Italian Sausage Quiche Cups

Flavorful Italian sausage and onion topped with a cloud of creamy cheesy quiche flavored with basil and surrounded by a buttery biscuit crust. The sriracha is optional because it is a 7th contest ingredient, it does tie in well with the Swiss cheese and basil. I wanted to add sun-dried tomatoes but I didn't have any on hand- if you would like to add about 2tbsp of them minced to the quiche, I don't mind. Alternatively, diced fresh tomatoes might be nice sprinkled on top. I also thought of mixing the cooked sausage and onion into the quiche mix. There's just not enough time to try all of the variations but I don't mind if you do. :D.

I encountered a few problems with the recipe. The first issue was mashing the biscuits evenly in the muffin tin, but that was more than likely due to my manicure. I lightly rolled the biscuits out & then fitted them into the cups. The next was ingredient measurements. I had quite a bit of leftover filling so I spooned into three greased ramikins & baked. The recipe is nice, it's very creamy. Thank you for sharing your creation & good luck in the contest! :-)

I had so much fun making these and what a great idea. I made as directed including the sriracha and they went together fast and easy, and tasted great with a nice blend of flavors. These would be perfect for a grab and go breakfast on those hectic mornings when you just don't have time. I'm wondering if they would freeze well? Made for RSC 2011
