If you go down to the woods today your in for a big surprise…… hey my Yummy mummies and Daddies.
Spring is picnic season. Even if its raining we are known to have a teddy bears picnic in the yummy household (on a blanket in the kitchen).
Most recipes for quiches involve ready rolled pastry. I trawled the internet to find a butter-less home made one and couldn’t find one . Believe it or not even the lighter ready rolled one can have up to 14 grams of fat in it.
My pastry is easy, rustic and has only 4 ingredients (plus one of them is water) fill with egg, milk, ham, and a handful of grated of cheese (or if your cheesey like me lots of cheese)!!! and finish with a circle of cherry tomato x scrummy
Ingredients (this will make 12 mini quiche,s)
- 2 cups of plain flour (I just regular cups no fancy measuring cups)
- half cup of water
- 3 table spoons of Olive oil
- pinch of salt
- 4 eggs
- splash of milk
- grated cheese
- cherry tomatoes
- fresh basil (optional)
Pre heat your oven at 180 c gas mark 4 ,
In a bowl sieve flour add a pinch of salt
make a well in the middle.
Add the oil and using a fork mix, the pastry will look like breadcrumbs
slowly add the half cup of water (this is a guide you may need more). and mix until it becomes a dough.
roll in clingfilm and rest for around 30 mins in the fridge
Flour a chopping board or work surface and flour your hands!!!
spray a muffin tin with olive oil. (spray each individual whole and sides)
split the mixture into 6 and press each one into the muffin tin. This will look very rustic but trust me it works out in the end.
while they are baking make the filling.
In a bowl whisk the eggs add a splash of milk, chopped ham and good handful of grated cheese (think omelet) and some fresh basil. (optional)
Fill each pastry with the mixture and finish with a slice of cherry tomato.
Then bake for a further 25 minutes until egg is set xxx No hidden baddies!!! only goodies xx one yummy daddy went off with a few today for his lunch. So you may have to hide them xxx Enjoy and have fun yummy Mummy,s and Daddies xxx #
