Learn how to make mini quiche. Roll out a store-bought pie crust, whisk up some eggs and make these your own, in minutes!
If you read our previous post on Korean-Style Steamed Eggs, you may recall how we came into a dozen beautiful farm-fresh eggs, thanks to a kind friend paying us a Sunday visit to our lake cottage, a week or so back. In my opinion, there's nothing better than some good ole' American fried eggs and toast although sometimes it's fun to mix things up a bit, especially in the kitchen.
Although it seems we may be taking an international tour with these eggs, that wasn't necessarily our intention. From Korea, our serendipitous egg journey make its next stop into the land of the Eiffel Tower and thus we are pleased to show you how to make mini quiche, Platter Talk style.

When I hear the word quiche, as soon as my mouth stops watering, a few things come to mind. Eggs, savory flavors, pastry, brunch and of course French cuisine. It is indeed all these things and much more. Served in the form of an open-face pie, quiche is traditionally a mixture of eggs, cream, cheese, and savory additions.
Anyone who has ever strolled down the frozen aisle of the grocery store knows that any variety of commercially prepared frozen quiches can be picked up. We've used these on multiple occasions out of convenience. For an added personal and impressive touch, try this easy method of making your own quiches.
These are perfect for parties, showers, church and other social functions, and can be made with a few eggs, a frozen pie crust, and whatever additions you want to throw in the mix.
