I was in need of something healthy, quick, and packed with protein when I came up with these little quiches. My trainer is always saying protein, protein, protein after a workout and knew my regular bag of dried cereal and yogurt in the morning just wasn’t cutting it in the protein dept. After my morning workouts, I am starving! I eat two of these along with oatmeal and a small yogurt and I’m finally feeling full and satisfied after this hearty breakfast.
- 8 eggs lightly beaten
- ¼ cup milk
- ¾ cup shredded cheese
- ~ 1 tsp salt/pepper
- Meat of choice. I used 9 oz precooked pork sausage. turkey sausage available too.
- Veggies: you pick! Spinach, chopped onion, green onion, bell pepper, sundried tomatoes, etc.
- Preheat oven to 350. In a large bowl, mix together eggs, milk, cheese, salt/pepper. Set aside. Heat butter or olive oil in a skillet and sauté veggies until tender. Combine veggies and sausage with egg mixture.
- Spray muffin pan to prevent sticking. Evenly distribute mixture into muffin pan. Bake for about 20-30 minutes until eggs are set.
*Tip: Use butter knife to pop the quiches out of the muffin pan as they’re cooling.
