Mini Quiches

Step 1) Brown the sausage or bacon and drain on paper towel.

Step 2) Chop and then sauté the vegetables.

Step 3) Insert little helper. My son added spinach to the skillet with the butternut squash noodles.

Step 4) Line a cupcake pan with liners. Fill with sausage or bacon.

Step 5) Divide veggies among the cups.

Step 6) Add the shredded cheese.

Step 7) Mix the eggs, cream or milk, and salt. Divide the mixture among the cups.

Step 8) Bake, cool, and enjoy!

This recipe is featured in my cookbook, New Southern Table. I changed it a bit to accommodate my husband’s request of more eggs. The original recipe calls for 8 eggs. I used 10 eggs.

Note: Moms this is a kid friendly recipe. My son ate one this morning.
