Last night, my best friends and I got all dolled up for my sorority formal. After an arduous night of dancing and indulging in Prohibition era-like activities, my best friend Sara and I ditched our little black dresses for a couple of aprons the next morning.
Obviously, a quiche was in order. But when you wake up with your tummy rumbling, it’s best to opt for mini-quiches, a quick, easy, and still delicious alternative to your standard quiche.
First, preheat the oven at 350 degrees. Dice up ham and green onion. Second, mix six eggs, a cup of whole milk, and some salt and pepper.
Then, we used a wine glass to cut out perfect, miniature dough circles to place in a heavily Pammed mini muffin sheet.
Allot ham and green onions to each quiche.
Then we used a small ice cream scoop to dish out the egg mixture proportionately. Finally, top with grated cheese.
Less than twelve minutes later (just keep an eye on them), and voilà! you have a tasty French treat.
While the quiches were baking in the oven, we decided to dice up a few russet potatoes and lightly pan fry them with olive oil as a healthier hash brown alternative. Don’t forget to top them with salt and pepper!
With the leftover dough, we whipped up a free-form pastry. Roll out the dough and slather a heaping helping of butter, cinnamon-sugar, and then fold up the sides of the dough. Melt some butter (you just can’t go wrong with Paula Deen’s favorite) and drizzle it on top and sprinkle with more cinnamon-sugar. Bake on the second shelf of the oven while your quiches bake and keep it in until your finished eating.
Breakfast or brunch, bon appétit!
