Busy weekdays can make it hard to find the time to plan and cook good for you food that you actually want to eat, so I decided to challenge myself to come up with one make-ahead meal a week to ensure that I always have something healthy and delicious on hand. The crust on these easy quiche cups comes from a fab recipe by Cookie + Kate , and not only is it gluten free, but it’s also dairy free (using olive oil instead of butter to hold it together). I like to line the muffin tin with little squares of parchment paper (I just cut these out of parchment paper pan sheets), but you could also use parchment paper baking cups. Feel free to swap the filling ingredients out for any of your favorites. These quiche cups are great for a quick breakfast, brunch, or even to make ahead for a party, and with the simple and adorable pig decorations they are sure to be a crowd pleaser :).

This recipe can be found at Cookie + Kate. It also makes a perfect amount for the quiche cups, I only changed it ever so slightly by removing the garlic for mine, but of course you could leave it in. Please see the directions below for baking times and temperatures as I have adjusted these to fit the size.
1 TB unrefined coconut oil, melted (optional)
8 large eggs
1/2 cup full fat coconut milk
1/2 teaspoon sea salt
2 1/2 cups spinach or arugula
Olive oil for cooking the greens and mushrooms
1 cup of your favorite mushrooms, cleaned and sliced into small sections
1/4 cup goat cheese, shredded cheddar, or any kind of cheese you like
2 Tablespoons fresh or dried chives
Uncured deli style ham (I used Applegate Uncured Black Forest Ham which is nitrite and nitrate free, and also humanely raised)
BPA free black olives (both Trader Joe’s and Whole Foods store brands are BPA free)
Small teardrop or triangle cookie cutter (for the ears)
Large and small round piping tips (for the snouts and eyes)
Oh my gosh these are SO CUTE! These would look perfect tucked into a bento box! Such a creative idea 🙂
