Oh, breakfast. How we love you.

You’re always full of such delicious opportunity, whether we feel like something sweet and scrambled… packed with spicy flavoursatisfyingly fruity… or just plain fun

How anyone could skip this most glorious meal of the day is beyond me.

That said, a big thanks to our friend Alexandre for expanding our breakfast repertoire with this quick and easy recipe for Mini Breakfast Quiches.

Hailing from the gorgeous medieval city of Bordeaux in south-western France, our super awesome host spoiled us rotten pretty much the entire time we were there.

Together we toured the city, devouring its history and a few pieces of its famous dessert: the Cannelés de Bordeaux, (a cute little custard filled pastry with a sweet caramelised crust known in English as the French Rum & Vanilla Cake).

We even hit up the supermarkets together to buy ingredients for Alex’s homemade creations. A fun experience for two food-obsessed bloggers comparing the similarities and differences between European and Australian supermarkets.

This recipe always reminds us of binge watching episodes of Faking It on the couch with Alex (a rare luxury while on the road).

So even though we were technically banished from the kitchen while he prepared these mini breakfast quiches, we most definitely begged the details from him later.

So why do we love them so much? Well here are just a couple of reasons:

  • That crispy, crunchy, golden brown top
  • That soft, moist and totally fluffy inside
  • No pie crust pastry to worry about, so it’s lower calories than a regular quiche and way easier to make
  • Packed with veggies for extra healthy goodness (and bacon for extra delicious flavour) 😉

But I think the real reason you’ll love it is that magic combination of super filling + super light breakfast goodness that gives you the happy feels for an awesome day ahead. 

Doesn’t even matter if you serve them hot or cold. Mini Breakfast Quiches are basically guaranteed to be a winner on any breakfast table. 🙂

Also. How much do they totally look like quiche soufflés? Just sayin’…

Ingredients

  • 6 eggs
  • ½ cup sour cream or Greek natural yoghurt unflavoured
  • ½ cup cheese
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 2 rashers middle bacon diced
  • ½ brown onion finely chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic finely chopped
  • ½ cup potato finely diced
  • ½ cup sweet potato finely diced
  • ½ cup zucchini finely diced
  • 1 tbsp olive oil

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 200 degrees (celsius, yo).
  2. Crack those eggs into a mixing bowl, add your sour cream and a decent handful of cheese, and sprinkle with your perfect amount of salt and pepper. Whisk away then set aside.
  3. Heat up that olive oil over a medium heat in a decent sized saucepan. Chuck in your onion and garlic to set your kitchen on fire (not literally) with that amazing aroma. Add your chunks of potato, sweet potato and set them to cooking for a few little minutes before adding that zucchini to the mix. Yum yum.
  4. Set those veggies aside then get frying with those bacon pieces. Cook them til they’re nicely done (or crispy crunchy, whichever you prefer).
  5. Okie dokie. Pop your cooked veggies into separate ramekins, top with bacon and pour over with egg mixture.
  6. Throw them all in the oven for around 15-20 minutes, then grab them out and sprinkle with a bit of extra shredded cheese.
  7. Pop em back in and keep cooking for another 15 minutes or until golden brown and fluffy. Bonus points if they rise up like golden egg soufflés!

    Oh how we love breakfast too. Weekends especially because it’s really the only day we actually have time to prepare a proper one. And these quiches look awesome. Just the kind of thing you would wake up early on a Saturday morning for. And how adorable are those ramekins???

      We just can’t believe we’d never cooked with ramekins before! Everything you cook in them ends up looking super cute, plus they’re heaps easy to clean as well. Life is far too busy these days, there should be more lazy Sunday morning breakfasts every weekend! 😀
