Delicious Egg Bites (Tiny Quiches!): Fast, Easy, Cheap and Fully Customizable Breakfast for Picky Eaters! | By Sherry Trautman | Travel-Mi.com
I love to make these mini quiches for breakfast when I have an abundance of produce from my Michigan garden. I always have lots of tomatoes, spinach and green onions and finding new ways to sneak healthy veges into meals is a passion of mine!
These tiny personalized breakfasts are basically mini quiches or omelets that are quick, affordable and easy to make!
What I love about these egg bites is that you can make extra on Sunday morning and store them in a container so they are ready to go on busy Monday and Tuesday mornings.
The great thing about these Egg Bites is that you have complete control to design your breakfast with whatever ingredients you fancy (or are leftover from last night's dinner). I like to add a ton of vegetables and Chris just wants cheese and meat.
Just know that certain ingredients must be sautéed, roasted, grilled or cooked first.

Depending on how many egg bites you wish to make and how much you fill your muffin tins with vegetables and meat determines how much milk and eggs you will need.
7 eggs with 1/4 cup milk filled 9 of my muffin cavities. You can always whisk up a couple more eggs and add a couple additional tablespoons of milk if you are feeding a larger group.
Note: You can also use egg whites instead of whole eggs.
4 large eggs equal 1 cup, or 1 egg equals 1/4 cup. If you purchase egg whites in a container, you will need 1 3/4 cups of egg whites to equal 7 eggs.
I use these silicone muffin baking pans to make these egg bites and mini meatloaf. It makes the perfect size meals for small eaters and great portions to take to work.
