Introduction: Quiche "Qupcakes!"

Is there a better flavor combination than spinach and feta? I can't think of one! Quiche is one of my favorite foods, but it is so labor intensive to make!!! Here is a recipe for smaller and lighter quiche cupcakes!

Quiche Cupcakes:

Ingredients:

1 10.oz Package of Frozen Spinach, Thawed
3.oz of Feta Cheese, Thawed
2 Small-Medium Onions, Chopped
1 17.oz Package of Puff Pastry
1/4 Cup of Heavy Cream
7-8 Eggs
Olive Oil
Nutmeg
Garlic Powder
Salt and Pepper

Preheat oven to 350.  Spray two twelve cup muffin pans with non-stick spray.  Cut both sheets of puff pastry into thirds, totaling to about 22 squares. Gently press them into the muffin tins, and if they tear carefully press them back together.
In a saute pan set on medium-low, saute the onions in the olive oil until they are clear and then add the spinach. Salt and pepper and cover for three minutes.

In the meantime add the eggs into a metal bowl and whisk until the yolk and white are combined. Add the heavy cream and a pinch of nutmeg and garlic powder, now is also a good time to add salt and pepper! Sprinkle the feta into the bowl and stir again.

Incorporate the spinach and onion into the cheesy creamy egg mixture, and stir it gently. Spoon it into the puff pastry cups filling them almost to the top. If I have any leftover filling, I pour it into an empty muffin tin, for a more diet-friendly option.

Place the cupcakes in the oven and bake them for 30-35 minutes, or until they are a pretty golden.

Take them out and let them cool for 10-15 minutes. And then get ready for a taste sensation!!
These can also be stored in either the fridge or the freezer if you can make it that long without eating them!!! They are perfect for brunch, light lunches and birthday parties!
Enjoy!

You are a genius. I make quiche all the time, but I am really too dumb to think of quiche cupcakes. Thanks for sharing, I will be making these!

Wow! Thank you! I'd love to hear how they turn out for you! I'm crazy about quiche but even crazier about these! I love how easy they are and SO delicious!
Don't forget to salt and pepper!

I freeze mine UNBAKED. Then thaw and bake as needed. A dash of siracha doesn't hurt.

Great idea! I just don't think I have the capability to keep myself from eating them!

I love the siracha for some heat! I like to put it on my pizza too!

It's great to know that I'm not the only one who loves these!!!

Thanks,

I make my own. Oven roasted garlic, fire roasted peppers, touch of oil, touch of salt. Don't last long here. Try hiding the quiches in the bottom under stuff. If it's a pain to get to, you think of other stuff to eat.

I can't imagine how delicious these little babies are! I'll probably add a little mushroom for another tasty note!
Thanks Freckles!
