Mini Quiche in your Breville Personal Pie Maker are quick to whip up, and are so simple to stick in the fridge or freezer for quick breakfasts throughout the week. I got the mini pie maker quite a few months ago, and after I make a few more things with it I will be sure and post a complete review for you guys. So far, I like it, but there are a couple of small things I would like to see if time and experience will sort out for me. This recipe can be adapted easily if you do not have this machine into muffin tins or a small cast iron pan in the oven.

Begin by plugging in your Breville Personal Pie Maker and letting it preheat really well. While it is heating up, cut your tortillas.

After your tortillas are cut, cook your sausage according to the package directions.

You can use any kind of breakfast sausage for this. The links, or plan ground sausage would work just as well as these patties did. These patties just happened to be on sale.

Remove the sausage from the pan and add some diced up mushrooms. I used two medium sized white mushrooms for this.

Once the mushrooms are browned, scoot them over to the side of the pan and toss in a handfull of spinach. I chopped mine up a bit first. You don’t have to. Tearing it up, or just throwing it in whole would work just as well.

Stir that around until the spinach is wilted, give the mushrooms and spinach a shake of salt and pepper, and then remove to a bowl.

Chop up the sausage and mix it in with the other ingredients.

Take 3 eggs, 3 Tablespoons of milk, and 1/4 tsp salt and whisk together well until they are fully incorporated together.

Briefly microwave the tortillas for 20-30 seconds to warm and soften so they do not tear when you press them into the pan. Using the tool that came with your pie maker, press the tortillas into the machine, add a heaping tablespoon of the filling mixture, and then fill with the egg mixture. Sprinkle the tops with cheddar cheese.

If you want, you can put a top “crust” on with a top tortilla, you can do a fancy little lattice as you will see pictured below, or you can just leave them open faced.

Bake for approximately 7-10 minutes, or until the eggs are set. If the edges start to get overcooked, prop open the lid using the tool provided for the last few minutes, as pictured below.

Carefully remove when finished either using the option removal tool, which I do not have, or by using a fork to gentle lift the edge, and then scooping it out with a large flat bottomed utensil.

Total time

  • 1 handfull fresh spinach
  • 3 eggs
  • 3 TBSP milk
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • ⅓ cup cheddar cheese

  1. Plug in pie maker. Cut tortillas using the tool provided. Set aside.
  2. Fry sausage according to package directions. Remove from pan and add mushrooms. Cook over medium heat until browned, scoot to the side of the pan, and add spinach. Cook, stirring frequently, until wilted. Lightly salt and pepper the vegetables. Remove from pan. Chop the sausage up and mix in with the spinach/mushroom mixture.
  3. Mix three eggs with milk and salt well.
  4. Microwave tortillas for 20-30 seconds to soften. Press tortillas into pie maker using tool provided. Add a heaping tablespoon of filling, and fill remaining room with egg mixture. Sprinkle with cheddar cheese, and if desired top with top tortilla.
  5. Close lid and cook 7-10 minutes. Check mid-way through. If the edges are getting overly browned, prop open lid for remaining time. Cook until centers are set.

 

Notes:

  • If you misjudge the doneness of the completely incased quiche as I did, and when you cut into it, you find its a bit runny, nuking it for 30 seconds solves the problem. I would suggest cooking the encased quiches a little longer than the open or partially open ones.
  • This made a little bit extra of each of the ingredients for me. I fried it up in the frying pan I used to cook the other ingredients and ate that while I waited for the others to bake! Yum!

    I just got one of these, and I’m very excited about it! I’m a bit nervous about making sure the filling is cooked, as it’s only 10 minutes in the cooker. Could you tell me if this recipe would work, or if I have to adapt it? I don’t mind if I have more filling than I need….I’m more concerned about whether the filling will be safe to eat after cooking in it. :)

    Whether or not the filling will cook fully depends on the specifics of your cooker, your eggs, and the environment. Mine were a TINY bit under cooked when I had to pull them out, but 30 seconds in the microwave finished them off without effecting the texture of the crust. Next time I would fill them a bit less and I think they will fully cook that way. Hope you enjoy them, and my apologies for taking so long to respond to this!!

    I’m more for sweet pies. I’ve been having fun with these things. Mini pie makers can be tricky to use. Some will burn your crust. Some have a difficult time baking the center of pie tops. The list goes on. However, I’m determined to bake a perfect mini pie that I can share with family and friends. I post my pie maker with the hopes you learn from my blunders.
