My mom got me a heart-shaped muffin tin for Valentine's Day. I decided to make heart-shaped mini quiches for Jim and Hilary (she was visiting for the weekend) this morning. They turned out pretty well, but I will make a few changes the next time I make them. Here's my amended recipe.

Heart-Shaped Mini Quiches

4 eggs, lightly beaten
¼ cup milk
¼ tsp salt
½ cup shredde cheese
½ cup frozen spinach, thawed and drained
2-4 slices deli ham, depending on size

Preheat oven to 350°. Spray a heart-shaped muffin tin with cooking spray. Combine eggs, milk, salt, cheese, and spinach. Cut heart shapes out of the ham slices, the same size as the wells in the muffin tin. Lay a ham heart in each of the wells. If desired, finely dice remnants and add to egg mixture. Pour egg mixture into muffin tin, filling only about halfway full.

Bake about 15 minutes, or until set in the middle.

Makes 6 mini quiches.

Now I had intended to flip them over when they came out of the oven and serve them upside down. I thought it would look neat with the pink ham heart on top. However, some of the egg seeped underneath the ham, so it wasn't as pretty as I thought it would be.

Pink ham hearts.

Going into the oven. These ended up being overfilled. They really poof up when they bake and as a result, some of the egg ran out onto the top of the tin. I made too much filling. I started out with six eggs, and it made six of these overfilled ones and two halfway filled ones. So I think next time I will only do four eggs.

Happy Valentine's Day!
