It's All In The Egg Muffin Quiche

Simplest, most versatile, perfect-for-later recipe *ever*!!!

It starts in a standard muffin pan - and ends with YUM.

This recipe hooked me on Facebook when I first saw it. But, me being me, I tweaked it, modified it ever so slightly, and measured out the ingredients to make it easier for you. It's a great one to use up whatever you have on hand - the only ingredient *required* is eggs. And you can serve it for any meal - or even as snacks in between when you're on the go.


So - grab that muffin pan and give this on a shot. Your tummy will thank you!!

Egg Muffin Quiche

For one dozen muffin quiches:

10 eggs
2/3 cup milk
1-1/2 cups of RAW vegetables of your choice (any combo of broccoli, carrots, cauliflower, peppers. Be sure to dry with a paper towel after washing to remove any water)
1 cup chopped or crumbled cooked  meat (any combo of sausage, turkey, chicken, roast beef, salmon)
3 slices or 1/2 cup cheese (any variety - your choice)
salt and pepper to taste

Thoroughly spray your muffin pan with your choice of non-stick spray. I used extra-light olive oil. Then evenly distribute your vegetables and meat among each cup. Set aside.

In a mixing bowl, combine eggs, milk, and seasonings (a touch of cajun, maybe some chives).  Pour directly into each cup - up to 3/4 full. Top with 1/4 of a slice of cheese. Slip into oven (no need to preheat) at 425 for 20 minutes or until each muffin quiche is just golden.

Helpful hint - let these cool to nearly room temperature, then run a knife around the edge, before removing from pan and placing on a platter.

These were tasty warm that day, tasty cold later that day, and tasty when reheated in the microwave that evening. I'm betting they'll keep a couple days in the refrigerator without an issue. Ours didn't last that long. . . we ate them within a day!

I made mine with some leftover smoked turkey lunch meat, broccoli, shredded carrots, and pepper jack cheese slices. Was definitely a plus to be able to grab one to eat as I headed out the door to do some gardening - no fork necessary!!

Have a quiche-y kind of day -
