Individual Crustless Quiche

Some days, I just want something completely different for lunch. Does that ever happen to you?

Sometimes working from home is a great thing.  I truly can make whatever I want.  But, I often don’t want to take the time to prepare something yummy so I opt for the simple salad or sandwich. And then I remembered those cute ramekins I bought last week from the Home Goods store  Now I was dying to try out a recipe just so I can use them.  So for lunch today, I whipped up an individual crustless quiche for me.  I used a 4 in x 2 in ramekin.

What inspires you to cook?

These types of mini dishes are a great way to provide portion control.  Plus they are cute and fun to make and serve in.

Serve these at your next family brunch, or better yet, pop these in the oven on Christmas morning.

If you want to make these ahead of time, I would mix the eggs and milk and cheese.  refrigerate over night.  Right before baking you can add the veggies, pour into the ramekins and bake.

Also, if you bulk up on the veggies, you might not need all that egg in one ramekin.

    • You can also, use 1/2 the cheese and have 2 for 8 points plus. and of course use all the veggies you want. Basically split the 1/4 cup rduced fat cheese into two ramekins. the eggs and egg white is 2 PP, but for two will be 5 PP, plus 3 PP for the cheese. Have fun making them and let me know how they turn out. Are you still out on disability? I hope you get well soon.

I love hearing from my readers!
