Mini Puff Pastry Quiche
Nonstick cooking spray
2 large eggs
1/2 cup heavy cream
1 Tablespoon chopped fresh herbs (parsley, basil, chives, etc.)
2 Tablespoons roasted red peppers, chopped
1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
1/8 teaspoon freshly cracked pepper
1/8 teaspoon McCormick crushed red pepper flakes
1/2 sheet frozen puff pastry, thawed
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Lightly coat cups of a mini muffin pan with cooking spray.
In a medium bowl, whisk all ingredients together up until puff pastry.
On a lightly floured surface, unfold pastry sheet and roll into a 12-inch square. Cut into about 20 (2-inch squares) and press each square into a mini muffin pan cup. Spoon about 1 tablespoon egg mixture into each cup.
Bake for 12-14 minutes, or until the filling is set and quiches are golden brown. Let cool in pans for 2 minutes before removing to a serving platter.
Springtime Entertaining Tips
MAKE PREP A SNAP
The trick to making brunch as effortless as possible is to opt for make-ahead or simple dishes. Look for an easy casseroles or coffee cakes, which allow you to prepare everything in advance, or salads, which can be made while catching up with guests.
BRING IN SPRING
With airy accents like fresh flowers and white linens, any spring party can feel effortlessly elegant. Also try pitchers full of lemons, clementines and limes for a colorful, unexpected burst of color!
Whip up an easy but impressive flavored butter by mixing one stick of butter with 1/4 cup jam or honey and 1/4 teaspoon pure lemon or orange extract. For a more savory option, mix one stick of butter with 1 teaspoon each of garlic powder, Italian seasoning and ground mustard.
