Miniature Quiche

Quiche

Miniature Quiche are awesome for appetizers, snacks, even meals.  You can put what you want in as the filling.  Make it with a crust or without.  You can freeze and reheat them.  They are very versitale for any occasion.

This is a great recipe to have the kids help out with.  You can have them make the dough and get the custard mix ready while you start chopping up the ingredients for the filling.  Have them help make the dough balls after chilling and press into well greased muffin tins, while you saute up the filling.  They can add filling and custard to pastry shells.  It’s fun all around.
