Easter quiche

  • Author:
  • Prep Time: 10 mins
  • Cook Time: 30 mins
  • Total Time: 40 minutes
  • Yield: 4-6
  • Category: breakfast

Ingredients

  • 4-6 pieces of puff pastry, defrosted
  • 50 gr arugula
  • 100 gr green peas, frozen
  • few mint leaves
  • 2 eggs
  • 125 ml double cream
  • 50 gr grated parmesan
  • few slices of smoked ham

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 180C. Take a few small ovendishes ( I used the little creuset ones) and line each form with one square sheet of puff pastry. You might need more then one sheet if your forms are a little bigger.
  2. Take a bit of arugula and cut it into smaller pieces. Put a bit of that on the bottom of your pie. Divide the peas on top and sprinkle with a bit of mint. Don’t use too much mint as it is an overpowering taste, so a little goes a long way.
  3. Whisk the eggs together with the double cream and add the cheese. Season with salt and pepper. Pour your egg mixture over the peas and arugula and divide the hamslices on top.
  4. Bake your quiche in the oven for about 30 minutes

  1. What a fun dish! Pretty easy to make, looks terrific, and I’ll bet the flavor is awesome. Great recipe — thanks.

  2. Oh Simone, this is brilliant! Adorable and tempting and I am so making these! Personally I love the peas and arugula and parmesan so no need to change that. I just love the idea of making individual quiches in mini pots like this and I know how delicious quiche are when using puff pastry. And so pretty!
