Home Cookings: Crustless Mini Quiche Tarts

Crustless Mini Quiche Tarts

The beginning of winter means more cooking and new training for my next half-marathon in SF later this spring.  This recipe is from a friend of mine that I happened to crash with up in Athens earlier in the fall.  She said that she would make a ton of these on Sunday and then use them as breakfast later in the week. It’s a great recipe that you can modify to your liking, and given my new training regimen, it fits right along with what I eat for breakfast which is something low carb anyway.

Crustless Mini Quiche Tarts

Ingredients

  • 6 eggs
  • 1/4 cup of milk
  • 1/2 onion, thin sliced
  • 1/4 cup of sun dried tomatoes (or thin sliced tomatoes, seeds removed)
  • 1/2 cup of green peppers, thin sliced
  • goat cheese crumbles (or thinly-shredded sharp cheddar)
  • salt and pepper (to taste)
  • 1 6-cup muffin pan
  • canola oil/spray

Directions

  1. Pre-heat the oven to 350F.
  2. In a pan, saute the onions and green peppers.  Remove from pan and let cool in a separate bowl.
  3. In a mixing bowl, beat the eggs and milk until evenly mixed.  Sprinkle a pinch of salt and pepper to taste.
  4. Spray or grease the muffin tin generously.
  5. Put in the sauteed vegetables, tomatoes, and goat cheese evenly.  I added fresh cilantro because I wanted a more “salsa” flavor but some people find this too strong of a flavor so you can omit it.

  6. Pour in the egg mixture into each cup until 2/3rds or 3/4ths full. Sprinkle extra goat cheese into each mixture.  Place in oven and bake for approximately 20minutes or until tooth pick comes out clean from the center.

This is really easy to heat up in the microwave or in the toaster oven if you’re an anti-microwave user.  I could easily kill two or three of these for breakfast plain or with ketchup.  Thanks for the continued readership!  Christmas break will have a lot more cooking but definitely a bunch more eating out too with friends visiting from out of town!  Hope your holiday season is going well!
