This is a recipe that Lily’s being making for the last few days. She found the simple recipe in one of her books and made it even better using the leftover smoked gouda from some pierogies (recipe soon!) we made this week. These mini quiches were really delicious and we gobbled them up quickly! Perfect for those days you’re stuck inside.
I helped her with the recipe the first time but she was able to make these on her own (with a little help from Leify) afterwards. Here’s what she did:
Smoked Gouda and Corn Mini Quiches
- 1 1/4 cup All Purpose Flour
- pinch of Salt
- 6 tbsp cold Butter, cubed
- 6 tsp cold Water
- 1/2 cup Smoked Gouda Cheese, shredded
- 1 Egg
- 3 tbsp Milk (she used So Delicious Coconut Milk)
- frozen or canned Corn
- Preheat oven to 375’F and set aside mini muffin tins. (We made a few regular muffin sized as well)
- In a medium bowl, whisk together flour and salt. Cut in the cold butter with a pasty cutter or use your fingers to rub the butter into the flour until it looks like small pebbles.
- Add the water and bring the dough together with your hands, squeezing it into a ball. Add more water by the tsp if you think you need it but try not to add much. As you are working the dough, the butter will melt a bit and help it come together. Leave the dough in the bowl and put in it the fridge while you prepare the rest of the ingredients.
- Shred the cheese and set aside. In a small bowl, whisk together the egg with the milk and set aside. (We ended up needing a bit more egg and milk mixture because some of our quiches weren’t mini.)
- Sprinkle some flour on your work surface and roll the dough out until it is quite thin, maybe a 1/4 inch thick.
- Cut rounds with a round cookie cutter (or mason jar for bigger muffin tins) and gently push the rounds of dough into the muffin tins. Don’t push down too hard!
- Put about a tsp of corn in each, sprinkle cheese on top and fill with a small amount of the egg and milk mixture.
- Bake for 15-20 minutes or golden and puffy. Use a knife around the mini quiches to help them come out to cool. Enjoy!
