There used to be a buzz line that "Real Men don't eat Quiche." Well, I say real men (and women, and kids too) eat Quiche! How about you?
Gather your Ingredients for Savory Mini Veggie Quiche!
All you need are eggs, milk, cheese, mushrooms, zucchini, onion, fresh garlic, bacon, and pie crust (I use ready made, but you can make your own). You can also use whatever fresh vegetables you have on hand instead.
Chop the veggies to make mini quiche - Chopping is easier with a great chopper!
I use a chopper to chop the zuchinni, mushrooms, onion, and the bacon. A hand food chopper is an invaluable tool in your kitchen.
Roll out and cut your pie crust - Cut out flower shapes to make pretty mini quiche
I use ready made pie crust. I cut the flower shapes out with the bottom of my fluted bread pan or you can use a floral cookie cutter. Reroll and recut the extra crust until you have filled all of the mini muffin cups.
Use a tart tamper to push the mini quiche crust into the mini muffin pan.
A tart tamper assures that your crust is evenly placed in the mini muffin pan's cups.
Get a tart tamper!
Crusts ready to fill!
Aren't they pretty?
Mix all the other ingredients together
Use a small cookie scoop to fill the mini quiche crusts - The small scoop gives the perfect amount every time
It is so easy to fill the mini quiche crust with just the right amount of filling when you use a small cookie scoop!
Get a cookie scoop - Great for quiches, cookies and more!
Bake your Mini Quiche at 375 degrees - Ready to go into the oven!
One pan full is never enough. Get 2 mini muffin tins so you can make 48 appetizers at a time!
Yum! Mini Quiche hot out of the oven!
Now all you need is to put them on a pretty serving plate. My tip for getting your mini quiche out of the muffin pan--gently tap the muffin pan against the stove top when you take the pan out of the oven. This loosens them so they pop out easily!
I love savory appetizers like these mini quiches. But some prefer sweeter appetizers like brownie bites. How about you?
Everyone will love you when you bring these beautiful, delicious Mini Quiche to your next gathering!

Your mini quiche are so cute in their petal shape crusts. Deliciously yummy but the best part is that they are also good for you. What a great breakfast to start the day.
