A Baby Shower for Omeletta! Mini Quiche Bites

Did you hear the news? Ruthy of Omeletta–one of my friends from First on the First–is having a baby! And today, we’re throwing her a virtual baby shower to share the joy with her!

Mini Quiche Bites

There’s nothing quite like those moments leading up to the birth of your first child. Sure, my “baby” is approaching 9 years old, and her brother isn’t far behind at nearly 7, but I remember. The excitement. The wonder. The complete lack of an appetite for anything other than Saltines. The fatigue that cannot be kept at bay, followed by the mad craze of nesting when you barely sleep at all. Voraciously reading everything possible to somehow get an edge on what will come. And learning, in the end, that no matter how prepared you think you are, your little one has a whole other agenda. It’s exhilarating! It’s exhausting! And it’s all so wonderful.

Mini Quiche Bites

Ruthy is nearing the end of her journey. Soon, she’ll have her baby in her arms, and we couldn’t be happier for her! Best wishes and enjoy every minute! It all goes by so fast!

It isn’t a party without other party goers and food! Hop around the baby shower and grab a bite to eat!

Recipe type: Appetizer
Serves: 24
Ingredients
  • 2 1.6-ounce boxes fillo shells
  • ⅓ cup (about 2 ounces) diced ham steaks
  • ¼ cup shredded Kerrygold Dubliner cheese
  • 2 large cage free eggs
  • ⅓ cup whole milk
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Line a rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper, arrange fillo shells evenly on the baking sheet.
  2. Divide the ham steak up between the fillo shells and sprinkle some shredded cheese over that. Set aside.
  3. In a large bowl, whisk together the eggs and milk until light and frothy, then portion out among the fillo shells, filling each fully (it will settle as it bakes a bit). There may be some left, depending on the size of your shells; feel free to cook it off as scrambled eggs.
  4. Bake for 25-30 minutes, or until lightly browned on the edges and firm in the middle.
  5. Serve warm.

 

What’s one of your fondest memories from when your kiddos were babies?

    I am always so tempted to pick up the frozen tartlet or phyllo shells in the grocery store, this recipe might actually push me over the edge next time!

    1. Carrie @ poet in the pantry

      I keep them on hand–just in case–hoping inspiration will strike. Definitely liked this idea and I’ll be making them again. Go for it!

  2. Ruthy @ Omeletta

    Oh Carrie- I’m so floored by this! And you brought phyllo quiches, which could not have been more perfect. I just bought a box of phyllo pastry the other day and was brainstorming what I could do with it!! Thank you, a jillion times over. This is so sweet and unexpected xx

    1. Carrie @ poet in the pantry

      Yay! Now you have a great use for your phyllo! :) So, so, so happy for you Ruthy! Can’t wait for the arrival of your little one!

    Yum! I love quiche– what a great additional to the virtual baby shower :) I love bite size foods for baby showers!

    1. Carrie @ poet in the pantry

      To me, baby shower=bite-sized food. Must have something to do with the small people they’re celebrating. :)

    These are absolutely stunning, Carrie! The philo dough makes the edges so lovely and delicate–exactly what I think of when I think of baby showers! I also love how simple they are to put together. And really, who doesn’t love quiche? So glad to be a part of this with you! xo

      I feel a bit like a bull in a china shop, but yes, these are the perfect little delicacies for welcoming a baby. And so easy! Glad to have baked along with you!

    Ooh Dubliner my favorite! I need to make a quiche with that, I bet it tasted as good as these little guys look!

    Irish cheese unite! Love these baby quiche bites, especially since you can change the filling and make them pretty versatile.

    1. Carrie @ poet in the pantry

      Yay for Irish cheese! That is definitely the greatest part about mini quiche–the filling is so versatile.
