I posted a fun recipe yesterday for Quiche in a Jar…..
I served these recently as part of a buffet for a wedding shower and they were a big hit. This unique twist on a traditional quiche would also be fun for a brunch, a ladies lunch or really any gathering of family and/or friends. One wonderful advantage to this yummy recipe is that it can be prepared ahead and frozen – just unthaw these individual servings, pop them in the oven to rewarm and you have a super easy, delicious breakfast, lunch or casual dinner. I love to serve these quiches with a simple green salad to make a lovely, interesting presentation.
The quiche recipe I posted yesterday was for a crustless quiche; basically – eggs, half and half and cheese blended together along with a bit of fresh corn and crumbled Italian sausage, poured into small jam jars and baked until puffed, golden, fragrant and ……………. delicious!
Today’s recipe adds one extra step, lining the quiche jars with a flaky, delicious pastry which takes this yummy treat right over the top! As you can see in the pictures these individual quiches are adorable and taste as good as they look. So if you have a bit more time, give these crusted quiches a try, I think you will love the extra layer of deliciousness. But really either way, you can’t go wrong!
P.S. Oh, and I used the extra dough to make the fun little heart shaped decorations for the top of the quiches – yummy and pretty too!
