Crustless Broccoli-cheddar Quiches

Crustless Broccoli-cheddar Quiches

Breakfast for one? In these individual quiches, broccoli gives the creamy cheddar and egg a nice crunch; eliminating the crust cuts down on baking time. 1 package (10 ounces) frozen broccoli florets 3/4 cup shredded cheddar cheese (3 ounces) 1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Butter four 8-ounce ramekins (or a 9-inch pie dish); set aside. Bring a medium pot of salted water to a boil. Add broccoli; cook 1 minute. Drain well; transfer to a cutting board, and blot dry with paper towels. Chop coarsely. 2. In a large bowl, whisk together eggs, half-and-half, 1/2 teaspoon salt, 1/4 teaspoon pepper, and nutmeg. Stir in broccoli and cheese. 3. Place ramekins on a rimmed baking sheet. Ladle broccoli mixture into ramekins, dividing evenly. Bake until golden brown, 35 to 40 minutes. Serve with crusty bread and a mixed-green salad, if desired. I make this as one dish and have made it several times. So quick and easy - my family and I love this! I made this broccoli cheddar crustless quiche for guests for brunch today. I steamed fresh broccoli in the microwave and from there the whole thing came together in a couple of minutes. Rave reviews...I made it in a pie plate and only left in oven until eggs were set, just under 30 minutes. I will try with other vegetable and cheese varieties in the future. Sooo yummy! I threw this together for dinner one night (in 5 mins!) and could not have been more impressed. Instead of boiling the broccoli I bought the kind in a steamer bag and cooked it in the microwave (I reduced the time by about a minute). I also subbed skim milk for the half and half and used reduced fat cheddar. I served it with an arugula salad and bread. I'll definitely be making the regularly! You could absolutely substitute whatever cheese and veggies you have on hand. I found t Continue reading >>

Spinach Quiche Cups - Manila Spoon

Spinach Quiche Cups - Manila Spoon

Completely gluten-free and low-carb is this healthy and delicious SPINACH QUICHE CUPS that everyone will enjoy. You can tweak the recipe to add your favorite vegetables! A friend of mine is a distributor ofDemarle products (Silpat, Flexipan and Silform non-stick bakewaremade of fiberglass and food grade silicone from France). This week she kindly lent me some of herwares so I could trythem at home and learn how to use them, or sort of put them to the test. One of the productsI borrowed was her flexi-muffin tray.Since it issupposed to be non-stick,I thought the perfect dish to try would be my crustless spinach quiche cups (inspired by South BeachDiets Vegetable Quiche Cups), my favorite breakfast treatwhen I amin the mood for a low-carb and gluten-free diet. I love these mini-quiches but when I bake them without using liners, it can be painful to clean up the pan afterwards.Thats despite the claim that they are non-stick andthat Ieven used some oil spray on them. So, I am really looking for a product thatI can use for this recipe one that will truly work and would alsoprovide hassle-free cleaning. Wow, I am amazed at the result! One lookat the photo above and you can already see thatit was an astounding success. Look at these beautiful quiches, how they stand up so well, perfectly shaped,didnt look like half of them were left in the muffin pan (that usuallyhappensbefore I usedthis wonderful product).I also tried baking raspberry muffins inthe flexi-tray and they came out beautiful as well. And, because its truly non-stick I did notuse any muffin liners nor did I ever need to grease the pan. Hows that for convenience?However, if you dont have this pan, dont fret,either just use muffin liners or grease yourmuffin pan. Heres the recipe forthe spinach quiche whichis truly a Continue reading >>

Crustless Mini Quiche (single Serving Breakfast Muffins)

Crustless Mini Quiche (single Serving Breakfast Muffins)

Crustless Mini Quiche (single serving breakfast muffins) I am not a morning person. As some of you may remember, I made a resolution this year to wake up earlier, so I could be more productive during the day and spend less time surfing the web at night. So far, Ive made about as much progress as I did that time when I was fourteen years old and decided to read Crime and Punishment just for fun. Needless to say, fourteen-year-old-me gave up on that goal. But the me of today is NOT letting go of trying to become a morning person. Not yet, at least. In an effort to make dragging myself out from beneath the covers a little less painful, I made egg breakfast muffins. Aka, single-serving crustless quiches. Aka, grab-and-go frittata bites. Basically, an omelet you can reheat and enjoy whilst still in a half-awake zombie state. Braaaains! Err, I mean, breeeeakfast, breeeeakfast! I dont know about you, but when Im trying to get going in the morning, nothing makes me feel better than a protein packed breakfast. Some people are happy to eat waffles or pancakes or doughnuts for breakfast each morning (*cough* T-Hubs *cough*), but for me, I prefer to kick things off in a healthier way. If I start on track, Im more likely to stay on track and vice versa. The thing is, Im groggy mcsleepy-pants when I get up in the morning, and cooking myself breakfast (and dirtying a bunch of dishes) isnt usually the first thing I want to do. These little muffins solve that problem. One batch makes about sixteen muffins. I find that two are the perfect serving size for me (or three if Im really ravenous), which means I can make a batch over the weekend and have breakfast ready all week long. A few seconds in the microwave, or a few minutes in the toaster oven, and these babies are ready to go. Even i Continue reading >>

Cheddar Pepper Mini Quiche

Cheddar Pepper Mini Quiche

I decided Id finally make some mini Quiche. These are really popular for women following Trim Healthy Mama. The only problem was that we really dont like breakfast meats mixed into our eggs. So I decided to change it up a bit with some mushrooms, cheddar, peppers and onion; and Cheddar Pepper Mini Quiche were born. I like a crust on my Quiche, honestly I really dont care for them without it, so I used some low carb tortillas. The tortillas I had on hand were the larger ones (6 net carbs each) but I grabbed my kitchen shears and trimmed them up a bit so that they fit into my Texas Muffin Pan This pan has larger wells, each one holds just about 3/4 cup of fluid. You could use a regular muffin pan but that will change the serving size and could make it difficult to form the tortilla as a shell. If you are like me and following a Trim Healthy Mama Lifestyle these Cheddar Pepper Mini Quiche are considered an S meal. They also fit well into Low carb lifestyles and are diabetic friendly. Some of the benefits of making these Cheddar Pepper Mini Quiche They are easy to make ahead for a grab and go meal option They can be stored in the freezer and microwaved You can make a lot of them in a short period of time They travel well in lunch boxes and coolers So if you are looking for a way to make life a little bit easier these mini Quiche really help. You can change the fillings to whatever you have on hand. I had a bell pepper, sliced mushrooms, diced onions and cheddar, they would be really good with jalapenos, tomatoes and maybe some sriracha mixed into the eggs as well, also if you want to lower the calories a bit you can use egg beaters to make these a lighter meal. i normally eat them with a bit of cottage cheese and salsa. 3 low carb tortillas (soft taco size) or 6 of the sma Continue reading >>

Carnation Quiche Lorraine

Carnation Quiche Lorraine

* Percentage Daily Values are based on a 2000 calorie diet. CARNATION Quiche Lorraine is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 21. Rated 5 out of 5 by Rwiltzy from Tasty and easy Great recipe but like a previous review I precooked my crust. I also added pepper flakes and chopped spinach to sauted onions. Rated 4 out of 5 by muleluvr from Pantry items! One of the best quiche filling I'd ever; but, you have to cook refrigerated pie crust before adding filling or it will be doughy. I don't understand why few recipes mention this, when it makes all the difference! Rated 5 out of 5 by Cakepasta from Very good and easy to make! Really pleased with this recipe. You can vary the ingredients, too! Add 1 C chopped spinach, switch bacon to chopped ham, etc. Rated 5 out of 5 by Cakepasta from Very good and easy to make! Really pleased with this recipe.

Spinach And Onion Quiche (gluten Free, Dairy Free)

Spinach And Onion Quiche (gluten Free, Dairy Free)

Spinach and Onion Quiche (Gluten free, Dairy free) Last weekon my way home from work, whilst sat on the bus, I watched in complete disbelief as a mother (laden with shopping bags filled with boxes of cereals, fruit juice and pizza) handed her young son a family sized bag of crisps, a large bottle of Coke and a giant size Mars Bar- which he happily munched away onand had finished the majority of by the time I got of the bus. I felt quite emotional about the whole thing and even though he wasnt my child I felt a deep sense of responsibility towards him. Having had Type one diabetes (insulin dependent, auto immune disease) now for over ten years I can honestly say I wouldnt wish the disease on anyone. As much as I have found a better way (through a low carb/high fat Paleo lifestyle) to manage it over the last two years, it has and always will be a struggle. I still suffer from occasional highs and lows and the idea of long-term complications(blindness, amputations, kidney disease, heart disease etc) are to be honest, never far from my mind-set. If I didnt have Type one diabetes then I doubt I would be so passionate about everyone else taking care of themselves, as I would hate for anyone to suffer (Type Two Diabetes) at the hands of an entirely preventable disease**. Its an easy disease to hide behind and keep hidden from others and one that no one thinks will affect them. However, we are what we eat and our lives are so precious, the lives of children in their parents hands and I cant understand why any one would risk their health on something like type two diabetes (something that any one can get at any time). Our bodies are strong and made to withstand life and all thats thrown at it, but they will only take so much. I completely understand that fast food / processed f Continue reading >>

Quiche For Low-carbers

Quiche For Low-carbers

Diabetes Forum The Global Diabetes Community Find support, ask questions and share your experiences. Join the community I lovve quich, but usually have to cut off the crust [the dogs like quiche crusts whilst I was in edinburgh last week, I went into rinces street M&S and looked at their kitchen equipment on my way to the food hall to collect stuff for a picnic. i spotted their silicon bakeware and had an idea. It WORKS! non-pastry quiche 4 eggs beaten slightly plus 2 cup measures mixed cream/milk. beat together. Adedd whatever. I used 1 chopped onion lightly fried and some grated cheese. Pour into flan case. bake at 200 or 40 minutes and allow to finish setting. I've never thought of buying a silcone flan mould... Sounds like an omelette but done in the oven....not complaining as I love omelette's I did this but put the mixture into a silicone muffin tray so got 12 individual crustless quiches. I put in courgettes, red peppers and feta cheese. Have been having them for lunch this week, would be great for a picnic too! I like your idea Mrs Knitty - I've got some silicone muffin trays in the cupboard and I'm now very tempted to do this. They'd make a nice breakfast as well I'd imagine; depending on what you put in them, of course :lol: This quiche is easily the best I ever made, people fall over themselves to get hold of a slice 3 tablespoons LSA flour (that is equal quantities of Linseed, Sunflowerseed and Almonds, finely ground, mixed together gives you LSA flour, the lucky kiwis can buy it ready made) 1 tablespoon oil (macadamia oil or avocado oil is good) Mix everything together, then press this pastry into a well buttered quiche tin. Stab it with a fork a few times or else it will bulge while its baking. Bake it in the oven for about 30 minutes until golden brown. Continue reading >>

Mini Mushroom-&-sausage Quiches Recipe - Eatingwell

Mini Mushroom-&-sausage Quiches Recipe - Eatingwell

Position rack in center of oven; preheat to 325F. Coat a nonstick muffin tin generously with cooking spray (see Tip). Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add sausage and cook until golden brown, 6 to 8 minutes. Transfer to a bowl to cool. Add oil to the pan. Add mushrooms and cook, stirring often, until golden brown, 5 to 7 minutes. Transfer mushrooms to the bowl with the sausage. Let cool for 5 minutes. Stir in scallions, cheese and pepper. Whisk eggs, egg whites and milk in a medium bowl. Divide the egg mixture evenly among the prepared muffin cups. Sprinkle a heaping tablespoon of the sausage mixture into each cup. Bake until the tops are just beginning to brown, 25 minutes. Let cool on a wire rack for 5 minutes. Place a rack on top of the pan, flip it over and turn the quiches out onto the rack. Turn upright and let cool completely. Make Ahead Tip: Individually wrap in plastic and refrigerate for up to 3 days or freeze for up to 1 month. To reheat, remove plastic, wrap in a paper towel and microwave on High for 30 to 60 seconds. Tip: A good-quality nonstick muffin tin works best for this recipe. If you don't have one, line a regular muffin tin with foil baking cups. Storage smarts: For long-term freezer storage, wrap your food in a layer of plastic wrap followed by a layer of foil. The plastic will help prevent freezer burn while the foil will help keep off-odors from seeping into the food. Great recipe! I make some modifications by making a few with vegetables and cheese and a few with vegetables, cheese and chopped ham or bacon. I use 3-4 tablespoons of whipping cream in place of milk.I make them ahead of time so I don't have to fuss with fixing my breakfast every morning before work. Ok, after reading the reviews of the quiches ending up soggy, Continue reading >>

Anne's Tasty Tidbits: Crustless Quiche - Diabetes - What To Know

Anne's Tasty Tidbits: Crustless Quiche - Diabetes - What To Know

by Anne Safran Dalin, Person with Type 2 Diabetes This may be the holiday season, but Type 2 diabetes doesnt take a day off to celebrate. We deal with it 24/7, 365 days a year which means we must always be aware of what were eating and how were treating our bodies. Sleep, exercise, stress, and food all affect our blood sugar levels. We need to find a happy medium to keep our blood sugar levels in a safe range. Everyone is different, but nobody can achieve that goal by eating an unbalanced diet. I have learned, through experience, that not only do high carbohydrate foods cause my blood sugar levels to rise, they also cause me to feel tired, make my eyesight blurry, and crave more high carbohydrate foods. It becomes a vicious cycle. By greatly reducing those carb-y foods, I can think more clearly, I have more energy, and I no longer crave those foods. Its a miracle what changing our focus can do to gain better health. With Thanksgiving behind us, and the winter holidays quickly approaching, carb-y foods are all around us in great abundance. Overflowing party platters, leftovers in our refrigerator, the kind coworker who bakes Christmas cookies we cant turn a corner without offers of something sweet or crunchy to tempt us. Preparation is the best way to meet this challenge and still feel satisfied by what were eating. Today, Im going to share a recipe that helps me make it through without feeling deprived. My crustless quiche recipe can be served for breakfast, lunch, dinner, or as an appetizer. Ive made variations that are simple and tasty, as well as elegant enough for a Sunday brunch that will impress all your guests. Eaten in appropriate amounts, eggs can be a diabetics best friend. According to nutrition researcher Kris Gunnars, BSc, at Authority Nutrition, They are Continue reading >>
