Quiche Muffins are going to be your new weekday BFF: Break-fast Friend. You can even make a big batch and freeze them; they reheat in just a few minutes, in the oven or microwave. You can also leave out the crust in case you’re watching carbs.
Somewhere between Mini Quiches and Full-Size Quiches are Quiche Muffins, a delicious baked egg breakfast the size of a regular muffin. These breakfast quiches are perfect for lazy weekends, but they’re special enough for Mother’s Day brunches or baby showers, too.
I keep a bag of these little quiches in the freezer to pull out on frantic mornings when everyone, including me, is running late.
Best of all, these don’t cost an arm and a leg like they do at Panera or Starbucks, so you can still splurge on that Flat White. Budget-friendly mini quiche muffins for the win.
How do you make Quiche Muffins?
This recipe for 2 dozen Quiche Muffins with crust is easy to make. Here’s how:
- Cut store-bought pie crust (found in the freezer or refrigerated section at the grocery) into circles using a 3” biscuit cutter.
- Press circles into a muffin tin.
- Add ham, cheese, and top with scallions.
- Pour in egg mixture to 1/4” from the top of each cup.
- Bake at 375 degrees to golden brown, bubbly perfection.
How do you make Crustless Quiche Muffins?
If you’re watching your carbs, it makes sense that you’re looking for egg quiche, no crust, right?
Just follow my recipe for Egg Muffins and you’ll be on your low-carb way. Without the crust, these egg muffins are keto friendly and gluten-free. And if you pick filling ingredients correctly, they’ll be Paleo too!

How do you reheat Quiche Muffins?

Quiche Muffin Recipe
- 12 eggs lightly beaten
- 1 cup milk
- Salt and freshly ground black pepper
- 2 pie crusts thawed (homemade or from 1 box store-bought)
- 8 ounces diced cooked ham
- 8 ounces shredded cheddar cheese
- 2 scallions thinly sliced
- Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Coat two muffin tins with nonstick spray. In a large bowl, whisk together eggs, milk, ½ teaspoon salt, and ¼ teaspoon pepper.
- Open and unroll one pie crust. With a 3-inch biscuit cutter, cut 12 rounds (or cut as many as you can and re-roll to cut additional. One crust will yield 12 3-inch crusts). Repeat with second crust and press into muffin tins prepared with non-stick cooking spray.
- Place one tablespoon each ham and cheese into each muffin. Divide scallions evenly among all muffin cups. Pour egg mixture evenly over all 24 cups, filling to within ¼ inch of the top.
- Bake at 375 degrees or until golden brown, about 25 to 30 minutes (remove a few to check that the crust is cooked completely on the bottom). Cool slightly and serve warm.
To freeze the muffins:
- Cool and transfer to a single layer on a plate. Freeze until solid, at least 30 minutes, then transfer to a freezer-safe bag. Freeze up to 2 months.
To reheat the muffins:
- Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Bake them straight from the freezer, about 5 to 10 minutes.
