Crisp Cheese Bacon Quiches

img_9078Yes…the mini quiche appetizer, a regular on the Washington cocktail party circuit and they are usually luke warm, a mushy pie crust shell and flavorless ingredients mixed in.  We like to supercharge ours with a spicy kick, freshly grated cheeses and a crispy fillo shell which combines, makes the world of difference.

Ingredients

  • 2 packages of mini fillo shells (15 in each)
  • 1 cup half and half
  • 2-3 big dashes of Sriracha
  • 3 extra large eggs
  • 1/2 cup gruyere cheese, shredded
  • 1/3 cup parmesan cheese, finely grated
  • 4 strips if bacon prepared:  Roasted Bacon 🥓, then finely chopped or if you really want to turn up the flavor use crumbled Crispy Prosciutto
  • 1 tablespoon of fresh chives, finely chopped
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper to taste

Making It

  • Turn the oven to 350 degrees
  • Whisk the half and half, eggs, Sriracha, parmesan cheese, salt and pepper and put in a liquid measuring cup
  • Put chives, gruyere cheese and bacon in all of the fillo cups that have been placed in a mini muffin tin
  • Fill each cup with the egg mixture, but leave a little room at the top
  • Sprinkle with parmesan cheese and bake for 15-17 minutes, let rest for 5 minutes and serve
