Taste test: Frozen mini quiches just right for wedding festivities

Bite-sized quiches are as popular at wedding showers as candy almonds are at receptions. We love the warm tarts and have come to expect them at wedding festivities or cocktail parties this time of year. Nowadays, the familiar, miniature quiches come in a variety of flavors, from lobster to artichoke and olive. We tried four brands of popular flavors including Lorraine, three-cheese and spinach. All were warmed in the oven and ready to serve in minutes.
