Ingredients

    8 ounces (225 grams) extra-lean 5%-fat ham, diced into small pieces
    1 teaspoon extra-virgin olive oil
    8 ounces mushrooms, sliced
    1/4 cup sliced scallions
    1/4 cup shredded Swiss cheese
    1 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
    5 eggs
    3 egg whites
    1 cup 1% milk

Directions

1. Position rack in center of oven; preheat to 325F. Coat a nonstick muffin tin generously with cooking spray (see Tip).

2. Add oil to the pan. Add mushrooms and cook, stirring often, until golden brown, 5 to 7 minutes. Transfer mushrooms to a bowl and let cool for 5 minutes.

3. Stir in ham, scallions, cheese and pepper.

4. Whisk eggs, egg whites and milk in a medium bowl. Divide the egg mixture evenly among the prepared muffin cups.

6. Sprinkle a heaping tablespoon of the ham mixture into each cup.

7. Bake until the tops are just beginning to brown, 25 minutes. Let cool on a wire rack for 5 minutes. Place a rack on top of the pan, flip it over and turn the quiches out onto the rack. Turn upright and let cool completely.

Tips & Notes

Make Ahead Tip: Individually wrap in plastic and refrigerate for up to 3 days or freeze for up to 1 month.
To reheat, remove plastic, wrap in a paper towel and microwave on High for 30 to 60 seconds.

A good-quality nonstick muffin tin works best for this recipe. If you don't have one, line a regular muffin tin with foil baking cups.
