I feel like a genius with this idea! Now I’m sure if I was to google I would find that I’m the last person on earth to discover this. 
 
Last night I had a teething baby who was not going to put down for more than 5 minutes. I needed to make a quick dinner for my older children. I’ve been addicted to pies lately and had my pie maker on the bench from lunch. Quiche mixture + pie maker = a super quick and easy dinner! In the time it took to cut up the salad and cheese the quiches were done. This makes 6. 
 
Vary the flavours to suit whatever is in your fridge. 
 
Some filling ideas:
  • Ham, bacon, zucchini
  • Sundried tomato and feta
  • Caramelised onion 
  • Spinach and ricotta 
  • Corn and bacon 
  • Roasted capsicum and feta

    This is my favourite ‘can’t be bothered tonight’ recipe. We had them tonight and my fussy two year old even ate it! So yummy!

    These are a pure stroke of brilliance. So simple, delicious & my Mr 2 scoffed down 2 whole quiches without a complaint. Thank you!!

    What have I done wrong? My quiches weren’t cooked in the middle! My pie maker is only a cheapie so maybe it was too hot?

      I just use a cheap kmart one for mine. I’d just cook a little longer as long as the outside wasn’t burnt?

    These are such an easy “I just don’t have time” lunch or dinner. Really the only time we ever pull out our pie maker. Thanks Peta!
