  1. These are completely delicious little morsels! Great for OAMC too! I used Recipe #188419 for the pastry and did not prebake because I find that tends to make the pastry too hard. I think my oven must run hot at the higher temperatures because these were starting to burn after 10 minutes so I dropped the temperature to 350F at that point. Since I was baking these for OAMC, I baked them at 350F for another 5 minutes. They were very puffed up at this point, but dropped to normal as they cooled. When they were cool, I wrapped them in saran wrap and froze. Reheating Instructions: Place frozen mini quiches on a cookie sheet and bake in a preheated oven at 350F for 12-13 minutes (I used the top shelf of the oven if it makes any different). These reheated extremely well, I would definitely make these in bulk to have as a quick appetizer!


I am an avid cook and recipe collector. I've been cooking since I was 9 yrs. old. I am the first American from my family so I cook many different European dishes, everything from west to east. If I had a month just to do what I would like to do...I would like to cook that month with a famous chef. I also write a bulletin for a Service to Mankind organization. Since I collect recipes anywhere I can see them, I've been asked to share them with my readers. So this site is wonderful not just for me!
