Tortilla Crusted Tomato Bacon Cheddar Quiche by Angela RobertsIf you fear making pie crust, but love quiche, you’re in luck. These delightful tomato bacon mini quiches are made with flour tortillas.

On a whim I lightly cooked raw tortillas from TortillaLand and placed each in a tart pan for quiche. I was quite surprised at how great it baked in the oven and. Easy, and tasty, I had quiche in twenty minutes. You can used other tortillas for this recipe, but I haven’t tested those.

The Creative Cooking Crew challenged us this month with the tomato. This tomato bacon quiche will serve as my second entry, as I already submitted a fresh tomato bisque soup. This is truly a creative recipe, because it’s taking a very common ingredient (the tortilla) and using it an unconventional way. It puffed up during baking, and it saves quite a few calories in the process, not using typical pie crust. Even using heavy cream, bacon and cheese, each individual quiche comes in at around 300 calories.

This is a keeper recipe for the holidays. If you use small tart pans, you can vary your ingredients to your guests taste or just get wildly creative with leftovers.

I used two types of tomatoes from my garden (red and yellow), but you can use anything. Feel free to add in your own take on herbs and spices.

  1. Angela, what a fabu idea to use tortillas for the crust! I wonder if corn would work too? Love both the quiche AND the bisque, for some reason I never think to make home made tomato soup but yours looks so comforting, I should just give it a try! Good job on the two-fer!

  2. What a brilliant idea Angela! I love little quiches like this but yes making pastry is not always on top of my ‘ I want to do that now’ list. And this sounds and looks great. Now I just have to find raw tortilla…:)

  3. How interesting! I’d never have thought to use tortillas as the crust! This looks like a great recipe to have on hand for those last-minute dinners during the week especially!
