They say that breakfast is the meal of champions and I have to agree, it’s by far my favorite meal. I could have breakfast for breakfast, lunch & dinner and I sometimes do! I’m not the only one in my household with the same sentiments for breakfast foods. Whenever I ask the kids what they want for dinner, they always reply “Breakfast for dinner!” However, we sometimes run into difficulties when it comes to breakfast foods. Like most kids, my 9 and 11-year-old can be picky eaters. When I make a meal, they dissect it like they are in Science class and pick out anything that looks suspicious. By suspicious, I mean it cannot contain any particle of vegetables or what they like to call “green stuff.”
So when I am making a classic breakfast food dish, such as eggs, I leave out some of my favorites “mix-in’s” like spinach and peppers to accompany the eggs. Sure, scrambled eggs and cheese can still taste great without vegetables but some dishes, like a delicious spinach quiche, just isn’t the same without “green stuff” in it. Therefore, I have to get a little creative when cooking for the entire family. This is the very reason I started making these crust-less mini-quiches. Each mini-quiche can be catered to an individual’s particular tastes. For my husband and I, we opt for the spinach, bacon, cheese and sweet pepper mini quiches. For the kids, they prefer bacon and cheese quiches. With a little creativeness and ingenuity; we can make the entire family happy! Check out my recipe:
Crust-less Mini Quiche Recipe
1/2 cup Milk
Preheat oven to 350 degrees and spray a muffin pan with non-stick cooking spray.
Using my new Braun PureMix Blender, I can easily chop up the pepper and spinach “mix-in’s” to add to the mini quiches. The blender has a smooth crush blade system for optimum blade results, thanks to the exclusive combination of the specifically designed jug and the higher positioning of the blade system.
This amazing high tech blender also has power assist technology. It actually auto senses contents within the blender and maintains optimal speed to power through all the ingredients. With its 5 speeds, plus auto-pulse, you can’t ask for a more multi-functional blender!
My least favorite time of the cooking process, due to occasional joint pain, is whipping up eggs. Braun’s MultiQuick 7 Hand Blender to the rescue! The hand blender portion of this appliance comes with 3 attachments, a beaker, a masher and a whisk. It’s the world first smart technology hand mixer, the more you squeeze the more power you get, making it extremely easy to regulate speeds. The blades are made with a durable stainless steel and the shafts have a unique bell-shape to them, making blending faster with finer results. This set also comes with a food processor which chops, slices, shreds (fine and extra-coarse) and juliennes.
The Braun Kitchen Collection is returning to North America after nearly a decade off the market. As you can see, these amazing appliances can help you conquer the unexpected! For more information, visit Braun on Facebook.
Once the eggs are thoroughly beaten, split the mixture evenly in 12 muffin cups. Fill each cup with the appropriate mix-in’s you prefer and place in oven.
Cook mini-quiches 10 minutes, turn pan 180 degree and cook an additional 10 minutes. Serve these delicious crust-less mini quiches the entire family can enjoy!
