Makes 12 standard muffin-sized quiches. Total time approx. 25 - 30 minutes from start to enjoy!
There is nothing better than convenient, healthy, and satisfying food sitting right there in your fridge waiting to be eaten and these quiches are just that. They are SO simple to make, they are heart-healthy and best of all, they are delicious.
As is the case with many of my recipes, I am providing a base. A place to start from. Egg-bakes, quiches, and frittatas, in particular, are very versatile so be creative and use the ingredients you love best. Turkey or bacon instead of ham... bell peppers instead of tomatoes... the world is your oyster!
10 - 12 large eggs (just depending on how much "dry" ingredient you add)
2 tbsp milk (another option: unsweet almond or unsweet oat milk)
1 smaller tomato
1 cup spinach
3 or 4 slices of deli ham
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper
1 cup of cheddar cheese (another option: goat cheese)
Preheat your oven to 350°.
In a medium sized bowl, crack in all of the eggs, add milk, salt, pepper, and whisk. Set aside.
Dice up tomatoes, spinach, and ham.
Shred your cheese.
Spray a 12 cup muffin tin generously with baking spray.
Sprinkle in all of your "dry" ingredients first into the muffin tin.
Carefully pour your egg mixture over the dry ingredients into each individual tin.
Lightly stir around the contents of each muffin tin, then put it into a preheated oven.
Bake for 12-15 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean from the center.
Pull out and let cool. You will need to scrape the edges of each tin with a sharp knife before taking them out of the muffin tin.
These stay delicious in your fridge for 4-5 days or freeze some and pull them out as desired.
And that does it! As you can see, these quiches are just the thing for those of you who are meal prepping, are generally short on time, or for a sick family member or friend. These little babies pack up and travel perfectly. Never underestimate the healing powers of clean and simple, convenient food to heal a sick body, a broken heart, or a troubled mind.
Until next time...
