*This is a great recipe for using up any vegetables and meat you may have in the fridge and I have also made them with chicken and broccoli or bacon and leek.

How to make it

  1. Lightly grease a cupcake baking tray.
  2. Using a large cookie/scone cutter (I used a 31/2 inch one), cut out 12 puff pastry bases and place them in the greased baking tray. Each one should fit like a bun case.
  3. Chop up the onions, mushrooms and peppers into small strips and gently fry for about 5 minutes in some olive oil to soften.
  4. Into a jug, gently whisk the eggs. Add the milk, cream and Kilmeaden cheese and mix together.
  5. Spoon the onion, mushroom and pepper mixture evenly into the individual moulds in the baking tray.
  6. Add the egg mixture to each. Do not overfill.
  7. Place in the oven for 15 minutes at 180C.
  8. Remove easily with a dessert spoon.
  9. Decorate with some chopped chives and enjoy with a green salad and a glass of wine!
