Crustless Mini Quiches [Paleo] [Vegetarian]

By October 17, 2014Featured, Recipes

If breakfast is your biggest struggle in the mornings, then this recipe is for you – unless you don’t eat eggs… in which case, this is not for you. Sorry.

But for all you egg-eaters out there, these Crustless Mini Quiches are great breakfast options to prepare in advance, so you can just grab and go on your way out the door. They’re easily portable, not messy, and kid-friendly, so you should definitely try them.

This recipe can be made without meat, for the ovo-vegetarians in the house (vegetarians that eat eggs), and the meat eaters can add any meat they like.

Meat eaters, you can either dice your meat and sprinkle it into each cup, or you can use ham or bacon to line the muffin tin and serve as a meat cup. Your choice!
