Little Quiche

READY IN: 50mins
Recipe by Jellyqueen

This is my adopted recipe and I haven't made it yet. Kids will love these tiny quiches. It's just the right size, but will also make a great hors' d'oeuvers for adults.

DGS #2 was wanting to make breakfast and decided this would be just right as they don't like to much in the way of add-ins. He was really nervous about the nutmeg but it turned out just right and him and his very picky brother loved it. When I went to make it, couldn't find my muffin pan (got to clean out those cabinets) so rather than dealing with that issue with all the kids here decided to use an 8" round cake pan, I added one extra egg to make it fit and and then baked on 350 for 35 minutes and it was great, firm and easy to cut and serve.
