Individual quiches are terrific for so many reasons – they’re easy to make, look lovely when served, are ideal for serving a crowd and can also be frozen, making mini quiches convenient to grab and heat up for a quick, on-the-go breakfast or snack. We think you’ll find this green chile quiche recipe especially tasty, with a delicious combination of corn, green chiles, fresh chives, Cabot Cottage Cheese, Cabot New York Extra Sharp Cheddar and Cabot Pepper Jack. Just be warned that this recipe only makes 12 servings and, since we’re guessing these mini quiches will disappear quickly, you may want to make a double or triple batch! Share the recipe with friends and family on Facebook, Pinterest, Instagram, and Twitter while you’re at it.
Preheat oven to 400°F. Combine the eggs and half & half in a medium bowl or a large measuring cup. Stir in thawed yellow corn kernels, diced green chiles, chopped chives and Cabot Cottage Cheese. Add the flour, baking powder, salt and pepper, stirring well with a wire whisk.
Spray each tin of a 12-cup muffin pan with cooking spray. Evenly divide the shredded Cabot New York Extra Sharp Cheddar and Cabot Pepper Jack between the muffin tins. Pour the egg mixture over the shredded cheese, dividing evenly among all 12 muffin tins. Mixture should fill each tin almost to the top.
Bake at 400°F for 15 minutes. Reduce heat to 350°F and bake for an additional 20-23 minutes, or until quiches are puffed and golden. Allow to cool slightly and serve warm.
Note: If you’re not serving a crowd and have extra mini-quiches left over, the good news is that they freeze nicely! Freeze on a baking sheet and transfer to a zip-top freezer bag. Reheat in a warm oven or pop in a microwave.

These are wonderful little bites of heaven. I bake mine in a mini muffin pan. Great party/finger food. Everyone asks me to make these for pot luck!
These were delicious, a hint of the green chiles balances the corn. They were so creamy and I loved them.. they made exactly 12 regular sized egg muffins..So yummy!! Thanks
I used low fat cottage cheese and fat free half and half–cardiologist compromises so I can use the GOOD cheese–and they were AWESOME. Delighted to have a stash in the freezer!!!
