Recipe: Mini quiche Lorraine with tarragon

The miniatures lunch
April 27, 2012

Mini quiches have been my first idea for the miniatures lunch and they were very simple: I cut the pastry into small squares, pour the filling and baked using a muffin mold.

TarragonI chose a classic French recipe, the quiche Lorraine, adding a touch of tarragon, although the original recipe does not have it.

I was completely satisfied with these little quiches, and I think I will prepare them again soon.

I love quiche and I love individual quiches but I have never baked them in a muffin tin and I love the idea! These look delicious and so cute - perfect to set one or two on a lunch plate with a salad - the perfect meal. Great recipe! Thanks so much for joining my Monthly Mingle and adding something so good to the menu!
