Cook time: 60 minutes
Servings: 2


  • 1 tablespoon and 2 teaspoons wheat germ
  • 1 tablespoon ground flaxseed
  • 2 omega-3-enriched eggs
  • 2 egg whites
  • 2 tablespoons low fat milk
  • 1/8 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon finely chopped fresh tarragon
  • 1 teaspoon finely chopped jalapeno
  • 2 ounces goat cheese
  • 1 cup chopped cooked broccoli
  • 2 ounces chopped ham


  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Coat a 6-cup nonstick muffin pan with olive oil cooking spray.
  • Combine the wheat germ and flaxseed in a small bowl. Add 1 heaping teaspoon of the mixture to each muffin cup, spreading to coat the bottoms evenly.
  • Whisk the eggs, egg whites and milk in a bowl.
  • Add the garlic powder, black pepper, tarragon, jalapeno and goat cheese, and whisk until combined.
  • Stir in the broccoli and ham. Divide the mixture among the muffin cups, using 1/4 cup measures.
  • Bake 30-35 minutes on the middle rack in the oven,  or until the mini quiches are lightly browned on top and a knife inserted in the center comes out clean.
  • Let them cool in the pan on a rack for 5 to 10 minutes. Use a knife to loosen the edges from the pan, and remove the mini quiches.
