Quick Breakfast: Healthy Muffin Pan Quiche

For the past few years, I have been making numerous variations of muffin pan quiches. It originated from Eating Well’s Mini Mushroom and Sausage Quiche recipe (which was featured in the Holiday Challenge), but I found that I started throwing in my own vegetable combinations and more often than not opted for a vegetarian option (trying to avoid processed meats as much as possible). It even got to the point of no longer following a recipe, just throwing together a combo of egg whites and whole eggs, a little milk, and then any and all vegetables I had on hand until the muffin cups were full. muffin pan eggWhen friends or family would ask for the recipe, the only one I had written down was the mushroom and sausage version. SO, I decided to jot down my favorite combo and share it with you all!

These mini muffin pan quiches could not be easier. Make a large batch on Sunday and use for the week. They are also easy to freeze and save for later – just wrap each up in saran wrap, place in a freezer bag, and call it a day. When you’re ready to enjoy, just unwrap and microwave until warmed through. This is my go-to breakfast when company comes to town or when someone has a baby (or illness, or death in the family) and needs a healthy and easy breakfast. Play around with the recipe and make it your own!

    What is the serving size? The entire 5 eggs and 3 egg whites? Four (4), as shown in the photo?
    Do you have calorie count range (or possibly Nutrition Facts) per serving size?

      Great question – 12 muffin tin pan. We fill each slot about 3/4 full so you might even be able to make an extra batch depending on your muffin tin size. 🙂

      Great question Vickie! We just added the nutrition information. We typically eat two in the morning, unless you are not much of a breakfast person then 1 would be enough.
