Savory Tartlets

 A quiche recipe prepared with quality ingredients can be an effortless & delicious offering perfect for any number of celebrations. No more than a few eggs & some heavy cream, the basic foundation can be filled with a variety of tasty ingredients for a custom creation. Mushrooms, spinach, asparagus, fresh herbs, goat cheese, Havarti & Gouda are just a few meatless notions that would be perfect for garden or Derby parties. Dice a bit of prosciutto & you’re well on your way to something very special. Mini Bacon & Cheddar Party Quiches are another lovely option to present guests. Instead of preparing a traditional pastry crust that requires rolling & cutting the dough, my basic easy-to-make cream cheese pastry dough contains the savory custard & remaining ingredients. Since time can be tight on party day, the quiches can be made several days ahead of time. Simply follow my flawless reheating instructions & plan to enjoy the social hour as well.
