Gather the ingredients for your mini quiches

Once you commit to making this recipe, you will need to gather 6 eggs, cream, milk, and grated cheddar cheese. You'll also need diced ham, quartered cherry tomatoes, and salt and pepper, to taste. That's it! When everything's in front of you, you can start making your mini quiches. 

Prep your pan and whisk your eggs

From start to finish, the prep work for your mini quiches takes just 10 minutes. You'll need to grease a 12-hole muffin pan to prevent the eggs from sticking to the bottom. Brookes notes that you can use butter, spread, or vegetable oil to grease the pain. 

Preheat your oven to 375 F. Grab a medium-sized bowl, and toss in the eggs and cream, sprinkling them with salt and pepper, to taste. Whisk until everything is well-combined.

Pour the egg mixture and bake

With the eggs whisked, move to your muffin pan and distribute the cheese, ham, and tomatoes evenly across the 12 muffin wells.  

Pour the egg mixture evenly over the top of the fillings. Pop the mini quiches into the oven and bake for about 15-20 minutes. You'll want to make sure the tops get nice and golden brown, and the eggs set in the middle.

When ready, take the muffin pan out of the oven and leave the quiches to cool for about 10 minutes. 

When asked if you can sub out ham and tomatoes for other ingredients, Brookes gives the thumbs up. "Yes definitely! These are super versatile so you can use your favorite add-ins," she shares. 

Remove and serve

After allowing the quiche to cool, run a sharp knife around the edges of the mini quiches to loosen them from the pan. Then, tip them from the pan to a plate and serve as you wish! Brookes likes enjoying them with salad, fries, rice, or roasted vegetable.

And if you can't eat all 12 mini quiches in a single morning, you can keep them for a day or two. "They should keep for 2 days in the fridge. You can also reheat them in the oven," she says. "I wouldn't recommend freezing [them] as the texture would be quite off on defrosting." 

Cheers to another great breakfast dish!
