Recipe: Breakfast Cupcakes

These individual, crustless quiches are perfect for families on the go. Whip up a batch (or two) on Sunday evening, and you have an easy go-to breakfast for busy weekday mornings. They’re also really versatile – this version features spinach and mozzarella, but cooked broccoli and cheddar or crispy bacon can easily be substituted or added!

Ingredients

1 tbsp olive oil
1/4 cup yellow onion, diced
1/4 cup green bell pepper, diced
1 cup baby spinach leaves, roughly chopped
1/2 cup mozzarella cheese, shredded
4 eggs
1/4 cup milk
1 tsp kosher salt
freshly ground pepper

 

Preparation

Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees.

Line a muffin tin with foil baking cups and spray with cooking spray (or simply spray the muffin tin directly with cooking spray). In a medium frying pan, heat olive oil over medium-low heat, then add onion and green peppers. Saute, stirring occasionally, until vegetables begin to soften, about 3 minutes. Add spinach leaves and stir until spinach has wilted, about 2 minutes. Transfer vegetable mixture to a bowl and allow to cool slightly. Add cheese.

Whisk together eggs, milk, salt and pepper, then pour over the vegetable-cheese mixture and stir to combine. Divide evenly among 6 muffin cups.

Bake until cupcakes have set, about 20 minutes. The cupcakes will puff during cooking and then deflate slightly as they cool.
