I really love a good quiche (plus they make good baby led weaning food) but making crusts is tedious, especially when you are trying to wrangle a little person. When I spotted this idea on the Tesco website of using tortillas to make a crust I was skeptical. I figured the tortillas would go soggy and the filling would go everywhere. I was pleasantly surprised that they actually went lovely and crispy. I have already made it twice and Mr O and Little O are big fans.
Adapted from Tesco.com
4 large flour tortillas (it’s essential you use the large ones as the base of your cake tin must be covered all it will leak)
150g broccoli cut into small florets
75g good quality ham, cut into small chunks
75g mature cheddar cheese, grated
250ml whole milk
Preheat your oven to 180 C and line a large loose bottomed springform cake tin with greaseproof paper. Brush olive oil on both sides of the tortillas. Arrange one of the tortillas in the bottom of the cake tin ensuring that the wrap covers the whole base of the tin. Cut two of the tortillas in half and arrange them around the sides of the tin, overlapping each other and the base slightly. Finish with the final tortilla.
Arrange the broccoli, ham and cheese over the tortilla base.
Beat together the eggs and milk and season with salt and pepper to taste. Pour the egg mixture into the base.
Bake in the oven for 50 – 55 minutes until golden brown. Allow to cool in the tin for 10 minutes before removing and serving.
