They come very handy on days when you just want to drop on your couch and eat your meal in front of the TV watching your favorite show.  Don’t even have dishes or cutlery to wash.

1 1/4 cups shredded Asiago cheese
1/4 cup finely chopped onion
1/4 red capsicum, thinly sliced (if want spicy, replace with 1 red chilli)

1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon dry wasabi
1/4 teaspoon paprika
1 (10 ounce) package spinach, cooked, chopped and drained
1 (9 inch) short crust pastry (divide by 4 make 4 mini pie shell)


Method:

In a large bowl, beat eggs; whisk in milk, 1 cup cheese, capsicum,onion, bacon, salt, mustard and paprika. Add spinach. Pour into pie shell. Sprinkle with the remaining cheese. Bake at 400 degrees F for 30 minutes or until a knife inserted halfway between the center and the edge comes out clean.

  3. Oh I definitely have those days. Sometimes if I didn't have kids I probably wouldn't even eat dinner on those days. Being a mom can be so exhausting at times. I love quiche and would enjoy it as a meal any day. Yours looks delicious.
