Broccoli and Red Pepper Quiche Cups

I realize that the holidays are over, and it would have been much better all round if I had posted this party-in-a-muffin-cup recipe a month ago, but you know what they say – better late than never.  And just think – now everyone around you is swilling down Slimfast and choking back fat-free 100-calorie snack packs while you get to eat party food.  Every. Single. Day.  HURRAH!

Broccoli and Red Pepper Quiche Cups

The original *SANE Quiche Cups were a huge hit, so it seemed only right to expand the repertoire of this perfect lunch and snack food.  The inaugural version was required to include two of my favorite veggies – leeks and mushrooms – but once I’d got that out of my system I was free to branch out into the vegetable kingdom with abandon.  I also changed the base up to include more protein in the form of Greek yogurt.

Eat them on their own.  Eat them alongside a big, fat salad.  Eat them with a veggie stir-fry.  Eat them hot straight out of the oven, or cold the next day.  Make a big batch on Sunday and have them ready to go in the ‘fridge for the week.  Eat them as a snack when you get the munchies.  Eat them hot for breakfast with some bacon.

Just eat them.  You’ll love ‘em.
