 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
    1      tablespoon    butter or margarine
      1/2  cup           finely chopped red bell pepper
      1/4  cup           chopped green onions -- tops included
    3      large         eggs
    2      tablespoons   milk
    2      ounces        coarsely grated cheddar cheese -- (1/2 cup)
      1/4  teaspoon      salt
      1/8  teaspoon      ground black pepper
 
 Preheat oven to 425° F.  Grease one tray of 24 mini-muffin cups (1 3/4 x 1 inch)
 .  In a small saucepan, melt butter over moderate heat.  Add bell pepper and on
 ion; saute until soft, about 5 minutes.  Remove the pan from the heat and let t
 he mixture cool slightly.
 
 In a medium-size bowl, combine eggs, milk, cheese, salt and pepper.  Stir in th
 e bell pepper and onions.  Spoon about 1 tablespoon of the mixture into each mu
 ffin cup.  (The mixture will fill 18 to 22 cups.)  
 
 Bake until the centers are set, 8 to 10 minutes.  Let the quiches cool for 1 mi
 nute.  Using a knife, loosen the quiches around the edges and remove from the c
 ups.  Arrange them on a platter and serve.

 NOTES : These hors d'oeuvres are quick to prepare, so you have more time with f
 riends.  They're also easier to handle than slices of a large quiche--making th
 em ideal finger food.
