currently cooking: crustless mini quiche

Back in my college days, I relied on diet instead of exercise to keep it fit. Now, it's a healthier combo of both, but there was a time when I was hardcore believer in the South Beach Diet.

There's nothing wrong with low carb, but completely giving them up as Phase 1 of the diet requires doesn't really set you up for long term success. Still, one of the recipes I loved and still enjoy making are the Diet's Egg and Spinach Cups.

Basically, these tiny, individual quiches (made in a muffin pan) combine everything I love about the brunch staple minus the crust. They are delicious, super light and even tasty enough to be man friendly.

The ingredients are few (egg substitue, low fat shredded cheese, bell pepper, onion, spinach and hot sauce) and the prep time is next to nothing.

Essentially combine the ingredients and bake at 350 degrees for 20 minutes.

In no time flat, your breakfast/ snack/party appropriate finger food are ready to enjoy! Click here for the full recipe.
