Mini crustless quiches – quick to prepare and perfect for the lunch box.
These Mini Crustless Quiches are my newest recipe to be developed for Finn’s lunch box. Since he started school in February I have been busy thinking up nutritious, but quick to eat, foods that I can add to his lunch box. I also want recipes that I can prepare ahead of time and pop in the freezer. This recipe ticks all those boxes.
I love that these Mini Crustless Quiches can easily be adapted. I’ve made a spinach and cheese version here but you can easily substitute the spinach with a different vegetable and add some extras like roughly chopped ham.
I have made these mini crustless quiches with and without the silicon muffin cases. I did find they stuck to the muffin tray a bit and so, therefore, would recommend using silicon cases and allow to cool for ten minutes before you remove from the case.

- Grease a 12 muffin tray or fill with greased silicon cases.
