This week for February’s Hot Breakfast Month we are focusing on breakfasts that take a bit more time. These recipes are perfect for weekend brunches or family get-togethers. Every year for Christmas, I host a big family brunch. These mini quiches are always a huge hit. I will often prepare them on weekends as well, since I can customize each quiche for every member of the household.

I’m going to share with you several of my go-to mix-in ideas, but feel free to experiment. You can even play around with spices and seasonings. You really can’t go wrong. You can even go mix-in-free and have just plain quiches. That doesn’t really wow me, but my toddler certainly approves.

Instructions

Preheat the oven to 375°F. Lightly spray a 12-cup mini muffin pans with homemade cooking spray. Chop mix-ins coarsely and set aside.

In a medium bowl, whisk together eggs, milk, half & half, salt, and pepper. Add a small amount of mix-ins and a bit of cheese to each of the cups. Pour the egg mixture over the cheese and mix-ins until the cups are about 2/3 full. Sprinkle a bit more mix-ins and cheese to the top of each quiche.

Bake until the tops are puffed and just beginning to brown (about 15 minutes). Enjoy while still hot.
