I can make a meal of these tasty little appetizers inspired by The Incredible Egg.
These mini quiche are simple to prepare, inexpensive, and amazingly versatile. Add whatever meat and vegetables you have on hand to whipped eggs, then pop them in the oven. It doesn’t get any easier than that!
I find that quiche is a popular appetizer at any gathering, and usually gone in a flash.
My problem with the typical quiche recipe is the pie crust. I have no desire to make it, and buying it at the grocery store doesn’t appeal to me either. Besides, as far as I’m concerned, pie crust isn’t worth the extra calories.
Still, I needed a container, and wonton wrappers were the perfect size to pop in a muffin tin and fill with my egg mixture.
When they were removed from the oven, the wontons had crispy browned edges, and a creamy, savory center. Between Mike and I, we finished the entire plate!
As I said, I could turn these mini delights into a meal – all I need is a salad on the side. Happy cooking!
