With the King's Coronation on Saturday, Toni decided to try out the Coronation Quiche for herself - with a few tweaks of course! 

This version may technically be a pie but it's pretty good, featuring spinach, peas, eggs, cream cheese, puff pastry, tarragon & cheese, it's definitely worth giving this a go!

Toni's Coronation "quiche" recipe: 


  • 1 x 250g Puff Pastry


  • 125ml milk
  • 175ml double cream
  • 2 medium eggs
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh tarragon
  • 350g cream cheese
  • Salt and pepper
  • 100g grated cheese
  • 180g cooked spinach, lightly chopped
  • 60g cooked peas 


  1. Lightly flour the work surface and roll out the pastry to a circle a little larger than the top of the tin and approximately 5mm thick.
  2. Line the tin with pastry, taking care not to have any holes or the mixture could leak. 
  3. Preheat the oven to 160C.
  4. Beat together the milk, cream, eggs, herbs and seasoning. Set aside a small amount of eggs to brush over top of the pastry at the end.
  5. Scatter half of the grated cheese in the base, top with the chopped spinach and beans and herbs, then pour over the liquid mixture.
  6. If required gently give the mixture a delicate stir to ensure the filling is evenly dispersed but be careful not to damage the pastry case.
  7. Sprinkle over the remaining cheese and top with the remaining pastry, brush with egg yolk.
  8. Place into the oven and bake for 20-25 minutes until set and lightly golden.
