Mini Quiche: Quick and easy savoury treat!

 Making quiche is easier than you think, and with this recipe, you don't need any special pan to make it too.


Because all you need is a simple muffin tin that you can buy it everywhere ^^. And this recipe, you don't have to pre-bake the pastry, just put everything into a muffin tin and bake that's all.
Using shortening is good for making pastry because it doesn't contain water (butter has 10-18% of water depends on each brand). Starting by mixing the shortening with the flour, you already prevent most of the flour to crate gluten when touching with the liquid, and it means your pastry won't become hard.
For the filling, I like to say that it's up to you. You can use ham, bacon, onion or anything that you love and cut them into small pieces before adding. I love the feeling that we are free to make it the way we want, haha.
Don't forget that the filling need time to set before taking it out of the tins, beside this warning everything is easy!
