Recipe: The Perfect Recipe for the Perfect Mini Quiche Appetizer

Mini Quiche is the perfect appetizer for your next family gathering or party! 
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 mini quiche which is the perfect 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.  You can use homemade pie dough or even store purchased pie dough works great too with this recipe.

notes

Freezing Tips: 
Place the mini quiche evenly on a baking sheet that's been lined with parchment paper.  Place the tray in the freezer to "flash freeze" the quiche...about 30 to 45 minutes.  Once they are frozen place them in a freezer safe container or plastic bag for up to 3 months. 

Reheating Tips:
Place the frozen mini quiche on a baking tray that's been lined with parchment paper and allow them to come to room temperature.  Once they are defrosted, place the tray in a preheated 350 degree oven for up to 10 minutes or until they are heated through.  

This recipe will make 48 mini quiche or one regular sized quiche baked in a pie plate.  If you choose to bake only ONE quiche, you will need only ONE pie crust dough.
