Quiche for One

by Erin

Make your own mini quiche complete with a mini homemade pie crust. Then dress it up using your favorite quiche fillings. Perfect for one or double for two!

Quiche for One 2

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?

QUICHE FOR ONE

Serves 1

Ingredients:

CRUST

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

FILLING

3-4 Tbsp desired filings (I used chopped tomato, ham, and basil)

2 eggs + 1 Tbsp milk, beaten

Salt and pepper, to taste

Directions:

  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.

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.
