Perfect for Brunch

I don’t know about you but I could eat breakfast for lunch and dinner! I love breakfast foods that are quick, easy and delicious!

Brunch is the perfect time to socialize with your family or friends. It is meant to be a relaxing meal where stories and social interactions take the spotlight! That is why our mini quiches are the perfect brunch food! 

These mini quiches can be prepped ahead of time, so no one is stuck cooking or cleaning in the kitchen during the brunch party! And because they are already individually portioned, no one has to serve, and everyone can quickly fill their plate and enjoy their time together! 

Plus our quiches can be filled with a variety of add-ins that will enhance the flavors and fill your bellies!

How to Make Mini Quiche

The Crust:

  • Use frozen pie dough crust- 2 rounds of dough, thawed for 20 minutes
  • Make your own pie dough crust- I love the pie dough recipe found here.
  • Omit the crust all together- a great option for keto, gluten-free and low carb diets

Unfold one pie crust and use your fingers to smooth out any lines or creases. Next, take a 2 1/2-inch or 3-inch cookie cutter (round or fluted) and cut 12 crusts. You may need to roll some of the scraps to get 12. Repeat with the second pie crust.

Then carefully press the crusts into the bottoms of the mini muffin molds. It’s important that the crust reaches the top edge of the muffin pan. You may need to press them gently with your fingers to slightly stretch out the crust.

The Base:

  •  6 eggs
  •  1 c. half and half
  •  1/2 tsp. salt
  •  1/2 tsp. ground black pepper

Mix together the eggs, half and half, salt and pepper in a large mixing bowl. Next, add in your desired mix-ins and then divide this mixture evenly between the 12 crusts. 

Bake for 16-22 minutes, or until the crust is golden brown and the filling is set,  in a 375-degree oven. 

Once you remove the quiches from the oven, allow them to cool for 5 minutes before removing from the pan and serving.

Storing, Making Ahead + Freezing Mini Quiche

Can you meal prep these? You can mix the egg mixture the night before and keep it tightly covered in the fridge overnight and then you can precut the pie crust circles and leave them in the pan in the fridge overnight as well. Then in the morning while you are preheating the oven you can put everything together.

How to keep them warm for parties? You need to refrigerate them after 2 hours of them being out. Typically they are eaten at room temperature, but if they are left out for too long they can spoil. Make sure to keep them in a chafing dish or another food heating system. 

Can you freeze quiche? Yes! Let them cool completely and then flash freeze them in the pan for 30 minutes before taking them out of the pan and placing them in a freezer-safe bag for up to 2 months.

How to reheat quiche? To reheat frozen quiche, put them in the oven at 375 for 8-10 minutes. Or reheat quiche from the refrigerator by microwaving at half power for 1 minute, or in a mini oven at 375 degrees for 6-8 minutes.
