Mini quiche is one of the world's most perfect foods. They're fun to make and even more fun to eat! You can fill them with anything you like, and make them with any kind of crust, or go gluten-free. Make them in a muffin tin, or go super adorable with a mini muffin tin! Better than a normal quiche, they're completely portable and require no utensils. Put a few in your pocket and you're ready to go!

Step 1: Make tiny crusts

I used my fool-proof pie crust recipe for this version, but I have since moved on to using either filo dough or just adding a bit of flour to the egg mixture.  A few layers of filo makes for an awesome crispy crust, but if you just can't get enough pie crust in your day, go for the original!

When using the pie crust recipe, use a biscuit cutter or drinking glass to cut out circles to fit into your mini muffin tins.
When usung filo dough, butter in between each layer, and cut into squares.

Oh an make sure you oil your tins REALLY WELL before lining them with the crusts, ok?

Step 2: Prep fillings

Choose your favorite fillings!

For these beauties, I chose bacon, scallions, tomatoes, and parmesan.  Cook anything that might need it before putting it into the quiche.

The custard filling was made using:
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 1/2 cups milk or half and half (or blend)
  • Salt & pepper
  • Pinch of fresh ground nutmeg
Whisk these ingredients together.

Step 3: Fill tiny crusts

Place the fillings into the pie crusts in the muffin tins. This makes it easier to make sure for an even distribution, or even do some veg and some non-veg.

Pour the custard over the fillings.

As you can see, my custard flowed over the tops of my crusts.  Not a problem at all - just made it so the crusts were sort of embedded into the quiches!

You can omit the dough and use stove top stuffing instead just mix as directed and press Into muffin tins onto bottom and up sides to form a cup shape.
Help! I'm a little confused. Mini muffin tin not regular size, correct? And how many does this recipe make? I would love to make for Christmas breakfast!

These are regulation muffin size, and it made 12. For mini muffins, you can easily get 24!

On a scale of easy, such that 1 is the highest and 10 the lowest, how easy is it?
scoochmaroo (author)  randofo3 years ago
Skip the crust, and it's a solid 3.5. With the crust/filo, I'd take it up a point.
Thanks Scoochmaroo!
Umm....the only easier thing would be buy it already made at the store. This is pretty simple.
