It was another cooking day with the boys, Micah and Asher. As with their big brother Noah, I always try to have them make a wide variety of foods that are simple and fun. Noah made a Denver omelette the other day Breakfast for Lunch, so I thought it would be fun if Micah and Asher did something similar. They made mini quiches and some pan-fried potatoes. Who knows, maybe we will have a cook-off one day, brothers vs brother. 🙂 It was their first experience with purple potatoes too, though they insisted they were beets. 🙂
As you can see by their smiles, they liked their recipes.
The potatoes were just tossed in olive oil, salt, pepper, parsley and some garlic seasoning. The only difference between their potatoes and Noah’s potatoes were that the boys cooked them on the stove top in a skillet and Noah grilled his on his George Forman grill.
The mini quiches, were similar to Noah’s omelette too, but we baked them in muffin pans in the oven.
Preheat the oven to 350* F.
Spray a muffin pa with cooking spray.
Just like any quiche, you can add whatever you like to the filling. I just had the boys make it simple and we used things I know they like.
3 TBSP milk
1/2 cup bell peppers, diced small – we used red and orange this time because the boys like those better
1/2 cup cooked bacon or ham diced small
1/2 cup tomato, diced small
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper
1/2 tsp garlic seasoning
1/2 cup shredded cheese of your choice
Add the diced ham, tomatoes and peppers to the bottom of each muffin tin.
Whisk the eggs, milk and seasonings together and pour over the toppings in each muffin tin. Fill to only about 3/4 full. Top with the cheese.
Bake for about 20-25 minutes, or until the eggs are puffy and the center is set and does not jiggle. Remove from the oven and let stand for about 5 minutes before removing them from the muffin pan.
These mini quiches and potatoes were gobbled up quickly and both got big thumbs up from both Micah and Asher, as well as mom and their big sister. I think they were a hit. 🙂
Keep it fun and make it interesting and stay safe and stay well in the process. ‘Til next time.
