So as I've mentioned before I'm on this horrible low carb diet. I spend day after day checking carbs, reading labels and doing lots of math to try and figure out what I can eat. Well one thing I can eat that makes for a good breakfast is crustless quiche. You really can make these any way you want to.
This time it is Turkey Bacon/Swiss/Green Onion and each one is only 2 carbs. Really you can use about any ingredients you want to though but it will change the carb (and other nutrition) values.
2 cups of eggs (I use Eggbeaters because I'm also watching cholesterol)
1/4 cup veggies (green pepper, green onion, onions, whatever you want)
3/4 cup shredded cheese (swiss, pepper jack, colby, cheddar... you get the idea)
1 cup of meat (cooked ham is real good in this but any precooked meat would work well)
Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees. Spray with oil or grease 12 muffin cups.
Mix veggies, cheese and meat together in a bowl
Pour into muffin cup the eggs. Spoon out the veggie mix and try to distribute evenly.
Put eggs into oven after oven has been preheated. Cook for 18-20 minutes and then let cool.
These can be served right away or you can freeze them. If you freeze them then I suggest wrapping them in a paper towel and microwaving for 1 minute on one side and then flipping it and cooking 1 additional minute.
