Mini quiches are a great go-to party food. Not only are they easy to prepare, but you can also add or subtract ingredients based on what you have in your fridge or what is fresh. Only have potatoes and green onions - no problemo. Spinach and mushroom - that will do! Swiss chard would be a good substitute for the spinach. OR - make a big one and eat it at home! If you prefer yours with crust just add that to your ingredient & prep list.

12 mini quiches or 1 big one


  • 1/2 cup Jerusalem Artichokes peeled & thinly sliced
  • 3 eggs lightly beaten
  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 1/3 cup chives or green onions
  • 1 teaspoon fresh thyme fresh is best but dried will do
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt


Pre-heat the oven to 350º.
Place the sliced Jerusalem artichoke into a small pot of boiling water. Cook for 8-10 minutes, until the artichokes are tender. Drain and set aside.
Then, prepare the egg mixture. In a large mixing bowl, lightly beat the eggs. Then add the olive oil, salt, red pepper and thyme and stir until everything is combined. Then add the chives and potato and Jerusalem artichokes and stir again.
Lightly grease a mini muffin pan. Spoon the egg mixture into the pan, and fill each cup to the brim. Bake for about 15 minutes, until the sides are pulling off the edge. Be careful not to overcook because you do not want the eggs to be dry. Remove and allow them to cool slightly.
Serve warm or at room temperature. They will keep for a couple of days in the refrigerator.
