Recipe

I think I feel the verge of a “cupcake” addiction coming on. It all started with the lasagna cupcakes I made for a party a couple of weeks ago and now I find myself constantly thinking about what I else I can make into cute little cupcakes the possibilities are endless and likely you will start seeing lots more cupcake and muffin recipes showing up they are just so darn cute and a perfect on the go snack or meal with a salad or some veggies. For this recipe, I took an idea that I saw in Sunset magazine awhile back where they made mini quiche in muffin tins using crispy parmesan cheese as the quiche crust. In mine, I replaced the quiche crust with ham, and paired it with spinach, onions, and tomatoes, but you could use your favorite quiche recipe to make lots of different quiche cupcakes.

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees and spray a muffin tin with non fat cooking spray. (Mine has 12 muffin holes)
  2. Spray a saute pan with cooking spray and saute the onions until the begin to become translucent. Add the spinach and garlic and continue to saute until wilted. (You could add a pinch of nutmeg here which would be delicious). Remove from heat.
  3. In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the whole eggs, egg whites, milk, salt, and pepper until frothy. Stir in the spinach mixture and cheese.
  4. Push the ham into each muffin hole by gently pressing it in the bottom so the ham creates the crust for the quiche. Try to make sure the ham isn’t sticking to fat over the edge or it will burn during cooking.
  5. Pour the egg mixture into each muffin hole and cook for 20 minutes or until the egg is cooked through and becomes fluffy. These are great warm or cold and will keep well in an airtight container in the refrigerator.
  6. Tip: If you were planning on using these for a quick breakfast or more substantial meal, consider using a 6 cup muffin tin to create larger servings.
