Swiss Cheese Appetizer Tarts

Swiss Cheese Appetizer Tarts

These quiche-like appetizers, loaded with spinach, bacon and Swiss cheese, not only taste great, but are easy to make because they use refrigerated pie crusts. Recipe from the Crisco® Collection; Campbell's Kitchen.

  • Yield: 24 servings
  • Prep time:25 Minutes
  • Cook time:15 Minutes
  • Stand:15 Minutes
  • Cool:10 Minutes


  • 1 package(s) (about 14 ounces) refrigerated pie crusts, at room temperature
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 1/2 cup(s) sour cream
  • 3/4 teaspoon(s) prepared mustard
  • 1/8 teaspoon(s) ground nutmeg

  • 3 tablespoon(s) finely chopped onions
  • 2 tablespoon(s) thawed and well drained frozen chopped spinach
  • 2 tablespoon(s) crisp-cooked bacon, finely chopped


• Heat the oven to 400ºF.

• Place 1 pie crust on a lightly floured surface. Roll the pie crust to 1/8-inch-thick. Cut the crust into 12 (2 3/4-inch) circles with a cutter. Repeat with the remaining pie crust, making 24 circles in all. Press the pastry circles into 24 (2 1/2-inch) muffin-pan cups.

• Beat the eggs, sour cream, mustard, nutmeg and red pepper in a medium bowl with a fork or whisk. Stir in the cheese, onion, spinach and bacon. Spoon about 1 tablespoon filling into each muffin-pan cup. Sprinkle with additional nutmeg, if desired.

• Bake for 15 minutes or until the tarts are golden brown. Let the tarts cool in the pans on wire racks for 10 minutes.
