Muffin Tin Quiche


2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
1 1/2 cups finely diced red-skinned potatoes
1 cup diced red onion
3/4 teaspoon salt, divided
8 large eggs
1 cup shredded smoked cheddar cheese
1/2 cup low-fat milk
1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
1 1/2 cups chopped fresh spinach


Step1: Preheat oven to 325 degrees F. Coat a 12-cup muffin tin with cooking spray.

Step 2: Heat oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add potatoes, onion and 1/4 teaspoon salt and cook, stirring, until the potatoes are just cooked through, about 5 minutes. Remove from heat and let cool 5 minutes.

Step 3: Whisk eggs, cheese, milk, pepper and the remaining 1/2 teaspoon salt in a large bowl. Stir in spinach and the potato mixture. Divide the quiche mixture among the prepared muffin cups.

Step 4: Bake until firm to the touch, about 25 minutes. Let stand 5 minutes before removing from the tin.


To make ahead: Individually wrap 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 tin with 12 (1/2-cup) cups
