Crustless Mini Quiche Bites Recipe

These Crustless Mini Quiche Bites are the perfect healthy breakfast that is packed with protein to keep you full all morning long. 

Since I’ve been on my new health kick (you know…all 12 days of it…), I’ve been trying to find better breakfast options that will keep me full.

As much as I love my peanut butter Nature Valley granola bars and Yoplait Light, I need variety in my life.  Or at least in my breakfasts. I am really, really, really not a morning person, so preparing something the morning of is not really a possibility.  I pretty much roll out of bed, throw on my clothes, and slump over my desk for an hour in a zombie-like state before I am capable of having an intelligible conversation.

I needed an option that was either ready-to-eat or that I could make ahead of time and just reheat at work.I haven’t frozen these yet, but from the refrigerator, I reheat four of them for 40 seconds on 50% power.

There are only 102 calories in 4 bites, but 6 grams of protein (per My Fitness Pal‘s calculator), which has been helping me stay full enough to survive until lunch time.  It’s been hit and miss in the past.  Most days I’ve had to scarf down Goldfish while the kids are at recess and come up with ways to cover up the sound of my stomach growling while the kids are silently reading.

And, you know, it always helps if it’s bite-sized. 🙂

  1. What an awesome recipe! My husband & I are gluten intolerant & it is very difficult to find a good breakfast alternative, but this one will do it!
    Thank you for sharing this, Becky! I am going to pin this on Pinterest.

  2. Wow, thank you, LuAnn! I'm so flattered! I just checked out your website. We lost one of our cats suddenly to FIP - absolutely devastating.
  3. These look delicious! I (and I think most people in the world, lol) have the same issue in having time for breakfast in the morning AT ALL, let alone healthy breakfast, so I'll definitely be adding these to my rotation! Any idea how long you'd bake these in a regular (not mini) muffin tin?
  4. I needed this recipe!that is awesome! I need to go protein and leave off the wheat - It will go a long way towards helping me w my health goals- I'm praying for a healing from RA - the mornings are brutal so, I totally appreciate the make ahead idea- thank you for sharing- I promptly pinned, fb, and tweeted it! :)
  5. When I had the gestational diabetes I got really tired of eggs so I would make Laura mcMuffins.... basically microwave sausage patty add a slice of cheese and toast an english muffin or one of those bagel thin things and voila breakfast... and I know they are under 30 carbs because I could eat them...
