Ingredients

How to Assemble Mini Quiche

Cheddar and Chive Quiche

  • ½ cup cheddar cheese, shredded Note 2
  • 2 Tablespoons chives, chopped, divided

Bacon and Onion Quiche

  • ¼ cup cooked bacon, chopped Note 3
  • ¼ cup finely minced onion

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 400°F. Spray a mini muffin tin with non-stick cooking spray. Set aside.
  • Unroll the pie crust, use a 2" cookie or biscuit cutter to cut rounds from the pie crust.
  • Place one round in each muffin cup.
  • Poke the bottom of each crust with a fork twice.
  • In a large mixing bowl, whisk the eggs, milk, salt, and pepper together.
  • Pour into the tins until each is full and top with the add-ins, if using
  • Bake until the tops begin to turn golden brown, about 15-18 minutes. Serve warm or at room temperature.

Cheddar and Chive Quiche

  • For cheddar and chive quiches, top each quiche with about 1 teaspoon of grated cheddar cheese before baking. Top with a slice of chive or green onion before serving.

Bacon and Onion Quiche

  • For bacon and onion quiches, top each quiche with about ½ teaspoon each of minced onion and bacon bits. As long as you mince the onion very finely, you don’t need to cook it before adding it to the quiches.
  • Important: When you take the quiches out of the oven, they will be very puffy and will look like they’ve overflowed slightly. Don’t worry— after 1-2 minutes, they will sink and turn out perfectly!

Notes

Note 1:  1 or 2% milk can be used. I do not recommend skim milk for this recipe. 
Note 2: Feel free to change up the cheese to any of your favorites. I do recommend you shred the cheese yourself. Pre-shredded cheese has a film on it that makes it hard to melt. 
Note 3: Cooked turkey bacon can also be used in this recipe. 
Storage: Leftover quiche can be kept in an air tight container in the refrigerator for about 5 days. 
Freezer Instructions: Place the quiche on a baking sheet into the freezer until solid. Transfer to a freezer safe storage bag or container in the freezer for up to 3 months.
Defrost in the refrigerator and reheat in the oven at 350°F for a few minutes. 
Reheat leftovers in the microwave for a few seconds or reheat in the oven for about 5 minutes at 350°F.
