Bite-Size Crustless Quiches by jeanndan

1 tablespoon butter or margarine
1/2 cup finely chopped red bell pepper
1/4 cup chopped green onion (white and green parts)
3 large eggs
2 tablespoons milk
2 ounces Cheddar cheese, coarsely grated (1/2 cup)
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon ground black pepper

Preheat oven to 425F.

Grease mini muffin-pan cups (1 3/4- x 1-inch).

In a small saucepan, melt butter over moderate heat. Add bell pepper and onion; saute until soft, about 5 minutes.

Remove pan from heat and let mixture cool slightly.

In a medium-size bowl, combine eggs, milk, cheese, salt, and pepper. Stir in bell pepper and onions.

Spoon about 1 tablespoon of mixture into each muffin cup. ( The mixture will fill 18 to 22 cups.)

Bake until centers are set, 8 to 10 minutes. Let quiches cool for 1 minute.

Using a knife, loosen quiches around edges and remove from cups. Arrange on a platter and serve.
