Strawberry Feta Quiche Cups

Another week, another muffin.  Except these aren’t quite muffins, they have a much fluffier egg-like texture so I am calling them quiche cups.  I was looking for a breakfast recipe with a little more protein, and I remembered the Mushroom Thyme Muffins that I made a while ago.  I modified that recipe again and ended up with a new version.

The quiche cups are still savory; the strawberries add just a hint of sweet.  I like the combination of the strawberries, feta, and walnuts.  The cottage cheese and eggs hold everything together and add some protein for staying power.  I still think there’s room for improvement though in this version.  And that’s OK, because there’s always next week….
