This recipe is great for an easy breakfast full of nutrients to start your day; look no further for your next lazy-brunch-in recipe!I feel less guilty when I ignore my sweet tooth and go for breakfast options that include more than just the carb/sweets food group, but lemme assure you this breakfast is anything but a compromise! The soft, earthy spinach mixed with the ooey cheddar cheese and flavorful bacon and green onions make for a delicious breakfast. Enjoy them on weekends in, or make them ahead of time for an easy breakfast during the week!
The muffin size also makes these breakfast quiches much easier to eat on the go compared to their pie-sized counterpart.
