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. —Stacy Atkinson, Rugby, North Dakota

  • 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 to 3 tablespoons boiling water
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/2 cup half-and-half cream
  • 1 tablespoon chopped green onion
  • 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. Preheat oven to 375°. In a large saucepan over medium heat, cook the beef, garlic powder and pepper until meat is no longer pink; crumble beef; drain and set aside.
  2. Meanwhile, in a small bowl, combine biscuit mix and cornmeal; cut in butter until crumbly. Add enough water to form a soft dough.
  3. Press onto the bottoms and up the sides of greased miniature muffin cups. Place a teaspoon of the beef mixture into each shell.
  4. In a small bowl, combine the egg, cream, onion, red pepper, salt and cayenne; pour over beef mixture. Sprinkle with cheese.
  5. Bake for 20 minutes or until a knife inserted in the center comes out clean.
