Quiche Toast

I made beef quiches for breakfast this morning. It was quite fast to prepare them as I used sandwich bread for the cups instead of making the pastry base from scratch. It's so much easier but still very delicious. I highly recommend you to make these quiche toasts... I can guarantee your family will like them!

Quiche Toast

150g ground beef
1 medium onion, finely diced
pinch of salt & pepper
1 tsp oil
12 slices sandwich bread (I used wholemeal.)
2 eggs
⅔ cups milk
a pinch of salt and pepper
⅓ cup cheese, grated (tasty, gruyere, cheddar - any good melting cheese) - I used mozzarella.
1 tbsp finely chopped coriander leaves,
oil spray / oil / butter for greasing pan

  1. Preheat oven to 200 deg C.
  2. Heat 1 tsp oil in small pan over high heat. Add onion & sauté until soften & slightly caramelised. Add in ground beef & continue cooking until meat turns brown. Remove from heat and set aside.
  3. Cut bread into rounds or just cut crusts off. Use a rolling pin to flatten the bread.
  4. Grease 12 muffin tin holes (I used butter.), then press the bread into the muffin tin.
  5. Place in oven for 3-5 minutes until the toasts are just a bit dry. (The toast cups should not be browned.) Remove from oven and set aside.
  6. Whisk together the egg, milk & a pinch of salt & pepper.
  7. Divide the cooked beef  between the 12 toast cups, then top them with the cheese.
  8. Pour the egg mixture into each cup, almost to the rim, & sprinkle the coriander leaves. Then immediately place the muffin pan in the oven. If you take too long between pouring the egg mixture into the toast cups and putting it in the oven, the egg will start soaking into the bread.
  9. Bake for 15 to 20 minutes until the top is golden and the filling is set.
  10. Remove from oven and rest for 5 minutes before serving. The filling will be puffed up but it will deflate while resting.
  11. Garnish with extra coriander leaves if desired. Serve warm.
Makes 12 toast cups.
Recipe adapted from  Recipe Tin Eats.

  1. Instead of beef, you may use any other filling like seafood, ham, mushroom, etc but there's no need to precook the seafood or ham.
  2. Do not use stale bread as it would be difficult to flatten & press it into the muffin hole.
  3. Toasting the bread until it's dry before adding the filling is an important step as it prevents the egg mixture from soaking into the bread.
  4. You need to grease the muffin holes generously as the egg mixture may overflow onto the holes & it then may be difficult to remove the quiche toast.
