Quick and easy rainbow peppers + feta quiche is a kid friendly breakfast that can be re-heated in seconds for a healthy meal on-the-go!!

Let me set the record straight.

If you really looked at my meal plan from last week you would notice that this weekend we have a camping weekend scheduled.

That is still sorta happening…

But instead of going up to the beautiful Rocky Mountains that are 30 minutes from my house to pitch a tent (the same one we haven’t used since pre-kids that may or may not still be usable), hike and look at all the trees doing their color changing thing, we are instead pitching a much smaller tent in our own backyard.

So we are camping – urban camping, if you will.

Which means that hubby and Ellie are sleeping in the tent and Parker and I are sleeping inside <—– when I put it that way, I am not camping at all!

Buuuuuuuutttttttt…… I am still making a ton of camp food and planning on seriously partaking in that activity.

I am giving myself a camping-in-a-tent pass this year!

Let’s back up and talk about camping pre-kids, we would pack our tiny mini cooper to the brim (inflatable mattress, french press coffee maker and down blankets were all must-have items in my book) with half camping equipment and half good things like 32 oz of pineapple infused vodka, 32oz of mint infused vodka, homemade pop-tarts, bacon and cheese quiche, 3 different bags of chips with homemade salsa and dips and of course dark chocolate with caramel sauce s’mores.

Wait.. did I just list 64oz of vodka??

I sure did!

Don’t judge, I wasn’t camping alone!! Plus I was young then:)

Anyway, the best part about my overpacking for camping was that I always had breakfast pre-made. I found that rummaging around the camp site still half drunk at 6 in the morning (because we all know you never sleep past 6 when you go camping) trying to get something/anything in your mouth in a matter of minutes was always a bad mistake!

So, I would plan ahead and make mini quiches before we left and package them up in some tinfoil. That way when I rolled out of my tent, I would just toss them into the fire and let them reheat as I made myself some super strong coffee.

((I would do the same thing with pop-tarts and this is my favorite recipe))

I am planning this weekend ‘camping’ trip the same way – minus the vodka consumption part!

So in preparation, I made these tasty and fun little quiches today so my family can enjoy them this weekend re-heated in our outdoor fire pit <——— not sure what our neighbors are going to think when they look outside and see us along with another family all huddled under blankets while sitting around a fire pit eating mini quiches at 7 in the morning!!

I’ll stop yammering about camping and get to making some mighty good quiches now!!!—->

I put to use my Beaba babycook, which has a permanent home on my kitchen counter, to chop and whisk all the ingredients so I could quickly assemble the quiche, pop them into the oven and start planning my cocktail for tomorrow night. Just because I said no vodka doesn’t mean I wasn’t not going to make a camping cocktail! I’m thinking this one is kinda camp-like and fall-like all in one.

First you toss 3 different colors of peppers into the blender section of the babycook bowl. Give it a quick pulse so the peppers chop down.

Then in goes the eggs and another quick pulse.

Next, we toss in some Greek yogurt, thyme, breadcrumbs, salt and pepper and give one more final pulse to get all the ingredients nice and incorporated. Then the fun part, we pour the egg mixture into our multi-purpose try that we once used to store baby purees in, but is now getting a second life as a lunch box for Ellie and as a quiche mold.

Finally, we toss some feta on top and maybe a few splashes of hot sauce on the ones for the grown-ups and they are ready for the oven.

Once they were cooked, I left my quiche in the multi-purpose tray, wrapped them in some tinfoil and they are now ready to rock and roll on Sunday morning in the fire.

But if you aren’t crazy and urban-camping this weekend, you can pop on the lid on your quiches and then toss them in the fridge or freezer so you can have a healthy and easy breakfast anytime you need it!

No fire pit required!

5. Pour egg mixture into multi-purpose tray, filling 2/3 of the way up. Sprinkle feta on top. Place multi-purpose tray on top of a baking sheet and place in oven and bake for 23-35 minutes or until golden brown on top.
6. Let cool for 5 minutes and serve.
7. Snap lid on multi-purpose try and store in fridge or freezer.

Yield – 7 quiches
Storage – in fridge for 5 days or freezer for 2 months
