Happy Easter!

Miniature quiche cups are the perfect party appetizer because they make great finger food – and with all those eggs lying around, you’ll get points for deliciousness and ingenuity!

Whip up these mini spinach quiche cups in minutes using your Magic Bullet blender and pre-baked phyllo cups that you can find in the freezer section of most grocery stores. Pre-baked phyllo cups are the perfect quiche crust because you don’t have to worry about it getting soggy! You can use fresh spinach or thawed frozen chopped cooked spinach if you want to skip a step in the recipe below.

A general rule for serving these mini phyllo quiche cups is to make enough to have four quiche cups per person. They are really addicting and will be gone within seconds of putting them out on the appetizer table!
