Sausage and Swiss Mini Quiches Recipe
I created my little heavenly morsels for a holiday party. They were so tasty, adorable that my family and friends ask for them by name. I find the mascarpone makes the quiches extra rich, but you can substitute cream cheese if you like.—Lisa Renshaw, Kansas City, Missouri
- 1 package (17.3 ounces) frozen puff pastry, thawed
- 1 package (16 ounces) bulk pork sausage
- 4 green onions, finely chopped
