Cooking in the Classroom

As many of you know, I am very, very fortunate to have an amazing Support Worker in my classroom this year. And, as luck would have it, she is also a trained pastry chef!

She has been taking a cooking group every two weeks and making something delish for us to eat! Kids get to cook once in every two months but they get to eat four times! Good deal, right?!

Last week she made Quiche Lorraine with the kids. And there was so much egg mixture left over that we had quiche not once, but twice! Double Yum!!!!

Here's the recipe she used:

24 frozen mini tart shells thawed

4 eggs
1 1/4 cups milk
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper

6 slices ham
1 cup shredded cheese

To Make Filling:
Place tart shells on rimmed baking sheet; divide ham and cheese among shells.

In bowl, whisk together eggs, milk, salt and pepper; pour into tart shells.

Bake in bottom third of the oven at 375 degrees until pastry is golden and filling is just set (25-30 minutes)

She actually prebaked the shells for a few minutes to avoid the problem we had the last time we used them (they didn't bake through and the 3 o'clock bell was imminent!) but you probably don't need to do that if you are cooking at home.
