These are definely "awesome"! I brought them for a work party today, and everyone loved them (YAY!). I did use phyllo dough instead of regular pie crust. Otherwise, made exactly as directed. THANKS! :-)

I made this last night and it turned out great! I didn't have any green onions, so I used finely chopped regular onion instead. Also, I used Heavy Cream instead of half-and-half. I used 3 eggs and 3/4 cup cream, and yielded 18 quiches in a regular sized muffin pan. I used a glass to cut out 3" circles of pie dough.

These are great, and they look so apetising. I don't have mini muffin tins, so I used standard ones I just didn't fill them all the way up the sides, which made 18 quiches. I used semi skimmed milk instead of cream, to reduce calories a little and gouda instead of the parmesan, as I didn't have any. All the flavours blend really well together. It didn't state in the recipe what to do with the cheese listed in the ingredients so I mixed it in with everything else, before dividing it. Thanks for sharing! :) (Dec 4, 2004) *Update* I forgot to add that these freeze well and can just be defrosted in the fridge overnight. Reheat covered in a medium hot oven if required, approx 15 minutes.
