Caramelized Onion and Bacon Mini Quiche

Quiche. It's one of those foods that you can eat any time of the day and it tastes appropriately delicious. You can serve it for all occasions too. They're great for an ordinary day of the week, but seem special enough for a party. Did I mention that they taste like you spent a lot of time making them when you didn't? That's just a bonus. These particular mini quiches are a favorite around here. Make up a batch of these and freeze them to grab when you don't have time to cook. This batch I made when I was having a party to show of my grandson. Here's what you'll need: 

  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 4 oz bacon, finely chopped 
  • 3 TBL wholegrain mustard
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 C milk
  • pepper to taste
  • prepared pie crust

Start by preheating the oven to 350 degrees. 

Sauté the chopped onion in a couple of teaspoons of oil, cooking until golden brown. This will take about 20 minutes. In a separate pan, cook the bacon until crisp.

While the onion and bacon are cooking, unroll the pie crust. Using a 2" round cookie cutter, cut the dough into circles. Line the mini muffin tins with the discs. 

When the onions and bacon are done, combine them with the mustard and set aside. In a pourable measuring cup, mix the egg and milk and pepper. 

Add a small amount of the onion and bacon mixture to the bottom of each muffin cup. 

Pour the milk and egg mixture over the onion and bacon mixture filling to just below the top. 

Bake for 15-20 minutes until lightly golden and puffy. 

This recipe makes 4 dozen mini quiches. Try them. You won't be disappointed.
