Mini Quiche

Mini Quiche

We love mini quiche in the morning. Not only are they a great handheld grab and go item. These little lovelies can be frozen and defrosted for later. We make ours with onions, peppers, cheese, and sometimes ham. But the sky is the limit to what flavors you can create. If you love mushrooms, spinach and or cheese... go for it. This is a great clean up the fridge item to make.
