Real Babies DO Eat "Quiche"

quiche.jpg

One of my first food memories was my mother making quiche. Yes, quiche, the dish that most notably was in the title of a 1982 bestselling satirical book about masculinity. Quiche was my mother's tried and true recipe that worked for dinner parties, neighborhood picnics, luncheons and more. Whether she told me this or not, I always thought of quiche as sophisticated food. When she let me have a piece, I felt like one of the grown ups. I'm pretty sure that Kenya could care less about being anything but a little baby right now, but one thing is true_ he loves these crustless quiches.
Packed with tiny pieces of vegetables and cheese, these protein packed morsels only take minutes to prepare. I just toss all of the ingredients in the food processor, whiz it up and pour it into the molds. Really, it's that easy.
These are perfect for any meal of the day or even a little ones birthday party, so they can pretend to be one of the adults.

    Hi - we've fed both our daughters quiche since they were small and they both still love it. Our recipe is very similar to yours, except we use tinned salmon in it as well. Great for the Omega 3s!

    for this recipe, it says one zucchini. How big of a zucchini did you use?

      I'd like to know too please! I've been growing zucchini this summer and have picked zucchini ranging in size from 1/2lb to 5lbs!

    I doubled the ingredients & substituted broccoli for spinach & they were SUPER watery. Is it the broccoli or is this normal? I'd appreciate any advice before I attempt these again because my kids took one bite each & they were done!! :(

      Not every ingredient works the same and when doubling you have to be careful of all of your ingredients. I suggest not doubling it if you are going to make it again. Also broccoli does hold a lot of water as well and its hard to squeeze that water out whereas the spinach you can. Try using the recipe itself next time and let me know how they like it! :)

    can you use frozen spinach or does it have to be fresh?

    leave a comment

    • Catherine

      You can use frozen! Thaw and squeeze out some of the moisture first!

    Have you ever made these as regular sized muffins? If so how did you adjust the temperature and heating time?

    leave a comment

    • Catherine

      Keep the temperature the same. Add about 5 minutes to the cooking time, or until they are cooked through!

    Hi i have a question i was looking for a recipe for my sisters lunch and thought these looked amazing, do u think that it would taste okay after sitting a few hours in a lunch box??? Also do u think broccoli would taste okay in it??

    Thanks,
    Megan!

      yes, I think they would be okay in a lunch box! They might deflate a bit. Broccoli would be great! Just chop it really fine!

    Do you think it would work to freeze these then reheat in the oven? Also have you ever heard of using cornstarch in crustless quiche? I tried to make mini crustless quiche the other day (not your recipe, a different one) and they were didn't really stay together when I removed from the muffin tins . . . maybe I should've let cool longer?

      Eggs don't freeze very well so this is the type of recipe that you sort of have to make everything fresh. Hmm maybe they could have cooled longer, or maybe they fell apart because they were sticking to the pan? For sticking, just make sure to grease the pan well. I have never used cornstarch in a quiche! I'm not sure what the purpose would be.

    Wow! Seriously yummy. Made these tonight for dinner. Used mozzarella instead of Swiss (didn't have Swiss) and used 1/2 finely chooped red pepper, as per another users suggestion. Will be making these again for sure. I also grated 1/3 cup of mozzarella instead of 1/4 cup by accident so I sprinked it on top and it became crispy and delicious.

    I was out of few things and substituted 1/2 yogurt/1/2 silken tofu for cottage cheese and cheddar for the swiss and some kale for spinach - it was seriously delish!

    Do you think I could use ricotta instead of cottage cheese? I don't have any.

    What is the consistency supposed to be when done? Like a muffin? A soggy muffin? A fluffy cake?

    Also, how is the best way to freeze fresh spinach. I put mine in a tiny bit of water in an ice tray, and it came out as soaking wet as canned!! UGH!

    Hi! I was wondering if I could substitute the cheeses u used with cream cheese and cheddar cheese instead? Would the baking time be any different? Appreciate anyone's help with this!:) thanks!!

    If I were to substitute whole milk with almond milk and zucchini with broccoli, would the quiches turn out watery? If so, what are the changes I should make?
