green bean casserole quiche bitesWith the holidays fast approaching I wanted to dedicate a post to these awesome green bean casserole quiche bites. I made them for the family holiday appetizer party I hosted a couple weeks ago and they were a big hit.

They have all the flavor of the favorite holiday casserole but in mini form. I love the texture of the creamy filling topped with the crunchy fried onions. And by using store-bought pie crust this is a really easy appetizer to whip together.

They are pretty, delicious (I’m partial to mini quiche, I just love them) and can be served at room temperature. These are a new favorite appetizer of mine for serving around the holidays.

1/2 teaspoon Ground Black Pepper
1/4 teaspoon Garlic Powder
1/4 teaspoon Onion Powder

16 ounces Extra Fine Green Beans, cut into 1-inch pieces (I used frozen and thawed before adding)
1 package Pie Crust
1 cup French Fried Onions
Directions
  1. Preheat oven to 400°.
  2. In a medium bowl, whisk together the soup, cream, eggs, black pepper, garlic powder, onion powder and nutmeg. Add green beans, stir until combined.
  3. Take pie crust out of package, roll with rolling pin to 1/8″ thickness.
  4. Cut out mini pie crusts using a 3-inch round cutter. Repeat and re-roll pie crust to maximize dough.
  5. Lightly press each mini pie crust into a muffin pan. Fill each pie crust with 2 tablespoons of filling.
  6. Bake 10 minutes, remove from oven and top with onions. Return to oven for 10 minutes or until golden brown.
