Ham & Gruyere Mini Quiches Recipe

Ham & Gruyere Mini Quiches Recipe

By making this in muffin cups, each person gets a quiche. I have also doubled the recipe and used jumbo muffin cups. I then bake about 10 minutes longer. —Gena Stout, Ravenden, Arkansas

"this is such a tasty recipe! I make these and put them in individual zip lock bags and freeze them and then my husband can have a hot breakfast whenever he desires. I usually make them in jumbo muffin cups and get 6 per recipe. Very, very good recipe!"
