Recipe Ingredients

Below is a list of ingredients I used for this easy and savory muffin quiche recipe. Remember to scroll to the bottom recipe card for full measurements.

EGGS – You’ll need four large eggs.

SPINACH – Baby spinach works best. It should be chopped smaller so it’s easier to bite into. I recommend using fresh spinach and not frozen to avoid excess water and moisture.

MUSHROOMS – white button or crimini brown mushrooms will both work for these quiche muffins. Save time by using pre-sliced mushrooms which can be added straight to the pan.

CHEESE – freshly grated parmesan adds lots of flavor. You can also use shredded cheddar cheese. I don’t think mozzarella will work as the flavor is too mild.

MILK – Regular milk or heavy cream can be used.

SPICES – This recipe keeps things simple with garlic powder, salt and pepper.

Pro Tip: Do not rinse the mushrooms under water. Mushrooms act like a sponge and will absorb moisture which will make them chewy. Instead, use a damp towel to wipe off any dirt and spot-clean them.

Flavor Additions

It’s easy to customize the flavor of these muffin cups with vegetables and spices. Here are a few ideas:

KALE – Replace baby spinach with chopped kale.

BASIL – Fresh basil and eggs are always the perfect pairings. Chopped basil can be added right into the recipe.

TOMATOES – Sliced cherry tomatoes or regular tomatoes would be a great addition.

BELL PEPPERS – Red or green bell peppers add color and natural sweetness.

SPICES – Try 1/4 tsp or 1/2 tsp of some of these spices: For extra spiciness, you could add red pepper flakes or chili powder. For an herb, flavor try dried thyme and dried basil. Onion powder would add a sweet and savory flavor.

Common Questions

How long to bake quiche muffins?

These can be baked at 375F for 18-20 minutes.

Can I use milk instead of heavy cream for quiche?

Yes! Regular milk or a plant-based will work. I recommend adding a bit of cheese as the fat content will help the quiche to properly set.

Can you freeze quiche muffins?

Yes, you can although the texture may change. Reheating the oven or microwave can overcook the eggs so be sure to heat up the minimum amount.
