Ham and Cheese Mini Quiches

Well, right now I’m relaxing on the beach. Mike and I are in the Bahamas and loving every second of it. Two of my goals while I’m here are:

  1. Feed the swimming pigs
  2. Swim with nurse sharks 

The swimming with sharks thing would be a huge step for me. When I was little, actually in the Bahamas, I stepped on a sea urchin and had 7 needles in my foot. Ever since then I’ve been afraid of anything in the water. Slowly, my husband has gotten me to snorkel. But fish still freak the crap out of me, especially when they start heading towards me. I feel like if I could swim with sharks, I could maybe conquer my fear! We’ll see. Wish me luck!

Even though I’m gone I still wanted to leave you some yummy recipes. You know. Cuz that’s what I do, and I’m kind like that! 🙂 

Today we are talking all about brunch with an emphasis on the savory side! Are you more savory or sweet when it comes to breakfast/brunch? 

Typically, I’m more savory although if it’s the right sweet (meaning it’s not crazy sugary) I can be suckered in.

Let’s dive right into these savory Ham & Cheese Mini Quiches, shall we?

Which Pastry is Best for Mini Quiches?

An easy way to make mini quiches is by using phyllo dough shells. It gives you the flaky crust but it’s already made so you don’t have to mess around with making or cutting pie crust. You can find the phyllo dough shells at most grocery stores. It will be in the freezer section.

How Do You Make Mini Quiches?

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Place phyllo dough shells on baking sheet.
  3. Fill with each shell with browned diced ham, scrambled eggs and top with shredded cheese.
  4. Bake for 25 minutes, until slightly browned and egg are puffed up.
  5. Remove from oven. Top with diced chives and serve!

Can Mini Quiche Be Frozen?

Yes. Once they are baked. Remove from oven and let cool. Place baking sheet with mini quiches in the freezer for 30 minutes. Remove and place mini quiches in a freezer safe storage bag. Store in freezer for up to 3 months.

How Do You Reheat Mini Quiche?

  1. In Oven: Place mini quiche on a wire rack lined baking sheet and bake for 10-15 minutes at 325 degrees F.
  2. In Microwave: place mini quiche on a plate and reheat for 1 minute. (note: you will lose the flaky crust when you reheat this way, but you will be able to eat it faster)

Everything about this Delicious Ham & Cheese Quiche Recipe is irresistible. Seriously. I couldn’t stop popping these in my mouth as I was taking photos. I added some garlic powder and thyme to the egg mixture which gives this dish an even more savory taste. You’ll absolutely love it!

I plan on making these for Easter Brunch and I’m hoping and praying my husband makes them for Mothers Day brunch! Along with those Lemon Poppy Seed Scones I posted last week! 🙂 

Bon Appetit friends!

    I am planning to make these for Easter brunch however the phyllo my husband got was sheets he couldn’t find the baking cups. do you recommend thawing the sheet and cutting to fit into individual cupcake pan and then re-freeze before baking.

    1. Krista @ Joyful Healthy Eats

      Yes, you could definitely try that. Might be more work but it could be done. Otherwise you could just make a big quiche and put the phyllo sheets in a pie baking dish.

    I wanted to love these, but my egg mixture immediate soaked through the pastry shells and left egg puddles on the baking sheet. I tried to salvage them, but when baked, the shells turned into little flat discs instead of nice little phyllo cups. Any idea how to prevent the wet egg mixture from ruining the delicate frozen phyllo dough shells? I feel like I must be doing something wrong here!

    1. Krista @ Joyful Healthy Eats

      Hm… were the phyllo shells completely frozen or did they sit on the counter at all? If they sat for a little bit on the counter they would thaw out fast and could cause the shells to fold under the weight of the eggs.

      1. Sarah

        Thanks for posting! Do you bake with the phyllo dough still frozen or do you let it thaw? And are the eggs scrambled when you put them in the cups or are they just the liquid mixture?

        1. Krista @ Joyful Healthy Eats

          I bake it with the phyllo dough still frozen and the eggs are a liquid mixture so they bake in the oven along with the phyllo dough.

    Hi Krista! I love this recipe for mini quiche…do you think you could do with any type of filling…like replace the ham for bacon or veggies (for the vegetarians? Love your website!
