Ingredients 

  • 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

Instructions 

  • 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.

  1. 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

  2. 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!

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