Crustless Quiche Muffins

This easy and delish dish is courtesy of my bud Jessela. This is an easy after work type recipe with only a little chopping involved. I also like how flexible it is; it would be easy to substitute most any of the ingredients for what you happen to have in the fridge.

1 pkg frozen spinach, drained and chopped
6-8 eggs (make sure there is enough to hold all your ingredients together. Adjust to your preference of 'egginess')
1/2 red onion or 1 bunch green onion, chopped
Chopped ham, crumbled bacon or turkey smokie
1/2 tub feta
1 Red pepper, chopped
Handful mushrooms, chopped
S + P to taste [hot sauce or Mrs Dash type seasoning optional]
1 T. butter

Heat oven to 400°F. Sauté onion then add veggies and meat. Season. Sauté a little longer. Add to bowl of drained chopped spinach. Beat eggs with a splash of water then add to bowl. Add crumbled feta, mix well. Scoop mixture into greased tin cups. Cook for 30 minutes until done through.

So yummy. Although Spud has an aversion to spinach he gobbled up half of one serving which impressed me. Next time we'll try doing some of the batch without spinach for him. Perhaps leftover chopped asparagus would work too?

I've adapted a few quiche and frittata recipes this way too. looking like a muffin is an amazing marketing move for toddlers ;)

I've experimented with a few of the recipes I have tried & some freeze ok, making a handy individual serving size snack for later!

All about the marketing. Too true. We will definitely try freezing them. Thanks for the tip!

Thanks for stopping by!! I love these and will definitely make them very soon!!!!!!!!!!!! I just wish my 4 year old would eat them.

Ahhh. Yes. The picky 4 year old palette. What can you do. Perhaps only use yellow veggies so they blend in with the egg colour? Hmmmm. Yellow zucchini, perhaps? My kid would never knowingly eat zucchini but I've been know to be pretty sneaky.
