Easy mini quiches

It's a new year, and I'm glad last year was over!  It was a year full of great things, but also tough things we had to go through.

We've been busy moving house, and also going to different parties over the past couple of weeks, and I thought I'd share my never-fail mini quiche recipe with you all.  I've always gotten compliments for it, it's dead easy and it's a great dish to bring to a party or a bbq.  A colleague of mine passed the recipe to me (verbally) years ago and I've kind of tweaked it here and there but it's simplicity remains the same.

It makes a great lunch, served with salad and some spicy tomato relish.

Puff pastry (readymade)
300ml pure thin cream
3 eggs
Parmesan cheese, finely grated
100g shaved ham or Spinach, blanched 

  1. Preheat oven to 180ºC.
  2. Line a 12 hole muffin tin with puff pastry
  3. Whisk cream & eggs together, & season with salt & pepper.
  4. Fill the pastry lined muffin tin with approx 1 tsp ham/spinach & 1tsp grated Parmesan cheese
  5. Fill each hole about ¾ full with the egg & cream mixture.
  6. Bake for 12-15 minutes until pastry is browned & filling is cooked.
