These make a great alternative to pastry – and you can fill them with simple or gourmet ingredients.
Try making different sizes using mini muffin tins, tex mex, or even one large wrap to line a four-serve quiche dish.
- 4 large plain or flavoured wraps
- 1 tbsp olive oil
- 1 onion, diced
- 1 cup diced ham, bacon, smoked chicken, etc
- 3 eggs
- 1 cup cream
- ½ tsp sea salt
- ½ cup grated mozzarella cheese
- Cherry tomatoes and microgreens or herbs to serve
1 Preheat oven to 180°C. Cut three circles (use a saucer or cutter) from each wrap and press into a medium muffin tin to make a nest that comes up the sides.
2 Heat the oil in a small pan and saute the onion and ham for 3-4 minutes until soft and fragrant. Divide the cheese between the nests and top with a spoonful of onion and ham mixture.
3 Whisk together the eggs, cream and salt and pour over wrap filling (about ¾ full), bake for 12-18 minutes until golden, puffed and set in the middle.
4 Serve garnished with halved cherry tomatoes and microgreens or herbs.
About Jo Wilcox
"I have had a love of food my whole life. Lucky for me my mum allowed me to play in the kitchen from the very beginning – from sitting up on the bench watch her peeling peaches for preserving or planning dinner parties from her many Womans Weekly Cookbooks. Starting in my local beach café, I went onto professional cookery training and my big foodie OE working as a professional chef and nanny. At 21 I launched my first restaurant. The following years saw me owning a gourmet cake and dessert shop and then a pasta deli before I discovered the world of food styling. Today I work in food styling making food look beautiful and tasty in packaging and advertising shoots, as well as my most important role yet – Food Editor of New Zealand Woman’s Weekly. I aim to provide great meal solutions that are interesting and approachable, and of course gorgeous foodie photos that make you want to cook them! I love the feedback and the knowledge that people actually cook them and have great results. If I can give someone a love of cooking and enjoying family meal times and gatherings then my job is done!" See www.jowilcox.co.nzmore of this author
