Cooking A-Z: Q is for Quiche Breakfast Muffins

photo 1 (2)

Honestly, I’ve always looked at quiche and thought it looked kind of weird and gross but this was due to a pure lack of knowledge and appreciation.  There are a ton of recipes for quiche out there…with crust, without crust, with meat, and without meat. The amount of eggs varied from recipe to recipe also. I was drawn to the cute quiche muffins because they seemed easier to eat and I love everything mini! I decided to put together what I thought would taste the best in a quiche breakfast muffin which is ham, spinach, cheddar cheese, feta cheese, Roma tomatoes, and eggs of course. Since I had never tasted quiche before and was a little grossed out by the concept, I was a nervous to taste it but while I making it, the colors were beautiful and fresh. On my first bite I was delighted! I woke my husband up immediately and told him of my new discovery!  I decided this is what he should have for breakfast…right that second, so we ate them together and they were sooo delicious. 🙂 I can’t believe all this time I have turned my nose up at quiche. I hope you try these and love them as much as I did!
