Ground Beef Snack Quiches Recipe

Publisher Photo
My husband, Cory, farms, so supper can sometimes be quite late. A hearty appetizer like these meaty mini quiches is a perfect way to start the meal. They taste super made with ground beef, but I sometimes substitute bacon, ham, ground pork or sausage.

P.S. I sometimes use ham or pork sausage instead of hamburger. All are tasty.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Dec. 30, 2010

I've made these mini quiche for many years; getting the recipe from a TOH magazine years ago. My family really likes them. I make them in advance and then freeze them. It takes just a few minutes to reheat them. I also made them as one of my New Year Eve's snacks. I especially like the cornmeal crust. It give a crunchy nutty texture. I misplaced the TOH magazine, so I'm thrilled to find the recipe online.
