Muffin Pan Quiche
Looking for an easy-to-toss-together hot breakfast? These easy Muffin Tin Sausage Quiche Cups are my answer. These breakfast egg muffins have only four ingredients, so truly, anyone can make them!
I am a fan of making eggs in the morning so that everyone gets some good protein, but there usually isn’t time. This inexpensive dish is perfect for that reason. If you are a family on the go, you can prepare this great recipe ahead of time and have them ready as needed.
This is a freezer breakfast that you can either prepare the day you plan to eat them or meal prep over the weekend and freeze for later use. Either way, this muffin tin recipe will be tasty and ready for you when you are ready for them.
What’s better is that they can be a great replacement for fast-food breakfasts. If you tend to run through a drive-thru because you’ve run out of time to make an actual breakfast, this is a delicious sausage and egg cup that has lots of protein, will save you money, and take less time in the long run.
Looking to make these vegetarian? Replace the sausage with veggie crumbles or veggie bacon so that you still get that nice seasoned flavor. If you need to make these Muffin Tin Quiche Cups dairy-free, replace the cheddar cheese with a dairy-free alternative or vegan cheese. You can also choose to use only egg whites instead of whole eggs.
Just like a traditional quiche, these are perfect for busy weeknights, Mother’s Day, as one of your weekend brunch recipes, or for any other special occasions. One of those easy quiche recipes that will be a huge hit with the whole family!
Muffin Tin Quiche Cups Recipe
How To Make:
8 large eggs
1/2 lb breakfast sausage, cooked
1/2 cup cheddar cheese, diced or shredded
1 tube crescent rolls 8 ct
Take out a skillet and cook your sausage. If you are making veggie crumbles instead, prepare them at this point as well.
Next, take out a muffin pan with standard-size muffin cups and preheat your oven to 400 degrees. Spray 8 cups of the muffin tin with a non-stick cooking spray or grease them in your preferred method.
Pop open your can of crescent dough and separate the crescent roll dough along the pre-cut triangle shapes. You should not need a butter knife for this, but if the dough is sticky, using one may make it easier.
Place one crescent roll triangle into the bottom of each greased muffin cup, tucking any excess dough down into the cup. This is your quiche pie crust.
In a medium bowl, beat all 8 eggs well and pour them evenly into each of the crescent roll lined muffin cups.
Sprinkle cheese and sausage into each cup of the egg mixture. Use up any remaining ingredients by adding them to the existing crescent cups.
Bake your quiche cups for 20-25 minutes or until your eggs are cooked through and golden brown around the edges.
Pop each sausage and cheese quiche cup out of the muffin tin and serve hot. Top them with some sour cream or hot sauce and serve with hash browns or eat them just as they are. Enjoy!
Store any leftovers in the refrigerator in an airtight container or tightly wrapped in plastic wrap or under aluminum foil for up to 3 days.
If you’d prefer to freeze them, allow the crescent roll quiche cups to cool to room temperature and then place them in a freezer bag, expelling any excess air. Freeze for up to 3 months for best results.
Can I Add Anything Else To This Mini Quiche Recipe?
This is a great basic recipe to start with and delicious just as they are, but you can add whatever you want! As long as you chop everything into small pieces (remember, things need to fit into a 12-cup muffin tin), you can easily add green onion, red onion, green bell pepper or red pepper, fresh spinach, or anything else you have around.
Can I Use A Different Cheese In These Breakfast Quiches?
Yes! I enjoy the flavor of cheddar cheese, but you can easily replace it with swiss cheese, mozzarella cheese, American cheese, or parmesan cheese shreds. Another option is to sprinkle half of the cupcake quiche cups with one cheese and the other half with another – or use two in one to create a cheese mixture. Have fun with it!
Can I Use A Mini Muffin Tin For This Healthy Breakfast Idea?
Yes! This recipe calls for standard muffin tins, but you can turn these into mini quiche muffins. To make this work, use the same ingredients in the ingredients list. Cut each of the crescent dough triangles in half and place them into the cups of the mini muffin pan. Follow this up with a little bit of each of the other ingredients and bake. Your baking time will be less because these sausage and egg quiche cups are smaller, so I would start checking them at around 12 minutes.
