Mini Spinach Feta Quiche

A mini spinach feta quiche that is crust-less and baked in a muffin tin. Great for breakfast, brunch, a light lunch, picnic or snack.

These low carb and gluten free spinach feta can be called a crust-less quiche or a savoury egg muffin. They are the same thing and whatever you end up calling them, they are still delicious. I love how simple they are to make too.

If you were looking for a breakfast on the go, then these would fit the bill perfectly. Make a batch of them the night before and come the morning when you are cursing that snooze button and about to sprint out the door to work, grab a couple of these. Tasty and satisfying they should hopefully perk you up and start your day on a healthy one too!

When baking mini quiches, I allow about 75% of one egg per muffin. This batch makes 9 muffins so I used 7 eggs. If you wanted a smaller batch adjust accordingly. Or just simply beat a few eggs and as you are pouring half way through the batch it should become clear whether you have enough egg mixture. Add another egg if need be.

I love the flavour combination of spinach and feta cheese and often have a tub of feta in the fridge. Add some nutmeg and lots of black pepper you have a delicious filling for omelettes too! I often used nutmeg with spinach as I find it enhances its flavour for me but that can be a personal taste. It you don’t like it omit it.

The million-dollar question when making a spinach dish is how big a bag of spinach do you need to buy to get more than a thimbleful of spinach once it’s cooked? I purchase the biggest bags I can find, filling out the fridge shelves. I prefer to use fresh spinach but you could use frozen if none is available. You would have to squeeze every drop of water out of it though as you don’t want a soggy muffin.

When these mini spinach feta quiches are baking, they will briefly rise like a mini soufflé. I was watching them bake in the oven (nothing on television that day) and got so excited about the wonderful photos I could take with them puffed up like mini quiche towers. I took them out of the oven, turned my back to grab my camera and as if by magic then had deflated to normal size. I felt rather like a burst balloon. However, the delicious taste of them cheered me up. I loved these cold too and snacked on a couple for breakfast the next day.

    Would this recipe work for 12 cups? The right proportion of ingredients? Also, could you use frozen spinach or is raw best? Thanks!! Can’t wait to try these for my daughter’s bridal shower!!

      Hi, frozen or raw both work fine. You could happily make this for 12 cups. Increase the eggs by about 3 (depending on the size of the eggs). As for the filling increase by just under a quarter. As you put the filling into the tin you will see if you have to add any more. Hope you enjoy the bridal shower!

    Can you tell me what the process would be for freezing these and cooking them later?

      I’d wrap them up in clingfilm before freezing. Defrost at room temperature and pat them with a kitchen towel to make sure you mop up any extra water. Heat up in the oven for 5 minutes. Happy baking!

    These are great low carb breakfast option. Very easy to make which is nice. I do agree with previous poster on mixing in the salt, pepper and nutmeg in the eggs and cream to evenly distribute the spices through out the quiches. But I enjoyed this recipe. I have it saved to my favorites now.

    Delicious! Nice to have more choices when following Keto lifestyle! Just a few changes: put spinach/spring onion mixture in muffin cups, next sprinkle feta even on top, add S and P and nutmeg to eggs and cream so the seasonings are more distributed.
    Totally enjoyed your recipe!
