Appetizer Mini Quiches

These are a staple in my Appetizer repetoire. I like that you can partially bake them and then freeze ahead. They are so much tastier then the purchased quiches and quick as you can use ready made tart shells.

Sometimes I use Swiss cheese and sometimes cheddar but the filling is mostly the same.

Mini Quiche Lorraines
4 eggs
1 1/2 cups of half and half
pinch of salt, pepper, nutmeg

Fry bacon until crispy, drain on paper towels. I used about 6 slices.
Grate approximately one cup of cheese (cheddar or Swiss)
I bunch of green onions chopped finely
Frozen pre-made tart shells (maybe about 20)

Put your bacon, onions and cheese in tart shells. Pour filling on top. Do not overfill.
Bake at 375F for about 20 minutes or continue baking until browned if you are going to serve right away, otherwise cool and freezer for your next hostessing event.
