Mini quiches
Serves: 12
 
  • 4 rashers of bacon, chopped into 1cm pieces
  • 2 eggs
  • 200 ml pouring cream
  • 3 sheets frozen puff pastry
  • 30 g cheddar cheese, grated
  • 3 shallots, finely sliced
  1. Preheat oven to 190 degrees celsius. Grease 2 x 12 hole muffin tins.
  2. Gently fry the bacon until crispy. Add the shallots a couple of minutes before they are done. Drain on paper towel.
  3. Place eggs and cream in a bowl, season with salt and pepper, and whisk to combine.
  4. Cut pastry rounds and press gently into the tins. Divide the bacon and shallots, and grated cheese between the pastry cases.
  5. Pour the egg mixture over the top, being careful not to overfill. Bake for 15 minutes or until the quiches are golden and puffed up.
  6. Remove from the oven and leave in the tins for a couple of minutes before removing them.
