Mini Green Onion Quiche

Diana Rattray
Feel free to use cooked chopped broccoli in place of the green onions in this recipe.

Ingredients:

  • Pie pastry for 2-crust pie
  • 2 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 1 cup thinly sliced green onion, divided
  • 1 cup shredded sharp Cheddar cheese
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • freshly ground black pepper, about 1/8 teaspoon
  • 1 teaspoon Dijon or other spicy mustard
  • 1 cup half-and-half, or half heavy cream and half whole milk

Preparation:

Grease and flour mini muffin pans and heat oven to 400°.

Roll pie crust out to about 1/8-inch thickness. Cut out 2 1/2-inch rounds; fit into the mini muffin cups. Brush pastry with butter.

Sprinkle about 1/2 to 1 teaspoon of green onion into each cup; top with a small amount of shredded cheese.

Whisk together the remaining ingredients; spoon 1 scant tablespoon into each cup, just short of the top of the pastry. Sprinkle each with a little more green onion.

Bake for 20 to 25 minutes, or until set. Makes about 36 mini quiches.

Broccoli & Cheese Quiche Version, Member sabrinatklein

I made this for a bridal shower with premade pie crust and it was delicious! I baked it in a friends convection oven, so I'm not sure if the timing was accurate or not, but it got rave reviews from the attendees. I would definitely make this again.
