My son is always enthusiastic to learn new skills and cooking is high up on that list. He is my most adventurous eater so he’s always willing to try new things. Ever since he was a baby he’s been a fantastic eater. He always reminds me that he hates mushrooms though lol! One of his favourites is quiche so we thought we’d learn how to make them from scratch.

Gather all your ingredients firstly;

  • 200g of regular flour
  • 50g of lard
  • 50g of butter/margarine
  • A pinch of salt (an adults pinch or maybe two pinches for those little fingers-we found our dough could have been a little saltier)
  • 30ml of cold water
  • 2-3 eggs
  • Grated cheese
  • Any other foods your child wants to add such as ham, onion, tomatoes..

We started off by adding the flour with the butter, lard and salt. We used a flour tool called a bladed dough blender. My mum recommended this as it helps to crumble the butters into the flour without getting too sticky.

This is the Bladed Dough Blender that we used.

Then once the flour and butters were combined my son added the water.

When the water is added it should form into a dough. Once your dough is rolled out, place it in the fridge to chill before you start making your quiches.

Roll out into a circle, about 1-2cm thickness

Chill in the fridge for about 15 minutes

Once your dough has been sitting for a bit, brush your muffin/cake tin with a little oil to avoid sticking. Find a cookie cutter bigger than the size of the muffin depth. The biggest we had was still a tad small so we used the lid from a smoothie maker. It seemed to be a closer fit.

My son then mixed up his eggs with a little salt and pepper. He added just cheese into his quiches as that’s all he likes in them but if your children are more adventurous they can add whatever they want.

We placed them into a preheated oven at 375F for 20 minutes. We then had to give them an extra 5 minutes. You’ll know when they’re cooked as the fork will come out clean when you prick them.

Thumbs up 👍🏻

These are pretty easy to make but there is some prep involved. You can always measure all the ingredients out before you start but I thought my son might like to do all that part too as he’s being learning metric at school. He picked out all his veggies that he wanted with his quiche but you can have these with anything as a side. Hope your kids enjoy them as much as my son 🙂
