Troll Bites (Pizza Spiced Quiches GF)
I came up with this variation of crustless quiches for my daughter's Harry Potter Themed Potluck at school. They are best served warm but also ok served cold. They keep great in the fridge or freezer so feel free to make a double batch. A little tapioca starch gives this dish more of a smooth custard texture. I love using silicon muffin liners in my muffin pans to avoid sticky messes trying to dislodge the muffins from the holders.
Servings 12 bites
- 7-8 eggs
- .25 cup whole milk
- 1 cup uncured pepperoni small, diced (or another favorite pizza topping)
- 3 tbsp tomato sauce
- .75 cup shredded cheese (cheddar, mozzarella, feta) or small cubed pieces
- 1.5 tbsp dried basil
- 1.5 tbsp dried oregano
- .5 tsp salt
- .5 tsp pepper
- 1 tbsp tapioca starch optional
Preheat oven to 350°F.
In a large mixing bowl, combine eggs, tapioca starch, herbs, salt, pepper, tomato sauce and milk.
Use butter or fat of choice to prepare muffin pan or ramekins (skip this step if using silicon muffin liners)
Evenly scatter chopped pepperoni or other small diced pizza topping into each muffin cup.
Repeat with cheese.
Pour batter into each cup to 3/4 full (these puff up during cooking).
Push fork into each to be sure ingredients are at bottom and air pockets are reduced.
Bake for 30 minutes or until light brown on top. Do not overcook—they will continue to cook even after you remove them from the oven. Let cool for 5 to 10 minutes and then serve!
