Do you quiche?

K's Quick Quiche Mini's

This morning for breakfast my wife decided to make scrambled eggs and sausage but while getting the sausage links out of the freezer she came upon a box of filo dough she'd forgotten was in there and was struck with inspiration. Mixing up the eggs with a little milk, shredded cheddar cheese, diced green pepper, minced onion, and some seasonings, she produced a quick quiche mix. Then she used her mini-muffin pan, stuffed a bit of filo dough in each pocket, dropped in a couple small pieces of cooked sausage, and filled it with the egg mix. The mini-quiche were then topped with a bit more shredded cheese and popped into a 350(F) oven for 20 minutes. They were delicious. We had enough left over to have more for breakfast tomorrow. My question is, do you like quiche? If you do, what is your favorite kind? If you don't, why not?

Some quiche has too much pastry for my taste, so using filo sounds like a great option. Kudos to your wife, I never cook in the morning!

The filo dough was light and flaky, and, best of all, it didn't fill you up at all.

@Hatley I'm not sure, but I would think so. K doesn't add any sugar and I don't think there's much in the dough.

I like quiche, with or without crust. I like swiss cheese, spinach and bacon.

No, since I can't eat eggs that is out of the question.

I can certainly understand why you would avoid quiche.

We've been together 27 years, so I'd say we've decided to keep each other, LOL.

I love quiche but have never used filo pastry before. I tend to use what we call short crust ( probably something different in America). I also now do quiche without any pastry ( trying to lose weight !). Cheese and onion or tuna are favourites of mine.

When K makes a full sized quiche she uses pie crust. Using the filo dough for these was an inspired choice because it was handy.

It looks very tasty but I don't know what filo dough is. Never had quiche before.

Filo dough is a very light and flaky dough, and a quiche is sort of like an omelet in a pie crust.

@Susan2015 Filo dough or Phyllo dough is a prepared dough you can purchase at the store. It is characterized by very thin layers of dough with butter in between. You can make it at home but it is so challenging most people just buy some.

@DWDavis My daughter has begun to cook and bake, I like eating what she makes.. but she's got to be in the right mood. Lately she hasn't had the time.

They were quite delicious and the leftovers were even better warmed up the next day when they'd seasoned through a bit.

I'm not terribly fond of eggs but that sounds like a great idea putting them in the muffin cups

Each was about two bites, and tasted even better warmed up the next morning for breakfast.

I really like quiche. I make a crustless one but it is pretty basic with egg, swish or gruyere cheese, bacon and spinach. It is good with a crust but - saving calories!

I enjoy quiche, although I've not made it in several years. I usually make them for supper. I've not made them in a while because I work two jobs currently and will be for maybe seven more years. Because of that I'm usually working during supper meals. If I had more time I'd make seven layer casserole more often. We all like that a lot too. Is filo dough like the preformed pie crusts you can buy in stores?
