Mini-Quiches (Recipe)

March 18th, 2010

I bet y’all were starting to think that I was never going to share that Mini-quiche recipe, but here I am. You know what they say, better late than never, and I have to say that this is my favorite ‘go to’ recipe when I need a quick something to take to a brunch, or even if I’m having a little luncheon. They are perfect for parties when made in mini-muffin tins, and also great when used in a regular muffin tin. They freeze well and can be thawed and heated in the oven. I personally don’t recommend that you heat them in the microwave, simply because the crust gets soggy.

Now, without further ramblings, the recipe:

Lori’s  “Go To” Mini Quiches

  • 1   8 ounce package cream cheese, room temperature
  • 2  Tablespoons milk
  • 2 large eggs, beaten
  • 1 cup shredded cheese, (I use sharp)
  • 1/4- 1/2 cup diced green onions
  • dash of Tabasco or cayenne pepper (or both if you like it spicy)
  • Cooked crumbled bacon to taste
  • Puff Pastry dough

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.  

Use a glass or round cookie cutter to make circles in the puff pastry dough and line each one of the muffin cups with the puff pastry dough. Press into the forms.  

Mix the eggs, cream cheese, milk and Tabasco until well blended (no lumps from the cream cheese should be visible) .   Stir in the green onions and the cheese.     Carefully spoon the mixture into equal amounts into the muffin cups and then top with crumbled bacon (or ham)   pressing lightly into the egg mixture.  

Pop in the oven and bake anywhere from 15-25 minutes depending on whether you use regular or mini- muffin pans.    The eggs will rise a little and they are done when the eggs are set.   Serve immediately, or can be reheated in the oven to keep the puff pastry perfect and buttery as opposed to soggy. 

Enjoy!  Let me know if you make them and what you think about them!

    This sounds delicious. I plan to try it but use an egg substitute. I’ll let you know how it turns out.
