Tempt My Tummy Tuesday…. Mini Quiches

by Lisa on August 15, 2011

Thank you for joining us for Tempt My Tummy Tuesday.  I hope you enjoy visiting all these wonderful sites and trying new tempting recipes.


This past week was the last meeting for our summer bible study at church.  To celebrate the end all the ladies contributed a breakfast food item and we had a fabulous brunch.  I shared a new recipe for mini quiches.  This recipe was SUPER EASY and will now become part of my rotating recipes for brunches, bible studies, and MOPS morning snacks.  It is always fun when you discover a recipe you know will be a frequent “guest” at your table.


Mini Quiches

  • 1 1/4 cups Bisquick mix
  • 1/4 cup butter, softened
  • 2 tbsp boiling water
  • 6 slices bacon, crisply cooked and crumbled
  • 1/2 cup half and half
  • 1 egg
  • 2 medium green onions, thinly sliced (2 tbsp)
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp pepper
  • 1/2  – 1 cup shredded Swiss cheese

Finely slice green onion.

Press teaspoonful of dough on bottom and up side of muffin cups.

Divide bacon evenly among the muffin cups.

Spoon 1 1/2 tsp egg mixture into each muffin cup.

Sprinkle Swiss cheese over tops.

Yummy Mini Quiches!


  1. Heat oven to 374.  Generously grease 24 mini muffin cups with cooking spray.
  2. In small bowl, stir Bisquick mix and butter until blended.  Add boiling water; stir vigorously until soft dough forms.  Press rounded teaspoonful of dough on bottom and up side of each muffin cup.  Divide bacon evenly among muffin cups.
  3. In small bowl, beat half-and-half and egg until well blended.  Stir in onions, salt and pepper.  Spoon 1 1 /2 tsp egg mixture into each muffin cup.  Sprinkle cheese over top.
  4. Bake 20 minutes or until edges are golden brown and centers are set.  Cover; refrigerate any remaining appetizers.

Makes 24 appetizers.

The ONLY thing I will do different next time is to DOUBLE the recipe.  Because they are so tasty and small, people eat them up very quickly.  And, I always prefer having too much instead of not enough.  🙂

Lisa, These little quiches are a brilliant idea! I’m going to make these and freeze them and have a couple for breakfast! I need a little protein in the morning and these would be just fabulous! How delicious. Thanks for hosting Temp My Tummy. I would love for you to stop by and participate in ON THE MENU MONDAY ~ your little quiches will be so popular!

Lisa, I think we were hungry for something similar. 😉 I love your recipe and think I’ll give it a try. It reminds me of the tiny quiches I have gotten from Sam’s Club, but less expensive and even better tasting! No wonder you need to double it. 🙂 My recipe today is similar, but it starts by tossing a Ritz cracker in each cup, instead of the dough. Fun!

Oh yum! I love mini-quiches. I think I may make this part of my next entertaining gig since neither of the wee ones can/will eat them. Thanks for sharing! 🙂

Your quiches look delicious!! I posted my Very berry Parfait today. Thanks for hosting!!


Gaby @ Tmuffin August 19, 2011 at 7:36 am

These look delicious and easy! I am going to try to play with the mix and use whole wheat or oat flour instead of bisquick (I’m on the South Beach Diet and need some great recipe ideas).

These look so delicious! : )
