Party food 1 - mini quiches

TLG's birthday party is on Saturday and I'm doing most of the cooking (I outsourced the cake).  I want to try out all the new recipes before making them for the party.  The first cab off the rank is mini quiches.

I used a recipe from Exclusively Food, because it's simple, and because it offers a few variations.  I made the ham and cheese version.  I'll make the mushroom and feta cheese version as well for the party.

The cooking process was fairly straight forward.

All ingredients in the bowl

Whisking didn't take long

It was the first time I used puff pastry.  I used a cup to cut the circles.

Some of them were a bit sticky by the time I tried to tear out the circles.  Next time I'll cut and remove the circles one sheet at a time rather than cutting them all at the beginning.

Added the ham and cheese.

Poured in the egg mixture, and after 20 minutes in the oven, the quiches were ready.

For dinner tonight I served them with a mixed greens and grape tomatoes salad.

The quiches weren't as fluffy inside as the ones shown in the Exclusive Food website.  Maybe I need to whisk the mixture a bit more, I will do that next time.

Overall this is super easy to make and I'm happy with the result.  TLG certainly approved :-)

Tomorrow I'll make a pesto pasta salad.
