{Portable Omelets} gluten free too!


Breakfast is so important but time can be a crunch!
  Whip up a batch of these mini-crustless quiches.
They freeze great and reheat in minutes as hot breakfast bites.

The lack of crust makes them a snap. 
They are wonderful to have on hand for both kids and adults. 
Just fill with their favorite morsels -- turkey sausage, cheese, mushrooms, peppers? 
On a busy morning they can be quickly warmed in the microwave for...
breakfast on the go!

 

 Ingredients
  • 8 ounces turkey breakfast sausage crumbled into small pieces 
  • 1 teaspoon extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1/4 cup shredded cheese (your choice)
  • 1 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
  • 5 eggs
  • 3 egg whites
  • 1 cup milk
  • Mushrooms, peppers, onions or your choice of  "add-ins
  1. Position rack in center of oven; preheat to 325°F. Coat a nonstick muffin tin generously with cooking spray
  2. Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add sausage and cook until golden brown, 6 to 8 minutes. Transfer to a bowl to cool. Add oil to the pan. Saute the "add-ins" stirring often, until golden brown, 5 to 7 minutes. Transfer to the bowl with the sausage. Let cool for 5 minutes. Stir in cheese.
  3. Whisk eggs, egg whites and milk in a medium bowl. Divide the egg mixture evenly among the prepared muffin cups. Sprinkle a heaping tablespoon of the sausage/cheese mixture into each cup.
  4. Bake until the tops are just beginning to brown, 25 minutes. Let cool on a wire rack for 5 minutes. Place a rack on top of the pan, flip it over and turn the quiches out onto the rack. Turn upright and let cool completely.
  5. Make Ahead Tip: Wrap individually in plastic wrap and refrigerate for 3 days or freeze for one month.  
  6. To re-heat, remove from plastic wrap, wrap in a paper towel and microwave for 30-60 secs.
  7. Omit the sausage for vegetarian style!
