Little quiche cups

Sometimes the simple dishes are the best. I’ve made a quiche a few months and had such high hopes, but these were dashed before the plate was even put onto the table. But I’ve seen these and I thought I’d be brave and give it another go. This recipe is a million times easier as you don’t need to worry about pastry. All you need is a piece of bread instead. Crazy, hey?!

I needn’t have tried again as these weren’t a massive hit with my girls. Quiche and my girls just don’t mix. Don’t let this turn you off making these, as my girls are very fussy. I liked these and will attempt them again in a few months time. My girls can be so surprising sometimes. Whilst making homemade pizza last night Miss F was eating the salami, parma ham, tomatoes and olives like there was no tomorrow. I was so impressed. 

What does your little one like that really surprises you? We have some great stories on our facebook page.
