My daughter has asked for mini quiches for breakfast, and she also had a lunch at school that was like a biscuit roll-up--it sounded like store-bought biscuit dough, shredded chicken and cheese. She asked me to make these things--are they the sorts of things that I could do in batches? How long would the mini quiches and chicken/biscuit combos last in the fridge do you think? Could they freeze? Thanks!

So I asked my dh the food scientist ;-). Mini (cooked) quiches in the fridge around a week. Freezer, absolutely but try to get the air out.
The shredded chicken sandwiches - in the fridge for about 2 days. Freezer for longer but it will be really important to get the air out. He said the biggest issue is that since the chicken is shredded there is a lot of surface area for bacteria to take a hold of. Also in the freezer the extra surface area will breed freezer burn so getting the air out is key.

Yeah - some days cooking is fun in my house!

We freeze quiche all the time. It changes the texture slightly but still tastes fine and the texture is ok. It probably depends what you put in it too. Fewer veggies will probably keep the texture more stable.
