Mini Broccoli, Cheddar and Bacon Quiche

Breakfast and Brunch

This is going to be a fun week on Picky Palate!  Mother’s Day Brunch Recipes today, Wednesday and Thursday then a GORGEOUS KitchenAid giveaway first thing Friday.  Click HERE to see what’s up for grabs.  Make sure you stop by to get entered.  I am honored to be partnering with KitchenAid and Cook for the Cure for this Mother’s Day Brunch Menu and upcoming giveaway!

Ok, let’s talk about these mini quiche.  I kinda love making quiche, especially mini ones.  They are really quite adorable.  Don’t worry, they are completely simple to prepare too!  I’ve got step by step photos to prove it.  Any mom would love this for Mother’s Day!  Heck, they are even easy enough to make for yourself for Mother’s Day :)

 

Here’s your line up of ingredients.  Feel free to play around with whatever vegetables you have in the refrigerator that need using.

You are going to fill mini pie plates with cut pieces of pie crust.  I used a store bought pie crust, but use whatever pie crust  recipe you’d like.  Crimp your edges however you like as well.  Little ramekins will work if you don’t have little pie plates.  You can even use one big pie plate if you’d like.  Just adjust the cooking time accordingly.

Time to saute the vegetables.

Add the broccoli, cook and stir for a good 10 minutes then set the pan aside.

Attach your wire whisk to your mixer and let’s go!

Eggs, eggs and more eggs :)  8 to be exact.

A couple pinches of salt please.

Don’t forget the pepper.

Whisk, whisk whisk!

Time to full em’ up.  About 3/4 way full.

Like so :)

Add your sauteed veggies.

Now add your bacon pieces and some cheese.  Time to bake!

Remove from the oven and get ready to indulge :)

 

How fun is this?!

Mini Broccoli, Cheddar and Bacon Quiche

8 large eggs

1/4 cup milk

1 1/2 teaspoons kosher salt

1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil

1/2 cup finely chopped onion

2 cups broccoli florets

1 cup cooked, crumbled bacon pieces

1 cup shredded cheddar cheese

1. Preheat oven to 35o degrees F. and place round cuts of pie crust into 4 mini pie plates or ramekins. Partially bake crusts for 10 minutes then remove from oven.

2. Place eggs, milk, salt and pepper into stand mixer with the whisk attachment in place. Whisk until well combined, about 20 seconds. Set aside.

3. Heat olive oil in large skillet over medium heat. Saute onions for about 5 minutes then add broccoli florets, stirring and cooking for about 3 minutes. Remove from heat and set aside.

4. Pour egg mixture evenly into the 4 pie dough lined pie plates. Top evenly with onion, broccoli, bacon and cheese. Bake for 22-27 minutes, until eggs are cooked through. Serve warm.

Makes 4 quiche

    Oh adorable little quiches! And I love that you put tomatoes in them. I love tomatoes in unexpected places like this or on pizza or inside grilled cheese sandwiches.

    omg, I could not- for the life of me- figure out why you were putting red jellybeans into your sauté pan!! It literally took me about 5 min. to figure out that they were tomatoes. Oh, Lordy… must be early. These are cutie pie little quiches!

    I love the personalized sizes. They’re so customizable too which is great. I’m in love with your mixer. I think I need an upgrade from my basic white one. :)

    you take the most beautiful pictures, like even of salt, and that kitchen aid mixer color is to die for.. it’s like hot pink. Gorgeous! Gorgeous quiches.. although I don’t eat bacon, I’m sure these would taste phenomenal with just broccoli and cheddar. Delicious!

    Love the idea of mini quiches. I have the ramekins and I have a daughter who is vegetarian, so I’ll sub veggie bacon and have a meal everyone will eat. Excellent photos. Yay Friday and Kitchen Aid!

    Yum! I love mini breakfast!

    I’m with Rebecca…wondering where you found those adorable mini pie plates? Soooo cute…and the recipe looks delicious! Can’t wait to try! Thanks for sharing!

    Love this! What a fun breakfast! I definitely need to get me some of those individual serving pie dishes. Maybe they would distract my kids from the broccoli. Well, a girl can dream!

    [...] Let’s start with all you special-occasion cooks. If you’re planning to celebrate Mom with a nice brunch, then I think these mini quiches with broccoli, bacon and cheddar definitely belong on the menu. They look elegant and time-consuming, but they’re actually dead simple with store-bought pie crusts, some sauteed veggies and eggs whipped up in a mixer.  Make extra, freeze them & treat yourself to a nice brunchy-like breakfast on ordinary days too! (Picky Palate) [...]

      My mom said that when I was very young, I loved vegetables. Peas and corarts were my favorites. I rejected vegetables once I got the message that vegetables are good but they’re good for you and you’re supposed to eat them, but kids don’t really like them. Perhaps more kids would like vegetables if they were just presented as things that taste good, rather than what you’re supposed to eat.

    Thank you for making the “Print” option so easy!!! I make mini quiche in muffin tins for bite size appetizers; however, I love this idea.
