Tailor this Mini Onion Quiches Recipe to Your Palate

Personally I adore quiche and could eat it every day! Well maybe not every day but you know what I mean. I like the traditional kind with lots of cheese and a nice crust, although I did have the crustless ones when I was doing Atkins. I also like to add blue cheese to mine. The flavor is amazing!

Quiche is always fantastic and it can be served hot, warm or chilled. There are so many varieties to choose from too. Although a slice of quiche is always great (or a half of a big quiche if you are me!) some occasions are better suited to mini quiches, so everyone has their own individual portion.
These look more charming and elegant, and are nice served with some salad leaves or a similar garnish, perhaps a sprig of parsley or basil. Quiche makes a wonderful snack or starter. This mini onion quiches recipe is easy and satisfying.
