Hello friends –

Ben and I absolutely love these little spinach & mushroom quiche cups for breakfast! So much so that after we ate all of the ones that I made on Saturday morning, I made another dozen last night! On the weekends I serve these with sausage patties and toast but during the week I just pack us up 2 each and we eat them at our desk. Yes I know, so glamorous but at least it is a delicious way to start the morning. These are super easy and feel free to get creative with the recipe! How you enjoy these as much as we do.

Spinach & Mushroom Quiche Cups

Adapted from the manillaspoon.com recipe.

Prep Time: 15-20 min

Cook Time: 20-23 min

Servings: 12 quiche cups

Ingredients:

  • A little olive oil (for cooking the mushrooms)
  • 1 (10 oz) package fresh baby spinach
  • 6 - 8 eggs (depending on the size of the yolks)
  • 1 cup shredded cheese of your choice (I use asiago, pecocino, or other Italian blend of cheese)
  • 1 (8 oz package) sliced mushrooms
  • 1-2 Tbsp, heavy cream or half-and-half (optional)
  • Salt and Pepper, to taste

 Variation: You can substitute the mushrooms with asparagus or bell peppers instead!

 Directions:

 1.       Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.

2.       Heat a little olive oil in a skillet and sauté the mushrooms until they are soft. Approximately 5-6 minutes then set aside.

3.       Place the spinach in a skillet and add a little water (about ¼ cup). Cook the spinach on low to medium heat until it is wilted which is approximately 3-4 minutes. Use a spatula to pack the spinach. Drain the excess water really well.

4.       In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the eggs until they are combined. Add the cooked mushrooms, spinach, cheeses, and heavy cream to the eggs. Mix well. Then season with salt & pepper to taste.

5.       Divide evenly among the 12 muffin cups. Tip: I use a gravy ladle to make sure that I get most of the egg mixture into the actual muffin cups!

 
Tip: Don't fill them up quite as full as I did. They tend to rise as they bake like cookies!

6.       Bake for about 20-23 minutes. You can use a tester/toothpick inserted into the center and make sure that it comes out clean.
