Bacon-Broccoli Quiche Cups

Chock-full of veggies and melted cheese, this comforting and colorful egg bake has become a holiday brunch classic. For a tasty variation, try substituting asparagus for broccoli and Swiss for cheddar cheese. —Irene Steinmeyer, Denver, Colorado
  • Total Time
    Prep: 10 min. Bake: 25 min.
  • Makes
    2 servings


  • 4 bacon strips, chopped
  • 1/4 cup small fresh broccoli florets
  • 1/4 cup chopped onion
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1 tablespoon dried parsley flakes
  • 1/8 teaspoon seasoned salt
  • Dash pepper
  • 1/4 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 2 tablespoons chopped tomato


  • Preheat oven to 400°. In a skillet, cook bacon over medium heat until crisp, stirring occasionally. Remove bacon with a slotted spoon; drain on paper towels. Pour off drippings, reserving 2 teaspoons in pan.
  • Add broccoli and onion to drippings in pan; cook and stir 2-3 minutes or until tender. Add garlic; cook 1 minute longer.
  • In a small bowl, whisk eggs, parsley, seasoned salt and pepper until blended. Stir in cheese, tomato, bacon and the broccoli mixture.
  • Divide mixture evenly between 2 greased 10-oz. ramekins or custard cups. Bake until a knife inserted in the center comes out clean, 22-25 minutes.
    Freeze option: Securely cover and freeze unbaked quiche cups. To use, remove from freezer 30 minutes before baking (do not thaw). Preheat oven to 400°. Bake as directed, increasing time as necessary for a knife inserted in the center to come out clean. Cover loosely with foil if tops brown too quickly.

    This recipe is very easy but I found it a bit dry. I think a little milk might help that. It's definitely a good choice for those watching their carbs and looking for a healthy breakfast.

    I calculated 4 points on Weight Watchers using egg substitute. I will also use turkey sausage because I happen to like it. 45 pounds gone so far!!

    I don't like that the recipe calls for 3 eggs but the nutrition was calculated using egg substitute, I don't use substitute. Otherwise the flavor was very good. Next time I may substitute 3 egg whites for one whole egg.

    We are on South Beach diet and substituted turkey sausage instead of bacon, this quiche recipe is amazing.

    My mom loves this recipe! It doesn't have the carbs that most Quiches have so she can eat it without feeling guilty.
