We all need a few life hacks
I have recently fallen in love with quiches. A couple of weeks ago I found the following link on a buzfeed.com post about things you can cook in a coffee cup. I tried it out and it turned out great. Plus add in the joy of making something yummy in under 3 minutes and you can be the happiest non-cook cook ever!
However, when I tried the recipe out I made a few minor changes. Due to the my recent fitness craze I made the following adjustments to the original recipe:
1 1/2 tablespoons milk
Ground black pepper
1/4 of a bagel (or similar amount of French bread, etc.)
I used half a slice of bran bread instead. It might not be as yummy as using a bagel or french bread but I don’t allow myself to have wheat in other form than as cereal or bran bread. So maybe you can try different breads out and let me know how it turned out.
2 teaspoons cream cheese
I used a tablespoon of Lebanese low fat cream cheese here. I plan to use cottage cheese next.
1/2 slice prosciutto or ham
This is where I’ve been creative. So far I’ve used pieces of mortadella slices, different types of kebabs, hunter beef/chicken, mushroom or pieces of vegetable for a vegetarian version of the quiche.
Fresh thyme leaves or fresh chopped chives
(This I’ve so far excluded because I don’t like mustard but if you do go ahead and let me know how it goes with the dish)
I used chilli garlic sauce instead.
The website version has around 200 calories. Mine should have fewer. Hopefully.
