Nothing is better than having breakfast prepared ahead of time for holidays. Do you agree?
With all the other Thanksgiving meal prep needed from daylight ’til prayer around the table, quiche cups are for you! Everyone needs these delicious make-ahead cups of quiche for a quick breakfast for family and guests.
Make them a day or two ahead while you’re doing all your Thanksgiving Day prep, and you’ll be set for the morning on the big day.
The first step is to load 1/8 cup of frozen hash browns into each vegetable oil prepared muffin cup and slide into the oven.
While baking, mix together the egg mixture.
Remove hash browns from the oven.
Add 1/4 cup of the egg mixture to each cup and bake. Top with cheese and return to oven for a few minutes to melt the cheese.
Run a knife around the rim of each quiche cup and let them rest a few minutes to “set”. You can serve immediately if you’d like, but these taste just as good a day or two later after refrigerated.
To re-heat, remove from refrigerator and run in the microwave for 30-45 seconds on high.
- 1-1/2 cups frozen shredded hash browns
- 3 eggs
- ⅔ cup milk
- ½ cup mayonnaise
- ⅓ cup diced green onion
- 1-1/2 cup shredded cheddar plus ½ cup for topping
- ½ cup chopped ham
- ¼ teaspoon Paula Deen Seasoning, which is ¼ cup salt, 1 Tablespoon each of pepper and garlic powder
- salt and pepper to taste
- Prepare 15 muffin cups with vegetable spray. Load each muffin cup with ⅛ cup of hash browns and mash lightly to compress. Bake in 400-degree oven for 25 minutes or until brown around edges.
- Meanwhile, stir together remaining ingredients. Remove pans from oven and fill each cup with ¼ cup egg mixture. Bake in 375-degree oven until set...15-20 minutes. Remove from oven.
- Sprinkle each cup with shredded cheddar and a sprinkling of salt and pepper to taste. Return to oven until cheese is melted, 1- 2 minutes.
- These taste really good leftover for the next day. Just re-heat in microwave 30-45 seconds on high.
These quiche cups are very good for lunch with Nutty Orange Feta Salad. Drooling allowed!
