Heart Quiches with Bacon Arrows

IMG_7952

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 ย (which I found) or 2 rows of 3 hearts. ย They are really fun, and more uses than just for desserts! Recipe is written for 2-3 quiches, double the recipe for 4-6.

Ingredients:

  • 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.

Directions:

  1. Grease a 6-heart cavity pan (I found a Wilton 6-heart pan at Sears, but there are other pans available – silicon as well)
  2. Whisk together eggs, milk, green pepper, onion, salt, pepper and cheese together in a bowl.
  3. 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.
  4. Bake at 350 for 10-15 minutes until slightly golden on top and fully cooked through.
  5. Remove from pan and place on a plate with a bacon arrow.
  6. Serve to your sweetheart!
