Recipe: Quiche Cupcakes

QUICHE CUPCAKES

We've made quiche before, and we all know it's one of Ben's favourites. But this method beats them all if you want quick results. Little individual ones without the need for fussing with pastry... they look almost like quiche cupcakes! And who are we going to share this recipe with... Donal Skehan of course! He was in London and we simply couldn't refuse the opportunity to cook with him.
