  1. I am confused about the proportions in this recipe. The regular size muffin quiches require 12 eggs, one cup of milk and 2 pie crusts. The mini-muffin recipe requires 4 eggs, 1 cup of milk and 4 pie crusts? The proportions seems way off. Can you clarify why there are so many eggs required for 24 regular sized muffin quiches.

    1. Hi Judy, since the mini ones are so much smaller, they require less egg for the filling. The tablespoon of cheese in the mini ones almost fills them up. The larger ones have more volume is all. Great question, thank you for taking the time to comment. – Meggan

  2. Hi there! So I have to transport my quiches to a restaurant where we’re having a wedding shower. Can I leave them cold till I get there and then put them in the oven for 2 1/2 hours on warm because I have to be at the shower early and I’m not sure if they can be in an oven on warm for two hours and still be on the warmer side.

  3. If I want to refrigerate the leftovers will that be OK the next day or will the crust be soggy and what should I reheat the oven for to warm them up and how long.

    1. Hi Marilyn, I recommend freezing them and baking them in a 400-degree oven straight from frozen for 5 to 10 minutes. – Meggan

  4. My favorite breakfast recipe! I make a dozen every other Sunday so I have breakfast for the next two weeks. They freeze and reheat great, which makes my weekday breakfast super easy. Plus, they’re delicious! I’ve tried a few different filling combos and have loved them all. It’s so easy to customize this recipe, and it comes our great every time.5 stars

  5. Luckily I made these in two batches because I made some changes for the second pan. When you put the pie crust in the cups, do you attempt to flatten it and push it up to the top of the cup? I did not understand that I should do that the first time, so the crust was only on the bottom half of the muffin and it was pretty soggy and greasy. You couldn’t even see the crust without looking for it, unlike the lovely little quiche cups you have in your picture. For the second half, I at first tried to use my fingers to spread the dough to the top of the muffin cup, but that was only halfway successful. For the rest I just rolled the 3” circles I had already cut to be bigger and flatter and that worked much better. I still wonder, though, if it would help to pre-bake the crust for a few minutes to make them crispier. Thoughts?

    1. Hi Lauren, I am so sorry the instructions weren’t clear. It should have said “press into the bottom and up the sides of the muffin tin” for the crust. My mini quiche version says that, I don’t know why I didn’t write that here! I’m going to fix it. I’m not sure about pre-baking the crust, it might work great, but I don’t really know for sure. -Meggan

    1. Hi Patricia, yes, you should spray them. I’m sorry that I missed that in the instructions. I will update now!

  6. So yum! I like to make these ahead of time and eat them for breakfast before work. So simple and tasty!5 stars
