the easiest quiche…..ever!

So it was recently brought to my attention… the little people in this family…..that they are over the  frittata for dinner! They don’t want it anymore. Time for a change. So yesterday in the car when they poo poo’d the idea of frittata I said what do you want and they all wanted quiche. Oh. I didn’t really want to make pastry and I didn’t think I had everything I needed. So I decided to wing it with what I did have and got a great result. So good in fact that Keira wanted a slice for her lunch today.
You can adapt the filling as I just used what I had in the fridge but it is really delicious, really easy and makes for a perfect midweek dinner. No fancy photos for this post because I wasn’t intending to share this recipe and my camera battery was flat
easiest quiche you'll ever make
before the oven!
What you’ll need:
1-2 sheets puff pastry
3 eggs
300-400ml cream (I just used light pouring cream)
6-7 slices of ham finely sliced
handful of parsley, chopped
some frozen peas (but like I said play around with the filling)
1/2 cup grated cheese
Preheat your oven to 180 C/350F. Defrost your pastry sheets and grease a pie dish with butter. You want to grease it well so that your pastry lifts out easily when the quiche is done. Lay a sheet of puff pastry down to cover the bottom and sides of your pie dish. My dish is too big so I need an extra sheet of pastry to fill the whole dish and if you break your pastry it’s great to have extra to cover up the cracks. Fold your pastry edges in – nothing fancy is required.
hot out of the oven!
Whisk your eggs and cream together. Add in the rest of the ingredients, season well and pour over your pastry. Bake in the oven for about 30-40 minutes or until it’s golden on top and just has a teensy bit of wobble to it. Remove and leave to cool for about 5-10 minutes to make it easier to slice. Slice and serve. We just covered up the leftovers (retro daddy was away!) and packed it up in Keira’s lunchbox.


  1. Yum. I make Impossible Quiche. No pastry!

  2. mmmmmmm….. simple and easy – just what we all need!! I have an abundance of eggs and am having a cooking day to use them up. Bread and butter custard has just come out of the oven – guess what is going in next!!

  3. Excellent!!! Our quiche is otherwise known as egg and bacon pie!! Think I might try this one – yummy!!!!

  4. Corrie your delicious recipes always make me lament the fact that I’m wheat and dairy intolerant. Such a shame.

  5. I’ve been using puff pastry sheets recently when I make quiche too, so quick and easy.
    I use whatever fillings i can find in the fridge- mushroom and onion is a favourite at the moment. and ricotta whisked with the eggs is really nice as a change from grated cheese.

  6. Que delicioso¡¡¡¡¡¡¡¡¡¡¡¡¡¡¡¡¡¡¡¡¡¡¡¡¡¡¡besos

  7. Over frittata but they’ll go for quiche! Kids, huh!? x

  8. Looks delicious.

  9. Lovely! Thanks for sharing this one Corrie, you’ve totally inspired me to make this for the kids… there is no end to the different vegies that could be thrown in there too! Excellent! xo

  10. I did a version of this last night – I made it bigger with an extra egg and a bit more cream and cheese, then mixed in parsley, a punnet of quartered grape tomatoes and 2 onions which I’d first caramelised. YUM! And it was even better for lunch today!
