Try this pop-in-your mouth deLISH, Gluten Free Mini Quiche Recipe that substitutes whole milk for heavy cream (to help watch your waistline).

½ container Pillsbury® Gluten Free refrigerated pie and pastry dough
½ cup milk
1/3 cup grated Parmesan cheese
½ tsp. garlic salt
¼ tsp. fresh ground pepper
Pinch of ground nutmeg
1 box (9 oz.) frozen chopped spinach, thawed, squeezed to drain
3 T. chopped green onions (3 medium)
1. Heat oven to 425°F. Knead dough until softened and no longer crumbly. Press 1 rounded teaspoonful of dough in bottom and along the up side of each ungreased mini muffin cup, extending dough about 1/4 inch above the edge of the cup.
2. In a medium bowl, beat eggs. Stir in milk, cheese, garlic salt, ground nutmeg and pepper. Stir in drained spinach and green onions. Spoon about 1 tablespoonful of mixture into each crust-lined cup.
3. Bake 16 to 18 minutes or until puffed and golden brown. Cool 5 minutes before carefully removing from pan to cooling rack. Serve warm or cool. Store covered in refrigerator for up to 5 days.
