Spice up breakfast with these cheesy mini quiches. Great cold or quickly reheated in the microwave for a fast breakfast, snack or appetizer.
Bake in 350º oven until just set; 12 - 15 minutes.
Cool on rack for 5 minutes.
How to tell if it's done. Baked custards should be removed from the oven before the center is completely set. The center will jiggle slightly when dish is gently shaken. Custard will continue to "cook" after it's removed and center will firm up quickly. Overbaked custard may curdle. The knife test: Test for doneness with a thin-bladed knife. Insert knife about 1 inch from the center of a one-dish custard; midway between center and edge. If knife is clean when pulled out, the custard is done. If any custard clings to the blade, bake a few minutes longer and test again. Cheese fillings: Quiche fillings containing cheese may continue to test "wet" even after they are done. Tap or gently shake the dish; remove quiche from oven when the center is almost set but still jiggles a bit.
Leftovers are good cold or reheated briefly in the oven or microwave. Great for snacking or a quick breakfast on the run.
