Ham and Cheese Mini Quiche

Update: The Sudden Cook is a YEAR OLD today! I started this blog exactly a year ago! Thank you to each and everyone whoever and wherever you are for taking the time out to read this very unknown blog. It has been fun and I never knew I could make friends in the process and am VERY glad that I have:) Ok. Back to the quiche now.

So I'm having my husband's cousins over for dinner in a couple of weeks and was looking to preparesome mighty fine finger food. I decided to give this recipe a trial run last Saturday. Was mighty pleased with the results - they are interesting to make and more importantly pretty simple to prepare.

Makes 18 mini quiches.

Use a 20ml tablespoon and 250ml measuring cup.

What you need:

3 large eggs 
90ml (4 1/2 tablespoons) cream 
3 teaspoons (18g) grated onion
1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg
Salt and pepper
2 sheets frozen puff pastry, thawed (use sheets that measure about 25cm by 25cm)
100g (1 cup) grated tasty cheddar cheese
115g (2/3 cup) finely chopped shaved leg ham

What to do:

1) Preheat oven to 210 degrees Celsius. Generously grease a muffin pan.
2) Using a fork or small whisk, beat eggs, cream, grated onion, nutmeg, salt and pepper in a small bowl until well combined.
3) Using a round cutter with a diameter of 8cm, cut nine circles from each sheet of pastry. 

4) Line each muffin hole with a pastry round. Divide grated cheese evenly between pastry cases.

5) Then divide chopped ham evenly between the pastry cases.

Spoon about one tablespoon of egg mixture into each pastry case. 

6) Bake for about 20-22 minutes or until quiches are golden and puffed.

This recipe was adapted from this website.

Random Facts: 

I used my favourite Pampas frozen puff pastry which I also used hereherehere.

The cutter was on loan from my sis. She is most probably reading this so "Thanks sis!"

I can attest to the fact that these were VERY good! :-) That and the chicken wings. Sigh... I'm dreaming about them already.

The Sudden Cook said...

Thanks Ann! So glad you all enjoyed it. J loves it to the extent he kept bugging me to have some before you all came over - compromised and let him have 2! He wanted 6.

You know, this is the best way to make something simple & delicious, of coz, most of all hassle free! haha.... Do you agree with me? Sometimes, I also get lazy and wanted eating out. But after discussing with the kids for half an hour. Everyone prefer to stay at home and have Maggie mee instead. Like my boy, he will put up his hands first and count out what are the stalls we're going... then ended up saying boring! haha... And said: "mom... we eat Maggie mee or dried boiled noodle lah!So boring eating out!" haha...
For me, I can just take a sandwich & a cup of coffee. Thanks for sharing & enjoy your day.
Cheers, kristy
