Real men do eat quiche--or will when it's stuffed with Canadian bacon and cheese. Served over salad, these quiches make an elegant lunch or a quick, healthy dinner. You can also make them in advance, store them in the refrigerator, and let the kids have one or two for a healthy after-school snack.
Active Time: 30 Minutes
Total Time: 40 Minute
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
Coat 12 nonstick (1/2-cup) muffin cups with cooking spray (see Tip).
Whisk eggs, egg whites and buttermilk (or milk) in a large bowl. Stir in scallions, cheese, bacon and 1/2 teaspoon pepper. Divide the egg mixture evenly among the prepared muffin cups.
Bake until the eggs are cooked and beginning to brown on top, 25 to 28 minutes. Run a knife around edges to loosen the quiches from the cups.
Meanwhile, whisk lemon juice, oil, mustard and pepper to taste in a large bowl. Add salad greens to the bowl; toss to coat with the dressing. To serve, divide the salad among 6 plates and top with tomato wedges and 2 quiches each.
Make Ahead Tip:
Wrap each quiche in plastic and refrigerate for up to 3 days or freeze for up to 1 month. To reheat, remove plastic, wrap in a paper towel and microwave on High for 30 to 60 seconds. | Equipment: Muffin pan with 12 (1/2-cup) muffin cups
