These look fab! Brilliant lunch box treats or after school snacks! I shall definitely give these a go when my boys go back to school 🙂
It’s all going to be fine! My girls start on Monday too, and although part of me will be skipping away from the school gates, there is a part that is incredulous that my babies are starting school. Where does the time go?! X

These look like super little parcels! I hate taking sandwiches to work but I would happily take some of these to scoff at lunchtime. I bet my colleagues would want some too! 🙂
These look delicious. Would they freeze ok? I like to make things ahead for my little one and take it out of the freezer the night before I need it.
Love these for picnics on a no carb day!

I made these this morning and they were delicious..but.. I am not sure if I misunderstood your choice of words, but when you referred to them as “mini crustless quiches”, did you mean to use mini muffin tins? I filled a 12 cup mini muffin tin and still had WAY too much left over egg, so was also able to fill a 6 muffin full sized tray by adding two more eggs and some more milk. Please clarify – is this recipe to be made in full size muffin tins? Or the mini muffin tins?
They are using full sized muffin tins. They are called mini because they are mini quiches. Quiches are traditionally the size of a pie.
Perfect for my kayaking trips with the girls (one of which is celiac) They freeze and thaw great.
