Every Christmas, my husband and I go to his Mom’s house for breakfast then do an early dinner at my parents. I like to bring something to each meal. So, this year, I decided to make these mini-quiches for breakfast.
It’s a pretty easy recipe but requires keeping an eye on the cooking.
Here are the ingredients:
– Refrigerated Pie Crust (1) or homemade pate brisee
– 6 eggs
– 3/4 cup of heavy cream
– 3 green onions (scallions), diced
– 1/2 cup of shredded cheddar
– dash of Salt
– dash of Pepper
– dash of freshly ground nutmeg
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Measure your mini muffin pan and select a circle dough cutter that will create the proper size for the pan. Roll out the pie crust dough, use the circle dough cutter and cut out 24 circles. You may need to re-roll the dough once or twice to get enough circles of dough.
Form the dough circles into the mini muffin pan for the quiche crust. Then, add diced green onions and cheddar. (If you don’t have a reliable non-stick pan, please use a non-stick spray before forming the dough in the pan.)
In a medium bowl, whisk together eggs, heavy cream, salt, pepper and nutmeg.
Once mixed, carefully pour the quiche batter into the muffin tins.
Place into the oven for about 15 minutes or until browned on top. Take a look at the crust and ensure its fully cooked. If it’s not, place muffin tin back in for a few more minutes.
Now enjoy!! These are perfect for an appetizer, breakfast or party treat!
