Mushroom Onion Quiche Bites

Mushroom Onion Quiche Bites -

These tiny golden pucks of deliciousness score A+ on taste, ease and nutrition. Caramelized onions, mushrooms and eggs are among my favorite things to put in my mouth even on a bad day, and stirred together with chicken chunks and coconut milk and baked for 15 minutes into tiny, savory snacks? WIN. Win, win, win.  

By the way, I love photographing things in my mini muffin pan. The photos always turn out so geometrical, check out the fun I had with my Mini Matcha Muffins:

Anyway, as usual these are dairy-free, grain-free, Paleo… whatever you like to call it. These could easily accommodate the addition of whatever veggies you’ve got in the fridge, although if you add volume you’ll need two muffins tins because this recipe as is fits perfectly in a 24-cup mini muffin tin. 

Go on, whip these up for breakfast this week.

  3. Melt the ghee or bacon/duck fat in a medium [url href=”” title=”Cast-Iron Skillet”]skillet[/url] over medium-low heat. Thinly slice the onions and cook in the skillet until very soft and brown, stirring occasionally to avoid singeing (approximately 20 minutes).
  4. Remove onions to a medium mixing bowl to cool.
  5. Whirl the mushrooms in the food processor or dice very fine. Cook in the skillet until soft and all of the liquid has evaporated (approximately 15 minutes). Add to the onions in the mixing bowl.
  6. Once the mushrooms and onions have cooled, add the chicken, coconut milk, salt and pepper.
  7. Whisk in the eggs, then spoon into the muffin tin.
  8. Cook in the preheated oven for 15 minutes until just set. Remove and let sit 10 minutes, serve warm.

It’s hilarious that we both have been developing egg recipes. Although I bow to your superior 12 eggs! And sad to hear about the egg intolerance, hopefully some time off will heal.

Are these freezeable at all? I want to do some food prepping today for the next few weeks and these look delicious!

Hmmm, never frozen them before! Not sure how the eggs would respond to freezing and thawing…

These were a big hit at my ladies’ breakfast! I added green onions and diced red bell peppers, plus I used only coconut oil, both in the muffin pan and to cook the vegetables. I used a large muffin pan so they needed 25 minutes. Also absolutely love the silicone muffin pan! I’ll be making these often now.

I’m so glad that these turned out better than the mini quiches! Yes, the silicon muffin pans save clean-up time for sure. 🙂
