    Quiche is one of the most versatile dishes.  It is acceptable to eat any time of the day and is great hot or at room temperature. 

These mini ham and cheese quiche take the versatility to the next level and make serving a breeze. You can make them ahead for a quick breakfast on a busy morning or serve them to a crowd at a brunch, either way they will be a great addition to your menu!

    I have had the best time coming up with fun recipes to make for our Easter get together.  It is one of my favorite parties to host.

I have had the best time coming up with fun recipes to make for our Easter get together.  It is one of my favorite parties to host.

I love having all of our local family and friends over for an egg hunt and lots of food!  We do it the day before Easter and then we take it easy and feast on leftovers on Easter itself.

     It is nice to have a holiday where everyone comes to us.  We always enjoy seeing everyone on the other holidays, but it takes a lot of coordination and hopping from one place to the next.     

Plus I love to feed people, so it gives me a great excuse to pull out all of the stops and make a bunch of fun.  It’s a total win all the way around!

Last year we had an afternoon open house.  We had plenty of great snacks and sweets.

    The Easter egg hunt was a blast and there were plenty of games of bags.  This year I thought it would be fun to throw a brunch open house.

    Brunch lends itself to so many delicious foods that also work great for an open house.  Plus, Easter and brunch just go together.

    The trick is making food that can be set out and people can graze without me having to do much more than replenish if needed.  I want to have fun at the party and not work the party.

 It can be hard to balance to the food I want to do with what is practical.  But with a little planning, it is usually possible to pull of something that at least comes close to what I had in mind.

These quiche lend themselves nicely as there is no cutting and serving needed.  Plus quiche is as good at room temperature as it is hot.  

The wonton wrappers are a lot easier to work with than to do a large number of pastry rounds. The texture isn’t quite as good as pie crust, but the convenience is worth it. 

Plus they are lower in calories at around 100 calories a piece. You can even make them the day ahead of time and warm them in the oven just before serving.

Place them on a cooling rack over a baking sheet in order to crisp up the bottom a bit.  Our tester batch was well received, even if Little Dude just scooped the eggs out of his!

More great ham, egg and cheese brunch options:

Ham, egg and cheese breakfast hand pies are another fun option.  The puff pastry wrapper is flaky and delicious and the filling is quick to put together.

Cheesy ham and asparagus frittata is a great way to turn leftover ham into a whole new meal.  There is a small secret ingredient in the mix that I think takes it to the next level of goodness!

Ham, egg and cheese breakfast sliders are fun miniature breakfast sandwiches.  They are always a hit for breakfast, brunch or dinner!

I made 72 of them for our Easter party. Half like this and half a spinach version and we mowed through most of them. They were a perfect item to make the day before and reheat for the buffet. I just put them on a cooling rack over a baking sheet so the bottoms wouldn't get soggy and put them in the oven for a few minutes. For a while I was constantly putting fresh hot ones out because the trays were emptying so fast (and I couldn't have been happier doing it!)

Yummy! And I adore the idea of the wonton wrapper for the crust. Thanks for sharing on Creative K. Kids Tasty Tuesdays. I hope you will join us again next week.

The wonton wrappers are so much easier than making that many little circles of crust. I made 72 mini quiche for Easter and that would have taken forever if I was rolling dough! Thanks so much for hosting!
