Step 1: Ingredients

Picture of Ingredients

- 1.5 cups of diced onions
- 2 cups diced mushrooms
- 1 cup shredded spinach
- 1 cup of broccoli (heads only)
- 3 to 4 eggs (depending on size)
- 1/3 cup of milk
- 1 box of pie crust (or homemade but mine always turns out flaky and gross)
- 1 cup shredded cheddar (add another cup for cheeseheads)
- 1 tbl garlic
- 1/2 tspn paprika
- 1/2 tspn salt
- 1/4 tspn nutmeg
- pepper for taste

Step 2: Form Crust

Tare pie crust to fit in cupcake molds. Make sure there are no gaps and that the crust lips over so no ingredients get stuck to the pan.

Step 3: Prep Broccoli

We're going to blanch the broccoli.
First we need to set a pot with water and a strainer on mid-high heat.
We'll let the broccoli sit here for about 10 minutes. During that time we'll go to the next step.

Step 4: Mix Dry Ingredients in a Bowl

1 cup shredded cheddar
Set aside for a step ahead.

Step 5: Cool Broccoli

Step 6: Mix Wet Ingredients

In a bowl mix
- 3 to 4 eggs
- 1/3 cup of milk
- 1/2 tspn paprika
- 1/4 tspn nutmeg
- 1/2 tspn salt
Pepper for taste
Mix well.

Step 7: Add Ingredients

Stack dry ingredients, don't hesitate to pack these well. I only put around 2 soup spoons of wet mix per quiche. If you want this to be more mushy you'll need to make more wet mix.
And add your broccoli as a beautiful center topping.

Step 8: Set in Oven

Preheat oven to 325F
Set timer for 35 minutes
Place quiches in the oven
Once time goes off raise oven temp to 400F
Add another 10 to 15 minutes.
Check one of your quiches with a toothpick.

Does this just make 12 muffin size quiches? It looks like the mix could make 24 maybe

It depends on how much veggie mix you have. 3-4 medium sized eggs should be just enough but if you go jumbo you'll probably end up with too much egg mixture. I would recommend filling up the mini-quiches with just a little bit of veggie mix, use all of your egg mix and then top off the quiches.

Thanks for your reply. I ended up combining some of these ingredients with another recipe I had, so that way it made two batches.

There's a "Real Men Don't Eat Quiche" joke in there somewhere...but I'll say this for sure—if those were in front of me, I'd be eating them. They look fantastic.
