Having these little mini crustless quiches around is a delicious way to make sure you have a good high protein snack ready whenever you need one. I like to pop one in the microwave in the morning or grab one for a quick lunch when I’m in a hurry. They are filling and so delicious! You can also lighten up the recipe by using lower fat cheese and milk. And you can change things up by using a different flavor combination, such as bacon and leek, broccoli and spinach or maybe mushroom and onion. Best of all they are very easy to make, and if you decide to use cupcake liners, clean up is a snap!
