Mini Double Cheese Quiches
I like single serve dishes. For me, for some reason, it makes it easier to eat only what I am supposed to and not keep eating and eating. When I am faced with a big something I tend to eat more of it than I should...Why is that? What better way to control portion size than to make single servings! This is perfect for breakfast, brunch, lunch or even dinner. By making the quiches in small single serve pans it's easy to know where to begin and where to end. Pair the quiche with a salad and you've got the perfect meal!
What You'll Need per Mini Pan:
1/4 of a prepared pie crust (Note: I used a store bought crust for this, but any type of crust will work. You just want enough to fill the bottom of your mini tart pan.)
1 egg, beaten
1 tablespoon of dried dill
A pinch of sea salt
Freshly ground black pepper
2 tablespoons of swiss, shredded
2 tablespoons of fontina, shredded
Preheat oven to 400 F.
Fill mini-tart pans with pie crust. Set aside.
In a glass bowl beat eggs. Add dill, sea salt and freshly ground pepper and stir to incorporate. Stir in cheeses and fill each pan with egg mixture until full. Bake for 20-30 minutes until golden brown.
You can make as many, or as few of these as you like. I ended up making two mini quiches...One for then and one for later.
Note: Quiche is the ultimate play around with food. Add in more cheese, or different cheeses. Play around with herbs that you like. You could even throw in some mushrooms and onions. Or how about some spinach and leeks? The possibilities are endless!
