I prepared this recipe specially for my participation in one of the spring issues of the first Bulgarian online blog magazine SOintoFOOD. I had the honor to be invited to participate with three recipes, which I prepared with a lot of love and inspiration.
For the occasion made a version of my favourite recipes for zucchini quiche that I make pretty often… I love cheese and eggs and the quiche is the just the dish to use the leftover vegetables and sausages (for the meat eaters) in your fridge to make it. Simply add some eggs, cheese and cream and you’ll end up with delightful filling and buttery dough that’s super delicious is also so easy to make.
These mini quiches were made with grated zucchini and cheese; you can use different kinds of cheese for more interesting taste. I used a muffin tin for baking them and ended up with 12 pieces. They are really great as treats for the office, a friends gathering or to enjoy by yourself :).
