Equipment

  • Muffin tin
  • 12 Muffin cases
  • Pastry cutter 3 1/16in / 78mm

Ingredients

  • 3 Sausages
  • 1/2 a red pepper
  • a bunch of parsley
  • 3 tablespoons of soft cheese
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 sheet of ready made puff pastry

Method

Grill the sausages under the grill for 10 minutes.

Dice the red pepper and lightly fry the red pepper with a little olive oil in a frying pan.

Chop up the sausage into tiny bite sized pieces. Mix together the sausage, red pepper and chopped parsley in a bowl.

Either roll or lay out your puff pastry. Using a circular 3 1/16in/ 78mm cutter cut out 12 circles from your pastry.

Place your muffin cases into the muffin tray. Place a circle puff pastry piece into each case and push down slightly so that it covers the mould of the tray.

Now spoon in 2 tablespoons of your sausage mix into each muffin hole, on top of the pastry (12 in total).

Finally, mix your soft cheese and beaten eggs in a separate bowl/jug. Pour onto your individual quiches so that they are about 3/4 full.

Bake in a preheated oven 180C for 15mins or until lightly brown and the pastry is golden.

Enjoy cold or warm.

Why not try replacing the sausage, pepper and parsley for these tasty ideas:

  • cooked spinach and feta
  • cooked chicken and sweetcorn
  • bacon, mushroom and parsley
  • baked beans and grated cheddar cheese
  • Or just try anything you ave left over in your fridge

Obviously also consider the salt content of the foods you are putting in for under ones especially cheese and sausage. Read How much salt should a baby have? if you are unsure.
