These little Meat Lovers Mini Quiche come together in a flash and would be a great addition to your next brunch. The pre-made shells look fancy enough for any party, or they’re easy enough to make any day of the week.
When Athens Foods asked me to create a brunch recipe using their crispy mini fillo shells my Meat Lovers Quiche came to mind. It’s one of my most popular recipes, and turning it into a quicker, easier to make, fun bite-size version seemed like a great idea.

Making Meat Lovers Mini Quiche
To make the recipe easier, I used pre-cooked bacon, pre-cooked link sausages, along with a little diced ham. I combined the meats with some pre-shredded cheese and quickly chopped up some green onion.
You add the meat mixture to the shells first. Then slowly pour the egg on top of the meats so the egg fills in around the meat. It was easiest if I held the shell in my hand when I poured the egg in so I didn’t over fill the shell.
These little meat lovers quiche would be a great way to use some of the leftover ham. Or, I like to buy a thick slice of my favorite ham at the deli counter.
I couldn’t have been more pleased with how these quiche turned out. They looked so puffy and golden brown when I took them out of the oven. My family quickly devoured them. I’m sure your family will too.

Wow – these look so good and I love that they are easy to make – a great addition to a brunch table!
Yum! Beats the same old quiche ideas. I love this in the mini shells and the flavors are perfect!
is it possible to get nutritional info on these and the regular sized quiche?
Hi Nancie – here’s a site I use for info https://www.caloriecount.com/cc/recipe_analysis.php
I love quiches! Can’t wait to make this. What kind of cheese do you recommend trying with it? Love eating quiches with a dab of hot sauce 🙂
Hi Rachel – I usually have a shredded cheddar Monterrey jack cheese on hand. So that’s what I used in this recipe, but you could use whatever cheese you prefer.

Bite size treats are my favorite either at get together or when I’m hosting playdates at the house.

Ooh three types of meat mum! That’s a great idea 😀 And I love how easy you’ve made these-easy to make and very easy to eat 😀 xxx
These are so adorable! These mini quiches are so yummy and delicious!
Delicious and so party-freindly!
This looks yummy ~ wondering about making a lot for an event ~ when the purchased shells would be cost prohibitive. Could I perhaps use the shell dough I would use for pecan tassies? Thanks!

These are my ultimate party food! I always go savory over sweet.. yum!!
How simple are these! I always have a package of the phyllo cups in my freezer, they’re so handy! These look terrific Barb.
What great looking baby quiches! I’ve never used the mini phyllo shells. This would be a great way to give them a try. They look delicious.
