Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Bring a medium pot of water to a boil. Cut 3 inches from the tip-ends of the asparagus; reserving remaining stalks for another use.

  • In a medium bowl, whisk together milk, heavy cream, eggs, yolk, and nutmeg. Season with salt and pepper. Strain through a sieve into a medium bowl; set aside.

  • On a lightly floured surface, roll out pate brisee to slightly less than 1/8-inch thick. Using a 2 3/4-inch round cutter, cut out 24 rounds. Fit rounds into a 24-cup nonstick mini muffin tin. If the pate brisee becomes too soft to work with, place in refrigerator to chill for 15 minutes. Divide half of the cheese, evenly between the lined cups. Top with ham. Divide milk mixture evenly between cups. Top each with 3 to 4 pieces of asparagus. Sprinkle with remaining cheese.

  • Bake until puffed and golden brown, about 30 minutes. Remove from oven and immediately remove quiches from muffin tin and transfer to a wire rack. Serve warm or at room temperature.

I love this recipe! I made it with regular cup cake pans. 2 pans with 6 cups each so 12 cups. I baked the recipe for 35 minutes. I also made two batches of the milk and egg mixture to fill the larger cups.I also left out the asparagus, because I don't like that. It turned out great, and it's a favorite of mine and my family now. Thank you!

These are excellent. I didn't have any pate brisee in the freezer and was in a hurry, so I used Pillsbury crusts. They came out GREAT!

These are an easy make-ahead appetizer. They freeze great, and are delicious. I mixed different items into the custard to add variety. Mushrooms were particularly yummy!
