Looking for an easy morning..even a make ahead dish? These simple yet tasty little Morning Quiche are perfect for a morning meal, midday snack or for a brunch/fellowship meal.
They also are so super simple to make:
3 slices bread
1/2 cup shredded cheese (your choice)
1 cup milk
1 teaspoon nutmeg (any season you like will work)
1 pinch pepper and salt
Filling – you can add anything you want. This morning we had two types. The first batch had carrots and onions. The second batch had my tabbouleh (yes – I had a small amount left over and wanted to use it).
Only your imagination can limit the combinations. Of course, you don’t have to add anything to them at all. Just the cheese and egg mixture makes wonderful snack bites.
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Lightly grease 12 muffin tins.
Trim or cut bread into circles. I use a small glass or biscuit cutter. Each slice of bread will make four circles. Not rocket science, you can even tear off the crust and stuff in the muffin pan. Place circles in bottom of muffin tins.
Add the cooked mixture that you have allowed to cool to room temp, along with the cheese to each muffin tin.
In a bowl, combine milk, eggs, seasonings, salt and pepper. Pour over the mixture – dividing between the muffin tins.
Bake in preheated oven for 18-20 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center of a Quiche comes out clean.
These little Morning Quiche are the perfect size to put with a sausage patty on an English muffin! 🙂
These freeze well… just thaw out in fridge over night and warm in the morning in your microwave.
By the way… the ones with the tabbouleh were the best to me! Who would have thought???

Never thought of putting bread in a quiche. Sounds yummy.

I love the fact that these can be made ahead and reheated so easily. Great Idea!

i’m wondering if you can make it all, minus the bread circles, and cook it up and then put on top of ‘toast’. i think i’ll try this. thank you much.
Yes.. you can make it without the bread. I have also used pie crust. Once they cool, they are the perfect size for an english muffin.
I’m not a big quiche fan but this recipe looks great
the recipe looks good but may be better with a flakier crust rather than bread?
You can use a pie crust but the bread actually soaks up the egg/cream and you don’t even know it’s there. I have also used biscuit dough for a puffier appearance.
It looks delicious. I think I’ll try it soon. I need some good breakfast recipes.
This looks very good and the prizes are too!

I love the convenience of freezing,bringing them out to thaw overnight & microwaving in the morning.
Debbie Welchert says
This recipe is so easy and fast and will make a wonderful breakfast for my grandchildren.
I was wondering about the tabbouleh, interesting way to use the leftovers. I will have to try this as breakfast sometimes gets lost in the morning rush.
This is awesome for breakfast! I like them better the next day or that night for a snack… perfect size for an english muffin.
Wow…this is SO easy that even I can do it!! Thank you for an easy, tasty-looking recipe.

I’ve been looking for a good quiche recipe to try. This looks yummy – except I want the crust! That’s the best part of a quiche 😉
These have a crust if you put bread in the bottom.. you could also use a pie crust if you wanted more and just put on the bottom or line the entire muffin pan… hmmm I think I will try that!

My daughter and I really love quiches. You can make a quiche to fit anyone’s taste buds-unless they dairy free. You can throw pretty much anything you like in it plus cheese, milk and eggs and viola! I like your Morning Quiche recipe. It’s very simple and can be made from items you already have at home for breakfast or a snack. I like the bread idea, way easier then making a crust!
nancy bowers says
Never saw quiche made with bread.
Michelle Henderson says
My husband has been asking me for a quiche…this one is a winner! Thank you so much for sharing such an easy and great recipe.
