Ripe Olive Mini Quiches

Ripe Olive Mini Quiches

Pre-baked frozen phyllo cups make it easy to whip up these indulgent nibbles in a snap. Look for these time-saving gems (which are also sometimes spelled filo or fillo) in the frozen food section, near pie crusts and puff pastry. You could modify this super-flexible recipe to suite your tastes: Add bacon crumbles and caramelized onions to make a classic quiche Lorraine; try chorizo and green onion slices for a south-of-the-border zip; swap the Swiss for fontina and add Red Roasted Peppers for a Mediterranean twist. The possibilities are almost endless!
