Mock Baby Quiche

So cute and full of delicious flavors, these Mock Baby Quiche are as fun to make as they are to pop into your mouth! I love these for brunch, an easy appetizer or make a batch ahead of time to warm up for a quick healthy breakfast on the run! The kids ask for these and are a perfect healthy snack after school too! The ingredients are as versitle as your imagination. A wonderful way to use up leftovers and the last of your veggies. This recipe fits in wonderfully with a low-carb diet too!

This recipe makes 12, double and make an extra batch, as these babies don’t last long!


3/4 cup Sharp Cheddar Cheese (or cheese of choice) shredded
1/2 cup ham diced (deli ham works great too)
1 large scallion white and green parts, thinly sliced
1/4 cup green sweet pepper (or colored works well too) diced
4 eggs
splash milk
salt and pepper to taste

Spray mini muffin tin with cooking spray. Pre-heat oven to 375 degrees. In each hole, place ham, scallions, green pepper and cheese. In another bowl, mix 4 eggs and milk with wire whisk. Salt and pepper to taste. Pour egg mixture over ham/cheese/vegetables in each tin just to the top. Cook 10-12 minutes until middle is set.

Other Variations:
Pepper-jack cheese, swiss cheese or any favorite shredded cheese
Green peppers (or any colored pepper)
Tomatoes, seeded and drained diced
Fresh Herbs such as basil, thyme, sage, chives

For a Thanksgiving brunch try: Sage sausage, sweetened dried cranberries chopped and chives with swiss.

Our family favorite: Pepper-jack cheese, ham, scallions and green pepper!
