So I’m sure we all tend to have very busy mornings where we often don’t have the time to make a full on English or Country breakfast, and where the idea of breakfast quickly turns into a good morning cup of coffee.

Well, I’m glad to say that this easy mini quiche recipe is a perfect on-the-go breakfast that is filled with almost everything you would ideally want in a full breakfast from mushroom to peppers and of course EGGS.

Quiche can be consumed in a car whilst sitting in traffic, as a lunchbox meal or as a ‘before workout’ meal.

How to make mini quiche with puff pastry?

A few tips that could help with making the perfect mini quiche with puff pastry:

  • Always always work with fully defrosted pastry. Working with a pastry that isn’t fully defrosted could result in pastry tearing when working with it.
  • Make sure to carefully butter your cupcake holder, nobody wants their quiche to stick and leave some parts on the cupcake tray. So to avoid all this, carefully butter your tray focusing on the corners and edges.

how to store cooked quiche cakes?

  1. After baking your quiche, allow it to fully cool down until it iat room temperature.
  2. Store your quiche in an airtight container and store it in the fridge. Consume within 3 days.
  3. When it comes to reheating your mini pies, you can heat it normally for 30 seconds- 1 minute in your microwave on high.
