Mini Mushroom Quiche Caps: Main Image

Quick Facts

Servings: 18
Prep Time: 15 min.
Cook Time: 10 min.
Total: 25 min.
These decadent appetizers are surprisingly easy to prepare but taste like they took hours of effort.

Ingredients

  • 8 oz mushrooms
  • non-stick cooking spray
  • 1/4 cup finely diced green onion
  • bacon, 3 strips, cooked
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • pinch of freshly ground black or white pepper
  • 3 large eggs
  • 2 large egg whites
  • 2 Tbs half-and-half
  • 1 tsp Dijon mustard
  • 2 oz shredded Swiss cheese

Directions

  • Preheat oven to 325 F. Spray mini muffin pans with non-stick spray. Slice 3 mushrooms for garnish. Heat a 10" non-stick skillet and heat over medium-high heat and spray with cooking spray. Add a single layer of mushrooms, and cook, without stirring, for about five minutes or until mushrooms become red-brown on one side. Turn and cook about five minutes or until other side is same color. Set mushrooms aside.
  • Chop remaining mushrooms and add with onions, salt and pepper and saute, stirring occasionally, 8 minutes, until onions are soft and all moisture has evaporated. Remove from the heat and let cool.
  • In a large bowl, whisk eggs, half-and-half and mustard. Stir in mushroom mixture and cheese.
  • Divide egg/mushroom mixture among muffin cups, filling each about 3/4 full. Top each cup with one slice of mushroom and lightly spray with non-stick spray. Bake about 20-25 minutes until puffed and set. Let cool in the pan 5 minutes. Using a teaspoon, gently run the spoon around the edge of each cup and scoop each quiche to remove. Place a sauteed mushroom slice on top of each quiche and serve.
