Pot luck events. We love 'em and hate 'em at the same time. Faced with the dilemma of what to bring? Too often everyone ends up bringing a bag of chips and then it turns into an unhealthy snack. Or there's the store-bought muffins. Either way, pot lucks don't have to be as 'snacky' as you think. My mum recently had a pot luck dinner and came and asked for my advice of what to bring.
"Don't worry mum - I got you covered".
To her relief she didn't even have to step a foot into the kitchen as I whipped these quiche savouries up for her. Sadly, I didn't get to taste them myself but my mum later reported back to me that she put them on the table and then never saw them again. I assume they got devoured pretty quickly and were quite a favourite. Let's be honest, if you leave the bag of chips at home you're already winning.
These took me 30 minutes to make. 10 minutes of prep time and 20 minutes in the oven, and can be done the night before and stored in the fridge.
6 pieces of streaky bacon, diced
1 onion, diced
Handful of grated cheese (I use Edam)
Fresh parsley, chopped
3-4 sheets of puff pastry
Salt and pepper to taste
Preheat oven to 180 degrees
Use a rounded object (I used the brim of a mug upsides down) to cut circles out of the pastry with a knife. I managed to fit 4 circles per sheet of pastry. You may be able to fit more, depending on how big your circles are.
Lay circle pastries into a muffin tray so they for little cups.
To make the mixture, in a bowl mix eggs, bacon, onion, cheese, parsley and salt and pepper.
Spoon the mixture into the pastries until just below the brim.
Bake in the oven for 20 minutes or until golden brown.
When you take them out of the oven you may noticed that some of your pastries have puffed a lot. No worries. Just poke them with a knife to let the air out.
