Real Men Do Eat Quiche

Who says real men don’t eat quiche? I like them, and the male species of the family eat them. It’s fast and it’s tasty. If you are out of time, use bought pastry shell, or make crust less ones. I made these mini quiches with toasted bread as the shells. They’re perfect as finger food. The boys had them in their lunchbox.

Ingredients (makes 8 in large muffin pans)
8 pieces of sandwich bread
2 eggs
2 pieces of bacon, diced
½ onion, diced
4 pieces sun dried tomatoes, chopped
1 stalk spring onion, chopped
½ red capsicum, diced
½ grated cheddar cheese
Margarine or butter to spread on bread
Salt and pepper to taste

1.          Preheat oven to 180°C.
2.          Use a rolling pin to flatten the bread, then cut off the crust into a nice square.
3.          Butter one side liberally.
4.          Place buttered side down in the muffin pan, press the centre down.
5.          Bake in the oven for 10 mins until the bread are lightly toasted.
6.          Mix all the other ingredients in a large bowl.
7.          Scoop into the bread cups and bake for another 15minutes.

Bread cups.


  1. Yum! I love quiche and so does my hubby. Never made them with bread shells before. Will have to give this a try!

  2. I use these bread shells. Crack an egg into one, put some bacon pieces on top, put in the oven and 5 mins later breakfast.
