Mini Brie and Apple Quiches

Mini Brie and Apple Quiches

We were getting ready for the Oscars and decided that we needed some fancy appetizers.  I found this great recipe on Eating Well for Mini Brie & Apple Quiches and played with it a bit. I loved the way this turned out and we will definitely make these the next time we are entertaining.  This is the first time I used mini phyllo shells - it was really a nice treat - and super easy.

The fact that the recipe comes from Eating Well give me confidence that it is really not that bad for you.  And it is a nice and unexpected treat that we can serve company when we entertain.  It tasted great, was not a ton of work and much better for you than the frozen ones.  This will be an Oscar night regular!


15 Mini phyllo shells (one 1.9-ounce packages)
1/3 medium apple, peeled and finely diced
1 large egg
1 large egg white
2 tsp Dijon mustard
1/4 tsp Kosher salt
1/4 tsp Black pepper
1/4 tsp Paprika
2 oz Brie (1/4 small wheel), cut into 15 squares


1. Preheat oven to 350°F.
2. Arrange phyllo shells on a large parchment-lined baking sheet. Divide apple among the shells.
3. Whisk egg, egg white, Dijon mustard, Kosher salt, black pepper and paprika in a bowl. Pour small amounts of the egg mixture over the apple (do not overfill the shells). Place a Brie square in each shell.
4. Bake for around 15 minutes.  The egg should be set, the brie will be melted and the phyllo will start to brown on the edges.  Let cool slightly before serving.
