KT’s NoFuss Mini Quiches

Thankfully these are as easy to make as they are to eat. In our house they have a habit of disappearing when my wife isn’t looking :).

I didn’t even get to take a photo of the finished products cooling on the racks.

Oh wait here is one from last time she made them:

    • 0.5 Tbsp whole grain mustard
    • 1 egg
    • ground black peppercorns to taste
    • ground rock salt to taste (I don’t use any as the cheese and bacon are salty enough)

Cutting and pressing puff pastry into baking tins to make the bases

  1. Lay the sheets of puff pastry out.
  2. Cut 24 circles out of them using the cookie cutter and press these into the trays.

  2. Cook for 15 minutes at 200°C in a fan forced oven. 20161119_103317

Eat them hot or freeze them. Personally I like them cold and think they make a great lunch box snack.

If they last that long :).

Enjoy,
