Ham and Goat Cheese Mini ‘Quiches’

Ham and Goat Cheese Mini ‘Quiches’

 

I was assaulted by a tub of yogurt!

This really happens at our house.  The yogurt was shoved out of the fridge and onto my head by EGGS.  They’re malicious eggs, with the intent to do bodily harm.  They’re breeding and colonizing my fridge.  I’m sure they plan to take over the world and establish their own egg-topia!

Seriously, we have a ton of eggs.  We sell extra eggs.  We steam eggs for the pigs.  We send visitors home with cartons of eggs.  And…we eat a LOT of eggs!  At least one night a week, we have an egg-based dinner.

In order to avoid being ‘yolked’ to the same few dishes, I’m always on the lookout for new egg-cellent dinners.    Naturally, we eat a lot of quiches, but some days I don’t want to fool with pie crust.  It was one of those days that these little ‘quiches’ were born.

I have these muffin pans.  I love them!  Nothing sticks to them, and it’s super easy to unmold tender dishes.  I use them for individual meatloaves, Yorkshire puddings, curing soap, shaping lotion bars, and muffins!  One night, I had an epiphany!  I used the pans for mini ‘quiches’.  Since then, these ‘quiches’ have been on our meal plan regularly.  If you make these in metal muffin pans, be sure to grease them thoroughly.  Remember, eggs are egg-ceptionally prone to sticking!  (Okay,  I’ve hit my quota for bad egg puns)

Sometimes, I slice a potato into 1/4 inch slices and boil it for about 5 minutes.  I put slices into each muffin hole.  It makes a kind of faux crust, but most of the time I don’t bother.  We like them just as well without.  I make several varieties, mostly depending on what needs to be used up.  However, I’ve included a recipe for one of our favorite versions below.

This is a basic recipe, but the dish is incredibly flexible! It can be adapted to suit what's in the pantry or what's on your mind. Italian, Mexican, and cheeseburger versions are all hits at my house, but the goat cheese is my favorite!

Ingredients
Egg Mixture
Servings: quiches
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350` and spray silicon muffin pan. (Place muffin pans on a cookie sheet for stability.)
  2. Divide goodies evenly between muffin cups. (This makes it easy to accomodate personal preferences.)
  3. Thoroughly whisk together ingredients for egg mixture.
  4. Top the goodies in the silicone pan, with the egg mixture.
  5. Place silicon pans (with cookie sheet underneath) in oven for 40 minutes. When done, a knife inserted into the center will come out clean.
Recipe Notes

I make these in large "Texas-sized" muffin pans.  However, they can easily be adapted for smaller pans.  Simply adjust the cooking time to accommodate the pan change.
