I was in the mood for something quite cheesy with my eggs. I thought of quiche but knew I didn’t have any crust. So I raided my veggie tray and grabbed a few spears of asparagus and broccoli.
I rendered a few strips of bacon and then drained my skillet of extracted fat. Then I drizzled a couple teaspoons of olive oil and added a little finely chopped onions. After I blanched my asparagus and broccoli, I dried and added them to the skillet combining them with the sauteed onions. And set those aside.
In a bowl, eggs were whisked with a dash of milk. I seasoned with salt/pepper along with chopped parsley and a little chives I had on hand. After veggies were cooled I added this to the egg mixture.
In muffin tin I did a sparse wipe of oil with paper towel in six spaces. Mixture was then added. A little sprinkled cheese and crispy pieces of bacon were added and then placed in a 350 degree oven for 10 minutes with an additional 2 minutes under broiler for a brown top.
I served my crustless cupcake quiches with chopped tomatoes.
