Hectic mornings call for quick and healthy breakfasts. One of my favorite rush-out-the-door breakfasts is Muffin Tin Quiche, or as they are sometimes called, egg muffins. They’re packed with healthy protein and vegetables. And… a dash of that oh-so-good morning staple… bacon.

They’re also delicious as a healthy snack afternoon, that 3 p.m. lull, or even afternoon tea. For a crusted version, you may also want to see Mini Quiche Recipe in Muffin Tins recipe.

The American Egg Board says, “For only 70 calories each, eggs are rich in nutrients. They contain, in varying amounts, almost every essential vitamin and mineral needed by humans as well as several other beneficial food components. Egg protein is the standard by which other protein sources are measured.”

  1. Hi Stephanie! I made your little quiches tonight-they’re wonderful! I sautéed the diced potatoes in the bacon grease instead of olive oil (my son loves the flavor of bacon on EVERYTHING! 😄) and used sun dried tomatoes to cut down on the liquid. They were so good! Thank you for the recipe!






    1. Hi Ruth! I’m SO glad you enjoyed the muffin tin quiche! Your adaptations sound delicious!! Thank you so much for trying the recipe and letting me know. Have a great week.
