Mini Quiche

I’m preparing for the busy weekend that is here. YIKES! Have a crowd arriving and I’m going to be better than just plain “ready”! This is a simple marvelous breakfast/brunch/nutritious snack to have on hand. And children think it’s wonderful. What beats that? Game Day!

Brunch Mini egg omelet I1/2 lb ground sausage
8 eggs
2 cups grated mozzarella cheese
2 Tbs butter
1/4 cup chopped green pepper
1/4 cup chopped red pepper

Brown sausage in skillet on medium high, stirring often.
Drain grease off sausage, and transfer sausage to paper towels to blot.
Melt butter in small skillet.
Sauté peppers 2 minutes, until tender.
Drain excess butter.

Preheat oven to 350°.

Beat eggs in large mixing bowl.
Add sausage, cheese, and peppers; and stir to combine.
Grease a muffin tin with cooking spray.
Fill 10 cups with mixture.
*If there are empty cups in the muffin tray, fill them half way up with water to balance cooking.
Cook 20 minutes, or until done.

*Author’s Note: If you use low fat turkey sausage, you are looking at a mere 140 calories each.Brunch mini egg omelet III

*These freeze well.
To serve after frozen, thaw 1 hour at room temperature.
Then microwave for 45 seconds.
Let rest for 1 minute.
Microwave another 45 seconds.

*If you are going to serve them the next day for breakfast, do not freeze. You may simply place them in a plastic bag and pop them in the microwave the next morning for 45 seconds. Test for warmth by inserting a knife into the center and then touch the knife for heat. If necessary zap another 10 to 15 seconds.
