Bacon & Cheddar Cheese Mini Quiches

At the photo shoot for this recipe, everyone mainlined these little pop-able bites. Made in a mini-muffin tin, these are quiches real men will want to eat. This quiche recipe features the traditional bacon and cheese flavors everyone loves, and because they’re crustless, these quiches are really easy to make.


  • Prep Time: 15 minutes
  • Cook Time: 15 minutes
  • Yield: 48 mini quiches


  • Cooking spray
  • 1 dozen large eggs
  • 1 1/2 cups sharp cheddar cheese, grated
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • 6 slices cooked, crisp bacon, finely chopped
  • 1/4 cup minced chives
  • 1/8 teaspoons black pepper


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F and spray mini muffin pans with cooking spray.
  2. Whisk eggs in a large bowl until combined. Add cheese, cream, bacon, chives, and pepper and whisk to combine. Use a Tablespoon measure to spoon mixture evenly across muffin pans (be sure to scoop down in the bowl to evenly distribute cheese and bacon).
  3. Bake for 15 minutes or until set. Allow to cool before removing from pan. Serve warm.


Mini quiches can be made the day before. Reheat in a warm oven before serving.

  1. If want to cook these at home to carry to work same day, they will obviously be cold by the time we have them. Will they work well with being reheated in microwave? Or are they ok if eaten after they are at room temp?
    Thanks for a quick response.

  2. Amy, I am hosting a Cancer Survivor Brunch on Saturday Dec.5. Can I make these today ( Thursday Dec 3) or is that too soon?

    1. Actually, they freeze well. You could make them today, then, after they cool, put them in the freezer. Then just warm them up again Saturday morning.
      That said, they really don’t take long to make. If you pre-cook the bacon and shred the cheese (you could do both of those today), they come together really quickly – just whisk together bake it up.
      Have a lovely brunch! I think that sounds like a really great reason for one!

  3. Yes, definitely! Now that you mention it, that’s a really good idea for making ahead before a party.

  5. You left out the bacon in the list of ingredients. How much bacon should we use? Thanks.

    1. Hey Sandra,
      It looks like a vegetarian elf hacked in and edited our recipe. 🙂 It’s 6 slices of crisp cooked bacon, chopped small. We fixed the recipe above.
