As if feeding kids breakfast and dinner isn’t hard enough. On days at home and weekends you also have to organise lunch.
My kids are ok at eating veggies but will never sit down to a salad or just roasted veggies. I tend to sneak veggies into things. The other problem is that they do not like brown bread or bread with too many visible grains (Scarlett says its ‘dirt’). Taking all of this into consideration I love a recipe that has vegetables, egg, low fat dairy and something the kids can help me make. I also use Tip Top The One Mixed Grains instead of white as there are grains but they chosen by kids, perfect for picky little eaters.
This nifty little recipe is also fantastic because you can vary the ingredients depending on what you have in your fridge or pantry. Eliminating the need to pop into the shops.
These mini quiches are always a hit at lunchtime with my kids and they are perfect for parties too.
You can use any veggies, herbs and even add some ham. Here is what I used, but feel free to mix it up.
INGREDIENTS (serves 6):
6 slices of bread. I use Top Top The One Mixed Grain because my kids love it. I also love it because of the grains (so long boring white bread)
1/2 cup grated light tasty cheese
1/4 grated onion
1/2 tomato – sliced
1 small carrot – grated
Handful of mushrooms – sliced
A handful of baby spinach -cut or grated
Dash of light milk.
Preheat oven to 160°C, grease a muffin tin. Cut crusts off bread and lightly roll out with rolling pin. Pop bread into muffin tins instead of pastry. Beat 3 eggs with the milk and add veggies, herbs and cheese. Distribute eggs and veggie mixture amongst muffin tins. Bake for 15 minutes or until golden brown…… ENJOY 😋
This recipe makes 6 quiches but you can double the mixture to make 12.
