Eating breakfast is great, but sometimes making breakfast is a hassle. When you have a whole houseful of family members who need to be up at different times with different tastes it can be difficult to make sure that everyone is eating a balanced breakfast before they run off their separate ways. I’ve found the easiest way to solve this problem, other than filling up on sugary cereals or “instant” breakfasts, is to do a little prep work the night before so that in the morning you can just reheat and serve. I began by trying to do some simple quiches.
I decided to try this recipe using small phillo cups that you can buy at any grocery store. They are fun, bite sized, and a great finger food for hubby, who is often eating while running out the door, or Callie, who is often eating while running around the house looking for her shoes. Plus they are freakin adorable!
They are so incredibly easy and require very little prep time that you don’t even need to bake them the night before if you have an extra 15 minutes in the morning. This is all I used for these:
You could easily fill these with any meat or vegetables that you wanted to. I would just make sure to precook everything before adding it to keep the baking time low and the shells from getting too brown. Try mixing fruit or jams in with it for a sweet change. This is a fun change from the ordinary, and I bet your kids would love to help you make them, too!
