Mini Party Quiches
Ingredients
 
Nonstick cooking spray
2
tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese
1/2
teaspoon salt
1/3
cup olive oil or canola oil
5
tablespoons ice-cold water
1
egg
1/3
cup milk
 
Dash ground black pepper
1/3
cup finely shredded Monterey Jack cheese or Gruyere cheese
1
tablespoon chopped green onion
5
pear or cherry tomatoes, thinly sliced, and/or small herb leaves
 
Fresh thyme leaves (optional)
Directions
  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F. Coat twenty-four 1-3/4-inch muffin cups with cooking spray; set aside. For pastry, in a large bowl stir together flour, Parmesan cheese, and salt. Add oil all at once. Mix until crumbly. Add 2 tablespoons of the ice-cold water; stir to combine. Add enough remaining water, 1 tablespoon at a time, until flour is moistened. Gather into a ball, then knead gently just until pastry holds together.
  2. Divide pastry in 24 portions. Press each portion into a muffin cup. Do not prick pastry in cups. Bake for 8 to 10 minutes, just until pastry begins to brown. Remove from oven; set aside. Reduce oven to 350 degrees F.
  3. For quiche filling, in a small bowl whisk together egg, milk, and pepper. Stir in the cheese and onion. Fill each pastry cup with about 1 teaspoon filling. Top each quiche with a tomato slice or herb leaves.
  4. Bake quiches for 20 minutes or until filling is puffed and set. Cool in muffin cups on a wire rack for 5 minutes. Remove from cups; serve warm. If desired, sprinkle with fresh thyme.
