Whip up this easy eggy favourite in no time at all with this cracking hack.


2 sheets frozen butter puff pastry, thawed

6 eggs, lightly beaten, plus 1 extra egg

1/2 cup single cream

1 cup firm ricotta, crumbled

150g smoked chicken breast, shredded

1/2 cup sage leaves, to serve


1. Preheat the oven to 180C fan-forced (200C conventional). Line two 15cm ovenproof frypans with baking paper. Press a pastry sheet into each pan, allowing the pastry to overhang the edge slightly. 

2. Whisk together the 6 eggs and cream. Season with salt and pepper and pour into the two  pans. Top with ricotta and chicken. Place on a large baking tray. 

3. Lightly beat the additional egg with a fork, then brush the pastry edges with beaten egg. Transfer the tray to the oven and bake for 25-30 minutes, or until golden and puffed. 

4. Place sage leaves on a baking tray. Lightly drizzle with oil. Bake for 1-2 minutes or until crisp. 

5. Serve the quiches topped with sage leaves and cracked pepper.
