Fastest breakfast in the west!  I’ve started making these little individual “quiche” on a regular basis and I love them so much, I’m going to share them with you.  They are good for vegetarians and non-vegetarians alike.  Based on some small changes they can be ultra-healthy, or “mostly” healthy.  They are kd-friendly, time saving and tasty!  What more could a frazzled mom need, right?  So without further ado, here they are!  They are basic and simple and that’s why I love ’em~

Kristin’s Fake Quiche (recipe for 4 large.  You’ll need to make slight accomodations for more or less or smaller sized quiche)

1 carton Egg Beaters (I use chive & cheese)  OR you can sub wth regular eggs, whisked with a little milk

2 or 3 oz. shredded cheese of your choice (I use cheddar or pepper jack)

small flour tortillas (get the smallest that you can find)

4 slices well-cooked bacon (you can use turkey bacon, regular bacon or Morningstar Farms fake bacon)

I use the large-sized muffin tin for this.  If you are using a regular-sized muffin tins, you may need to trim your tortillas slightly. 

Begin by lightly spraying your muffin tin with non-stick spray.  Gently fit a tortilla into each muffin base.  I slightly fold the edges over each other.  Try not to rip them open on the bottom, though it’s not the end of the world.

Portion the shredded cheese and put equal amounts into each tortilla.  Gently press down.  This will help to keep the egg mixture inside and not leak out through any small tears in the tortilla.   Crumble one slice of cooked bacon into each muffin tin.  Then fill about 3/4 of the way with Egg Beaters, and salt and pepper to taste.  (at this point, if you are using regular eggs whisked with milk, fill only about halfway).

That’s it..or you can add in any vegetables or whatever else you’d like in a quiche.  Then bake at 375 until the eggs are set and the tortilla is lightly browned around the edge.  It usually takes about 1/2 hour for mine, but they are larger and take a little longer.  Small ones will take less time.

Once cooled, I wrap each one individually in tinfoil and keep them in the fridge.  On busy mornings, while getting Cooper and myself ready to go, I just throw one in the oven until reheated through.  They are awesome!
