Foodie Friday: Vegetable Quiche

 Click on picture to enlarge
I am joining Michael at Designs by Gollum for Foodie Friday.  She is having some fantastic giveaways for her first anniversary. Go to the link above to enter and win.  Her site is wonderful you won't be sorry for checking it out!  Lots of great recipes.
I decided it was time to eat a little healthier.  I dug out some cookbooks and found this tasty treat.  They can be taken in a lunch bag, or frozen so they are very versatile.  I like them because they are so easy and I can make something healthy for myself  while the guys keep eating their food.  
Vegetable Quiche Cups To Go
1 pkg. of frozen spinach chopped (10 oz.)
3/4 cup (3 large) eggs
3/4 cup reduce fat cheese (I used mozzarella)
1/4 cup diced green bell peppers ( I used baby portabella mushrooms instead)
1/4 cup diced onions
3 drops of hot-pepper sauce optional

I couldn't find spinach in a box.  I just piled a huge pile of fresh spinach on a plate and sprinkled it with water and microwaved it 1-2 minutes on high.  (It ends up looking like a box of spinach thawed).  If you find a box of spinach microwave on high 2 1/2 minutes. Drain the excess liquid. Line up 12 foil muffin cups in a muffin pan and spray them with cooking spray.
Combine the eggs, cheese, peppers, onions, and spinach in a bowl.  Mix well. Divide evenly among the muffin cups.  Bake at 350 degrees for 20 minutes, until a knife in the center comes out clean. 
Quiche cups can be frozen and reheated in the microwave. Any combination of appropriate vegetables and reduced fat cheese may be used.
