Ingredients

  • 12 eggs lightly beaten (see note 1)
  • 1 cup milk (see note 2)
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 pie crusts thawed (homemade or from 1 box store-bought)
  • 8 ounces cooked ham diced (about 1 cup)
  • 8 ounces shredded cheddar cheese (about 2 cups)
  • 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, 1/2 teaspoon salt, and 1/4 teaspoon pepper.
  • Unroll pie crusts. Using a 3-inch round cutter, cut 12 rounds per crust (you may have to re-roll the pie crust to get all the rounds). Press into prepared muffin tins.
  • Place one tablespoon each ham and cheese into each muffin. Divide scallions evenly among all muffins. Pour egg mixture evenly over all 24 cups, filling to within 1/4 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.

Notes

  1. Eggs: 3 cups egg white may be substituted for the whole eggs.
  2. Milk: Heavy cream or half-and-half may be substituted for the milk.
  3. Yield: This recipe makes 24 muffin-tin-sized quiche muffins.
  4. Storage: Store leftovers covered in the refrigerator for up to 4 days.
  5. Freezer: Cool completely, then freeze on a plate or tray until frozen solid. Transfer to a freezer-safe bag and label. To reheat, bake straight from the oven in a 400-degree oven for 5 to 10 minutes. Or, microwave individual quiche muffins for about 2 minutes.
  6. Mini quiche: These tiny appetizers are 2-3 bites each and perfect for parties with lots of choices on the buffet.
  7. Quiche Lorraine: This full-sized quiche is made in a pie plate and perfect for slicing wedges.
  8. Crustless egg muffins: These egg cups are the muffin-sized without a crust.
  9. Flavors: Aim for 3-4 cups filling ingredients total depending on what you choose. Some of my favorite combinations are:
