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.
How to Make Mini Quiche
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?!

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?
I made these this morning and the they are sooo good. Do you think I could freeze these?
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!
I don’t see the tomatoes listed in the ingredients. How much grape tomatoes did you use? Thank you
I found them at Macys.Kind of pricey though.

These look absolutely delicious! Would love to know where you got the mini pie plates…so cute. Love your site and all the wonderful things you share.
I like reading blogs about Quiches mini. You did really good work on here. I’ll bookmark your site. Thanks, Maria.
I adore quiche and these look so delicious, Jenny!
Those look awesome!
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!
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!
Where did the mini pie plates come from? SUPER cute!
These are absolutely gorgeous, Jenny and so perfect for brunch. That mixer is absolutely beautiful!
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!!!!
Yum! These look so good.
I am BEYOND JEALOUS of that Kitchenaid mixer! It’s gorgeous! Also these little mini quiches are great, so cute!
these look so adorable since you baked them in these mini pie dishes! 🙂 they also look really yummy. ;D
Yum! I love mini breakfast!
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!
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!
I am so in love with that mixer color – it is fantastic!
And these quiche’s are too cute! Love it!
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!!!
Those look so yummy and like a great way to sneak in a lot of veggies! Plus, everything mini always looks and tastes better! 😉
This looks delicious and so pretty! Perfect for a brunch.
Hi, Just wondering where you found the cute mini pie plates? I love them and would like to get some 🙂
These are adorable! I love the big veggie chunks in there too. Looks delicious!
That look great!!!
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!
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!!
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. 🙂
Me too Rachel! Love individual servings! The Pink Mixer sure brightens up my Kitchen 🙂
Too cute!! Can’t resist anything mini!
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!
Cracking up Lori!! It wouldn’t be that unlike me to try Jelly Beans in something like this, lol!!
gorgeous quiches!! love that we’re partnering up with KA this mother’s day!! xo
Yay!! So fun Julie!!
Sorry, I just had to say that that mixer looks so gorgeous in the background 🙂
Thanks Vera!! I agree 🙂
These are so cute! Quiche is delicious and this recipe is right on point. Great idea and great recipe Jenny!
Thank you Ellen!! xoxo
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.
Thank you Averie!! Hope you have a great week!
