What is a quiche?
A quiche is quite simple a little tart. The French gave us quiche, and it’s one of the the world’s most versatile dishes! Quiche can be made in the form of a regular sized pie (with a pie crust), or in mini form like we are doing with this recipe. Serve quiche cool, warm, or at room temperature. Quiche is an egg-based custard dish that is generally paired with different chesse and meats or seafood along with some fresh herbs or vegetables. Quiche hs been loved for hundreds of years! For this recipe – Mini Quiche Appetizers (Onion & Cheese) we’ll take a simple, and elegant recipe and use it as an appetizer!
Fresh ingredients are really the hallmark of a nicely made quiche. In this recipe I used fresh, organic green onions.
What’s the difference between a quiche and a fritatta?
- One is baked, and one is “fried”.
- A quiche is cooked in a pie plate and a fritatta is most commonly made in a skillet.
- Fritatta don’t include nearly as much dairy as a quiche.
- 4 sheets of thawed puff pastry dough (keep your dough covered with a damp towel while prepping so they don't dry out).
- 3 green onions, sliced to slivers.
- 1/2 cup gruyere cheese, shredded
- 3 large eggs, scrambled
- 2/3 cup heavy cream
- 1/2 cup whole milk
- Spray a 24 count mini muffin pan with non-stick cooking spray.
- Cut out 3" rounds of your puff pastry dough using a circle shaped cutter. (NOTE: You can find puff pastry shells that are pre-cut during the holidays at the grocery store). Place the rounds into each of the mini muffin pan openings
- Add 1 tsp of the onions and 1 tsp of the shredded cheese into each pastry cup.
- Fill up to near the top with beaten egg mixture.
- Season with salt and pepper to taste.
- Cook at 300 degrees for 25 minutes.
- Remove from muffin tins and enjoy!
- These mini quiche can be enjoyed warm or at room temperature which makes them really easy to use as an appetizer for your party!
- Change out the green onions for shallots for a more subtle taste!
- Top with microgreens for an appetizing pop of color!
