Whether you’re after a yummy lunch box filler or an easy after school snack, these Cheesy and Bacon Mini Quiches are sure to be a hit with even the fussiest of eaters! If you like to be super organised, then why not make a big double batch and freeze the quiches in individual portions until you need them – this is a great way to take the stress out of midweek lunches.
This is a really versatile recipe and can be easily adapted to suit your tastes. Why not try substituting the broccoli for a tin of corn? Or for something a little more gourmet, how about using prosciutto, feta and sundried tomatoes? Whichever way you choose to enjoy your quiches, you can be guaranteed that the crispy pastry and oh-so-delicious fillings will become a firm family favourite in no time at all.
