Very nice simple recipe…and definitely a crowd pleaser!
Mini Quiche – the BEST & easiest quiche you’ll ever make, in mini size. So creamy, rich, delicious with this fool-proof mini quiche recipe!!!
2-3 slices deli ham, diced
3 scallions, chopped (save 1 teaspoon for garnish)
5 cherry tomatoes, diced
1 extra large eggs or 2 regular-sized eggs
3/8 cup (90g) milk
Vegetable oil for greasing
11-12oz ready rolled short/pie pastry, thawed (follow the instruction on the package)
All purpose flour, for dusting
1/3 cup grated cheese (cheddar/mozzarella)
Preheat the oven to 425°F (210°C). Grease a 12-tin mini muffin pan.
Sprinkle a little all purpose flour on surface, roll out the pastry. If the pastry cracks when rolling out, use your fingers and slightly pinch to seal the crack.
Use a 3″ (7.5cm) round cutter. Cut out 12 circles and place each in a cup of the pan. Gently press down with your finger to form a shallow cup.
Divide the mixture of ham, scallions and tomatoes equally among the 12 cups. Fill each cup with the egg and milk mixture until 80-90% full. Sprinkle the cheese on top.
Bake for 18-20 minutes or until the mini quiches are set and golden. Garnish with some chopped scallions. Serve warm.

Quiche is French pastry crust filled with savory egg custard made with cheese, eggs, ham, meat or vegetables. My co-worker introduced me to quiche many years ago and I have been hooked on quiche since. Quiche is something that I can eat on a daily basis, with some salad, and preferably with a serving of French onion soup. I simply adore the crumbly texture of the pastry crust and the rich, creamy, and utterly delicious filling.
If you eat out or buy from French bakeries, quiche can be quite big. That’s why I love mini quiches—miniature quiche filled with the same ingredients albeit a much smaller size. The smaller package makes mini quiches a perfect party food that everyone can just pick up and savor as a finger food, anytime of the year!
Another bonus of being small, even the picky toddlers and eaters at your home can enjoy it. It’s packed with lots of high-energy ingredients, but more importantly, they are absolutely appetizing and I am sure that the kids will enjoy it as much as an adults.
