Ham & Spinach Quiche Cups

ham and spinach individual quiches

These low-carb, low-calorie muffin-size quiches make a great grab-and-go breakfast. They are a nice alternative to basic scrambled eggs in the morning and can be made ahead and frozen. Simply take a few out of the freezer the night before and pop them in the microwave for a fast hot breakfast! I also like them cold as a snack.

Prep Time: 20 minutes, plus 25-30 baking (45-50 total)
Yield: 15-18 quiches

Ingredients:

1 package frozen chopped spinach

1 package (6 oz) Canadian Bacon

1 tsp olive oil

1/4 small onion, chopped

1 bell pepper, chopped

12 eggs, beaten

1 1/2 cups shredded low-fat cheese

1/2 tsp salt

1/2 tsp pepper (or less)

Directions:

  1. Line muffin tins with foil baking cups or spray with non-stick cooking spray.
  2. Defrost and drain spinach according to package directions.
  3. Heat the olive oil in a small skillet over medium heat. Add onion and bell pepper. Cook until tender.
  4. Chop Canadian bacon into small pieces.
  5. In a large bowl crack eggs and beat well with a wire whisk.
  6. Add drained spinach, Canadian bacon, onions, peppers, cheese, salt and pepper. Mix well.
  7. Bake at 350°F for 35-30 minutes or until knife inserted in center of quiche comes out clean.
  8. Refrigerate or freeze after cooking.
