Can I use a regular size muffin tin instead?

Yes! Instead of baking these quiches in a 24-count muffin tin, use a standard 12-count muffin tin. Cut out circles from the pie crust that will fit into the tins (likely a 4-inch cookie cutter) and place one circle into each muffin cup. Continue with the recipe as written and bake for 18-23 minutes, until the tops begin to turn golden brown.

Can I use homemade pie crust?

Absolutely. I love using refrigerated pie dough to save time, but you can certainly make your own to use as the base of these mini quiches. Here is my favorite homemade pie crust recipe!

What should I serve with mini quiches?

These mini quiches are perfect for breakfast on busy mornings – they’ll keep you full and energized. They’re great for brunches, too! Serve with fresh berries or a salad for a delicious bridal/baby shower or holiday brunch.

Storage Instructions

Store mini quiches in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 5 days. Enjoy cold or reheat in a 360°F oven for 10 minutes. If you’re in a hurry, you can reheat them in the microwave, but the pastry bottoms may get a little soggy.

Freezing Instructions

Freeze baked mini quiches in an airtight container for up to 3 months. Let thaw overnight in the refrigerator before heating or add an extra 5 minutes to the reheat time and heat them straight from frozen.

Quiche Variations

Get creative and have fun coming up with your own topping combinations! 2 of my favorites are:

Cheddar and Chive: For cheddar cheese and chive quiches, top each quiche with a pinch (about 1 teaspoon) of grated cheddar cheese before baking and with a slice of chive or green onion before serving.

Bacon and Onion: For bacon and onion quiches, top each quiche with a pinch (about ½ teaspoon each) of minced onion and bacon bits. As long as the onion is minced very finely, there is no need to cook it before adding it to the quiches.

Quiche Tip

When you take the quiches out of the oven, they will be very puffy and will look like they’ve overflowed slightly. Don’t worry! After 1-2 minutes, they will sink and turn out perfectly.
