Mini Sausage Quiches
Total TimePrep: 25 min. Bake: 20 min.
- 1/2 pound bulk hot Italian sausage
- 2 tablespoons dried minced onion
- 2 tablespoons minced chives
- 1 tube (8 ounces) refrigerated crescent rolls
- 4 large eggs, lightly beaten
- 2 cups shredded Swiss cheese
- 1 cup 4% cottage cheese
- 1/3 cup grated Parmesan cheese
- In a large skillet, brown sausage and onion over medium heat until meat is no longer pink, 4-5 minutes; drain. Stir in chives.
- On a lightly floured surface, unroll crescent dough into one long rectangle; seal seams and perforations. Cut into 48 pieces. Press onto the bottom and up the sides of greased miniature muffin cups.
- Fill each with about 2 teaspoons of sausage mixture. In a large bowl, combine the eggs and cheeses. Spoon 2 teaspoonfuls over sausage mixture. Sprinkle with paprika.

Can't eat sausage to spicy; can I use crisp bacon in bite size instead. If so, how much bacon?

They are very good. I needed an appetizer that would be good at room temperature and these did the trick.

This recipe was LIFE CHANGING! IT was so amazing, and not only did I and my guests love it, but I now use it as a 'template' recipe for breakfast quiches. I switch up the ingredients, like the cheese, the sausage, add more veggies, I just keep the measurements for the eggs and the cheese the same, for the correct ratio of egg to cheese taste. Overall, THANKS SO MUCH, I love this recipe! It tastes great with all different cheeses and breakfast sausage too! Also - I've never made it in a mini muffin tin, I just use a regular 12 muffin cup tin and the timing on cooking it is the same.

I don't think the calorie count on these could be correct. Even doubling it for using a bigger muffin cup.

This recipe is tasty. But though it is good, I didn't really think it was worth the extra effort it took to prepare the separate quiches. I'll stick with Bacon Swiss Squares.

Made in regular muffins tins and got a batch of 16 when I used two cans of crescent dough. I substituted an Italian mix of cheese in the place of Swiss. So good! Will make again!

These were definitely a hit at the brunch baby shower today! I could only get around 30 out of the can of crescent rolls which meant I had filling left over. No worries saved the excess filling for us to make a few more for a quick breakfast.

Another hit for Christmas breakfast, made ahead then froze and taken out of the freezer first thing in the morning and placed in an oven on low, made in regular muffins tins, yum yum, I made it with ricotta.
