These Crustless Jalapeño Mini Quiches are the perfect bite-sized appetizer to serve at your next family gathering and are so easy to make!
Ingredients and substitutions:
- Eggs – you can also use just the egg whites or an egg substitute if preferred.
- Broccoli – veggies like chopped kale, bok choy or even asparagus would be great in this recipe.
- Red peppers – any colour of bell pepper can work. Green and yellow will offer a bit of a sweeter taste.
- Jalapeños – serrano pepper or poblano peppers are good substitutes if you enjoy the heat. If spice isn't your thing, you can swap for some additional bell peppers instead.
- Red onions – yellow or white onions will also work. You can use leeks or chives if you don't have any onions on hand.
- Shredded cheddar cheese – you can shred the cheese by hand or use the pre-shredded cheese. Any other hard cheese can work too, like shredded gouda or Colby cheese.
