Are you entertaining for the Holidays?
We have an egg-cellent recipe for a crowd. Fill these Mini Quiche with your favorite cheese, veggies and herbs for a tasty bite!
Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
In a medium bowl, mix flour and salt. Add the butter and using a fork, mix until the dough resembles coarse meal. Pour ice water in a slow, steady stream, until the dough just holds together when pinched. If necessary, add more water. Do not over mix.
Turn the dough onto your work surface and gather into a ball. Divide the dough into two individual pieces, flattening each half into a disk. Cover with plastic wrap, and chill for at least 15 minutes.
After the dough has chilled, divide dough into 24-36 individual pieces (about .3 oz each) on a lightly floured surface. Flatten each piece using fingers and place in mini muffin cups to form a cup for the filling ingredients; make sure to go up sides of the pan too.
Place 1 teaspoon of desired diced vegetables and a sprinkle of cheese into each cup.
In a large bowl, beat the eggs and milk. Add salt, pepper and nutmeg and mix to combine. Then transfer to a squeeze bottle or pour egg mixture directly from bowl into each mini tin, on top of the veggies and cheese, filling the empty space, leaving each one about ⅔ full.
Bake in the oven until set, about 10-15 minutes. Remove from the oven and let cool on a wire rack before serving. Enjoy!
