Quick and Easy Mini Quiches

Updated on August 17, 2014

Want to Know A Secret?

What's brunch without eggs? Not a brunch I'd want to attend! When you're hosting brunch, though, standing over a stove making eggs isn't much fun (even with a Mimosa in hand).

These little quiches go together easily and can even be made ahead, frozen, and reheated on the morning of your brunch. There's a secret to making them super easy, and you might not believe me when I tell you what it is: a loaf of white bread.

I know, I know, do you even have white bread in the house? But soft white bread gives the mini quiches their distinctive, well, quiche-like texture.

This mini quiche recipe uses pepperoni, but since the quiches are individual, you can easily accommodate the vegetarians in the crowd by using chopped vegetables instead of meat. Freeze the leftovers and you'll have a quick and easy breakfast whenever you need it!

It's time to get out the muffin tin, and let them eat quiche!

You'll need:

12 slices of white bread

18 slices of pepperoni, chopped into approximately ¼ inch pieces

Italian seasoning blend

1 (approx 16 oz) container of egg substitute (i.e., EggBeaters)

1 cup shredded Italian blend cheese

Step 1: Preheat and Prepare

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.

Spray or grease a standard sized muffin pan.

Step 2: Prepare the Quiche "Crust"

Remove the crusts from the bread and save the crusts for another purpose.

Press one slice of bread into each of the muffin cups, making sure the bread corners don't stick up above the rim of the muffin cup.

Step 3: Fill the Mini Quiches

Divide the chopped pepperoni evenly among the muffin cups, sprinkling it on top of the bread. Reserve 12 pieces.

Sprinkle the the seasoning blend on top of the pepperoni.

Fill each cup with the egg mixture.

Sprinkle cheese on top of each of the mini quiches.

Place a piece of pepperoni on the top of each quiche.

Note: The bread will absorb the egg mixture and it will look like you don't have enough. liquid in the quiches. The eggs will expand in the oven. Do not overfill the quiches or they will overflow when baking.

Step 4: Bake the Quiches

Bake for 20 to 25 minutes until the egg mixture is firm and the bread is golden.

Note: The quiches will puff up a bit while they bake. Don't be alarmed! They will shrink when removed from the oven.

Step 5: Remove and Enjoy!

Remove the quiches from the muffin pan and serve immediately.

      Thanks for the tip that we can freeze them. That way I can make them on the weekend and eat them during the week.

      I've never made quiche in a muffin tin. Nice way to be able to prepare small, single servings.

      I think I might try this, though it will be with wholemeal bread, not white :)
