Here is  a quiche recipe that the kids will love! Cook it in a cup cake tray to have finger food for the whole family. Ideal for picnic and birthday party!


  • 250 g shortcrust pastry
  • 1 egg
  • 140 ml double cream
  • 80 g grated cheddar cheese
  • 1/2 onion
  • 1 tsp olive oil


  1. Preheat oven to 190C degrees (170 fan, gas mark 5)
  2. Put a small frying pan on medium heat with a teaspoon of oil. Chop the onion as finely as you can and add to the pan.
  3. Cook gently until softened and just browning.
  4. Roll out the pastry onto a floured surface until it is 1 cm thick.
  5. Grease a cup cake tin, and with a glass or a biscuit cutter (slightly larger than the tin moulds), cut the pastry. Push each pastry circle into the moulds.
  6. Beat the egg in a bowl and continue to beat as you add the double cream.
  7. When completely combined, add grated cheese and the onion, then stir. Pour the mixture into each pastry case until about half full. With a fork, make sure each pastry case has some onion and cheese inside then top up the cases with the liquid until they have half a cm of pastry left above the liquid line.
  8. Cook in the oven for 10-12 minutes.When done, the quiche centres will have no runny liquid left visible and will have blown up to deflate almost immediately.
  9. When slightly cooled, move to a wire cooling rack.

For a nice twist you can add ham or pancetta too!
