Cut circles of puff pastry, use a cutter that is 1cm bigger than mini muffin pan hole (as pictured below, the cutter I used was too small). Fry bacon and onion, sprinkle onto pastry along with cheese, then pour over egg mixture. 

Many other variations can be used:

  • spinach and fetta,
  • roast pumpkin and pinenuts,
  • ham and pineapple
Not pictured below, but I have been using a silicone mini muffin pan when making my quiches as they just pop out and require little cleaning.
