Bacon Cheddar Mini Quiches

Thanks for SHARING!

Mini quiches with bacon and cheddar are bite-sized delights! Easy to make, they’re always a big hit for breakfast or as appetizers.

The tiny quiches are made from miniature phyllo shells that are light, crispy, pretty and (best of all) pre-made and ready to fill! 

The shells are available in the freezer section of many grocery stores. Look for them in the frozen appetizer section or in the freezer case near the pie crusts and puff pastry. If you can’t find the phyllo shells at your local store, you can order them from Amazon (that’s an affiliate link). Or you can even make your own.

These tiny quiches could not be easier to make! Arrange them on parchment lined baking sheets and add a generous sprinkle of crumbled bacon bits.

Make Ahead Baby Quiches and Freeze

These baby quiches freeze nicely for up to 1 month. Just pack them carefully. I cushion them in wax paper before layering them in a plastic freezer container. Reheat in a  350 degree F oven for about 10 to 12 minutes or until heated through.

Yield: 30 pieces
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 11 minutes
Additional Time: 5 minutes
Total Time: 26 minutes

Mini quiches with bacon and cheddar are bite-sized delights! Easy to make, they’re always a big hit for breakfast or as appetizers.

Ingredients

  • 2 packages (1.9 ounces) baked miniature phyllo shells like Athens Mini Fillo Shells
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 3 slices bacon, cooked and finely crumbled
  • salt and pepper
  • 1/2 cup finely shredded cheddar cheese

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven 350 degrees F and line a baking sheet with parchment.  Arrange the phyllo cups on the baking sheet.
  2. In a medium bowl, combine the eggs and milk and whisk until well combined. Pour the egg mixture in a measuring cup with a spout.
  3. Sprinkle the crumbled bacon in the phyllo cups. Use the measuring cup to carefully pour a little of the egg mixture in each cup, leaving about 1/8 inch at the top for the mixture to rise when baking. (Don’t overfill. You may have a little egg mixture left over.) Sprinkle cups with salt and pepper.
  4. Bake for 5 minutes to set, and remove from the oven.
  5. Sprinkle the cups with the cheese and return to the oven. Bake for another 6 minutes, or until the centers are firm and the quiches are lightly browned.
  6. Remove from oven and cool on a wire rack for 5 minutes. Serve hot. Makes 30 mini quiches, or about 8 servings.

Notes

Refrigerate any leftover quiches wrapped or in a covered container for up to 2 days. Reheat in a 350 degree F oven for about 5 minutes, or until heated through.
