Breakfast in our home is a pretty big deal.  My goal is to get fruit and vegetables in to every single meal we eat – even breakfast.  That means that we generally either have smoothies made with fruit or scrambled eggs with vegetables.  The problem is that standing in the kitchen chopping up vegetables is not how I love to start my day.  So a few years ago I started making mini-crustless quiche for a quick and healthy breakfast.

These little quiche are so easy to make – and they re-heat beautifully.  All you really need are some eggs to make the quiche.  Then add your favorite seasonal vegetables, bacon or sausage and even cheese.  The sky is the limit when making quiche.

It’s vital to make sure that your muffin pan is greased well so that the quiche pop right out when they are done.  For this batch I tested PAM’s coconut oil spray.  I’m very picky about the oils that I use when cooking and I was pleased to discover that PAM now has a coconut oil option.  But I still had my doubts that it would do the job to get my quiche out in one piece.

I made sure to spray the muffin tins very, very well.  I wanted mini crustless quiche, not scrambled eggs, after all.

I made the quiche and baked and waited.  I let the quiche cool for just a few minutes after they came out of the oven and then turned the pan upside down to see what would happen.

Voila! Not one single quiche stuck to the pan.  I was thrilled!  I was so impressed that I actually used the PAM Coconut Oil spray to bake my daughter’s birthday cake a few days later with the same gorgeous results.  The cakes popped right out of the pans.

      About a handful of cheese, depending on the kind. I used less if it was Parmesan or a stronger cheese. Cook the spinach down and wring out the water, first. I would go light on spinach because it’s so wet, maybe 1/4 cup or just a little over.

      Also, I used the “Texas” sized muffin pan when I made this batch, and they did not re-warm as well. They were quite soggy. So I’d stick with either normal size muffins or minis!

        Sorry it took me so long to reply again. I made these and they were awesome. My daughter and I devoured these and they never saw a freezer. I renamed them good luck egg cups (they were green with spinach) and they were a huge hit. We rename everything around here to make them sound more appetizing to kids. Tonight they had onion, cheddar, bacon, and spinach. We tried them out on my son, the pickiest of the children. He was not won over, but said he ate it anyway so he could have good luck! Ha, at least the mama won the gettng-some-green-in-the-gut battle for tonight even if he didn’t love it. Looks like me the the girls are going to have an awesome breakfast! Thank you again for the recipe.

          YUM! Onion, cheddar, bacon and spinach sounds delicious! I’m glad they worked well for you. I may have to make that combo this week.
