Yum-yum in my tum-tum.
These mini quiches were a certified crowd pleaser. The ingredients are as simple as the recipe is.
I must admit though. This is one of those, “real food meets reality,” recipes. While a real food purist would make their own pie crust, this mama just doesn’t have the time for that. Maybe in 10 years but until then, I plan to cheat a bit and use the pie crust from a can. (My grandmother just rolled over in her grave.) Sorry grandma.
Here is a quick little video to show you how it all comes together.
Roll out that pie crust and use a circular biscuit cutter to make about 2 inch wide circles. Place them gently in a greased mini muffin tin and press down, being careful to not tear them.
Now the fun part. Add a pinch of each ingredient (spinach, bacon and cheese) to each cup until it is almost full.
In a separate bowl, mix together eggs, milk, salt, and pepper. Pour the egg mixture into the muffin tins until they are completely full.
Pop it all in the oven and let it do its thing.
Out comes a taste of heaven.
Let them cool a bit and then serve them for breakfast, lunch, dinner, snacks, you name it. Your people will not complain.
