I absolutely LOVE quiche!
I think it’s partly because it involves eggs and the fact that it’s in a pie crust.
What’s not to like!
But the pie crust does add extra calories and most quiche recipes have a lot of fat in them.
So, do I have the solution for you!

Zucchini Quiche Muffins – 2 Weight Watchers Points Plus Value
I received this recipe in the mail with my monthly Weight Watchers membership card.
I have to admit, I am not following the Weight Watchers plan at this time.
However, I plan to get back on track after the holidays.
Either way, I’d make these muffins whether I was on Weight Watchers or not.
They’re so good!
And they’re only a 2 Weight Watchers Points Plus Value.
Sneak In Zucchini and Nobody Will Know
Some people aren’t crazy about zucchini.
But I personally like it.
To be honest though, you really don’t taste the zucchini in these muffins.
So if you want to sneak in some veggies to your loved ones with these muffins, they will never know the difference.

- Yields 1 quiche per serving.
Easy to Make and Delicious
These muffins were absolute heaven!
They’re hearty and hit the spot.
They’d be the perfect thing to prepare ahead and bake on a busy morning, like Christmas morning when you don’t have time to cook a full breakfast.
Just chop the onions and zucchini the night before and store it in the refrigerator.
Then the morning you make the muffins, just mix in the remaining ingredients and bake.
What I tasted the most was the egg, cheese and onion.
It was the perfect combination.
Use Fresh Basil and Reduce the Salt
I made the mistake of not buying fresh basil.
When I bit into the muffins, I could barely taste the dried basil that I used as a substitute.
Using fresh basil would make a huge difference.
Also, be careful with the salt.
The recipe says to use kosher salt.
I didn’t have that, so I used table salt.
But 1 teaspoon was a little too much.
Next time I’ll probably reduce it to 3/4 teaspoon.
These Zucchini Quiche Muffins were a hit with my husband.
He loved them.
Whatever we had leftover, I stored in the refrigerator and just heated a few up throughout the rest of the week for breakfast.
You can also store your leftover muffins in a muffin/cupcake keeper like this Snapware 2 Layer Cupcake Keeper.
So who says muffins just have to be for bread?
Quiche muffins are the way to go.
AND they’re great for staying in control of your portion sizes.
