Pin It Do It - Crustless Quiches

by Bex

Come back this afternoon for a craft club update and find out how to join :)  (It's also your chance to meet Mummy OliveDragonfly!)

A couple of weeks ago, I needed a super quick recipe for baking club.  The theme was picnic and I had the idea that quiche might be an easy one as I could make the pastry on the Tuesday night and then make my quick eggy filling on Wednesday after work and could take it along still warm.  Sadly, I was still rather jet lagged and after working 9-7 on Tuesday I pretty much went straight to bed.  Cue the crustless quiche idea!

I searching Pinterest for ideas and came up with a combination of this one and this one and adapted my own recipe using the flavour combination from the first.  They are SO quick and easy but tasted great.

Makes 12

5 eggs
2 tbsps of double cream
50g parmesan cheese, grated
50g sun dried tomatoes chopped
large handful of basil, chopped
salt & pepper to season

Preheat the oven to 190oC.

Oil a non-stick muffin tin.  Beat the eggs in a large jug.  Add the remainder of the ingredients and mix well.

Pour into the muffin tin and bake in the centre of the oven for 10 minutes.  Check with a skewer and leave in for another 2 minutes if required.

They came out looking just like eggy muffins but did flatten after cooling.  They were also a NIGHTMARE to get out of the tin but tasted delicious and I will definitely make a batch again for breakfasts!

They went down a treat at the picnic which was one of my favourite meetings ever.  :)  See the full report I wrote over on the Glasgow Baking Club website but here's a sneak peek below...

I only managed to stay an hour, despite having so much fun, as I was so tired but popped in to see Roz on my way home and she presented me with this...

She knows I don't like diet drinks but she spotted it by chance and I won't drink it anyway as I want to keep my special bottle :)
