Crustless Quiche Cups (WIAW)

Good morning friends!  A quick recipe to share with you as part of my “What I Ate Wednesday”.  Want to join the party?  Link up over at Peas and Crayons!

I wanted a break from oatmeal for breakfast this week, but typically don’t have time to make eggs in the morning before leaving for work – enter portable, re-heatable crustless quiches!

You can pretty much throw together any combination of eggs, cheese, and veggies to make these work!

I used:

  • 2 whole eggs + 4 egg whites
  • 1 cup spinach, sauteed
  • 1/2 cup orange bell pepper, chopped & sauteed
  • 1/2 cup onion, chopped & sauteed
  • 1/4 cup milk (I used almond)
  • 1/4 cup feta cheese
  • Pre-heat oven to 350.
  1. Lightly beat eggs, egg whites, and milk until combined.
  2. Spray muffin tins with cooking spray (generously!)
  3. Divide cooked vegetables among 6 muffins tins.
  4. Pour egg mixture on top of vegetables, filling 3/4 way full.
  5. Top each with about 1.5-2 tsp cheese.
  6. Bake for 20-25 minutes, until centers are set.  Allow to cool in tins before removing.

Makes 6 crustless quiche cups.  Approximate nutrition per cup: 55 calories, 3 grams fat, 5 grams protein.

Breakfast:

6:30 am, after the gym: banana with peanut butter

8:30 am, at work: 2 crustless egg cups

Lunch, 12:30 pm, at work:

Veggie “taco salad” – crumbled veggie burger, homemade salsa, 1/4 of an avocado.  Ugly?  Yes.  Delicious?  Most definitely.

Snackage, 2:30 pm:

My favorite hummus and baby carrots.

More snacks, 4pm:

Greek yogurt and blueberries!

Dinner, 6:45 pm:

Trader Joe’s sushi – thanks to my husband!  Also some unpictured edamame.  Leftovers for lunch today, yay!

I have a huge box of Costco blueberries at home – I’ve been eating them in yogurt and oats, but need some good blueberry recipes (preferably healthy).  What’s your favorite use for blueberries?

    Those crustless quiches look awesome! I make something similar I call “eggfins.” they are great to make on Sunday and have in the fridge for a quick re-heat breakfast throughout the week.

    My favorite way to eat blueberries is hot hot oatmeal because I love how juicy they get! Other wise… I really like them in grain salads too. I did one with blueberries and cilantro a while back that was awesome.

    I eat blueberries with cottage cheese or greek yogurt almost every day, def my fave use for them! I adore roasted garlic hummus, I buy the Cedar’s brand. Never tried TJ’s brand, but have had their horseradish hummus, YUM. Those mini egg quiches are so cute, I have totally made those before, got the idea from The Chic Life (Diana). You know what makes them really good – if you squirt in some spicy brown mustard. Yup, it works! Reminds me of deviled eggs!

    Freeze a cup of them and a banana (sliced). Put them in the food processor until it has a sorbet consistency. Easy and healthy!

    I love making mini quiches/frittatas and freezing them for quick grab-n-go meals! My favorite combination is spinach, parmesan and cottage cheese. Maybe I’ll try mixing up the ingredients next time. 🙂

    I really enjoy blueberries in pancakes and muffins, however nothing beats fresh blueberry pie!
