Eggs have gotten a bad rap in recent years, but they are full of protein and essential vitamins and minerals. Whip them up with some veggies for this traditional breakfast favorite.
Crustless quiche cups
- One 10-ounce package frozen chopped kale
- 2 large eggs
- 3 large egg whites
- 1/4 cup leek, chopped
- 1/4 cup sun-dried tomato, chopped
- 1/4 cup yellow bell pepper, seeded and chopped
1. Preheat the oven to 350°F. Line a six-cup muffin pan with paper liners and spray with nonstick cooking spray.
2. If using frozen kale, microwave it for 2½ minutes on high, then drain away the excess liquid. Combine the eggs, egg whites, leek, sun-dried tomatoes, kale and bell pepper in a bowl and mix well. Divide the mixture equally among the prepared muffin cups.
3. Bake for 20 minutes, or until a knife comes out clean after being inserted in the center.
Note: These will stay fresh in the fridge for a few days, but they don’t freeze well.
