MINI QUICHE (Gluten-Free)
Extra virgin olive oil spray (check out our olive oil mister in store)
¼ Cup finely crushed Crunchmaster Multi-Grain Crackers Rosemary & Olive Oil
6 Tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
2 Tablespoons Verde Valley Olive Oil Traders Basil or Natural Olive Oil
1 Cup finely chopped onion
1 10-oz. package frozen spinach, thawed
½ teaspoon salt
½ teaspoon black pepper
¼ teaspoon grated fresh nutmeg
1 Cup shredded sharp cheddar cheese
2 large eggs
1 Cup milk
1 roasted red pepper, cut into 48 small slivers
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray a mini-muffin pan (24 tins) with non-stick olive oil spray.
Combine the cracker crumbs and melted butter. Divide crumb mixture among the prepared mini-muffin cups and press down firmly. Bake for 7 – 8 minutes. Remove from oven and set aside.
In a large skillet over medium heat, heat the oil and add the chopped onion. Cook onions until very soft and starting to brown, about 10 minutes, stirring occasionally. Squeeze all the liquid out of the spinach; add spinach to the onions, along with the salt, pepper and nutmeg, and cook, stirring, for 30 seconds. Divide the mixture evenly on the cracker crumbs. Divide the shredded cheese on top of the spinach mixture.
Whisk the eggs and milk together and spoon into the muffin cups; do not fill all the way. Top with the roasted red pepper slivers and bake until set and browned, about 20 minutes.
Makes 24 mini quiches.
