I realize that only two months ago I shared a single serving quiche recipe baked inside of a bagel but I enjoy eggs for breakfast and am sharing another single serving quiche recipe (and admittedly not the most photogenic food item).

This time it is baked in a mini homemade pie crust, so it’s just like a traditional quiche but miniaturized. And it’s the same pie crust I used for the bourbon pecan pie for one.

What other mini pies would you want to make using this since serving pie crust?

Yield: 1 serving Prep Time: Cooking Time:
Nutrition facts: 200 calories 20 grams fat



  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/8 tsp sugar
  • 1/8 tsp salt
  • 2 Tbsp cold unsalted butter
  • 1/8 tsp white vinegar (or lemon juice)
  • 1 Tbsp cold milk


  • 3-4 Tbsp desired filings (I used chopped tomato, ham, and basil)
  • 2 eggs + 1 Tbsp milk, beaten
  • Salt and pepper, to taste


  1. In a small bowl combine the flour, sugar, and salt. Cut butter into the flour mixture until it resembles coarse crumbs.
  2. Combine the vinegar with the milk and sprinkle over the mixture. Stir and then form into a ball.
  3. Place in plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes or overnight (could also make a bigger batch and freeze for later use).
  4. Preheat oven or toaster oven to 375 degrees. Spray a 1-cup ramekin or mini pie pan with nonstick spray (I used a deep, 4-inch pyrex).
  5. Roll out pie crust to fit the prepared pan. Place fillings in the pie and cover with egg mixture.
  6. Bake 20 to 30 minutes, or until the egg is completely set. Serve immediately.

I’ve made this so many times now. Hubby is obsessed!
I make a double batch of crust and I add half a teaspoon each of dried oregano, thyme, rosemary, garlic granules, onion granules. Gives it a really nice Italian inspired flavour.
I find that the milk quantity is a bit too much and I always have to add extra flour, just adding a bit at a time until I get the right playdough consistency.
I’ve also made with 1Tbsp olive oil per batch instead of butter when I ran out one day. Also turned out good, but prefer the butter crust.
I roll the crust super thin to fit my ramekin and do it with 6 eggs and 3 Tbsp milk, chopped up sliced Edam and turkey. It takes probably 45 mins in my oven because of the bigger batch size. This makes 4 big slices.
We re-heat leftovers in the microwave, then dry fry it in a pan to make the crust crunchy again.
Thanks so much for the recipe. A firm favourite!

I love that you modified it to serve 2! Great idea to add seasoning tot he crust as well, I will have to try that.

Absoutely love this recipe! I have made it multiple times now, and most recently I substituted avocado oil for the butter. It turned out delicious, I only used 1 1/2 tablespoons instead of 2. Thank-you for creating a single serving quiche crust recipe, this is the only one that I can find on the internet!

“Mix vinegar with water” you do not list water in your ingredient list, please clarify.

My apologies, it should read “mix vinegar with milk” not water. I have updated it.

I like the idea of individual quiches (is quiches a word??). A customized quiche for breakfast…or lunch or dinner.

I love this mini quiche idea! Perfect for single serve breakfasts.
