savory mini quiche

I absolutely love breakfast food and I enjoy making big weekday breakfasts for lazy mornings with Olivia before we really start our day. My husband, on the other hand, who leaves for work at 5:30am, rarely eats breakfast. I wanted to find an easy meal for him to grab on his way out the door, that could be reheated in less than a minute, and still be more filling and nutritious than a granola bar or protein shake. This also is a perfect recipe for entertaining since it can be made ahead of time and rewarmed or served at room temperature!

Cue, mini quiche.


These are so easy and delicious and the perfect appetizer for Easter brunch! The best part is that you can customize them with any flavors or ingredients you want. You can add cheese, other herbs, any type of meat, or keep it really classic and simple. The crust is created using puff pastry and the ingredient list is short and sweet. Enjoy!

+ In a medium bowl, whisk together eggs, cream, salt and pepper / add in bacon and red pepper
+ On a floured surface, roll puff pastry out to a 14x11 inch rectangle
+ Cut 12 rounds from the rolled pastry dough using a 3.5 inch biscuit or cookie cutter
+ Carefully place each round in a muffin cup, pressing down to mold the sides
+ Pour egg mixture into each muffin cup, being sure not to overfill

+ Bake 25 to 30 minutes, until eggs are puffed and pastry is golden-brown
+ Cool on rack 5 minutes and run a paring knife around edges and carefully remove pastries

I hope you all have a wonderful Easter weekend!!
