Ham & Gruyere Mini Quiches

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

    Great recipe. Easy, delicious and the individual portions make a great presentation for sharing. I made these for my son's school for teacher appreciation week and they were a big hit. I made half as directed with ham and half with mushrooms to accommodate the vegetarian teachers.

    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!
