  • Oven


  • 3 puff pastry sheets thawed
  • 125 g corn kernels tinned, drained
  • 75 g ham finely chopped
  • 2 spring onions trimmed, thinly sliced
  • 7 eggs extra large, lightly whisked (See notes)
  • 35 g (½ cup) cheddar cheese, coarsely grated


  • Preheat oven to 200 degrees Celsius (fan-forced).
  • Grease a 12-hole ⅓ cup capacity muffin tin and set aside until needed.
  • Using a ramekin or scone cutter, cut four 10cm circles from each sheet of pastry to make a total of 12 circles.
  • Line each of the muffin holes with one pastry circle, crinkling the pastry to fit.
  • Divide the corn, chopped ham and sliced spring onion equally between the muffin holes.
  • Pour the lightly whisked egg over the fillings.
  • Sprinkle the grated cheese over the top of each muffin hole.
  • Bake in the preheated oven for 20 minutes, or until puffed and golden.
  • Leave in the muffin tin for 5 minutes before eating them while warm.
  • If you are going to store (or freeze) the quiches after baking, transfer them to a wire rack to cool completely.


Recipe Notes and Tips
Oven temperature - if you have a conventional oven, increase the temperature by between 10 and 20 degrees Celsius.
Frozen or tinned - you can substitute frozen corn kernels for the tinned corn kernels, however I recommend that you bring them to room temperature first.
Spring onions - are also known as green onions or scallions in some parts of the world. There is a subtle difference between them, and spring onions are completely different to shallots which they are sometime confused with.
Size of eggs - I recommend extra-large eggs, which weigh about 60g each, for this recipe. If using smaller eggs, use 1 more than in the recipe.
Storing - Corn, Ham and Cheese Quiches are best stored in an airtight container in the fridge, for up to 2 days.  They can  be frozen if desired, in an airtight container for up to 2 months.
