MINI CARAMELIZED ONION QUICHE

Nothing quite says comfort like a quiche among friends👩‍❤️‍👩, especially when served with wine. Quiche can be anything you want it to be — sweet, savory, mini, pie-size, vegetarian, meaty, spicy. Whatever your flavor, just go light on the crust. A quiche crust could be made with phyllo dough, just a touch of crust on top, or without a crust at all.
Prep Time 20 minutes
Cook Time 50 minutes
Total Time 1 hour 10 minutes
Course Appetizer
Servings 24 mini

Equipment

  • muffin tin or mini muffin tin

Ingredients
  

  • 2 Tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 1/2 cups thinly sliced sweet onions
  • 3/4 cup evaporated nonfat milk
  • 3/4 cup nonfat milk
  • 3 whole eggs or egg substitute equivalents
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
  • 1 cup grated provolone cheese
  • 6 phyllo dough sheets thawed
  • Nonstick cooking spray

Instructions
 

  • Preheat the oven to 350 F.
  • Place a sheet of phyllo dough on parchment paper.
  • Lightly spray with oil, then place another sheet on top.
  • Repeat layering until you have 6 sheets stacked up.
  • Using a sharp knife, cut the stack into 12 equal pieces.
  • Press each piece into the cups of a muffin tin. Bake for about 13–15 minutes (for regular muffin tin size, 8–10 minutes for mini), or until golden brown.
  • Keep an eye on the oven to make sure they don’t burn. *If this part sounds like a drag, buy those pre-made ones!
  • While the cups are baking, heat oil in a nonstick skillet over medium heat.
  • Add the onions and cook, stirring frequently until very soft and caramelized, about 12–15 minutes.
  • Remove the onions from the pan with a slotted spoon and put aside.
  • Whisk together the evaporated milk, milk, eggs, salt and pepper in a medium bowl.
  • Stir in the onions and cheese. Pour into prepared shells. Bake 18–20 minutes, or until egg is set.
  • Remove and let sit for 10–15 minutes.
  • Serve warm.

Notes

Makes 24 mini quiches; approximately 4 lunchtime servings. *Crustless option: Skip the phyllo dough and pour mixture into a 9-inch pie pan coated nonstick cooking spray. Bake 40–45 minutes, or until set.
