Mini Spinach Breakfast Quiche

Mini Spinach Quiche

Last week I mentioned that I had a great brunch recipe to share with you that would be perfect for Easter, but you don't have to wait until then to give these tasty mini spinach quiche a try! They're fantastic any time, and you can easily customize them based on your favorite flavor combinations.


I chose to fill these with a spinach and bacon combination, and my kids loved them so much that I was barely able to snap a picture before they devoured them all!

Easter Brunch Idea

Starting with Great Value refrigerated crescent roll dough for the crust means that you can spend less time in the kitchen and more time relaxing with your family. Plus the small size means they bake up much more quickly than a full-size quiche, as well.

You simply press the crescent roll dough triangles into greased muffin cups, making sure to pinch any holes closed tightly. They're then filled with the mixture of eggs, sautéed bacon and onions, spinach, sour cream and mozzarella cheese -- super easy and totally delicious.

Tip: Try baking your bacon in the oven for perfectly cooked bacon with less mess!

Aren't they cute? And they're surprisingly filling, so you really don't need to prepare a ton of other food along with them.

Yield: 16 mini quiche

Mini Spinach Quiche

Ingredients:

  • 2 cans Great Value refrigerated crescent roll dough
  • 1/4 cup onions, chopped
  • 3 slices cooked bacon, diced
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 1 (9 oz.) package frozen chopped spinach, thawed and well drained
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper
  • pinch of nutmeg
  • 1 cup mozzarella cheese

Instructions:

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Sautee chopped bacon and onions in a skillet until the onions are translucent and the bacon is cooked through and allow to cool.
  3. Whisk the eggs well, and then stir in the sour cream, spinach, salt, pepper, nutmeg, and the cooked and cooled bacon and onion mixture. Fold in the mozzarella cheese.
  4. Spray 16 muffin cups with cooking spray or grease with butter, and press one triangle of crescent roll dough into each cup, sealing any holes, to form the crusts. Then fill each crust to the top with the egg mixture.
  5. Bake at 350 degrees for approximately 20 minutes, until the crust is browned and a knife inserted in the center comes out clean.
  6. Serve warm.

While I think I prefer these mini spinach quiche warm from the oven, they're still very good cold, making them a great grab-n-go breakfast option. No fork necessary!
