Mock Baby Quiche


So cute and full of delicious flavors, these Mock Baby Quiche are as fun to make as they are to pop into your mouth! I love these for brunch, an easy appetizer or make a batch ahead of time to warm up for a quick healthy breakfast on the run! The kids ask for these and are a perfect healthy snack after school too! The ingredients are as versitle as your imagination. A wonderful way to use up leftovers and the last of your veggies. This recipe fits in wonderfully with a low-carb diet too!

This recipe makes 12, double and make an extra batch, as these babies don’t last long!

Ingredients

3/4 cup Sharp Cheddar Cheese (or cheese of choice) shredded
1/2 cup ham diced (deli ham works great too)
1 large scallion white and green parts, thinly sliced
1/4 cup green sweet pepper (or colored works well too) diced
4 eggs
splash milk
salt and pepper to taste

Spray mini muffin tin with cooking spray. Pre-heat oven to 375 degrees. In each hole, place ham, scallions, green pepper and cheese. In another bowl, mix 4 eggs and milk with wire whisk. Salt and pepper to taste. Pour egg mixture over ham/cheese/vegetables in each tin just to the top. Cook 10-12 minutes until middle is set.

Other Variations:
Bacon
Sausage
Turkey
Pepper-jack cheese, swiss cheese or any favorite shredded cheese
Green peppers (or any colored pepper)
Jalapenos
Broccoli
Mushrooms
Tomatoes, seeded and drained diced
Fresh Herbs such as basil, thyme, sage, chives

For a Thanksgiving brunch try: Sage sausage, sweetened dried cranberries chopped and chives with swiss.

Our family favorite: Pepper-jack cheese, ham, scallions and green pepper!

  1. Sheri! Love the mock baby quiche. What a fabulous idea and so great for starters, picnics, and Teacher luncheons, which I’m in charge of this year!

  2. What a great idea for the Teacher luncheons! You can make them more grown up with prosciutto, or fetta cheese! I’m sure you’ll have great ideas! This was a fun one to do with the boys, they both helped!

  3. I love this! I must try this! Thank you for sharing!

    I might try substituting the ham with boiled potato, as I don’t eat ham. These look like a great idea!

  4. Thesaltedtomato, I was thinking about making these for Christmas brunch….sundried tomatoes (in oil) chopped, with cappers and feta cheese! Defrosted shredded hashbrowns would be easy and yummy too! The possiblities are simply endless! Thanks for your comment!
