What's better than quiche? Mini quiches!


  • 2 large eggs

  • 1/2 cup milk

  • 1 cup cheese, (any kind except processed), shredded

  • 1 cup cooked vegetables, (such as broccoli, spinach, carrots or zucchini) or meat (bacon or ham), or both, finely chopped

  • 12 small (3-in.) unbaked tart shells, (homemade or frozen)


  • In a large bowl, beat together the eggs with the milk until foamy. Add the shredded cheese and chopped cooked vegetables (or whatever) and mix until thoroughly combined. If you have a food processor, process the eggs and milk first, then add the cheese and vegetables afterwards—but be careful to chop, not puree. Season with salt and pepper.

  • Have your child spoon the filling (carefully!) into the tart shells, dividing it evenly between them.

  • Bake quiches at 350°F (180°F)for 20 minutes, until puffed in the middle and very lightly browned.

  • Serve hot or at room temperature.
