    Default Mini Quiches

    Has anyone made these before? I made a recipe from one of the South Beach
    cookbooks and I don't think it would have worked as written. The recipe
    called for

    1 10 oz. box of frozen spinach
    1/4 cup chopped onion
    1/4 cup chopped green pepper
    3/4 cup shredded cheese
    3/4 cup of egg product

    You were supposed to nuke the spinach for 2 minutes and 30 seconds then
    drain the juice off. Mix in the rest of the stuff then divide evenly
    between 12 greased muffin tins and bake at 350 for about 20 minutes or until
    a toothpick came out clean.

    I did use red pepper and green onion because that is what I had. I added a
    bit of salt and pepper. But once in the muffin tins there seemed to be all
    veggies and not enough cheese or egg. I added about a teaspoon each to each
    tin then mixed in.

    They look okay after they were baked. But there is a *lot* of spinach in
    there so I'm not sure Angela will eat them. She would likely eat them
    without the spinach. I have seen similar recipes with other veggies
    but...those seem to call for egg. Hard to tell though because most use real
    eggs. I'm not sure how many eggs 3/4 of a cup would be. And most of the
    other recipes say to use silicon muffin pans or liners. We don't have those
    and I haven't seen them in the stores. I saw them online and they're not
    cheap. I did buy a non-stick pan and they seemed to pop out just fine.

    That doesn't seem like enough egg. The egg substitute I buy counts
    1/4 cup as equivalent of one egg. How many of the pieces of this was
    considered as a serving? Also, I found the silicon muffin liners in
    the cake decorating department of Michaels Arts and Craft store. HTH

    2 are a serving. They seemed very small to me but she said she was quite
    full after eating those and some cashews.

    I will look at the craft store next time we go. Thanks!

    The silicone bakeware is available here in the large chain supermarkets.
    Not a huge range and a bit dearer than the metal ware. My aunt makes
    mini quiches in small muffin pans, her recipe calls for flour and I
    actually like them better than those without. Without the flour I would
    call them frittata. My aunt usually puts various things in hers like
    bacon, corn niblets, smoked salmon etc. She makes a couple of dozen or
    so of each and freezes them for when people pop in unexpectedly.

    I think I would call these frittata too. Angela said they tasted like
    omelets. Must buy a lot more spinach and egg product. My husband is due
    home on Friday and I have a feeling that these are the sort of thing he will
    wolf. I can vary the veggies and put meat in them too. I will look at the
    grocery store today for them. The one I am going to doesn't sell a lot of
    kitchen stuff but I am sure I have seen them somewhere. Just can't remember
    where.

    That sounds good. I may give this recipe a try. I went through my e
    books and found I had the South Beach one after all. I'm not doing
    that diet, doing WeightWatchers instead, but South Beach looks like a
    good sound diet.

    I think South Beach would be good for a person who is a carb addict. I am
    not one. I think my daughter might be. But am not sure.

    I'm not a carb addict. I just try to eat a lot of vegetables and good
    quality protein. I have backed off of a lot of the carbs, though I
    still do eat a bit of them in very small amounts. I had gotten my A1c
    down to 5.0 last fall, but it has crept back up in the last couple of
    months. I really need to work on getting those numbers better.

    I love vegetables but I don't digest them well. Do not like meat at all.
