Button Sized Impossible Quiche

I love Quiche. I love it hot. I love it cold (on a hot day anyway!). I love it with either salad or veggies. So it was a no-brainer that I would make individual quiche for Baby Starfish's birthday celebrations... but with a twist. I wanted teeny tiny ones. One of my beautiful friends Margaret loaned me the BEST EVER sized mini muffin pans, but I don't know about you, I hate trying to dig things out of any pan - even when they are greased - so I decided that they would need a liner - preferable cafe style (I'll be back with a how-to for that one later. Edit: Here's the tutorial).

They were delish. They were better than delish. They were scrummy (does anyone else besides me use that word? You know, scrumptious and yummy smooshed together?)! Aaaannnnndddd... they were gluten free and dairy free! (My brother reacts to both, so I like to cook things that he can eat).

So you know you want to make some now, don't you. Pick up the printable version of the recipe using the link or read on for more info.

Button Sized Impossible Quiche
Gluten and Dairy Free options listed


3 - 4 Eggs (depending on the egg size)
½ Cup Self Raising Flour (I used gluten free)
¼ Cup Melted Butter or Margarine (I used Nutalex)
1 ½ cups milk (I used Lite So Good, a soy milk)

The fun stuff:
This can be varied, depending on the flavour you are hungering for.

½ Cup of small, diced Pumpkin. Sauteed.
½ Cup of finely chopped Spanish Olives
1 Onion, finely diced and sauteed.
8 or more semi-sun dried Tomato halves, diced.
A little olive oil to saute with.

1. Pre-heat oven to 150 degrees Celsius.

2. Prepare mini muffin pans (or whatever you are using).

3. Prepare the fun stuff. I sauteed the onion, and the pumpkin (separately) in about 1 tsp of Olive Oil and set them aside.

4. Mix the first 4 ingredients in a large bowl (I was lazy and used my Kenwood Chef)

5. Add the fun stuff.

6. Bake at 150 deg C for about 10 minutes, or until golden looking and springs back to the touch. Let cool in pan.

Serve these on a plate for a party or pop some in your kid's lunch box's - you'll be one popular Mum!
Happy Baking!

  1. Brilliant recipe, great for lunchboxes. I have been baking, sewing and crocheting on my blog - check it out. Jo x

  2. They DO look scrummy. Perfectly acceptable word usage - its a favourite in our house! I'll have to have a go at those. Have you ever frozen them? I'm into freezing HUGE batches and taking a few out at a time at the moment.

    1. Thanks Katie! I have frozen them before. They aren't quite as nice as fresh, but they are still quite tasty. I'm a fan of making big batches and freezing things too. This week I was using up some of my freezer stash as all the kiddos and the hubby were sick in bed, and I was run ragged! Thankfully they are all on the mend now.

    Hi Sheree!
    Thanks so much for coming by my blog, so that I could find/meet you.
    I LOVE quiche too!! Have you ever had a frittata? They are so similar, minus the crust.
    Anyway, I love that you made mini quiche. That's a great idea!!
    You've inspired me!

    1. Yes I really like frittata too. :) And I love that I don't have to make the crust for these quiche because they make their own while they are cooking! (Makes life so much simpler).

  4. I love the GF options Sheree. Thanks for letting me know. I've got soy milk all the time but always forget to use it in my baking. (I don't usually have a problem with lactose but at least i can use it up.) thanks for popping by the blog.

  5. Get ready to squeal, Sheree, because I'm commenting! ;) Not that I actually think that is squeal-worthy or anything, but I just love you and am so thankful for all of your encouraging words on the blog (and for the twins' wee little hats...SO sweet), so I wanted to return the love...and thank you for the quiche recipe and the wax paper tip. I hate digging things out of those little pans too!

    Oh, and scrummy? I'm totally stealing it...even though I can't possible really pull it off with an E. Texas accent
