Easy Lunchbox Fillers

Ruby has been going through a spate of not eating her school lunch. Day after day she comes home with a lunch box still full of the lovingly made healthy meal – which takes up a fair bit of time each morning for the lunch-maker (aka Me). She said her friend has quiche for lunch and it’s yummy – so I thought I’d make a batch for this week and see how it goes down.

Here’s the recipe. It’s super easy.

Ingredients

4 eggs beaten.

3tbs grated tasty cheese.

1 red onion diced finely, sautéed gently for 5 minutes until transparent.

3 slices ham diced small. *Omit ham for a vegetarian option

Gluten free pastry sheets (you could use any savoury pastry or puff pastry).

2 tbs cream

Salt and pepper.

1 x 12 muffin tray

Olive oil for greasing.

Method

Preheat oven to 180° C. Mix eggs, cheese, onion, ham, cream, salt + pepper in a bowl. Grease muffin tray with butter or olive oil. Cut out rounds of pastry – if you have an egg ring this can be helpful – and line the muffin tray by pressing the pastry into the bottom of each greased indent. Spoon in egg mixture and bake for 10 – 15 minutes until golden brown. Remove from oven and place on a cooling rack.

These will freeze well. You could take them straight out of the freezer in the morning and put into lunch box to defrost.

Bon appetit!
