Bacon and Mushroom Bite-Size Quiche

Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 35 minutes
Servings: 42

FOR ROASTS, CHOPS and TENDERLOINS

Cook to 145 F with 3 minute rest

Ingredients

8 slices bacon
1/4 pound fresh mushrooms, chopped
1 tablespoon butter
1/3 cup green onion, chopped
1 2/3 cups Swiss cheese, shredded
Pastry for double-crust pie, (homemade or purchased)
5 eggs
1 2/3 cups sour cream

Cooking Directions


Heat oven to 375 degrees F. On a lightly floured board, roll out the pastry dough 1/ 16-inch thick. Using a 3-inch cutter, cut out 42 circles; re-roll scraps as needed. Fit circles into bottoms and slightly up sides of lightly greased 2 1/2-inch muffin pans. Meanwhile, fry bacon slices until crisp, drain; crumble or chop. Chop mushrooms, saute in butter until limp and liquid evaporates. Combine bacon, mushrooms, green onion and cheese. Divide filling equally among muffin cups. In large bowl, beat together eggs, add sour cream and stir until smooth. Spoon about 1 tablespoon into each muffin cup. Bake until puffed and light brown, 20-25 minutes. Cool in pans 5 minutes; lift out. Serve warm or let cool on wire racks. If made ahead, wrap cooled quiches airtight, and refrigerate overnight. Reheat, uncovered, in a 350 degrees F. oven for about 10 minutes.

Makes 3 1/2 dozen.
Analysis done for one piece.

Also serve along with Ham and Green Chile Bite Size Quiche.

Serving Suggestions

Tender, cheesy and savory custards in flaky pastry shells make elegant finger food—and can be made ahead and reheated. Delicious for brunch or evening appetizers.

About the Cut: Bacon

The cut used to make bacon comes from the side - or belly - of the pig. When it is cured and smoked, it becomes bacon. An abundance of fat gives bacon its sweet flavor and tender crispiness.

Butcher's Tips

Bacon doesn’t just come from one place on a pig. In fact, English, American and Italian bacon comes from the belly of the pig while Irish and Canadian bacon comes from the back.

 Ate these at a friend's once and none of us could stop eating them! I made them myself later and they were just as big of a hit. Great recipe!

good anytime

I like these for game day or for potlucks. I like them in my mini muffin pans as two bites quiches. Can be made up the day before, refrigerated overnight and then reheated or even served cold.
