Bittman's Mini "Quiches"

Inspiration:
Mark Bittman

Ingredients:
  • 1 cup cream (or half-and-half, milk or a combination) gently heated just until warm
  • 3 eggs, at room temperature
  • 3/4 cup grated Gruy√®re
  • 1/4 cup grated Parmesan
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8-1/4 teaspoon cayenne, or to taste
  • Butter as needed


Instructions:

  1. Heat oven to 325 degrees and set rack in middle of it. Combine all ingredients except butter and beat until well blended.
  2. Pour into 4 to 6 buttered ramekins and bake for 20 to 30 minutes, or until almost firm; it should still jiggle just a little in middle. Cool on a rack, then serve warm or at room temperature.
Suggested beverage: grapefruit or orange juice, espresso

Tim's Rating: 10/10 ("This is the best quiche I've ever had. It's much better than the big quiches.")
Liz's Rating: 10/10
