Equipment needed for these 6 Ingredient Mini Breakfast Quiche:
- Muffin tins I prefer to use my non-stick muffin tins for baking quiche. I also give them a good dose of PAM. If you prefer to avoid using cooking spray, you can line the muffin tins with cupcake wrappers.
- Mixing bowl A medium sized mixing bowl will be needed to mix up the ingredients for the quiche.
- Whisk I like to use a whisk to combine the 6 basic ingredients in this breakfast quiche, but a large spoon or spatula could also be used as long as the seasonings are well incorporated with the remaining ingredients.
- Measuring cups Measuring cups are needed to ensure you have an accurate measurement of the milk/sour cream, bacon and cheese in this breakfast quiche.

Ingredients needed for these mini breakfast quiche: Bacon, shredded cheese, beaten eggs, sour cream, salt and pepper.
Which is better in these mini breakfast quiche, sour cream or milk?
My personal preference is to use milk in these mini quiche, I use a full fat whole milk from a local dairy, and the quiche turn out really nice and fluffy. I have also tried these quiche with the sour cream pictured above, but found the quiche to be thicker and more dense, which is great if you need the quiche to be a little more filling. If you aren’t sure which you prefer, you could also try mixing half the amount of milk with half the amount of sour cream before adding it to the breakfast quiche mixture.
Step 1: Whisk together the beaten eggs and the remaining ingredients in a large mixing bowl.
How do I know if I should add more salt and pepper to the quiche?
Because the eggs are raw, I don’t recommend tasting the quiche until they are baked, which is why a measurement is given for the salt and pepper. However, taste preferences can vary and my quiche was made with a smoked bacon that tends to be saltier than most deli ham, sausage, etc. If you aren’t sure about the amount of salt and pepper, I would recommend testing half a batch of this breakfast quiche first, and then adjusting the amounts to taste according.
Step 2: Transfer the quiche mixture to greased or lined muffin tins, filling each tin 3/4 full from the top.
Step 3: Bake the quiche for 20-25 minutes until golden and set in the center, then cool slightly and enjoy.
