These quiche muffins come from my neighbor Dennis. They are super easy to make and very tasty. These are made very quickly as well and are great for breakfast or late afternoon tea.
Dennis tell me that these will last nicely for a couple of days so he makes them in advance. He loves to take them with him when he goes fishing with his buds. He can make them the night before.
These are truly delicious to eat. They are also very pretty and colorful. We made these with white bread but you can go ahead and use whole grain or multigrain bread if you prefer.
These quiche muffins do not need extra salt. You will find that they are salty enough with the bacon and the cheese.
This is what you are going to need for these delicious quiche muffins:
Makes six large muffins
1 large six muffin tin (Texas muffin tin)
6 slices of white, wholegrain or whole wheat bread without the crust
¾ cup of grated cheddar or Colby or your favorite cheese
4 slices of bacon – cut into small pieces
1 large celery stalk – sliced
¼ cup small dice green bell pepper (capsicum)
¼ cup small dice red bell pepper (capsicum)
½ cup chopped tomatoes
¼ cup finely diced red onion
8 large eggs
Cayenne — optional
Spray the muffin tin with spray oil and heat the oven to 375 degrees F (190 C).
Place the eggs in a bowl and add the bacon, celery, bell pepper, tomatoes and onion. Mix well. Add half of the cheese and some cayenne if using. Mix again.
Place a slice of bread into each muffin cup. Press it down so it folds up the sides but be careful not to break it. Spoon the egg mixture on top of each bread slice and top with the remaining cheese.
Place the muffins in the oven and bake for about 20 minutes until they are fully cooked, browned and the cheese is completely melted.
Run a knife on the sides of the molds and remove each muffin carefully. Enjoy with some sour cream if you like.
