Eggs/ Gyoza/ Quiche

How to make mini-quiches in Japan when you can’t find puff pastry!

Do you live in Japan and miss puff pastry?

I grew up using puff pastry in Australia, so when I came to Japan I was surprised that I couldn’t buy it so easily. So I found that I never made quiche anymore.

But I LOVE quiche!

It is one of my favorite dishes.

(By the way, if you are looking for a very scrumptious quiche, make sure you order one at Margaret Howell cafe in Tokyo).

So, if you want to make quiche in Japan, here is the perfect alternative!

Gyoza wraps!

I found this in a Japanese blogger magazine and thought it was a wonderful idea.

The gyoza wraps are super easy to use and they help you to create divine little mini-quiches!

Perfect for Hanami cherry blossom picnics with families and entertaining guests 🙂


 What you need:

  • Muffin tray
  • Gyoza wraps
  • Eggs
  • Milk or soy milk
  • Finely chopped vegetables such as spinach, capsicum, onion. Add ham or bacon if desired.

How to make:

  • Super simple to make of course! Watch the 1min video above!

      Thank you Marion! I think the gyoza wraps are made from wheat flour 😉
