Lets go vegetarian today!


Need a break from chicken? Try baking these Mini Quiche instead … the choice of filling is entirely yours but I wanted to keep it simple so I stuck to the cheese & onion flavour. This actually does not take long to bake at all … I prepared the dough a day in advance so all I really had to do today was roll it out, blind bake (takes approximately 10 minutes), add the filling, and bake again (another 10 – 15 minutes)! It really is as simple as that .. This recipe makes approximately 20! Ready to try it out?

Mini Quiche

All Purpose Flour: 2 cups
Butter (cut in small cubes): 4 tbsp (heaped)
Egg yolk: 1
Cold water: 2 tbsp (or as required)

Ingredients for the filling:
Eggs: 2
Milk: 1/2 cup
Grated Cheese: to taste
Spring Onions (chopped): to taste
Salt: 1/2 tsp (or to taste)
Black Pepper: 1/2 tsp (or to taste)
