Ground Beef Snack Quiches Recipe

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.
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 15 min. Bake: 20 min. YIELD:6 servings


  • 1/4 pound ground beef
  • 1/8 to 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 cup biscuit/baking mix
  • 1/4 cup cornmeal
  • 1/4 cup cold butter, cubed
  • 2 o 3 tablespoons boiling water
  • 1 large egg

  • 1 tablespoon chopped sweet red pepper
  • 1/8 to 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 to 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1/2 cup finely shredded cheddar cheese


  • 1. In a large saucepan over medium heat, cook the beef, garlic powder and pepper until meat is no longer pink; drain and set aside.
  • 2. Meanwhile, in a small bowl, combine biscuit mix and cornmeal; cut in butter. Add enough water to form a soft dough.
