Lunch box quiche

Lunch box quiche

My kids went back to school this week after being on holidays for three weeks. I have not missed having to have lunch box items on hand! My two are not all that fond of sandwiches so I have tried to do a few different things that are also freezeable and easy to prepare in bulk.

Usually when I prepare these quiches I get out a large glass and cut out round pastry pieces but the other night I wanted to keep it simple. It was late and I was hungry myself which promted this particular cook! This time I just cut my large pastry sheet into 9 squares – two cuts each way and I was done – so much quicker!

When I pushed the pastry squares into the muffin tray I just pulled the pasty up on the sides – the ready-made stuff is thick enough to do that.

Then I mixed a few eggs (4 this time) in a bowl with some milk – sorry I can’t give quantities right now as I didn’t measure but I’d say half and half egg and milk. Usually I’d use a bit of cream too but there wasn’t any that this time around. Season with a bit of salt & pepper.

I had cooked some rashers of bacon. I used some American-style streaky bacon which crisps up so I really did just crumble it into each muffin pan but often I’ll cut up traditional bacon rashers before cooking – or just some chopped ham works too.

Then just fill each muffin pan with egg mix. If you like you can sprinkle a bit of cheese on the top of each one.

Cook on about 180/200C for 15-20 min or until the egg mix is set.

Allow to cool and if they make it… freeze. Then they are ready to go into lunch boxes all week.
