With Spring in full bloom around here I'm breaking out my recipe book and testing old and new brunch type recipes for the upcoming get togethers.
One of my all time favorites to serve at a brunch or get together is Mini Quiche Bites.
They are the perfect bite of pie crust, egg, cheese, and veggie and the perfect way to get all of those ingredients into your kiddos without them knowing.
These are super tasty, full of flavor, and everybody loves them.
These quiche bites are very versatile because you can add or subtract any of the ingredients you do or don't like and add your favorites too.
These make the perfect addition to any get together as an appetizer or even part of a brunch and travel very well.
Here's what you need:
3 ex. large eggs, at room temperature
1/4 cup cream or 1/2 & 1/2
1/2 tsp. salt
3/4 cup shredded Swiss cheese
2 -3 mushrooms, cleaned and minced
1/4 red bell pepper, cleaned and minced
1/2 cup minced ham
1 green onion, minced
single recipe pie crust or store bought pie crusts
Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
In a medium bowl beat the eggs and cream until well combined and frothy. Add the rest of the ingredients and mix well. Set aside.
Fill mini muffin tins with pie crust either by rolling out store bought crust and using a circle cookie or biscuit cutter to cut rounds and place in the muffin wells; or if using homemade dough pinch off a walnut size piece and using a tart shaper press until the dough fills the well.
Fill each well with an even amount of the filling, about 1 tablespoon.
Bake for 20 - 23 minutes or until done. When the quiche are done they will not be jiggly in the center. You may also test with a knife inserted into the center of one and if it comes out clean the quiche are done.
They will be slightly puffy when they are done cooking.
Mmm mmm they are so tasty right out of the oven but be careful, they are H.O.T. They may be served warm or at room temperature.
These quiche are the perfect party appetizer or weekend brunch bite.
Serves - 24- 30 approx.
