Ham and asparagus quiche in muffin form! These little breakfast bites are perfect for meal prep, they’re great served hot, cold, or at room temperature, and they’re easy to grab and go.
Breakfast seems to be a big struggle for a lot of us who are following a low carb diet.
Honestly, I think people just get sick and tired of eating the same old scrambled eggs day after day.
I get you, although I do LOVE me some scrambled eggs – especially with a bit of whipped cream cheese tossed in at the last minute. So amazing.
I like having breakfasts on hand for busy mornings though and these little ham and asparagus quiche bites are perfect for that! We like them both hot and cold, so they work even if you don’t have a second to pop them in the microwave. Just dig right in!
How to make ham and asparagus quiche muffins:
To start, chop up some fresh asparagus into bite sized pieces and pop it in a little bowl with a bit of water. Cover tightly with plastic wrap and pop this in the microwave. We’re just going to lightly cook the asparagus to soften it up a bit.
Next, you’ll want to whisk together some fresh eggs and heavy cream with a bit of salt and pepper.
Once that mixture is combined, stir in some diced ham, grated swiss cheese, and the steamed asparagus.
Pour the mixture evenly between 8 muffin wells and pop this in the oven for 20 minutes.
As I said, these are delicious served hot or cold. I’ve been known to grab them straight from the fridge for a quick snack many times.
They’re so filling and they’re packed with flavor thanks to the ham, swiss, and asparagus.
It’s hard to go wrong with these little egg bites!
