Donna Hay: Basics To Brilliance Kids

Looking for a quick lunch, dinner or afternoon snack for the kids? Bread cup quiches are a Donna Hay go-to!


  • 12 slices wholemeal bread, crusts cut off

  • 40g butter, softened

  • 6 eggs

  • 1 cup (250ml) milk

  • sea salt and cracked black pepper, to taste

  • 2/3 cup (50g) finely grated parmesan


  • 1.

    Preheat oven to 160°C (325°F).

  • 2.

    Using a rolling pin, roll out each slice of bread until it’s very thin. Lightly spread one side of each slice with the butter. Use the bread slices, buttered-side down, to line the holes of 12 x ½-cup-capacity (125ml) muffin tins, folding and pressing them in to fit. Bake for 15 minutes or until golden. Wearing oven gloves, carefully remove the tins from the oven.

  • 3.

    Break the eggs into a large jug. Add the milk, salt, pepper and half the parmesan and mix to combine, using a whisk. Pour into the bread cases and sprinkle with the rest of the parmesan.

  • 4.

    Bake for 18–20 minutes or until just set. Wearing oven gloves, remove the trays from the oven and allow to cool a little. If you like, serve with extra parmesan and some snipped chives.
