Some of you may have noticed that I’m a little obsessed with my mini-muffin pan. Everything just comes out looking so cute. So when Lon invited his friends, Shruti and Ekta, over for brunch, I wanted to experiment with miniature quiche. It was yummy so I’m sharing my recipe:

Mini Red Onion and Muenster Quiche

  • 1/2 cup butter, softened
  • 3 oz cream cheese, softened
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2/3 cup chopped red onion
  • 1 cup shredded muenster cheese
  • 3 eggs
  • 3/4 cup whipping cream
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt + dash
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper + dash

1. Cream the butter and cream cheese together. Add flour and mix until well blended.
2. Form 22-24 balls (about 1″) and refrigerate for 1 hour. Preheat oven to 350 degrees 20 minutes before dough is done chilling.
3. While the dough is chilling, saute onions with a dash of salt and pepper in a non-stick pan prepared with Pam. Remove when browned and softened. Set aside.
4. When dough is ready, press into the bottom and sides of the mini muffin pan (sprayed with non-stick).
5. Spoon a rounded teaspoon of cheese into each cup and top with 1/2 teaspoon of prepares onion.
6. Beat eggs, cream, and 1/2 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper. Spoon into each cup. Bake for 25 minutes, until golden brown. Let stand for 5 minutes before serving.

Enjoy a delicious treat!
