Mini Sausage Quiche
These are great for an eat-on-the-go breakfast underway as they're easy to hold in just one hand. Add a tossed salad and a glass of white wine, and they make a special brunch for guests. Cut them in quarters and they're the perfect appetizer on a chilly day!
Carbs (g): 18
- 1 Roll of 5 refrigerated biscuits
- 9- ounce package precooked sausage crumbles (or ½ pound bulk sausage crumbled and cooked)
- ½ cup shredded Four Cheese blend
- 3 eggs
- ½ cup milk
- 2 tablespoons sliced green onion tops, for garnish
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Grease 10 muffin cups and fill any remaining cups in the pan half full of water so they don't warp.
Cut the 5 biscuits (see notes) crosswise to make 10 rounds. Use your fingers or a rolling pin to flatten each one into a circle about 4” in diameter. Place each one in a greased muffin cup so that it comes most of the way up the sides and lightly press it into the pan.
Place roughly even portions of the sausage on each piece of dough, then do the same with the cheese.
Mix the eggs and milk together until well blended. Pour the egg mixture over the roll/sausage/cheese in the muffin cups, filling each about ¾ full. Garnish each cup with a few slices of green onion.
Bake for 20 to 22 minutes, until tops are dark golden. Take a fork and slide one of quiches up a bit in the pan – the roll should be golden on the sides, too. Bake a few minutes longer if the roll is not quite done.
Let sit for 2-3 minutes to allow quiches to firm up a bit, then use a fork or spoon to slide each one out of the pan and set it on a plate. Wait another 3 – 4 minutes until cool enough to hold and eat.
*Don't buy a roll of biscuits and use them full thickness – there won't be room for anything else in the muffin cups!
Variations: Instead of the sausage and Four Cheese blend, try other precooked meat and cheese combos – or vegetarian combos – such as:
Diced ham and shredded Swiss cheese
Crumbled bacon and shredded Swiss, Parmesan or Gruyere cheese
Crumbled ground beef with taco seasoning and shredded cheddar – garnish with chopped tomato (great as an appetizer)
Diced artichokes with shredded Parmesan
. . . or your own favorite quiche combination! You can also make them without cheese for anyone with an intolerance.
