Mini Quiche

Mini Quiche make the perfect appetizer for any family celebration from Walking on Sunshine.

Today I'm sharing with you a favorite recipe that I've been making for years!
Quiche.  And not just any quiche, this really is one of the best recipes I have been making for years.  I started making it as a full size quiche and then adapted the original recipe to make them mini size for parties.  It's an easy recipe to follow and the quiche freeze really well which means you can make them ahead if you're planning a pretty large celebration.  They're perfect for a party, a brunch or just a fun time with friends.

This is the set of biscuit cutters I own.  I love them because they're stainless steel and make clean up really easy.  They all fit together nicely stacked inside each other.

I love this tool from Pampered Chef.  It helps push dough into the muffin tin without tearing the dough.  You can purchase one from my Pampered Chef online store.
