Ham and vegetable mini quiches

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.

  • 1 pack of ready rolled short crust pastry
  • 3 medium free range eggs
  • 100 ml milk
  • 1/2 handful spinach
  • 3 cherry tomatoes
  • 1 thick slice ham


  • Preheat the oven to 200C (180C fan, 400F)
  • 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
