Mini quiches

When many people become vegetarians, they often slack on eggs and dairy. It's understandable, really. They're both hard to see and don't actually require the death of a living animal to acquire. However, there was always something about the way in which factory farm hens are forced to live that made me go to great pains to avoid conventional eggs. Therefore, it's not surprising that one of the first things I started making from scratch for parties were mini quiches. You can also have the flexibility of using whatever you want - I chose local king trumpet mushrooms.

  • 1 lb king trumpet mushrooms
  • 1 t minced rosemary
  • 1 T olive oil
  • 3 oz grated swiss cheese
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 C half and half
  • 24 filo dough mini shells
Chop the mushrooms and mince the rosemary. Saute the veggies in olive oil over medium heat until well browned.

Mix the cheese and the vegetables.

Distribute evenly among the shells.

Beat the eggs into the half and half. Pour into the shells to fill. Place in an oven preheated to 350ºF for approximately 30 minutes. Serve while warm.
