Author Notes: These mini quiches are always a big hit at every summer bbq, fall tailgate party or any day!. Caramelized onion and bacon are a great combo paired with crisp golden crust. These are a great make ahead of time too - just reheat them in the oven and serve. They're great served warm or at room temp.Sandra Dombek
