Muffin Tin Breakfast Quiches?

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi - Breakfast is my biggest challenge.  I really miss a quick egg sandwich that I can grab at the deli and eat at my office.  I'm wondering if anyone can recommend any good make ahead type egg breakfasts that I can pop in my bag (in a container, of course) and microwave at work.  I remember some sort of crustless quiche thing that I made on the South Beach Diet many moons ago, but they took a ton of prep.


I like eggs,cheese,tomatoes,broccoli, turkey bacon - pretty much anything you might use other than mushrooms and peppers.


Other recommendations also welcome.

No quiche recipe, but I just sent my husband off with a ham and egg sandwich in hand. Takes about five minutes to prepare. I take a variety of porridges to go cooked in a mini crockpot overnight or on the stove which takes less than 10 minutes. At work, I used to nuke sweet potatoes or butternut squash with cinnamon etc. and have a defrosted chicken breast eaten right out of the bag, like hash browns at Mc D's. Fruit to go is easy too.

I make this and then freeze them. They take a minute or two to warm up in the microwave. They travel well. Substitute sweet potato or more veg less meat. You can scramble eggs and cook in a muffin tin and then freeze them, too. I have a microwave scrambled egg thing that is quick and much easier to clean up than a pan, too.

You can get these at target and other places. My son puts some cheese on the egg when it's almost done and puts it on toast with a slice of ham or bacon.

I make a crustless quiche and use it for four breakfasts.  Not too much prep:


Grease an 8 x 8" dish or pie plate

Cover the bottom with one thawed and squeezed dry box of frozen spinach (or an equivalent amount of any not-too-wet veggie)

Sprinkle in crumbled bacon, leftover ham, or any interesting meat you have

A little onion powder or spices to taste

Top with your favorite grated cheese

Beat 6 eggs with about 1/4 cup of milk and pour over everything

Bake at 350 for 35 minutes.  Let cool, cover, refrigerate.  Cut in quarters and microwave one per meal.


Vary the cheese, veggies, and meat for almost infinite variety, and it keeps you full all morning.

This is a basic recipe for egg muffins . you can add to /change the ingredients  by using turkey bacon/ adding cheese/ what ever veggies you want .They store well in the refrigerator for up to a week and reheat well .They can be frozen ( although I think they get a bit tough after frozen )

" a variety of porridges"

I have seen recipes where you line a muffin tin with a strip of bacon, drop in an egg, whatever veggies you want, and sprinkle cheese on top and bake it.  I haven't tried any, though.

Just a quick thanks - I kind of merged all your recipes based on what I had on hand, and they were delicious!  Will definitely become a staple of my diet now - so easy to make.

I used eggs, onions, Aidell's chicken/apple sausage, cheddar, Italian herb spices and pepper.  I didn't have any baking spray on hand (not much of a baker), so I spread a little ghee in the muffin tin.


I felt like such a cook!
