Mini Bacon and Swiss Quiche Lorraines (7) Is January really almost over? Does that seem crazy to anyone else? Mini Bacon and Swiss Quiche Lorraines (5). That means crowds where I live. February is the busiest month of the year here. We live in a heavy vacation area, lots of tourists. The towns and beaches get insanely packed for the summer. This is now my second summer here but I still can’t get over how weird it is for me to be sunburned in February. Yes, sunburned, because I am cursed with the fair skin of the English and spent too much time in the sun yesterday.

Mini Bacon and Swiss Quiche Lorraines (4). I have always envied people who can lay out and bake for hours and walk away with a perfect tan when I would look like Bob the tomato. So not fair, and I won’t even mention the freckles, blah!

Mini Bacon and Swiss Quiche Lorraines (3) So, anyway, these mini quiches are something that I can’t believe I’ve never blogged before because they are one of our favorite appetizer type foods. Quiche has always been one of my dad’s favorites and I can’t make or eat it without thinking of him.

Mini Bacon and Swiss Quiche Lorraines These would make a great snack for the Super Bowl. Come on, bacon+eggs+cheese+flaky crusts=perfect game food. Plus, they are just the right size for the guys to shove in their mouths. Not that I reccomend that style of eating them, but I have brothers so I know a thing or two about how big dudes eat.

Mini Bacon and Swiss Quiche Lorraines (7). These are so versatile. Try adding different meats, cheeses, and veggies. Traditional quiche Lorraine is made with bacon and swiss but I like using ham and cheddar sometimes. Also, if your not into the carbs, try going crustless and if you want to serve this as a main course, make it in a large pie pan instead muffin pans. It’s good either way.

    Quiche Filling:
  • 5 pieces uncooked bacon
  • 1/2 cup cream
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 small onion, chopped
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon freshly chopped green onion
  • 3 tablespoons freshly grated parmesan
  • 1/2 cup shredded swiss
  • For Crust:
  • 1 1/2 cups flour
  • 7 tablespoons cold butter, cubed
  • 2 tablespoons reserved bacon grease
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1/4 cup ice water


  1. Cook bacon in a medium frying pan until crispy. Pour grease into a small dish and save pan.
  2. Combine flour, sugar, and salt in the bowl of food processor and pulse. Add butter and 2 tablesoons bacon grease and pulse a few times more until crumbly. Add water and process until the dough comes together. Turn out onto lightly floured surface and flatten into disk, wrap in plastic wrap; place in fridge for 1 hour or until you're ready to use it.
  3. Add onions and garlic to bacon pan and saute until soft.
  4. Whisk egg and cream in a medium mixing bowl. Crumble in bacon and add cooked onion. Add all other ingredients for filling and stir until mixed.
  5. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (180 C) and roll out pie dough on lightly floured surface into a 1/8 inch thick layer. Cut into 3 - 3 1/2 inch circles and press into greased muffin pans. Poke holes in the bottoms to vent and bake for 7 - 8 minutes.
  6. Remove from oven and spoon in quiche filling then return to oven and bake for 12 - 15 minutes more until crusts are golden and quiche is set.
  7. Serve warm.


These can be made ahead and frozen for a quick party snack or appetizer. They are also delicious crustless (although, they may need a little longer in the oven to set).

    haha yeah I’m with you – I burn so easily. I’m that lady who slathers on an insane amount of sunscreen every two seconds and wears a huge hat!

    These look delicious – and I love that they are mini. Makes them more fun!

    I am totally digging these mini-quiche, Tori! Quiche is actually one of my favorite foods, but my wife doesn’t dig baked eggs much…so we hardly ever have quiche around here. With the Super Bowl coming up, I think that is a valid excuse for making quiche, right? 🙂
