Quiche Lorraine Mini Muffins 1

Crustless Quiche Lorraine Mini Muffins Recipe

June 4, 2018

I love making quiche. It’s an all-in-one delicious way to eat protein, vegetables, fresh herbs . . . whatever you want to add. Quiche Lorraine is classic with its layers of egg, bacon and swiss cheese all nestled in a flaky crust, so Parisienne.

A lot of folks don’t want the added calories from the crust, so I’ve made this one crustless and in a mini form; it’s the perfect size for a quick morning breakfast or an anytime snack.

I love Swiss cheese and most brands are made from part-skim milk cheese which makes it lower in calories than most cheeses.  Just check the ingredient label to see if “cultured part-skim milk” is the first ingredient listed.

As the French say, “Bon Appetit”!

Makes 12 servings
Prep Time: 10 minutes, Cook Time: 20 minutes

Ingredients

  • Cooking Spray
  • 10 large eggs
  • 2 Tbsp low-fat milk
  • 1 cup fresh spinach, roughly chopped
  • 6 slices center-cut bacon, cooked and crumbled
  • 1 cup shredded Swiss cheese
  • 2 Tbsp thinly sliced green onion
  • 2 Tbsp fresh chopped parsley
  • 2 Tbsp fresh chopped basil
  • 1/4 tsp sea salt
  • 1/4 tsp freshly ground black pepper

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. and coat a 12-muffin pan with cooking spray. Set aside.
  2. Whisk together eggs, milk, spinach, bacon, cheese, onion, parsley, basil, salt and pepper in a large bowl. Using 1/4 cup measure, scoop the mixture into the prepared muffin pan. Fill to about 1/4 inch from the top. Bake for 20 to 25 minutes, or until the egg is fully set.
  3. Remove from the oven and let cool for 5-10 minutes before running a butter knife around each muffin, and gently removing from the pan. Enjoy while warm, or let cool completely before storing in an airtight container in the fridge. Leftovers can be reheated for several seconds in the microwave (time will vary depending on your microwave).
