  1. Tamar, these look so delicious and so satisfying and best yet . . . they won’t make me so lethargic because it’s matzah-free :) These are definitely happening this Pesach

  2. I made them this morning. I couldnt find Temp Tee (tried 3 stores) so I substituted J & J Calorie Reduce Whipped Cream Cheese. It was very salty and I didnt even use the full amount in the recipe since I had already salted the vegetables. Also very hard to get out of the greased muffin tins. Any suggestions – these looked so appetizing and I really want them to work??? Rosette

    • You might have to let them cool a bit before taking them out of the muffin tins, but I didn’t wait long for mine, I just used a knife to scrape around the outside and then popped them out. You could always make them in ramekins and keep them inside. I always suggest salting to taste, so you can reduce that amount of course and using a different cream cheese could definitely affect the saltiness.

  3. This is just perfect for our dairy-loving family. Great idea for a vegetarian dinner anytime.

    How about putting them in a muffin tin lined w/foil cupcake cups. You can buy them in any supermarket. Remove the paper before using.

    These sound wonderful. Is there a veggie I could substitute for the asparagus (trouble checking them)? I’d like to make them in cupcake cups to take on a family picnic to Gan Sacher in Jerusalem!

    • This is a very versatile recipe, any veggie would work, whatever you like most, maybe try zucchini for easy checking.

    Hello Tamar,
    These mini quiches look delicious. I was wondering if it could be made in a pan instead of muffin tins. Would you suggest a 9 inch pan? Would I need to change the oven temperature and time?

    • Hi Rhonda, it should work well in a 9 inch round pan, if it is too much you can just use the extra as an omelet in a pan, don’t want anything to go to waste. I think the oven temp should stay the same, it would just need longer cooking, play that by ear.

    Do you use fresh parmesan cheese or the kind that comes in a shaker? How about Swiss cheese instead?
