Very simple, effortless make-ahead appetizers! Bisquick saves the day and makes its own crust! I have been making these appetizers since 1986. They freeze very well, and you can heat them, place them on a warming tray, and tada! Done. Feel free to change the type of meat and cheese you use! I tend to have a batch of these in the freezer for impromptu gatherings. I have also taken them when traveling a distance. By the time we get to a gathering, they simply have to be warmed up and served. also makes a quick to-go breakfast! Just heat and eat!

Blue Ribbon Recipe

These cocktail quiches are a delicious bite-sized appetizer for your next party or brunch. They're similar to a mini crustless quiche and can be enjoyed warm or at room temperature. Once baked, the quiche is slightly firm but creamy inside (partially thanks to the cottage cheese). We opted to add the chives and crumbled bacon and loved the flavor they added.

How To Make cocktail quiche

Test Kitchen Tips
After these cooled for 5 minutes, we ran a butter knife around the edges, and they easily came out of the tin.
  • Oven preheating to 375 degrees.
    Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Spray mini muffin pans, about 4-5 dozen.
  • Eggs and remaining ingredients in a bowl.
    In a large bowl, combine all ingredients. Blend until mixed.
  • Filling muffin tins with egg mixture.
    Fill each cup almost to the top.
  • Baking the Cocktail Quiche.
    Bake for 25-30 minutes.
  • Cooling the baked Cocktail Quiche.
    Cool in pans for 5 minutes before removing.
  • A platter of Cocktail Quiches.
    These can be frozen when completely cooled for quite some time. When ready to serve, reheat in the oven for about 10 minutes from frozen (or toaster oven for smaller amounts) until warmed through. Easy Easy Easy!
