Mini Quiches

I mentioned these yummy quiches on my previous post. I would highly recommend these as they tasted so damn good and were sooo easy to make! I found the recipe on but adapted it to what i had on hand.
You could easily adapt this recipe and make these into any combination of flavours that you like!

Makes approx 24 mini quiches
4 large eggs
1/3 cup full cream milk or cream ( also had some left over buttermilk so i added a slop of that too...)
1/4 grated onion (or you could finely chop shallots)
salt and pepper
2 sheets thawed puff passtry
1 cup grated cheese
1/2 - 3/4 cup diced bacon or ham

In a bowl mix the eggs, milk, onion S&P in a bowl until well combined

Using a round cutter approx 8 cm in diameter (i used a scalloped cookie cutter i had) cut out rounds of pastry. Pop the pastry rounds in a well greased muffin pan. The pastry should be a little bigger than the bottom so that it forms a slight lip/curve.

Sprinkle cheese and bacon in the bottom or each pastry round. Spoon on egg mixture over top.

Put it in a pre heated 200C oven. Bake for approx 15 - 20 minutes until the pastry is puffed and golden.

Perfect. The crisp buttery pastry, eggy creamy centre with the salt from the cheese and bacon make these the perfect finger food... Too easy.
