Crustless Broccoli Mini Quiche
Call them crust-less quiches or "egg muffins," these mini quiches are absolutely scrumptious and makes a healthy snack and is kid-friendly as well. I make this often for breakfast or as evening snack for the kids. I also make them with egg whites and they turn out well each time. This is also a good idea to sneak in broccoli in your kids' diet. With the cheeses and the attractive color, they wont even know that you have added broccoli. You can also add shredded chicken and any other vegetable like carrot, corn, or chopped spinach. A very healthy, low-calorie and low-carb snack when made with egg whites.
1. Eggs, 5 or 4 cups of egg whites.
2. Milk, 2 tablespoons.
3. Broccoli, 1 stalk.
4. Shredded Parmesan cheese, 2 tablespoons.
5. Shredded cheddar cheese, 2 tablespoons.
6. Dry garlic and parsley flakes, a pinch of each.
7. Salt, a little bit.
8. Ground pepper, as needed.
Break the broccoli florets from the stalk. Cut them very finely or you can also pulse them once in a blender until they are very small. Whisk the rest of the ingredients along with the broccoli until the mixture is frothy. Pour them into a well greased muffin pan and bake at 350 degrees for about 15 minutes until the quiches rise up. Serve them as a snack or along with a main course.
