School mornings are busy enough. Why not enjoy some of these no-crust quiche. Make ahead and freeze #bacon

I hate making breakfast on school mornings. Most mornings my kids either grab a bowl of cereal or a piece of toast. Sometimes they might even eat a piece of fruit or yogurt. But VERY VERY rarely do I make something like pancakes, french toast or eggs.

This is the little piece of mom-guilt I have lived with for many years. It’s busy enough getting everyone up and awake in the morning (that includes myself) and making sure they all walk out the door with lunches and homework, that “cooking” breakfast becomes the furthest thing from my mind. Until they are all off at school and see the remains of what they all ate for breakfast. And the mom-guilt kicks in.

So, what’s a mom to do?

I’ve got a solution for you!!! Or at least for me, because YOU probably are good at making breakfast??

These no-crust bacon and cheese quiche are MY answer. Each batch makes about 10 muffins sized quiche, so you can certainly double (triple!) the recipe if you desire. But here’s the best part.

You can put these in a big freezer safe ziploc bag so in the morning you put the quiche on a plate, microwave it for 30 seconds. And VOILA. A filling breakfast that will take away ALL traces of mom guilt.

And, your kids will thank you too.

Studies show kids who eat breakfast have higher test scores and better class participation. I truly need to be a better example and role model for my kids. This may surprise some of you who know me well, but I’ve started eating breakfast in the morning. True, it’s only Greek yogurt and coffee….but that’s a start. However, now that I have a freezer full of these quiche, and they only take 30 seconds, I have no excuses anymore!

You can totally customize these to YOUR preferences too. Take out the bacon and add in some spinach. Or fill them with veggies like green pepper, mushroom, and leeks. Seriously, the possibilities are endless.

Did I mention yet that these are great for dinner too? Or after school snacks?

I just went from dead beat mom to SUPER mom. I’ll take that title, haha!

  1. I do have time to make the kids breakfast, but one insists on cereal and the other is back to toast, much to my distress, however, made these this morning and the older one surprised me by taking 2 to school!! Wrapped in foil, they might still be warm… have frozen the rest and hope they’ll try when they get home from school. I love quiche, but girls no so keen. Hubby and my favourite at the mo is rocket parmesan and eggs, plus pastry. But can’t go past bacon egg and cheese (Lorraine) as it brings back many family picnic memories.
    Thanks lovely pic and great inspiration!

  2. Yum! I just made a double batch of these- broccoli cheddar and spinach mozzarella (we’re not huge bacon fans). Quick question (not sure if it has been asked yet! I didn’t have time to read all the comments): can I use baking cups (like for cupcakes) for these? I used a nonstick muffin pan and cooking spray and they still stuck to the pan and were a nightmare to get out! Eating two now to “taste test” 😉 and they are amazing! Thank you for the recipe!!

    1. I think it would probably stick to the wrappers. Odd that baking spray didn’t work, mine popped right out of the pan (I use a pampered chef metal cupcake tin).

  3. you can made french toast ahead, freeze it and just pop it in the toaster for breakfast, same with pancakes. does not work well if there are things like chocolate chips or fruit in the toast or pancakes, plain works best. Add your favorite toppings or sprinkle with powdered sugar and some coco powder. Add a small scoop of frozen yougurt to steamy oatmeal, it will cool it down for little ones and leave a creamy add to that the kids see as a treat.

  4. These look really good! I don’t have kids but I still love make-ahead breakfasts that you can freeze. I will be making some for myself!

  5. Bite-size and perfect for a quick early-morning breakfast! So many options to switch it up too. Love it!

  6. I hear ya on the school morning… I’m dragging and really don’t feel like making elaborate breakfast! This is one awesome breakfast idea, Aimee! Love that you can freeze them!

  7. So fancy! I love that they can be stored in the freezer…that basically takes away any excuse to not eat a healthy breakfast!

  8. Damn delicious!!!
    the photograph is really seducing me….
    i guess i’ll be really glad starting a day with your quiche too!

  9. I have never made a cooked breakfast for my kids during the week and we homeschool, so have more time than the typical family. We usually just grab cereal, yogurt & fruit, or oatmeal each morning. I save the pancakes and such for the weekends and sometimes for dinner. Love these mini quiche though and will have to make some for the freezer!

  10. Are you ready for me to cry? Because I’m about to cry. No one in my family likes quiche! It’s a total disgrace and is a further reminder that I must have been adopted into a family of aliens. It’s CRAZY. But I, on the other hand, LOVE quiche and find it to be so irresistibly addictive. And I’m obsessed with these baby quiches, which are pint-sized for JUST ME! *rejoices*

    1. Oh no! I think you need to ditch that family and move to Chicago 🙂 Seriously though, keep a stash of these in your freezer for emergency quiche cravings!

  11. This is perfect for when you don’t have time to scramble up some eggs and bacon. Love how cute they are too!
