Mini Beef Quiches

Mini Quiches

  • 1/4 lb ground beef
  • 1/4 t garlic powder
  • 1/8 t pepper
  • 1 cup biscuit mix
  • 1/4 cup cornmeal
  • 1/4 cup cold butter
  • 2-3 T boiling water
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 cup half-and-half
  • 1 T chopped green onion
  • 1 T chopped red bell pepper
  • 1/4 t salt
  • 1/4 t cayenne pepper
  • 1/2 cup cheddar cheese, finely shredded

In a saucepan over medium heat, brown beef, garlic powder, and pepper. Drain and set aside. Combine biscuit mix and cornmeal in a bowl. Cut the butter into the cornmeal mixture. Add just enough water to mixture to form soft dough. Press into the bottom and sides of greased mini muffin cups. Add a teaspoonful of the beef mixture to each shell. In a separate bowl, mix egg, half-and-half, onion, red pepper, salt, and cayenne pepper. Pour over the beef. Sprinkle with cheese. Bake at 375° for 20 minutes or until a fork inserted at the center comes out clean.

Yield: 12 mini quiches

These turned out very nicely! I was so pleased that the crust was nice as well as the quiche being done! I substituted milk in place of half-and-half because we always have milk on hand and don’t have the other. It worked fine. I whisked to make the eggs light and fluffy and when they came out of the oven they were puffed up proudly. They did settle a bit when cooling off but still looked nice, I thought. They were very rich though, so you couldn’t eat very many of them at a time. I think I ate 3 or 4 of them and that was plenty.
