Crustless Broccoli & Cheese Quiches Makes at least 4 dozen
A broccoli and cheese quiche in its full size is good, but in these tiny little bites, the flavor seems to intensify. This recipe will make 4 dozen of these tasty tidbits; see tips and info below. Most ovens can easily hold 4 pans; five if needed. These can be served cold or at room temperature.
• 1 medium crown fresh broccoli; washed; dried and chopped into a ½ inch dice*
• 2 cups (12 ounces) shredded, chopped cheddar cheese
• 2/3 cup minced onion or scallions
• 1-1/3 cups whole milk
• 3 eggs
• ¾ cup baking mix
• ¼ tsp salt
• ¼ tspblack pepper
Preheat oven to 375°F. Prepare 4** mini muffin pans by spraying
with a nonstick cooking spray or use our pan release.
1. Lay out the pans; take a large pinch of the broccoli and place it in the bottom of each cup. You may need to adjust the amount to make sure they are all equal. Do the same with the cheese and onion
2. In a blender, add the rest of the ingredients and blend on high for 20 seconds, scraping sides. Do not overbeat, as you will be adding excess air. Pour mixture into each cup until it's a scant ¼-inch from the top. You may have to adjust the amount in each cup as before; Bake at 375°F for 12 minutes or until golden brown on top. Start checking after 10 minutes.
3. Remove; cool in pans for 5 minutes; then GENTLY turn out onto cooling rack. If any don't come out easily, use a table knife at the stuck places to help ease it out of the pan. If not using right away, store in airtight container in refrigerator with parchment paper between layers.
*For frozen broccoli use 2 pkg (10 oz), rinse with coolwater; drain and pat dry, then chop as above, eliminating stems.
**If you don't have 4 pans, go ahead and bake what you have, but stir the batter again before using.
Tips & Info
• You can use paper liners but they must be sprayed with a non-
stick cooking spray.
• FYI, it is rare that the amount comes out exactly every time.
• This recipe will also make a 9-inch quiche. The broccoli should be cut into larger pieces.
