Looking for an easy way to get your protein at breakfast? No time to cook in the morning? Make a big batch of these on the weekend and freeze in small zip-lock bags. To reheat, pop in the microwave from 30 seconds to a minute. Don’t care for peppers and spinach? Any combination of low glycemic index vegetables, meats and cheeses may be substituted for the ingredients below. Get creative! Bacon, mushrooms and swiss. Nitrate-free ham and cheddar. Spinach, feta and red onion. Chicken, jalapenos, cumin and queso fresco. Share your favorite combination in the comments section below.

  1. Observation from an astute reader: These quiche cups are baked in foil liners. If you are going to reheat them in the microwave, remember to remove the foil first. A kitchen fire is no way to start the morning!
