Easy Mini Quiche Recipe




About: Check out my etsy shop too! etsy.com/shop/scoochmaroo

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!

Try this easy mini-quiche recipe for your next party, brunch, or lazy Sunday. 

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!

Step 4: Bake

Bake the mini quiches at 375 F (190C) for about 30 minutes, or until set.

Cool on a wire rack, and try not to eat them all before the guests arrive! 

I actually love to make these the central food of a Sunday and snack on them for every meal.

    The quiches did not come out of the muffin tins. I buttered and floured the tin but I had to pry them out with a frosting spreader, place on a cookie sheet and continue to brown. I would recommend using non stick muffin tins or using paper cups to cook these in. Barely saved them!

    Oh no! Yes, non-stick is the key. Sorry to hear about your tins :(

    this recipe did not work out very well. The pie crusts stick even though muffin tins were sufficiently greased and the pie crust is almost virtually un-recognizable after cooked. I think the pie crusts should be par baked once fitted into the tins, maybe then they would have somewhat of a pie crust like texture to them. Also, not enough egg in recipe and you should use half and half or heavy cream and milk not just milk.

    Just tried making these with croissant rolls, they turned out fantastic!

    Thanks! Two questions: (1) are your muffin tins full-sized or miniature? and (2) how many does this make? My wife looks forward to making this (and she is a brilliant quiche-maker (quicharista?)). Thanks again.

    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!

    I just made these tonight for my family. Going into the over I was a bit skeptical, but they turned out great! (I've never made quiche before tonight) I uses Pillsbury pie crust in place of your homemade recipe though. Five stars!

    These look great! Seems like it would be perfect make ahead sort of thing for brunch with company.
