Instructions Checklist

  • Cut each puff pastry sheet into 9 squares. Roll each square to fit individual 3-inch pie pans. Set puff pastry inside pie pans and place on a rimmed baking sheet. Pour a small amount of ceramic beads into each pie pan.

  • Bake in the preheated oven for 5 minutes.

  • Meanwhile, whip together eggs, spinach, milk, ricotta cheese, Parmesan cheese, mozzarella cheese, fontina cheese, salt, and pepper.

  • Remove pie pans from the oven and remove the ceramic beads. Ladle egg mixture into each pie tin. Bake until light golden brown, about 30 minutes.

Cook's Notes:

I use ceramic beads when parbaking pastry. Hard beans may be used but they often stick to the dough.

Feel free to bake1 quiche in a regular pie pan, if you wish.

I liked it. I only used 6 eggs, used a refrigerated, Italian pre-grated cheese blend and threw in some extra mozzarella instead of fontina. Then I put the whole puff pastry sheet in an 8x8 dish rather than separate pieces. Baked until knife came out clean. Was thick and fluffy. Read More

I made these last night and followed the recipe exactly, except that I didn't have any fontina cheese, so just added a little extra parmesan and mozzarella. They were really good! I was skeptical that there would be enough filling for all 18, but it worked out. If you like your quiches a little on the fuller side, you may want to make extra filling, because there's just enough to fill them a little bit. I realized that you need to roll out the dough to really hang over your dishes because it shrinks a little during the first 5 minute baking time. I used beans because I didn't have pie weights, and they did stick a little, but they came out with a little help. I reheated one for breakfast this morning, and it was still really good. We have a b&b, so will be adding these to the menu for sure. I think you could use whatever cheese and other filling ingredients you wanted, and it would work well. Read More
