Yield: 36 bite-sized quiches
- 1 recipe Flaky Pie Crust, gluten-free
- 1 extra-large egg (about 1/4 cup)
- 1/2 cup milk
- 1/2 cup grated cheese of your choice (I like cheddar and parmesan)
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1/4 teaspoon freshly grated pepper
- 1 teaspoon dried basil, dill, or tarragon, or a herb(s) of your choice
- 1/4 cup (optional) roasted veggies of your choice, chopped
- Make and refrigerate pie crust for recommended amount of time.
- Have ready a 24 cup or 2-12 cup mini-muffin pans.
- When dough is ready to be rolled, preheat oven to 400 degrees F/204 C/Gas Mark 6
- Place dough between 2 pieces of waxed paper (or plastic wrap) and roll out to 1/8 inch thick (no thinner).
- Cut out rounds with a 2 1/4 inch round cookie cutter. Place each round on the top of a mini-muffin pan cup and gently press down to form a cup with the dough. Repair and tears by smoothing dough with your fingers.
- Repeat dough rolling, cutting, and placing in cups procedure until 24 mini-muffin cups are filled.
- With a fork, pierce the bottom of each dough shell.
- Bake shells at 400 degrees F until lightly brown, about 10 minutes.
- While shells are baking, make your filling.
- In a large bowl, whisk egg until bubbly. Add remainder of ingredients and whisk until well combined.
- Remove baked shells from the oven.
- With a teaspoon, fill each shell to the top of the dough line. This will be about 1 full teaspoon. Be sure to dip down all the way into the filling mixture with the spoon in order to scoop out the grated cheese and veggies (if using).
- Once all of the shells are filled, bake at 400 degrees F for about 12 minutes--until the filling is puffed and the top is slightly brown.
- Remove from oven and set pan on a wire rack to cool completely (filling will deflate as quiches cool).
- Repeat process with remainder of the dough and filling. You should be able to get another 12 mini-quiches out of it.
- Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 5 days or in the freezer for up to 2 months.
