How to Make Mini Quiche

  1. Cook bacon.

    Cook bacon in a dry pot until crispy. Use a slotted spoon to drain bacon and set aside in a bowl.

  2. Add shells.

    Lightly grease a large baking sheet. Add phyllo shells.
    Add pastry shells to a baking sheet

  3. Assemble.

    Add 2-3 pieces of bacon to each shell. Add grated parmesan so that each shell is about three-quarters of the way filled.
    Add bacon and cheese to phyllo shells.

  4. Add cream.

    In a container that pours easily, whisk together eggs, cream, and salt and pepper. Very slowly pour cream mixture into each shell so that they’re completely filled. Some of the mixture may overflow out of the shells but that’s okay.
    Add cream mixture.

  5. Add chives.

    Add a pinch of chives to each shell.
    Add chives to each shell.

  6. Bake.

    Bake for 13-16 minutes at 375 degrees until golden.

Mini Quiche Recipe Ingredients

  • Mini phyllo shells – mini phyllo shells can be found in most grocery stores’ frozen section. I use Athens Phyllo Shells (this is not an ad).
  • Parmesan cheese – if you want to splurge, get Parmigiano-Reggiano!
  • Bacon – I like applewood smoked bacon the best.
  • Heavy cream – the cream, mixed with egg creates a soft, delicious quiche filling.
  • Eggs – eggs create a sturdy mini quiche filling.
  • Fresh chives – fresh chives add a pop of green.

Make Ahead, Storage and Reheating

You can make these quiches ahead, although they are most delicious enjoyed right out of the oven.

To store quiches, place in a covered container for 3-4 days, after they’ve completely cooled.

Reheat in the oven at 350 degrees for 5-10 minutes.

I don’t recommend freezing mini quiches.

What to Serve With Mini Quiche

Serve mini quiche as an appetizer, for brunch or dinner! You honestly don’t need anything but these quiches.

If you want something else to munch on with the mini quiche, Crispy Baked Garlic Parmesan Wings, a beautiful Peach and Burrata Salad, Citrus Marinated Olives or an Italian Fennel Orange Salad are just a few of my favorite pairings!

If you’re looking for a brunch pairing, serve mini quiche with toast and Mom’s Homemade Strawberry Preserves or the Ultimate Smoked Salmon Avocado Toast.

Welcome to my kitchen! Cooking and baking with the seasons has been a part of my life since I was just a little kid. Here in New England, seasonal cooking is more than the fresh produce available during that time of year. It’s the “feeling” that you get when making popsicles or grilled meats in the summer, or a warm bowl of pasta in the winter! Whether it’s Spring, Summer, Fall, Winter or any holiday in between, I hope these recipes satisfy your seasonal cravings.
