Real men do eat quiche—or will when it's stuffed with Canadian bacon and cheese. Served over salad, these quiches make an elegant lunch or a quick, healthy dinner. You can also make them in advance, store them in the refrigerator, and let the kids have one or two for a healthy after-school snack.

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Coat 12 nonstick ( ½-cup) muffin cups with cooking spray (see Tip).
  2. Whisk eggs, egg whites and buttermilk (or milk) in a large bowl. Stir in scallions, cheese, bacon and ½ teaspoon pepper. Divide the egg mixture evenly among the prepared muffin cups.
  3. Bake until the eggs are cooked and beginning to brown on top, 25 to 28 minutes. Run a knife around edges to loosen the quiches from the cups.
  4. Meanwhile, whisk lemon juice, oil, mustard and pepper to taste in a large bowl. Add salad greens to the bowl; toss to coat with the dressing. To serve, divide the salad among 6 plates and top with tomato wedges and 2 quiches each.

I can't believe no one has reviewed these yet. They are great! I made with skim milk, not buttermilk and added some extra salt and pepper to the egg mixture. 2 or 3 make a great lunch, and one is the perfect size for a snack.
