Mini Ham and Cheddar Quiches


Mini Quiches

These are fantastic for popping into the kids lunchboxes and are tasty whether eaten straight out of the oven or at room temperature. I happen to prefer them when they have cooled right down but my husband gobbles them up straight out of the oven. The 7 month old has also taken a fancy to them so I make a couple without the ham and onion mixture.

Sweetcorn would be a lovely addition, but I have a fusspot (not the kids btw!) who doesn't like it...apparently it's too sweet.

MINI HAM AND CHEDDAR QUICHES

| Serves: 24 | Prep Time: 10 Minutes | Cook Time: 15 Minutes | Total Time: 25 Minutes |


Ingredients:

  • For the pastry
  • 280g Plain Flour
  • 140g Cold Butter, cubed
  • 8 TBSP Water
  • For the filling
  • 2 small Onions, chopped
  • 4 Slices Ham, chopped
  • 1 TSP Dried Thyme
  • 4 Eggs, beaten
  • 100ml Double Cream
  • 200ml Milk
  • 200g Grated Cheddar

Instructions:

  • Step 1: Make the pastry by pulsing the flour and butter in a processor until breadcrumbs form. Add the water a tbsp at a time and pulse until the pastry just comes together - you might not need all of the liquid. Tip out onto a floured surface and form 2 discs. Wrap in clingfilm and place in the fridge for 30 minutes.
  • Step 2: In a saucepan fry the onion in a little butter until soft then stir in the dried thyme and ham. Set aside.
  • Step 3: In a jug whisk together the eggs, cream and milk. Set aside
  • Step 4: Roll out the pastry and cut into 24 rounds using a round cutter. Place the circles of pastry into 2 x 12 hole bun tins and gently push down.
  • Step 5: Preheat the oven to 190c then fill each pastry case with a tsp of the onion and ham mixture.
  • Step 6: Pour the egg mixture into each one being careful not to overfill, then sprinkle with the grated cheddar.
  • Step 7 : Bake in the oven for about 12-15 minutes. Cool on a rack.

No Bake Zingy Lime Crumb Pie

This No-Bake Zingy Lime Crumb Pie is going to be my go to dessert this summer. A zingy lime cream encased in a sweet biscuit crumb - much like a no bake cheesecake...but better! It's seriously yummy and will happily sit in the fridge for a couple of days so there's no need to scoff it all at once if you don't want to 😜. It's quite rich too so the recipe made in a 20cm springform tin will easily feed 8 - 10 people, the perfect size for a family gathering or summer BBQ.


TOP TIPS FOR MAKING NO-BAKE ZINGY LIME CRUMB PIETry using ginger nut biscuits instead of digestives for a more grown up taste.For a 'fancier' dessert, pipe some whipped double cream around the edge of the pie and decorate with slices of lime.I whip the condensed milk, lime juice and double cream with a hand held electric whisk but you can do it by hand if you want to - it will give you a good arm workout!You can make the Zingy Lime Crumb Pie up to 3 days before you need it so it's a great ma…

Honey and Peanut Butter Flapjacks

These flapjacks are now my official weekday grab and go breakfast. I make a big batch on Sunday evening and I'm all set for the week. Oddly I don't really like peanut butter but it works well in this recipe. You can always substitute it for an extra 100g of ordinary butter if you wanted. A handful of raisins makes a nice addition too.
