These little mini quiches were pretty much the highlight of our weekend. Meaning mine and Toby‘s. One of these gems dropped on the floor and he gobbled it up, then proceeded to lick the floor for any crumbs. I seriously would have done the same if another one dropped. They are that good!
I use Neese’s sausage because it is localish…Greensboro, NC actually. They are a family business and run by the fourth generation of Neese’s with the fifth generation on the way. It is about $1.00 more, but I don’t mind to pay a little extra to support a local family business. Plus extra sage =extra yum.
Here is what you need:
I pound of Neese’s Sausage
2 cups of shredded sharp cheddar cheese
6 eggs (fresh eggs are the best eggs)
2 Tablespoons of heavy cream
Directions: Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Brown the sausage, then drain. Pour sausage in a large bowl and add cheese, eggs, and heavy cream. Mix together. Lightly spray muffin tin. Pour about 1/3 cup into each muffin tin. Bake for about 20-25 minutes.
Each little mini quiche comes in at around 200 calories, less than 1 carb, no sugar, and about 12 grams of protein. We had these for dinner along with steamed broccoli and fresh fruit. A crowd pleaser for sure! (I did make some of these little quiches with egg whites, olive oil, and 2% cheese for my daughter and she loved them too. No photo though because they puffed up like giant mushroom clouds, then fell flat. One of those taste better than it looks moments.)
Breakfast for dinner is a staple in this house! Do you like having breakfast foods for dinner? Or are you more on the side of breakfast foods in the morning only?
