mini veggie quiche cups


Any healthy breakfast that is quick and easy is a win in my book. And if it tastes good, that's like super bowl status. Introducing the champ, tackling hunger like a pro: the mini veggie quiche cup. We whipped up a batch of these at the beginning of the week and just reheated them in the mornings. To keep the cholesterol down, we used a carton of All Whites. The only ingredient in that little All Whites carton is egg whites (hence, the product name...but these days you never know). But if you would rather separate out the whites the old fashioned way or use the entire egg, that works too. Pick up whatever cheese is calling to you. Grab any veggies that are in season. Round up your eggs and get crackin'! (love me a corny yoke)
