Hello Food loving people,
Some of my favourite memories from being a kid were meals that I got to build with my family but were just for me. Tacos, nachos, and pizza were event meals where we each got to make our own.
I’ve been coming up with other options to do with my kids and even guests. It makes them feel more connected to their meal. I guess it’s an IKEA effect for food.
Quiche is great for this, it can handle almost any extra ingredients, it’s filling, and most people like it.
What you need to make it is:
- Milk, cream, Half and Half;
- Muffin tins;
- Oil spray; and
The important thing to remember is the ratio:
1 Egg + 1/2 cup of cream = 3 muffins with stuff
One caveat I’d have is if you’re using watery veggies like zucchini or mushrooms, you should lower the cream to 1/3.
Cook at 375 for 20-30 minutes.
As far as filling goes, my family’s favourites are: Shrimp, chicken, ham, bacon, onions, garlic, jalapeno, brie cheese, sharp cheddar, mushrooms, zucchini, and broccoli.
There’s no rule as to what you can put in, but all meats should be pre-cooked and I’d recommend cooking the watery veggies too.
The rest is up to you.
