Mini Bacon Quiche

In the hot days of California Fall, I always start dreaming of Christmas.

And where I come from, nothing says Christmas morning like Bacon Quiche.

My mom has her own special twist on quiche with bacon: She adds broccoli and she makes it in a cake pan and we all cut squares. It’s so great! Possibly the best thing about Christmas morning now that Santa no longer visits me.

When I make Bacon Quiche, though, I make it in miniature form. That way it’s already pre-portioned (I will assign myself a quantity to consume, such as a baker’s dozen) and the small size is great for my kids.

Out of all the Mini Quiches I make, this bacon version is my favorite. It’s basically Quiche Lorraine in miniature form, the sort of thing I always order if it’s offered at a restaurant.

Can you Freeze Homemade Quiche?

Yes! Once you’ve baked and cooled the mini quiches, arrange them in a single layer (not touching) on a baking sheet or plate and put them in the freezer for 30 minutes to 1 hour. Once they are frozen solid, transfer to a freezer-safe bag.

How Long do you cook frozen mini quiches?

  1. To reheat frozen mini quiches in the oven, preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Bake straight from the freezer for 5 to 10 minutes or until the internal temperature reaches 165 degrees.
  2. To reheat frozen mini quiches in the microwave, arrange 10 or so on a plate. Microwave at 50% power for 45 seconds to 1 minute.

Ingredients

  • 2 (15 ounce) packages refrigerated pie crusts

For the Egg Mixture:

  • 4 eggs
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

For the Filling:

  • 12 ounces Swiss cheese grated
  • 12 slices bacon fried and crumbled
  • 8 tablespoons green onion sliced

  1. Place the pie crust pouches to stand at room temperature about 15 to 20 minutes.
  2. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Spray 48 miniature muffin cups with non-stick cooking spray.

  4. In a 4-cup measuring cup, combine the eggs, milk, and the salt. Whisk well. Set aside.
  5. Place one tablespoon of cheese into each of the muffin cups. Evenly divide the chopped bacon among the cups, about 1/2 teaspoon. Top with a couple slices of green onion.

  6. Pour egg mixture into each of the 48 cups, filling to within 1/4 inch of the top. Bake at 375 degrees until golden brown, about 25 to 30 minutes. Cool slightly and serve warm.

  1. As a kid who was a little too into her dollhouse, I am now an adult who is obsessed with tiny and adorable things. I never thought that quiche could be adorable but well, you’ve proven me wrong. And I’m happy about it! :-) 

  2. These mini quiche look cute and delicious. Perfect for serving brunch and when you want finger food. I just made mushroom quiche this week.
