Little Quiche


  • 2-3 slices deli ham, diced
  • 3 scallions, chopped (save 1 teaspoon for garnish)
  • 5 cherry tomatoes, diced
  • 1 extra large egg
  • 3/8 cup (90g) milk
  • Vegetable oil for greasing
  • 11-12oz ready rolled short/pie pastry, thawed (follow the instruction on the package)
  • All purpose flour, for dusting
  • 1/3 cup grated cheese (cheddar/mozzarella)



  1. Mix together the diced ham, chopped scallions and diced cherry tomatoes in a bowl. In another bowl, beat the egg and milk with a fork. Chill these ingredients as you prepare the pastry.
  2. Preheat the oven to 425°F (210°C). Grease a 12-cupcakes pan. Sprinkle a little all purpose flour on surface, roll out the pastry. If the pastry cracks when rolling out, use your fingers and slightly pinch to seal the crack.
  3. Use a 3″ (7.5cm) round cutter. Cut out 12 circles and place each in a cup of the pan. Gently press down with your finger to form a shallow cup.
  4. Divide the mixture of ham, scallions and tomatoes equally among the 12 cups. Fill each cup with the egg and milk mixture until 80-90% full. Sprinkle the cheese on top.
  5. Bake for 18-20 minutes or until the mini quiches are set and golden. Garnish with some chopped scallions. Serve warm.

Cook’s Note:

If you don’t have a 3″ cookie cutter, use the rim of a drinking glass or container that is slightly wider than the cup in the pan.
