Review This Recipe
YOU CAN ADD SO MANY DIFFERENT ITEMS TO THIS RECIPE, SUCH AS BACON, HAM OR CHORIZO. I HAVE SHARED THIS RECIPE SO MANY TIMES. BEST PART THEY CAN BE MADE AHEAD
great make-ahead snack or appetizer
Made these with some variations. Everyone loved them. I gave them an Italian twist by adding Italian seasoning, substituting mozzarella cheese and also used fresh broccoli instead of frozen.They are great as a snack or appetizer. I also like that they can be made ahead.
good easy recipe
I really liked this recipe but I had to substitute red pepper for green because I have intolerance to them. I also chopped up some crisp bacon to add. The best part of this recipe is that if everyone cannot sit down to breakfast at the same time the individual quiches make it easy for people to reheat and eat theirs when convenient.
It was a fast & easy recipe to prepare. However, I think it needed more flavor. So, to add some more flavor and spice to it I added more salt, cheese & pepper to it.
I have made a big quiche with this recipe, replacing vegetables with ham, and it turned out great!
I am from France where crutless quiches are very common. I am glad american people like them too!
Party-Perfect Mini Quiches
I made these for Christmas Morning and they were a big hit. Like the idea that i could make them ahead of time and than just heat them up they also are very easy to make and will make again.
Loved by all
I usually make regular size quiche or a big pan of breakfast casserole. These were delicious and easy. I have already been asked to share the recipe with three friends. I made an extra batch, froze them. Often I pull out a few to microwave for quick breakfasts.
Healthy and Good
These are great! I used the fat free Carnation, frozen broccoli and red pepper from our garden. On a whim I added a dash of cayenne/black pepper blend. I made a batch for breakfast and a batch of smaller ones for Christmas Eve appetizers. Highly recommended.
I made a double batch of this recipe. Kept the leftovers in the fridge. They were great for a quick breakfast during the week when everyone's in such a hurry to get out the door in the morning. Just pop in the microwave and out the door we go. We love them!
Delicious and Easy
I made this when my 8 year old granddaughter was visiting and substituted diced pepperoni for the peppers and and she loved it. It is so easy to make and so many substitutions you can use to suit your own taste.
Substitution for gluten intolerance...
Just substitute some corn starch in for the flour and this recipe is gluten intolerance friendly. Tasty, too!
Loved mini quich
I am a big quiche fan, but my husband is not. I made this quiche recipe and loved it because it was crustless. Bonus, my husband liked it too!
Great for WLS Patients
I had weight loss surgery 2 years ago and am always looking for recipes I can use. This is perfect because it is crustless, a good source of protein and I can make it to the ounce size I am able to consume. I will pass this on to my WLS group.
i always go and buy quiches already made and you only get like 6 - 12 in a box. They are very expensive so I was pleased to find this recipe because it doesn't take long and it's cheaper to make than buying some.
