Mini Appetizer Quiches

Ready in 45 minutes

Here’s the quiche recipes… you can either make one large quiche (for a light lunch or dinner) or the mini quiches for an appetizer.  If you make the large quiche, you can just buy a frozen pie shell (a deep one) and use it to hold the filling. 

Fill them with anything you like.  Cheeses, veggies, meats, etc.  When we experimented, we found that we liked Swiss cheese the best and that a little bit of green onion added to each one really made the quiches taste the best.
