Ground beef snack quiches my husband, Cory, farms, so supper can sometimes be quite late. Hearty appetizers, like these meaty mini quiches, are a perfect way to start meals. From Stacy Atkinson of Rugby North Dakota.
1/4 pound ground beef
1/8 to 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
1/8 teaspoon pepper
1 cup biscuit/baking mix
1/4 cup cornmeal
1/4 cup cold butter
2 to 3 tablespoons boiling water
1/2 cup half-and-half cream
1 tablespoon chopped green onion
1 tablespoon chopped sweet red pepper
1/8 to 1/4 teaspoon salt
1/8 to 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1/2 cup finely shredded cheddar cheese
In a saucepan over medium heat, cook beef, garlic powder and pepper until meat is no longer pink; drain and set aside.
In a bowl, combine the biscuit mix and cornmeal; cut in butter. Add enough water to form a soft dough.
Press onto the bottom and up the sides of greased miniature muffin cups. Place teaspoonfuls of beef mixture into each shell.
In a bowl, combine the egg, cream, onion, red pepper, salt and cayenne; pour over beef mixture. Sprinkle with cheese.
Bake at 375° for 20 minutes or until a knife inserted near the center comes out clean. Yield: 1-1/2 dozen.
