Calories 104 Protein 8g Serves 12

Ingredients:

  • 8 ounces turkey breakfast sausage
  • 1 tsp. extra virgin olive oil
  • 8 ounces mushrooms, sliced
  • 1/4 cup sliced scallions
  • 1/4 cup shredded Swiss cheese
  • 1 tsp ground pepper
  • 5 eggs
  • 3 egg whites
  • 1 cup of low-fat milk

Instructions:

  1. Position rack in center of oven and preheat to 325; coat a non-stick muffin tin generously with cooking spray.
  2. Heat a large non-stick skillet over medium-high heat. Add sausage and cook until golden brown, 6 to 8 minutes. Transfer to a bowl to cool. Add oil to the pan and then add mushrooms, stirring often, until golden brown, 5 to 7 minutes. Transfer mushrooms to the bowl with the sausage and let cool for 5 minutes. Stir in scallions, cheese, and pepper.
  3. Whisk eggs, egg whites, and milk in a medium bowl. Divide the egg mixture up evenly among prepared muffin cups. Sprinkle a heaping tablespoon of sausage mixture into each cup.
  4. Bake until the tops are just beginning to brown, 25 minutes. Let cool on a wire rack for 5 minutes. Place a rack on top of the pan, flip it over, and turn the quiches out onto the rack. Turn upright and let cool completely.

Make Ahead Tip: Individually wrap in plastic and refrigerate for up to 3 days or freeze up to one month. To reheat, remove plastic, wrap in a paper towel, and microwave on high for 30-60 seconds.

Another tip, a good quality non-stick muffin tin will work best for this recipe, otherwise line a regular muffin tin with foil baking cups. The ingredients are simple and can be substituted for what you have on hand. Try different sausages or cheeses, using a higher fat milk will cause the quiches to fluff up a little bit more.
