Cute mini quiches made using plain old bread. Who can possibly resist these? Makes six quiches (three servings)
Recipe type: Breakfast, Brunch, Snack, Finger Food
¼ onion, finely diced (brown, white or yellow)
1 tsp oil
6 slices white sandwich bread (fresh)
2 regular size eggs (or 3 small)
2/3 cup milk
1/3 cup cheese, grated
2 tsp parsley, finely chopped
Salt and pepper
Preheat oven to 180°C.
Heat 1 tsp oil in small pan over high heat. Add onion and polony and sauté until polony is crisp - about 2 minutes. Remove from heat and set aside (you can just leave it in the pan).
Cut bread into rounds or just cut crusts off. I use a tomato can (emptied and washed) - the perfect size to cut rounds to fit into muffin tins out of bread or pastry.
Use a rolling pin to flatten the bread. Lightly spray 6 muffin tin holes with oil spray, then press the bread into the muffin tin.
Place in oven for 3 minutes, remove and set aside. The toast cups should not be browned, just a bit dry.
Whisk together the egg, milk, parsley and a pinch of salt and pepper.
Divide the polony mixture between the 6 toast cups, then the cheese.
Pour 2½ tbsp of egg mixture into each cup, then immediately place in the oven.
If you take too long between pouring the egg mixture into the toast cups and putting it in the oven, the egg will start soaking into the bread.
Bake for 12 to 15 minutes until the top is lightly golden and the filling is set.
Remove from oven and rest for 5 minutes before serving.
The filling will be puffed up but it will deflate while resting.
Garnish with extra parsley if desired. Serve warm.
