Sinéad Delahunty is a Tipperary physiotherapist, food blogger, and Gaelic footballer and will be at Dualla Show this year demonstrating fantastic recipes from the first cookbook ‘DELALICIOUS’. Sinéad’s recipes embrace the natural food around us and will inspire you to eat for better health and boundless energy. You will also have the opportunity to purchase a signed copy of her cookbook. In the meantime, Sinéad has kindly shared one of her cupcake quiche recipes with us here at Dualla Show. These quiches make a great brunch option or are perfect as a fuss-free lunch or post-exercise option. Simply make a big batch and keep in the freezer for when you need them.
Swap the mackerel for your favourite fish or use up leftover ham, chicken or turkey instead. You can keep these quiches completely vegetarian too by simply increasing the quantity of vegetables.
Makes 12 cupcakes.
- 4 eggs
- 150ml milk
- 2 smoked mackerel fillets, flaked
- 10 cherry tomatoes, halved
- 2 spring onions, finely sliced
- 5 medium mushrooms, finely sliced
- 50g feta cheese, cubed
- Freshly ground pepper
- 2 large handfuls kale/spinach, roughly chopped
- 2 tsp sweet chilli sauce
- Preheat an oven to 180°C/160°C fan/350°F and line a cupcake tray with silicone cases or else grease each section with some oil.
- Whisk the eggs and milk together in a large mixing bowl.
- Add in the mackerel, vegetables and feta.
- Season with some pepper and whisk all the ingredients together.
- Evenly pour the mixture amongst the cases and bake in the oven for 30 minutes or until a skewer comes out cleanly.
- Leave to cool in the cases and gently ease out onto a wire rack.
- To serve: dry fry the kale or spinach in a frying pan over a medium heat until it begins to wilt (use a microwave either on high for 2 minutes), transfer to a plate and stack the cupcakes on top. Sprinkle over the sweet chilli sauce.
