How Do You Make Mini Quiche?

This mini quiche recipe starts with store bought pie crust, the kind that comes pre-rolled in a box. Unroll your pie crusts, and cut circles out of the crusts with a round cookie cutter or a jar lid. Press the crust circles into a mini muffin pan. Whisk together eggs with cream and seasonings to make the filling for your quiche. Place your flavorings such as ham and cheese in the bottom of each muffin tin. Pour the egg mixture over the top, then bake until golden brown. Remove the bite size quiche from the muffin tin and serve them warm.

Tips For The Perfect Dish

  • Make sure to dice your flavorings into tiny pieces to make sure they fit into the mini muffin cups.
  • Pre-cook any vegetables that you’ll be adding to your mini quiche, otherwise they’ll leach water if they cook in the egg mixture and make your quiche watery.
  • Use an offset spatula to remove the mini quiche from the muffin tin. You can go around the outside of a quiche to loosen it from the tin.
  • You can make your own homemade pie crust instead of a store-bought pie crust if you want. Make sure you roll out your dough evenly if you choose to make your own crust.
  • Feel free to garnish the finished quiche with fresh chopped herbs.
  • Store any leftover quiche in the fridge for up to 3 days.

Quick Tip

You want your pie crust to be chilled or at room temperature. If the pie crust is overly warm it will be hard to cut out.

Recipe FAQs

Can you serve a quiche cold?

Quiche can be served warm, cold or at room temperature. I personally prefer to serve my quiche either warm or at room temperature, only because I think the pastry crust tastes better that way. That being said, it’s simply a matter of personal preference!

Can you freeze quiche?

You can freeze these mini quiche in an airtight container for up to 2 months. To reheat them, place the frozen quiche in a 325 degree F oven and cook until warmed through, about 12-16 minutes.

Can you make mini quiche ahead of time?

You can make these quiche up to 3 days before you plan to serve them. Store the quiche in a covered container in the refrigerator. Reheat in a 325 degree F oven until warmed through, about 8-10 minutes.

Can you use whole milk instead of heavy cream in quiche?

You can use whole milk instead of heavy cream in quiche. If you do use milk, your quiche may be a little fluffier, but also more loose and crumbly.

      1. I don’t pre-bake the crusts because they’re much more likely to shrink if they’re not filled. I haven’t had an issue with sogginess you just want to make sure they’re golden brown when they come out of the oven.

    1. 5 stars
      Great recipe, made 36, spinach red pepper, and feta quiches for a pot luck.
      Fabulous results, lots of compliments so thank you

    2. I made my own pie crust and am making these ahead of a baby shower. Do I cook them completely and then freeze once cooled and then reheat at 350 for.10-15 min the day of the party?
      Or do I freeze them uncooked but with all the filling in the dough?

    3. Directions say to cut 12 rounds from each pie crust. That would be 36 mini quiches not 24. So is this enough filling for 46?

      1. I apologize, this was not correctly stated in the recipe. To clarify, you can get about 9 3-inch rounds per crust, so it’s 24 circles cut from the 3 crusts. I updated the recipe to make it more clear, thanks for catching that!

      1. I haven’t tested the recipe this way so I can’t say for sure, but I’m thinking it would not taste the same.
