Delicious. I used a 9x12 pan since I didn't want to deal with the clean up issue. Used onions, mushrooms, red pepper, sweet potato, bacon, spicy cheddar. Threw a little extra shredded cheese on top. Even the kids ate it!

This was tasty, if a little bland. I should have anticipated that and added some cayenne or other seasoning. But I agree with LilyCooks. Cleanup was terrible. I like the idea of the muffin size but it's not worth the cleanup.

This recipe would be great to make if you want to torture whoever has dish duty. Sure, the mini quiches were good, but they weren't great. But it made a colossal mess! I prepared it as directed and everything stuck-- it took me several soaks and over an hour to clean the muffin pan. I may never make it again but if I do, I won't make this as directed. Next time I will make it in a pie pan and cut it. Also, you can't taste the smoked cheddar so no need to splurge on that, just use regular cheddar.

I only had a large muffin tin, so instead of 2 in a portion, I have 1 and they are delicious. These quiche freeze very well.

Awesome! Taste even better than I expected it would. Followed recipe as written except that I used a yukon gold potato instead of a red skin. This will be added to our regular weekday morning rotation: 1 mini quiche plus a green drink for breakfast. Hopefully it freezes well.

Excellent recipe! I have made this twice now and everyone raves about it. The first time I made it as the recipe was written, but quickly realized how adaptable this is - the second time I added fine-diced leftover Christmas ham into it also. And, I could imagine this with any kind of cheese or veggies. Excellent!!
