Individual Breakfast Quiches

Here is a yummy breakfast that has become a big hit in my household -

Individual Breakfast Quiches

Makes 1 dozen

7 eggs
1 cup Almond Milk (or any milk or milk substitute)

Your choice of fillings – I used:
9 ounces Al Fresco Chicken Sausage – Maple and Apple flavor (12 oz package – use 3 of the 4 links to get the right amount) – removed from casing and crumbled into small pieces – I used a knife to cut them up really small.
1 small can mushroom pieces (or use fresh and sauté first)
¼ cup sliced red onion (or use leeks or scallions or whatever you have on hand)
¼ teaspoon pepper

You could also add cheese if you aren’t dairy free (or use a cheese substitute if you have one you like – I think these are great just the way they are) – or bell peppers or really any fillings you would put in an omelet.


Preheat oven to 325 degrees – making sure the rack is positioned in the center of the oven.

Generously coat a regular muffin pan with cooking spray.

Whisk the eggs and milk in a medium bowl.

Cook the sausage over medium heat until nice and brown. Add mushrooms, onions and pepper and cook another minute or two.

Divide the egg whites equally between the muffin cups (about ¼ cup each).

Spoon a heaping spoonful of filling into each muffin cup.

Bake until they are solid in the middle and the tops are starting to brown – time varies with the type of muffin cup you are using – mine take about 45 minutes to cook – I would start checking after 30 minutes to be safe.

Cool for 5 minutes and then turn quiches out.

These can be made ahead and reheated for a quick weekday breakfast.
