Mini Onion Quiche
- 3/4 cup crushed ritz crackers
- 4 Tbsp(1/2 stick) butter, melted
- Nonstick cooking spray
- 1 cup chopped sweet onion(or a combo of sweet and green)
- 2 Tbsp butter
- 2 eggs
- 1 cup milk
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1/4 tsp pepper
- 1 cup grated swiss cheese(or asiago)
Preheat oven to 300. Combine cracker crumbs and melted butter. Divide crumbs among 24 mini muffin tins (or ramekins, as shown) that have been sprayed with nonstick cooking spray. Saute onion in 2 Tbsp of butter, for about 10 minutes. Cool, then divide equally among muffin tins over cracker crumbs. Beat eggs; add milk, salt, pepper, and cheese. Pour by spoonfulls over onions. Do not fill to the top as they will spill over. Bake until set; about 15-20 minutes. Do not over bake.
Note: If you are baking in ramekins as shown in the picture, increase baking time by about 5-7 minutes.
Tip: Mixture may be stored in refrigerator over night before baking.
This delicious recipe is from one of my very first clients, who asked me to style a ladies brunch. In terms of my design style, a lot has changed since then (for the better, thank goodness), but this mini quiche recipe is still just as good. Hope you’ll try it and enjoy it as much as we do!
