12, 2 1/2 inch quiches


  • Nonstick cooking spray

  • ½ 17.3 ounce pkg. frozen puff pastry sheets (1 sheet), thawed

  • 4 slices bacon

  • 1 ½ cup sliced fresh stemmed shiitake, cremini, and/or button mushrooms

  • ¾ cup shredded Swiss cheese (3 ounces)

  • ¼ cup sliced green onions

  • 2 eggs, lightly beaten

  • 1 8 ounce carton sour cream


  1. Preheat oven to 400°F. Coat twelve 2 1/2-inch muffin cups with cooking spray. On a lightly floured surface roll out pastry to a 12-inch square. Cut into twelve 4x3-inch rectangles. Press pastry rectangles onto bottoms and up sides of muffin cups. Prick bottoms with a fork. Bake 8 minutes. Remove from oven. Press centers down with the back of a teaspoon.

  2. In a large skillet cook bacon until crisp. Drain bacon on paper towels; crumble. Reserve 1 Tbsp. of drippings in skillet; discard any remaining drippings.

  3. For filling, cook mushrooms in reserved drippings until tender and liquid evaporates. In a medium bowl combine mushrooms, crumbled bacon, cheese, and green onions. Spoon filling into each pastry shell. In the same bowl whisk together eggs and sour cream; slowly spoon the egg mixture over filling in shells to allow the egg mixture to flow into cups around the filling.

  4. Bake 12 to 15 minutes or until set (160°F). Let stand 5 minutes in the pan. Carefully remove from muffin cups. Serve warm.
