Butternut Mini Quiches

Hello everybody!

I’m sharing another seasonal recipe this week which is super easy to make and delicious! I had a party at home for Halloween and I wanted to make something that would go well with the theme and I thought what is better than something orange like a pumpkin?

These mini quiches are made with butternut and cheddar which gives them a nice orange color and I think it’s also a great appetizer idea for the season.

I think that these make a perfect appetizer because they are simple and quick to make, but I also love to eat them for dinner with a soup or salad. You can make your own crust for the quiche, which is what I usually do, but this time I was lazy and used ready made tart shells which did the trick.

So your job is just to fill them up! If you’re not a big fan of sweet breakfast, then these would be perfect for you as well!

Let’s start baking!


  • 6 eggs
  • 200 ml milk
  • 250 g butternut purée
  • 1 onion
  • 150 g shredded cheddar
  • 30 tart shells
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 pinch nutmeg
  • Salt & pepper


1- Preheat the oven at 355 F. In a mixing bowl, whisk the eggs and the milk together until homogeneous.

2- Add in the butternut purée and mix well. In a frying pan, heat up a teaspoon of olive oil. Dice the onion thinly and add it in the frying pan. Cook on low-medium heat until it’s caramelized.

3- Add the shredded cheddar and caramelized onion in the bowl and mix well. Season with nutmeg and salt and pepper to taste and mix.

4- Line up the tart shells on a baking sheet and fill them with the preparation. Bake for 20-30 min. Let them cool down and enjoy!

These mini quiches are perfect for the season and will make a great appetizer for your next party! They are super easy to make & delicious!
