Cooking with kids includes involving them in everyday recipes, like quiche. Most kids like eggs (especially yummy scrambled!) but the veggies inside quiche may be a hurdle. Involving your kids in the prep and choice will help with the acceptance of this dish (and win on the veggie front!).
momstown Milton created mini quiches with their Junior Chefs. Prepping all ingredients together gave all the children a chance to practise their slicing, dicing, mixing and pouring. Allowing children to cook adds to their confidence and with supervision, there are very few recipes your children can't find at least one element to help you with.
1 cup milk
1/2 tsp salt
1/8 tsp pepper
1/2 cup chopped pepper ( you can use what ever colour you want)
1/2 cup shredded cheese
1/2 cup chopped mushrooms
1/2 cup chopped onion
1/2 cup broccoli
chopped fresh chives
mini tart shells
Everyone personalized their own mini quiche to suit their tastes. Each child selected their own ingredients in a little bowl and our moms helped by covering in the egg and milk mixture.
Next, we poured it all into our shells and baked in oven at 425 for 25-30 minutes, until golden and firm in the centre.
