I received this recipe years ago from a Weight Watchers leader. It's fantastic! You can adjust and play around with the ingredients as you like (I'm not a fan of spinach) You can also make them not-diet-friendly by adding sausage, bacon, ham, other cheeses - I like jalepeno in mine with onion and mexican blend shredded cheese. Plain old pepper and egg are good too. AND they can be frozen - so I grab a couple and head out the door to work, by the time I'm there a min or less in the microwave warms them up and I'm ready to have a healthy breakfast. LOVE this recipe! Thanks for sharing it! Read More

I did not have egg substitute on hand, I used three extra large eggs instead. I also used regular sharp cheddar. This was okay--edible but bland. If I were to make it again, I would play around with the recipe a bit to make it more flavorful. Read More

This makes a great low-carb breakfast. I have made these many times in the past. You can make up a batch and store in the fridge for several days..just warm them up in the microwave for a few seconds and you have a quick breakfast. Sometimes I will add some diced ham to them and they can also be made with 3 large eggs instead of eggbeaters. Read More

I love this recipe - easy healthy and tasty. I make mine "greek salad style" - Along with the base of eggs and spinach I use low fat feta cheese add a tsp of dried oregano red and green bell pepper and onion. They are tasty and easy - freeze well and are great heated in the microwave on a slice of whole grain toast. One note: make sure you spray your cupcake pan well or use foil muffin liners:) Read More

This is an old S Beach diet recipe. It was bland back then so I made it with some extras such as adding salt/pepper garlic and onion powder and because I wanted a little more protien I added 3 diced slices of Canadian Bacon. Definitely use the tin foil baking cups and cooking spray or they'll be very sticky with paper! Read More

Vegetable Quiche Cups To-Go Haiku: "Fun and convenient. Just didn't taste like that much. Needed seasoning." Other than swapping egg substitute for 3 larger eggs I followed the recipe as directed and found myself adding considerable amounts of salt pepper and hot sauce when it came time to eat one. I do love having frozen mini crustless quiche bites for a quick breakfast but I also want them to be tasty so if I made this recipe again I'd tweak around w/ more spices as well as maybe sauteeing the onion and bell pepper 1st rather than mixing them raw and crunchy into the eggs.

I made these in mini muffin pans for a relative to freeze for easy healthy breakfast after having her first child. I used red peppers spinach and carrots (shredded in food processor) and no liners. She loved them and requested again next time we visited. Read More

I made these and added 1/3 cup of pork sausage crumbles, used roasted red pepper (diced) and sauted my onion. I didn't have any muffin cup liners so I used a sprayed 1-1/2 quart casserole and baked it for 30-35 minutes then cut it into 12 small squares. Pretty good for diet food. I calculate 91 calories for 2 small squares by using MyFitnessPal.com. Read More
