RECIPE - Pineapple & Sweet Corn Mini Quiche's

This recipe is an absolute hit with kids! I have yet to see a child not love it. There is never left overs with a tray of these are they are SO easy. A real fail safe recipe you know the kids really are going to eat! They can even easily be made gluten free too!


These are perfect for school lunches, picnic's and entertaining. The flavour combinations of sweet and savoury make them a real hit with kids and adults alike. Freezable. Makes 24.

Ingredients
·         1 cup cheddar cheese, grated.
·         4 free range eggs.
·         ½ cup cottage cheese.
·         1 tin Australian sweet corn, drained.
·         1 tin pineapple pieces, in natural juice, drained OR fresh pineapple - local is best!
·         3 sheets butter puff pastry or gluten free puff pastry or homemade pastry.
            1 tablespoon Superfoods for Kidz Vital Veg powder (OPTIONAL) see notes
Method
·         Pre heat oven to 180’c.
·         Lightly grease 2 muffin baking trays.
·         Remove pastry sheets from freezer.
·         Make sure pineapple and sweet corn are really well drained.
·         Crack the eggs into a large bowl, whisk lightly.
·         Add in cheeses, sweet corn, vital veg and pineapple, combine well.
·         Cut pastry sheets into 9 squares.
·         Line each muffin hole with one square. Remove pastry corners (optional).
·         Fill with mixture.
·         Bake for approximately 15 - 20 minutes or until nicely golden and pastry is cooked. This will change depending on the size of the quiches you make.
Notes
·         Perfect portion sized for school lunch boxes.
            The Nutra organics SuperFoods for Kidz range is absolutely amazing and products I happily give to my own children all the time. Everything is honestly labelled and organic, raw, vegan and paleo friendly. Even if you have kids that eat well these powders taste great and can be added to all kinds of foods to really boost their immune system and overall health and vitaliy.

Toddler Tips
·         Use a miniature muffin tray and this makes lots of tiny, toddler hand sized quiches.
