I made these quiche as part of another make-ahead “All Dorie assignment” dinner I served last week. I know this seems like cheating and that I should be making these recipes one at a time each week. But, my work and social schedules are getting rather hectic now, so in order to actually participate and not skip weeks, I thought it better to get all the recipes done at once. Besides, it gave me a chance to dedicate one whole day to cooking and baking!
With that confession out, I took a page from my previous tart-making experiences and made the tart dough the night before which saved so much time. And, I was less frustrated this time around because I actually had a good amount of marble counter space to successfully roll out the chilled tart dough. No more hand pressing for me!
I stuck with making mini-quiche versions because I refuse to buy one large tart pan when I have six perfectly good small ones. In another bit of defiance, I used regular Gorgonzola instead of hunting for the dolce, which I’m not 100% convinced exists in Chicago since I didn’t see it in my local Trader Joe’s or Fox & Obel. Regardless, these mini quiche were quite tasty, and I can see myself making them again.
