Recipe by JustJanS

Very popular finger food in Australia, expensive to buy, but so simple to make!

Yummy! I made it with Puff Pastry instead of short pastry crust, and it tasted just like a Baked Egg Souffle from Panera Bread! Just puff the pastry for a minute before adding the egg mixture. I did regular muffin-sized quiches instead of mini ones. I still baked them for 12 minutes. I will definitely make these again!

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 kg ready-rolled shortcrust pastry (6 sheets)
  • 6 slices bacon, diced
  • 1 onion, finely diced
  • 6 eggs
  • 1 cup cream
  • 1 cup grated cheese
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh parsley (I used dried)
  • salt & freshly ground black pepper


  1. Cook the onion and bacon over a low heat until the onion is softened.
  2. Allow to cool a little.
  3. Mix together with the eggs, cream, cheese, parsley and salt and pepper.
  4. Using a cookie cutter or glass, cut 12 circles from each pastry sheet.
  5. Use these to line a mini muffin pan.
  6. Place about 2 teaspoons of the egg and bacon mix in each pastry base.
  7. Bake in a moderate oven for about 12 minutes per tray (or until puffed, golden and set).
  8. repeat with remaining pastry sheets and mix.
