These ’80s-Era Mini Quiches Bring the Party

Resist the urge to make these in mini-muffin tins; using full-sized muffin tins is more generous and still counts as finger food. This filling is just a suggestion; you can use any cheese and add blanched minced vegetables, greens, bacon or ham.

Mini Quiches


2 boxes store-bought pie crusts (4 crusts total)
2 cups half and half
4 eggs
1 teaspoon kosher salt
2 cups grated Swiss cheese
½ cup minced scallions


Cut 3 ½-inch-diameter circles from the pie crusts (gather and reroll the scraps if necessary). Place into two nonstick 12-muffin tins, pressing the dough up the sides. Prick bottoms with a fork and refrigerate until cold. Bake for 10 minutes until light golden brown, checking to avoid burning. Don’t worry if the bottoms puff or the edges shrink a little. Set aside.

Whisk half and half, eggs and salt, and pour into a large measuring cup or small pitcher with a spout. Put a heaping tablespoon of cheese into each muffin cup, then 1 teaspoon scallions. Pour egg mixture over, just to barely cover the tops of the crusts. Bake for at least 20 minutes; the filling should be set but still a little jiggly in the centers.

Let cool at least 20 minutes before using a butter knife to carefully remove from tins to a serving dish. Serve warm or at room temperature. Quiches can be refrigerated for up to a day and reheated for 5 minutes at 400°F. Makes 24
