I made this for Christmas brunch and it was excellent. I forgot to add the hash browns and it still turned out great. The next day I popped one in the microwave for 30 seconds and it tasted like it was fresh out of the oven. You don't need the baking cups. Just grease your muffin tins and place mixture directly in the tin. The cooking time in my oven was exact. I will definitely make this again. Read More

Really good! I just made these and used half the sausage. They were perfect. Rather than mixing everything together, I sprayed my muffin tin with Pam, put the sausage/veg/cheese mixture in the tins evenly and then poured the egg mixture in, evenly. Popped right out of the pan, delish! Read More

Let me first say that these are DELICIOUS. I did make some changes, but I followed the recipe fairly closely. Instead of regular pork sausage, I used the pre-cooked crumbled turkey sausage. Not only does it save time, but it saves a lot of fat and calories too. I loaded the quiche with veggies: zuchinni, green onion, bell pepper and carrots. By adding so many veggies, I was able to get 24 mini quiches out of this recipe. By following a previous tip of putting the sausage mixture into the muffin tin and topping with egg, I had NO problem getting the quiches out of the pan. I did not use any paper liners. Once out of the oven, I flipped the quiches on to a baking sheet and put them in the freezer so I could then put them into a ziploc bag. Making a big batch of these and freezing them allows me to have quiche anytime! Just put two in the microwave for a minute and enjoy! Read More

I have taken these to several breakfast events, and they are always a hit! Recipe works great in a mini muffin tin, which makes bite-sized mini quiches. Makes 30-36, depending on how full you fill the cups. You may have to add 1 or 2 more eggs. I liked someone else's idea of putting sausage and veggies in cups first and then adding egg mixture. Reduced baking time to 16-18 minutes. Great recipe! Read More

Fantastic you can do a lot with this recipe! Had for guests and everyone chowed them! I followed the recipe but didn't have hash browns and just did red and yellow pepper not green. It set up perfectly I didn't use baking cups. Read More

Ok - I just tried this recipe for the first time and it was a hit at the brunch today. I followed the recipe fairly close but made a few minor changes after reading all the reviews. First, I used half or the recommended sausage. Second, I did not use baking cups but sprayed a non-stick olive oil spray and had no problems. They came right out of the pan. Third, the only vegetable that I added were the green onions as this was a family brunch with a lot of young children attending. I used both cheddar (1/2 cup) and mozzarella (1/4 cup) and I sprinkled a small amount of grated parmesan cheese on top of the un-baked mixture. Then I baked them. I also added the southern style hash brown potatoes and it made twelve regular size quiches. Very good - everyone loved them and this will now be a holiday regular for us. Read More
