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.

Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Coat 12 nonstick (1/2-cup) muffin cups with cooking spray (see Tip).

  • Whisk eggs, egg whites and buttermilk (or milk) in a large bowl. Stir in scallions, cheese, bacon and 1/2 teaspoon pepper. Divide the egg mixture evenly among the prepared muffin cups.

  • 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.

  • 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.


Make Ahead Tip: Wrap each quiche in plastic and refrigerate for up to 3 days or freeze for up to 1 month. To reheat, remove plastic, wrap in a paper towel and microwave on High for 30 to 60 seconds.

Equipment: Muffin pan with 12 (1/2-cup) muffin cups

Tip: Use a good quality muffin tin or muffin liners.

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. Read More
