Bacon Apple Brie Bites

You can make this as an appetizer, chock fill of bacon, apple, and brie, or as a popover-like side dish.  I intended the recipe to come out as a mini quiche, but with the addition of the flour, it became a popover.  Light and airy, the bites were just the right size to “pop” in your mouth, and the brie was a nice surprise in the middle of them.  These are a prefect snack for Sunday football!

  • 1 Apple, Peeled and Chopped
  • 1/3 c. Onion, Finely Chopped
  • 1 Tbsp. Butter
  • 1/2 lb. Bacon
  • 5 Eggs
  • 1/4 c. Heavy Cream
  • 1 Tbsp. Flour
  • 1/8 tsp. Salt
  • A few sprinkles of Black Pepper
  • 1/8 tsp Fresh Chives, Finely chopped
  • Brie

Peel and finely chop the apple and onion.

Put the butter in a small saute pan, and saute the apple and onion on medium-low until opaque (the onion), approximately 2-3 minutes, then remove from the heat.

Fry the bacon in a fry pan until crisp, or you can cook your bacon like I do-on a baking sheet, in the oven at 375 for approximately 5-7 minutes, until crisp.  When the bacon is cool, break into tiny pieces.  Lower the oven temperature to 350 degrees.  Whisk the eggs, cream, and flour together in a bowl.

Add the salt,  pepper, and chives to the eggs.  Mix the apple/onion and bacon into the egg mixture.  Grease a mini-muffin pan.  Peel the rind off the brie and cut into small bite-size pieces.  Place a piece of brie in the middle of each muffin cups.

Using a ladle, spoon the egg mixture into each muffin cups, filling each spot about 2/3 of the way full.

Place the muffin pan in the oven and bake 18-22 minutes, until brown.  You can serve immediately, or store in a container in the refrigerator, and reheat for 5-7 minutes before serving.

Note:  These are addictive, so maybe make a double batch, so you actually get to have some before your family eats them all up!
