Mini Spinach and Cheese Quiche

Tiny little quiche are filled with spinach and cheese for a couple bite of brunch goodness. They are perfect for making ahead and heating and eating later!


    Making mini quiche are perfect on so many fronts.  First of all, it is built in portion control.  Each one comes in at about 100 calories depending on the exact ingredients you use.  They are full of flavor.  The eggs and cheese are great sources of protein and minerals, spinach brings the fiber and vitamins.  Plus they are in a easy grab and go crust.  What's not to love?




    These mini quiche are a great make ahead meal.  The recipe makes a bunch so they are great to make ahead and heat a couple at a time for breakfast.  They are also great for parties!  I made a batch they day before our Easter party.

     The day of I just placed them on a cooling rack over a baking sheet and popped them in the oven.  A few minutes later they were ready to go.  This was a perfect way to reheat them without the bottoms getting soggy.



    You can also pop them in the microwave for 30 seconds to a minute and you are ready to go!  With a batch of these and 36 mini ham and cheese quiche I was able to serve brunch to a crowd without breaking a sweat!

  16. I love these in wonton cups. Anything that strips out half the prep work before a party or brunch is fine with me. And I think everyone loves quiche. Remember the old "real men don't eat quiche"? Funny, I have seen plenty of quiche put away in short order by that demographic. Always a winner.

    1. Every little short cut is definitely welcomed when you have a whole spread to put together. But heck, I'm grateful for a little shortcut here and there any time! And I've seen plenty of men put a hurting on a quiche too! Thank you!
