Mini Onion Quiche Recipe

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!

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.

    Am I missing something? The photo shows the "onion quiche" in little ramekins, but the recipe says mini-muffin tins. ??

    Hi there! Love your site, recently discovered you via Tomkat Studio. Wondering what type of muffin cups/tins you’d suggest if I’m not using ramekins. Thanks a bunch and have a great day!

      Hi Debbie, thank you! I haven’t tried making these in muffin cups but you should be able to if you spray it well will non-stick spray. Alternatively, you could line them with cupcake liners for easy release AND a cute individual presentation.
