the TM bowl. (Can be left dirty from mixture.) Blitz cheese on speed 7 for 5 seconds.
  5. Add eggs and cream and mix on speed 5 for 10 seconds.
  6. To assemble place a small spoon of the slightly chilled mixture into each case. Pour the eggs mixture over the bacon mixture to fill up each pastry case.
  7. Cook in the oven for about 15 – 20 minutes at 180 degrees. Until pastry is golden brown. A tip here is to put your muffin tray onto a baking tray. This will ensure that the bottoms come out nice and golden brown too.
  8. Serve warm or cool with a nice tomato chutney.
  9. I made some bigger ones for the adults in normal size muffin tins. I put the bacon mixture in and then a mini bocconcini cheese ball and then filled with the egg mixture. Once they were cooked they had this beautiful cheese centre.
