These are fabulous! Mixes up very easily and looks and tastes great - I wanted to make them again right away so I could keep eating them. Thanks for posting!
Great - so flavorful and the ingredients blend wonderfully. I made my own crust from Recipe #297274. These were a big hit! Thanks for sharing!
Oh, these were fantastic!!! I made them for PAC Fall 2007, so I had no special occasion in mind, thought they would be nice for lunchboxes....however, they didn't make it that far!! The family finished them off in short order! I was preparing and freezing a box of fresh vegetables, so I just took a few of the pumpkin chunks out and froze the rest, everything else came out of fridge and freezer, they were quickly put together and baked whilst I was busy with other kitchen stuff. The pumpkin is not overpowering, it just adds a nice moistness to the baby quiches. The overall flavour is wonderfully savoury...you will note that there is no salt & pepper or other seasonings apart from the nutmeg, all the flavour comes from the ingredients, and they taste so good! Thank you for a great recipe, Jewelies!
