Mini Quiches…The Perfect Appetizer

With Christmas and New Year’s right around the corner, we all need an easy recipe that is also

 delicious and these Mini Quiches are the perfect appetizer for a party, a brunch or just a fun time with friends.

I’ve been making this quiche recipe for over 20 years and it is delicious.

Mini Quiche…

You can find the original post for making this quiche HERE.

Ingredients:

4 eggs
2 cups heavy whipping cream
10 slices of bacon, already cooked and crumbled
One package of chopped spinach, thawed and completely squeezed dry
2 cups of cheddar cheese
1 pie crust, fitted into a quiche baking dish or a pie plate

Directions:

Mix the eggs and the whipping cream together.
Add the spinach, crumbled bacon and cheese and stir to combined.

Set aside while you prepare the pie crust.

Roll out your pie crust and using a small cookie cutter or the bottom of a juice cup,

begin cutting circle shapes that will fit inside your mini muffin pan…

Pretty circles that fit perfectly…

I borrowed this GREAT tool from a friend.

It helps push the pie crust down into the pans without making tears with MY NAILS…

All ready for the filling…

Add your filling…

Bake at 415 for 10 to 12 minutes or until a knife placed into the center

of the quiche comes out clean.  This will depend on YOUR oven…

They really are so pretty…

They make such a great addition to any party…

Here is a photo of the quiche made in one pie shell…

This recipe will either make ONE quiche or 48 mini quiches.

Enjoy!

    • Yes, I have made them ahead and they freeze quite well. I will typically take out a day ahead and let thaw in the refrigerator and then reheat in the oven.

      I think you probably could heat from frozen if you keep them covered with foil to prevent the crust and top from getting too browned.
