Mini Quiche Lorraine

By Denise Jones, member

March 19th, 2009

I've made these mini quiches a few times now, for a Coronado 4th of July Pre-Parade breakfast and when we catered an Open House (I like to think our food helped sell that beautiful 5 million dollar house across the street from the Hotel Del Coronado).  They are almost "crustless" but I use a little sprinkling of seasoned bread crumbs on the bottom of the mini muffin tins.  This past weekend, I made them again and used gruyPre and crispy pancetta. The trick is only eating only one or two...or maybe three, tops!

Thank you for clarifying this. I wasn't sure if we were supposed to post the actual recipe if requested.

You can use any quiche recipe, or variation. I used Madame Quiche's Quiche au Fromage from and followed the bacon and cheese version, using crispy pancetta and gruyere. Instead of a crust, I used sprinkled a very light layer of seasoned bread crumbs on the bottom of slightly buttered muffin tins.
