Get Your Quiche On - Spinach and Feta Won-ton Quiche Cups

Whether dining out or whipping up meals at home, people generally fall into two categories. People that try something new + exciting as much as possible, and people that go for the rotation of "usuals."  I like to frolic in the happy medium between the two [anyone with me?] and try anything new I can get my hands on, while still honoring my tried and true favorites.  Usually that results in me making the same recipes over and over, with little tweaks according to seasonal produce, fridge and pantry contents, and cravings.  I could probably share 50 quiche recipes with you for this reason.  Today i'll save you the egg-bardment and highlight the ones I made myself for breakfast this morning =)

I love breakfast... quiches... and anything that doesn't t require pots, pans, or a sinkful of dishes.  So by default, you already know how much I love these =)  I've been making these mini quiches like crazy for the past  year and recently decided to cut a few corners & make them even speedier!  I even turned one into a jalapeno popper!

10 minute Spinach + Feta Won-ton Quiche Cups
[make a plate for yourself or an entire tray for a crowd!]

What's in it?
2 large eggs
8 Nasoya won-ton wrappers
a handful of spinach, torn
1/2 Tbsp plain greek yogurt
1 Tbsp crumbled feta cheese
a sprinkle of dried minced onion, garlic powder, salt and pepper
top with light sprinkle of parsley and red pepper flakes
green salsa, for dipping

If you haven't invested in a mini muffin tin yet [worth it!] mold two won-ton wrappers into a cup in a normal muffin tin.  Crisis adverted ;)

Have a little extra time/ingredients?  Try These:
sauteed mushrooms, onion and melted swiss
sauteed spinach and garlic topped with fresh tomatoes, basil and feta
colorful bell peppers, zucchini, spinach and cheddar

Brontosaurus Chefs coconut milk pairs nicely with eggs if you're dairy-free! 
T-Rex Chefs ham, bacon, or crumbled turkey sausage rock in these.  Need I say more?
Glutensaurus? Chefs for gluten-free foodies, here's a recipe for GF wonton wrappers!

Quick and Easy Mini Wonton Quiche Cups with Spinach and Feta

Get Cooking!
Preheat oven to 365F.  Gently place wonton squares in a mini-muffin tray spritzed with olive oil.  Crack eggs into a coffee mug along with 1/2 tablespoon of greek yogurt and beat with a fork.  Tear spinach into small pieces and toss into the mug with the eggs along with your spices and feta.  Stir to incorporate and spoon into your won-ton cups. Bake for approx 8-10 minutes or until quiche mixtures fluffs up into a "muffin-top" and the edges of your won-ton cups are toasty + golden brown.

When time permits, I highly suggest sauteing the spinach w/ a little oil, garlic + a pinch of salt.  It amps up the flavor of the gorgeous greens and tastes absolutely heavenly!

  10. Hi Jenn! Thanks for stopping by my blog! I LOVE yours!! Your pictures are GORGEOUS!  I am totally going to give the gluten-free version of this quiche a try--it looks YUMMY!

    I am a total tweener--sometimes I get all creative and adventurous with trying out recipes and other times I stick to the standard usual suspects.  Desserts are the most fun times to get all daring because it is hard to mess up sugar. :)

  14. This is the most amazing idea and I must make this, maybe even today.  I play with wontons, quite often but never even thought of such a creative dish.

    ReplyDelete
  15. Super speedy and super cute! I am in the middle too: this week we are all about basics after all that V-Day extravaganza. Potatoes, cornmeal, cabbage, roots.

  17. Thanks for passing on the link for GF wonton wrappers!  Maybe "non-glutenvores" for the dinosaur name??  :-)

    ReplyDelete
  18. Yay happy to help + THANK YOU! That is brilliant!

    ReplyDelete
  19. Oh I love the use of won-ton wrappers.  Looks like they make it just as easy as say a pre-made phyllo cup.
    Quiche though is fantastic and the less dishes it creates the better!!!!

    Happy Thursday Jenn :)

  32. I used wonton wraps a couple weeks ago and now I am addicted to them!  They are so versatile and so easy.  My 5 year old would love these.  Breakfast for dinner is her favorite.

    ReplyDelete
  33. Ooh this looks fab! I have phyllo pastry - I could use that instead of wonton wraps I think? Looks yum!

    ReplyDelete
  34. OOooh yum. Pinning this :)

    ReplyDelete
  35. I LOVE recipes that don't require dirtying a lot of dishes too! And these look so yummy! Putting on my "make" list right now :)

    ReplyDelete
  36. This is such an egg-tastic day! The #ebwhites chat and your beautiful eggy post. Must try these. Thanks for the share!

    I fall some where in the middle too, but lean on the adventurous side. All those recipe magazines have to go to use!

    ReplyDelete
  37. You are just too much! I juts happen to have some wonton wrappers sitting in my fridge that I don't know what to do with. I knew I could come here for ideas. :) These look amazing!

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  39. did I seriously just write almost thursday? bah- FRIDAY!!!!! I am losing my mind ;)

    ReplyDelete
  40. Im going to blow your mind here- use reg muffin pan, put in some cooked quinoa and pat down, bake for 10min, fill with you eggy (or swap in soft tofu!!) stuff and bake again. Crazy good and a bit more filling. Also fab with polenta.

    ReplyDelete
  41. So cute...the slow cooker soup was a winner tonight. Thanks again for the recipe. The savory garlic and butter buns (a la cinnamon buns) recipe not so much. Oh well, can't please em all.

    ReplyDelete
  42. mmm I'm gonna have to try these out! I LOVE your recipes. I seriously love cooking - by the time I get home in the evening I make and devour whatever I choose so quickly that I am left saying... WHY can't I take cute pictures while I'm preparing it and BEFORE I eat it?! lol... Guess there is just not enough time in my days :/ 

    ReplyDelete
  43. ahhh yay!!!!! my sister made it today too and over-potatoed it into mashed potatoes! haha =) The garlic buns were a no-go? Oh man they sound awesome!!!

    ReplyDelete
  44. My dinner photos are a hot mess 99.9% of the time =) Promise!!! Weekend cooking helps me get 1-3 new recipes up and photographed for the blogs. If dinner rocks my world I'll make it again during the day so I can photograph it. So sneaky <3 Happy almost-friday Gina!!! eee!

    ReplyDelete
  45. Those are really cute. I wonder if phylo dough or pieces of tortilla would work since I have those on hand.

    ReplyDelete
  46. Totalllly! I like them with phyllo! tortillas are ok but if i'm going to use a tortilla i'm going to go all breakfast burrito up in here =)

    ReplyDelete
  47. they look really cute and quite delicious, perfect as an appetizer

    ReplyDelete
  48. These look delicious!  What a fun way to start your morning!  I think I'm the one who likes to try something new every day.  Honey Bunny would like some repeats...but I keep telling him I've moved onto a new recipe!

    ReplyDelete
  49. Beautiful idea for a party! I never heard of Nasoya won-ton wrappers (next trip to the asian shop I'll try to spot them out! :)) but I think i can use phillo pastry rectangules... I'll keep this recipe in mind!

    ReplyDelete
  50. Love this!  Great idea for a brunch spread.

    ReplyDelete
  51. I don't I could make the entire tray for a crowd, I think they would all be for me!

    These look to-die-for good.  I am going to try to make a vegan version.  Thanks for the inspiration.

    ReplyDelete
  52. OH WOW I LOVE THE COMBO!  Really good appetizer!

    ReplyDelete
  53. Yum!  Can't wait to try these this week!  Would have never thought to make quiche this way!

    ReplyDelete
  54. Oh my god, so cute! :) And I love how easy these are, perfect recipe!

    ReplyDelete
  55. Your gluten-free recipe for wonton wrappers has all-purpose flour in it. How is that gluten free?

    ReplyDelete
  56. really!? it's not my recipe or blog - I linked to what I thought was a reliable recipe I'm so sorry! When I googled it there were a lot of other options i'll hunt on down

    ReplyDelete
  57. Just checked it! It calls for "GF" all purpose flour -- Here is a popular brand that is multi-purpose and gluten-free  [

  58. I can't wait to try this recipe out asap...I just used fillo dough and my quiches were incredibly light, flaky and delicious!  Won Ton wrapper are so much easier though!!  Thanks and I hope all is well Jenn!

  64. What a really cool idea!  Lovely photos too!

    ReplyDelete
  65. Thanks Tessa! Hope you're having a rockin' Saturday!

    ReplyDelete
  66. Just wondering...would you suggest serving these warm (like just out of the oven) or could I make them earlier in the day to bring to an evening party?

    ReplyDelete
  67. I hope you get this comment -- I can't seem to find your email addy and facebook won't let me message you [boo facebook!] -- you can certainly make these ahead of time! I would under-bake them just a tad [just bake for maybe half the time or just enough so they're cooked but not golden?] and then pop them in the oven at the party for just a few minutes to finish them off! I like them best straight from the oven -- but they are actually still tasty at room temperature. I just adore hot food ;) Let me know how they turn out!! <3 Thanks Sara!
