A few months ago, I shared that I was cutting out my Tim Horton’s habit in an effort to save myself some money. It’s worked out very well–to be honest, I can’t remember the last time I stopped at Timmy’s on my way to work. It’s been literal months.
I largely attribute that success to these mini quiche. On my way out the door in the morning, I can pour orange juice in my travel mug, grab these out of the fridge, and go on my merry way. I microwave them for 30 seconds when I get to work.
I like quiche for two reasons: I prefer a savory breakfast, and I can get creative with them.
I thought I would share my recipe so you can try them yourselves, if you feel so inclined!
To make the crust:
1 cup flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 c olive oil
1/4 c cold water
To make the filling:
1/2 cup milk
1/2 onion, chopped
1/2 carton mushrooms (any kind)
1/2 roll pork sausage
1. In a large pan or pot, cook 1/2 roll of pork sausage. Once the sausage is cooking and the fat has started to render, add your onion and mushrooms. Stir until everything is cooked to your liking. Turn off the stove and let everything cool.
2. To make the crust, first mix the flour and salt in a bowl. Add in the cold water and olive oil. Stir well. Once there is no flour left on the sides of the bowl, and the dough is a goopy-looking blob in the bowl, you’re done.
3. Grease a standard-sized muffin pan. Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Roll pieces of the dough into 1-1/2 inch balls, and drop them into the muffin pan. Then smash them down and around the muffin pockets to make the shape of the crust.
4. Mix eggs and milk together in a bowl. Spoon the sausage-and-mushroom mixture into each pocket of the muffin pan. Carefully pour the egg-and-milk mixture into each pocket, stopping when each pocket is 3/4 full.
5. Bake for 20 minutes. If more time is needed, add on five minutes.
