When sweet and savory flavors are what you crave, these Mini Brie and Apple Quiches hit the spot.
This is a unique appetizer that is always a favorite at parties and showers. It feels like a very fancy, time-consuming recipe that you spent hours preparing, but in reality, it is so simple and bursting with flavor.
Preparing the Mini Quiches
The knife-work is what will take the most prep time, but it goes pretty quickly. Dicing the apples is easy using the 4" Paring Knife. You’ll want to cut them pretty small so they’ll fit into the mini phyllo shells.
The flavor of these little quiches really takes shape when you add the bacon. Chop it into small pieces using a 7-5/8" Petite Chef.
When cutting the brie, use a Cheese Knife. The holes in the blade will help prevent the cheese from sticking, making cutting this softer cheese much easier.
Change It Up
I reduced the fat in this recipe by using egg whites. You can also change up the flavor by swapping out the apples with pears.
These Mini Brie and Apple Quiches are the perfect bite. A bit of sweet from the apple, some savory from the bacon and mild, buttery flavor from the brie. Serve them as a fun breakfast or impress a crowd by serving them at your next party.
The only downfall is that these little appetizer bites are so easy to just pop in your mouth and enjoy, so they don’t last long.
If you enjoy this brie recipe, also give Cutco’s festive Cranberry, Brie and Pistachio Bites a try. Just like these little quiches, the bites are also pretty and are easy to make. They also have a great flavor profile of brie, cranberry, pistachios and rosemary.
