Wonton wrappers make these mini wonton quiche so quick and easy! The perfect appetizer for holidays, brunch, or brinner!
I love breakfast. And I love eggs.
We have actually tossed around the idea of getting some chickens for eggs, just because we love them so much. I am totally game as long as I don’t have to be responsible for actually dealing with the chickens. Or chicken poop.
Growing up, people always assumed that since I didn’t live in town, I lived on a farm. I always had to explain to people that we had a dog and a cat, but I didn’t actually live on a farm. We just live in a house that’s outside of town.
It was pretty mind-blowing.
We just moved back out of town a year ago, and, I have to say, I really like it.
I’m kind of a hermit.
I just like my space, you know? I want to look out my window and not see random strangers looking back at me.
I can eat breakfasty foods all day long. My husband and I don’t agree on everything, but we kind of love all the same foods, and it’s pretty fantastic. When I run an idea by him, he’s usually right on board. And we are both lovers of the all-day breakfast.
There are so many reasons to love these little quiche. (A) They’re low calorie and individually portioned. (B) Eggs = protein = energy (and, hello, I have a 1 year old and a 3 year old). (C) Cheese.
*The brand of breakfast sausage you use is obviously going to affect the calorie count, but all turkey sausages will be pretty low calorie. You can also change up the veggies and include whatever you like.

- 12 wonton wrappers
- 4 turkey breakfast sausage links (about 125g), casings removed
- ¼ cup frozen spinach, thawed and drained
- ⅓ cup finely chopped red pepper
- 2 tbsp finely chopped green onion
- 5 large eggs
- ¼ cup milk
- ¼ tsp salt
- 1 cup shredded cheese (I use part skim mozzarella)
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
- Spray a 12 cup muffin pan with non-stick spray. Line each cup with 1 wonton wrapper (press wrapper to the sides of the pan, as high up as possible).
- In a medium pan, scramble fry breakfast sausage. Turn off heat and stir in spinach, red pepper and green onion. Set aside.
- In a medium bowl, whisk together eggs, milk and salt. Stir in cheese (or reserve and sprinkle on top).
- Spoon egg mixture into wonton cups (I got about ⅛ cup filling in each wrapper). Bake for 20 minutes or until eggs are fully set.
