Plate full mini quicheThese tasty little treats got rave reviews from not only my gluten-free loved-ones, but from others as well. A potato crust with a creamy egg filling form the basis. Bacon, onion and cheddar cheese combine with the basis to bring a familiar flavor while artichokes, sun-dried tomatoes with Swiss and Gruyere cheese blend savory and delicate flavors together.
