Mushroom Quiche-Mini Pies

Updated on May 23, 2014

I love mini foods because they give me the opportunity to taste so many different bites of goodness. These Mushroom Quiche Mini Pies fit right into that category. The buttery cheese filling combined with the flaky pie crust make these some of the tastiest breakfast bites around. Serve with fresh fruit and potatoes for a delicious meal fit for a king and queen.

Fun tip: When making these pies try changing an ingredient in each one. Assorted cheeses, veggies or seasonings are all good choices.

Serving Size

Serves: 12

Ingredients

  • 1 pkg. refrigerated pie crust
  • cooking spray
  • 2 1/2 cups shredded Swiss cheese
  • 2 eggs, lightly beaten
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1 cup chopped mushrooms
  • 1/4 cup minced onion
  • 1/4 cup snipped fresh parsley
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • dash of ground red pepper

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 375F.
  2. Using a 3 inch biscuit cutter (I use the top of a glass) cut circles of pie crust and press each one into a muffin cup and up the sides.
  3. Spray top of muffin pan with cooking spray.
  4. Place 2 tbsp. Swiss cheese in each muffin cup.
  5. Combine remaining ingredients and divide among muffin cups filling 3/4 of the way full.
  6. Bake for 30-35 minutes or until crust is browned and eggs are set.

      I love quiche, but I've never made it myself. Your recipe seems easy enough so perhaps I'll give it a shot!

      @Johanna Eisler: Thanks! The cooking spray makes it easy to remove the pies in case there is any overflow of egg mixture onto the muffin pan.

      Looks and sounds delicious. Pardon me if I'm a little dense, but why do you spray the top of the muffin pan with cooking spray?

      Those look positively scrumptious AND easy to make. These would be lovely to make ahead for quick breakfasts on the run, and what a great addition to a brunch buffet table. Congratulations on your feature on the "What's for Breakfast Squidoo?" page.
