CORE Ricotta Quiches

Serves: 10 mini quiche

Difficulty: Easy

  • 3 eggs, beaten
  • 1 x 250g Perfect Italiano Light Ricotta
  • 10 slices of smoked leg Ham - see note
  • 1 carrot grated
  • 1 zucchini grated
  • 1/2 cup corn kernels
  • 3 TB chopped parsley
  • 1 spring onion, chopped
  • ground pepper
  • 1 tsp dried Italian herb mix
  • 5 cherry tomatoes, halved

Optional - you could also add finely chopped capsicum, mushroom, aparagus etc.

Note re ham
To get a nice scalloped shaped shell for the quiche, I recommend using small round ham. I used a 100g packet of Don's Honey Ham from the dairy cabinet.

Spray 1/2 cup muffin tins with oil spray and place a slice of ham in 10 holes
Mix eggs and ricotta well, then add all ingredients apart from cherry tomatoes and mix.
With a soup spoon, distribute mix into ham shells.
Top with half a cherry tomato sprinkle a few flakes of Italian herbs on the tomato.
Push the tomato down into the ricotta mix with the back of the spoon.
Lightly spray top with oil.
Bake at 180*C for 35-40 mins.
Put under griller if you want more golden colour

Any left over mixture can be baked in a greased muffin tray without the ham for a yummy patty.
