Mini Broccoli, Cheddar and Bacon Quiche

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 ๐Ÿ™‚


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 ๐Ÿ™‚  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 ๐Ÿ™‚

Add your sauteed veggies.

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

Remove from the oven and get ready to indulge ๐Ÿ™‚


How fun is this?!


Mini Broccoli, Cheddar and Bacon Quiche

8 large eggs

1/4 cup milk

1 1/2 teaspoons kosher salt

2 cups broccoli florets

1 cup cooked, crumbled bacon pieces

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.

  1. omg, I could not- for the life of me- figure out why you were putting red jellybeans into your sautรฉ 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!

  2. These look so good! I love that you used ready made pie crusts…I wouldn’t know what to do without them. I will so be trying these!

    1. I have a great recipe coming up in my cookbook for a homemade pie crust, but I love having the pre made ones on hand for quick fixes like this!!

    Those look so yummy and like a great way to sneak in a lot of veggies! Plus, everything mini always looks and tastes better! ๐Ÿ˜‰

  5. I’m just trying to come up with a new name so when I put it in front of my husband he doesn’t roll his eyes and say — ewwwww…quiche?!?!? Looks yummy!! and the mixer is the awesomest!!!

  6. 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!

  7. 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!

  8. I was going through my new issue of Family Circle magazine last night and ran across someone I thought looked very familiar. Sure enough it was you in a cool whip add!! Congratulations!!!!

    I don’t see the tomatoes listed in the ingredients. How much grape tomatoes did you use? Thank you

  12. Why on earth do so many people make comments on recipes when they have not even tried the recipe? … Really ? They like you mixer …and have never tried this recipe? This is totally UNhelpful … and stupid!
    People, come on!

  13. When I originally commented I seem to have clicked the -Notify
    me when new comments are added- checkbox and from
    now on each time a comment is added I receive 4 emails with the same comment.
    Perhaps there is a way you can remove me from that service?
