This is one of my most favourite breakfast recipes! Why? They are so easy to make, so delicious, and so impressive to those you are serving it to. You will not be disappointed with this savory selection.
These mini quiches can be made with whatever ingredients you’d like. If you’re vegetarian, throw in some mushrooms, peppers, and onions. If you’re not a vegetarian, throw in all of the above plus some pancetta or bacon bits! Since we are not vegetarians, I opted for the pancetta option, along with the mixed veggies. I also added some spinach and tomatoes and then the necessary cheese. The best cheese for this recipe is some sort of cheddar. I used marble.
I took this recipe from Pinterest (classic) and made them crustless.
Serves: 12 mini quiches
Ingredients: 2 large eggs, 1 package pancetta cubes (I used PC), 10 cherry tomatoes (sliced \in halves), 1/4 cup milk, 1/2 cup grated cheese (I used marble), 1/2 package of sliced cremini mushrooms, 1 small handful spinach, 1/2 red pepper (diced), 1/2 green pepper (diced)
Instructions: preheat the oven to 425 degrees and grease a muffin tin (enough for 12, I used 2 x6 tin muffin pan). Pan fry the pancetta (see note below). Mix the eggs and milk together using a fork. In a separate bowl, mix the prepared cherry tomatoes, pancetta, peppers spinach and mushrooms. Combine egg/milk mixture with veggies and top with grated cheese. Mix everything together and distribute evenly into muffin tins. Bake for 18-20 minutes.
*Note: you may want to pan fry the pancetta before adding it to the mixture so everything cooks evenly.
I started making these every morning on Christmas day. If your Christmas’ are like our family’s day, you need a breakfast that will fill you up and power you through the business of the day. With the mixture of eggs, vegetables and meat for protein, you’re off to the best start. Serve these with roasted or pan-fried potatoes, a cup of coffee, and/or a mimosa!
