I had leftovers from the holidays for tonight's dinner but I came across this recipe on That Skinny Chick Can Bake and on Jovina Cooks Italian and I must have been programmed to make it because I did, despite the fact, I had no need to cook tonight.
I have no regrets. These little muffin like quiches are delicious and go with almost anything. I did make some changes to make these kosher (no meat and dairy at the same meal). I also had no mushrooms so I subbed avocado
