Hash Brown Quiche Cups

Quiche cups are my showstopper potluck dish. Hash browns and Asiago cheese make up the crusts. Eggs, spinach and bacon do the rest. —Nicole Stone, Gilbertville, Iowa

    Can these be made in the mini size muffin tins? The direction state to grease 8 muffin cups, but the nutritional info states 2 mini size. Can anyone determine which pan is to be use. I think the mini's would be great for a breakfast buffet.

    Do you think these could be made adding fresh shredded potato instead of the frozen hash browns? I always have plenty of potatoes around and not the frozen hash browns! ?????

    We made these for our mother's brunch. We doubled the recipe and they still disappeared. It was nice to use fresh chives from the garden. My husband and I were thinking they could have used more egg mixture in each cup. I even made some vegetarian with morningstar tofu bacon.
