I love bite-sized food and these little quiches stand out not only because of their savory filling but also the texture and lightness of the phyllo cups. Instead of a traditional pie crust, these mini quiches are made with a flaky crust that gives them a unique texture, taking these mini quiches to the next level. Since the shells are premade, these appetizers are convenient and time-saving.

Ingredient notes and substitutions

Phyllo Shells- These pastry cups, also known as fillo shells or filo pastry, are made from thin layers of phyllo crust that have been fully baked. You can find them in the freezer section of your local supermarket.

If phyllo cups are unavailable, you can substitute them with premade tart shells made from pie crust. Alternatively, you can cut wonton wrappers, a phyllo sheet or puff pastry into small squares and press them into mini muffin tins.

Milk– Most quiche recipes call for heavy cream, but I prefer whole milk because I always have it on hand and really don’t notice a difference in the flavor of the quiche.

Cheese – When it comes to cheese, my personal favorite is definitely Swiss, cheddar cheese, or Gruyere cheese, but I must say that any variety of cheese can be used. In fact, experimenting with a combination of cheeses or your favorite cheese can yield some truly delicious results.

How to serve mini quiches

Mini phyllo quiches are a great appetizer choice, and they taste great with bruschetta or crostini, chicken taco cups, cheese board, stuffed mushrooms, a veggie tray, or olives and pickles.

You can also enjoy them as a quick breakfast with a bowl of fresh fruit or a light lunch with a tasty salad on the side.
