Ham & Cheese Quiche Cups

These easy to make quiche cups are a great grab and go breakfast.


I am not the breakfast chef in this house.  I think you may have noticed that if you follow along.  Hubby and Sweet Girl are the best pancake makers and waffle chefs ever.  I am an oatmeal lover and that is my one breakfast dish that I can make - and I'm great at it if I do say so myself.  

This Sunday, Hubby needed to get some work done (he works from home) and asked me to handle breakfast.  And by asking me to handle breakfast he was implying cereal, oatmeal or frozen waffles was not what he was craving.  After a quick recipe search, I found this fun and tasty recipe for Ham & Cheese Quiche Cups from The Dinner Mom.  I had almost all the ingredients but this was a great base recipe to play around with.  And did I mention these little quiche cups were just adorable.



The leftovers store easily and are simple to reheat for a quick grab and go breakfast during the weekdays.  I may or may not have eaten a few cold right out of the fridge and they may have tasted just as delicious this way too.

The only problem with this breakfast - I just let Hubby know that in a pinch I am capable of making a good breakfast.  I hope he doesn't think this is happening every weekend.  I love that he always take care of breakfast on the weekends.  And for the sake of bragging a bit, he also brings me a cup of coffee in bed every morning because I am NOT a morning person.  And because he is awesome!

recipe adapted from The Dinner Mom
Ingredients:
5 eggs
1 cup milk 
1 1/2 cup cheese, shredded (I used colby-jack)
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon pepper
18 slices of thinly sliced ham

Directions:
Preheat oven to 350 and spray a muffin tin with cooking spray.  
whisk the eggs in a bowl and add the milk, cheese, salt and pepper and combine.  
Fill each cup with a slice of ham.  evenly divide the egg mixture amongst the muffin cups, filling about 3/4 of the way.  





Bake for about 25 minutes or until the eggs have set and a tooth pick inserted in the center comes out clean.
Let cool a few minutes before serving.




What flavor combinations would you put in these quiche cups?  I'm thinking broccoli and feta next time.

Last year at this time I made No Bake Granola Bars.
Two years ago  made Slow Roasted Garlic Tomatoes.
Three years ago I made Rosemary Focaccia Bread in the Bread Machine.
