Valentine’s Day is approaching quickly, and every year I like to create a new Valentine’s breakfast creation. This year (with the help of my ingenious 7 year old daughter) we created delicious and adorable individual crust-less heart quiches. The key is finding a heart shaped muffin tin (either silicon or metal). They seemed to be everywhere this year – either in a circular shape (which I found) or 2 rows of 3 hearts. They are really fun, and more uses than just for desserts! Recipe is written for 2-3 quiches, double the recipe for 4-6.
- 2 large eggs
- 2 tbsp milk
- 1 tbsp finely diced green pepper
- 1 tbsp finely diced onion
- Pinch of salt and pepper
- 2 tbsp grated light sharp cheddar (or other cheese of choice)
- 2 slices of bacon, cooked, drained, and then cut lengthwise in half.
- Grease a 6-heart cavity pan (I found a Wilton 6-heart pan at Sears, but there are other pans available – silicon as well)
- Whisk together eggs, milk, green pepper, onion, salt, pepper and cheese together in a bowl.
- Divide egg mixture equally among 2 or 3 cavities (depending on the size of your pan). I just did two, but I have to admit the quiche puffed up quite high! I will do 3 next time.
- Bake at 350 for 10-15 minutes until slightly golden on top and fully cooked through.
- Remove from pan and place on a plate with a bacon arrow.
- Serve to your sweetheart!
