These little quiches are great fun. They don’t need to be neat, the kids can take charge in making them, and you can take them to work/school in your packed lunches.
Here’s how to make 12 light, creamy quiches with crumby pastry cases.
- 1 pack of ready rolled short crust pastry (choose a brand such as Jus Rol as it’s completely dairy free)
- 3 medium free range eggs
- 100ml a2 Milk
- 1/2 handful spinach
- 3 cherry tomatoes
- 1 thick slice of ham
- 6 hole muffin tray
- Preheat the oven to 200C (180C fan)
- Unroll the pastry and cut out 6 circles 11cm / 4.5 inches wide
- Line the muffin tray with the pastry discs. It doesn’t matter if it’s uneven as long as there are no holes. It’s a great job for little hands
- Bake blind for 8 minutes then remove from the oven to cool
- Fill each case to approx 1/2cm from the top
- Cut the tomatoes in half and drop a half into each quiche
- Chop the ham into small pieces and distribute evenly between the quiches
- Shred the spinach finely and distribute evenly between the quiches
- Top up with the remaining filling mix, if necessary but don’t over fill them
- Bake for 15-20 minutes until the pastry is golden and the filling is firm
The beauty of these quiches is that you can add any other veg you like – or even seeds and pulses – they’re just so easy to customise!

As you’ll note, I used a2 Milk in our quiches. Find out more on the a2 Milk website.
