Canadian Bacon & Scallion Mini Quiches

Real men do eat quiche--or will when it's stuffed with Canadian bacon and cheese. Served over salad, these quiches make an elegant lunch or a quick, healthy dinner. You can also make them in advance, store them in the refrigerator, and let the kids have one or two for a healthy after-school snack.

Serves 6

Prep Time 30 min

Total Time 40 min.

Ingredients

  • 5 eggs
  • 3 egg whites
  • 1 cup low-fat buttermilk, or low-fat milk
  • 1 bunch scallions, sliced
  • 1 1/2 cup shredded reduced-fat Swiss cheese
  • 6 ounces Canadian bacon, diced
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground pepper, plus more to taste
  • 2 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 2 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
  • 2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
  • 12 cups mixed salad greens
  • 2 large tomatoes, cut into wedges

Cooking Directions

Step 1

Preheat oven to 350°F. Coat 12 nonstick (1/2-cup) muffin cups with cooking spray (see Tip).

Step 2

Whisk eggs, egg whites and buttermilk (or milk) in a large bowl. Stir in scallions, cheese, bacon and 1/2 teaspoon pepper. Divide the egg mixture evenly among the prepared muffin cups.

Step 3

Bake until the eggs are cooked and beginning to brown on top, 25 to 28 minutes. Run a knife around edges to loosen the quiches from the cups.

Step 4

Meanwhile, whisk lemon juice, oil, mustard and pepper to taste in a large bowl. Add salad greens to the bowl; toss to coat with the dressing. To serve, divide the salad among 6 plates and top with tomato wedges and 2 quiches each.
