“A cheesy and creamy hot dip best served in a bread bowl or spread on toasted bread.”
These Spinach and Bacon Mini Quiches are a great way to help our kids get more leafy greens in their diet. I too have green averse kids. So when I find a way to make a green food appetizing, I share it with you.
Perhaps you are thinking that a few quiches are not going to provide all the “green” nutrition a child needs in their diet. Sure, a single serving of these quiches might not be an entire day’s requirement, but they are a great start.
With an all-or-nothing mentality, one will not go far when it comes to making “yucky” foods edible. Food, like other things in life, is a choice. All we can do as parents is find ways to make things that are nutritious more appealing to our kids.
I had the opportunity to shoot a video for this recipe with my 3 year old. He called the finely shredded spinach “confetti” and the word stuck with us. When his siblings came back, he explained to them that he had made confetti eggs with bacon and cheese.
I’d like to eat him for breakfast he is so cute. He glows every time he is around food. He really surprised me and showed me that he could stand still in front of the camera and was able to follow the (easy) steps for this recipe. To see him in action, click on the video below.
Since leafy and crunchy greens are some of the most difficult foods to get our kids to eat, I often try to find alternative uses in some of our favorite recipes. I’ve shared my green smoothie recipe that doesn’t taste green, a blueberry muffin smoothie made with spinach, my broccoli nuggets recipe, and I’m currently developing a few others that will blow your kids’ palate away.
Why do I try so hard? Because I believe our children deserve it. We live in a world where food marketing campaigns have larger budgets than our children’s education and competing with foods presented in bright packaging can be a challenge.
These quiches are made in a single bowl and kids can help with the process (just watch the video). Something else I love is that they can be customized with different veggies. If you need them to be vegetarian, omit the bacon. Need to make them dairy free? Skip the cheese. I’ve even made a zesty version and they are delish!
You probably saw it in the video but I’ll tell you again. Leftovers make a great lunch! All you have to do is heat them up and send them inside a thermos or at room temperature in any lunch container. The lunch container shown with multiple compartments is a Yumbox.
