As a mom, I understand the importance of a balanced breakfast. Especially with the beginning of a new school year, it’s essential for kids to get that morning boost so they’re full of energy and ready to learn. By all accounts, a great breakfast is the start to a great day. This doesn’t mean that mom needs to wake up hours earlier just to slave over the stove groggy eyed and bleary, however.
So I can enjoy my morning as well, I picked up a box of Jimmy Dean® Frozen 4 ct Croissant Sausage Egg Cheese at Meijer. Made from real eggs, sausage, and cheese, Jimmy Dean® Croissant Sausage Egg Cheese is a complete and satisfying breakfast in 3 minutes or less. To be honest, I can’t keep enough of these around. My kids love them!
And because lunch is important, too, I also grabbed a pack of Hillshire Farm® Naturals Slow Roasted Turkey at Meijer, as well. Hillshire Farm® Naturals is an all natural lunchmeat with the delicious taste you want to come back to.
While great for a quick and easy sandwich that you can feel good about, I had another idea that would combine both our breakfast and lunch favorites in delicious and perfect for on the go Turkey and Asparagus Quiche Muffins!
These Turkey and Asparagus Quiche Muffins are a perfect compliment to the Jimmy Dean® Croissants.
Which we love because they’re easy enough for my oldest son to make on his own.
Not only are the croissants easy and delicious, but what’s really great about the Turkey and Asparagus Quiche Muffins is that you can make them ahead, then freeze and reheat at any time, too. So if you feel like having these muffins at lunch with a Hillshire Farm® Naturals Slow Roasted Turkey sandwich, it’s there ready and waiting and so, so good! And still easy enough for my son to make on his own.
For our Turkey and Asparagus Quiche Muffins, you’ll need dice fresh asparagus into bite-size pieces and saute. Also, chop up a few slices of the Hillshire Farm® Naturals Slow Roasted Turkey lunchmeat. Set aside while you get your egg mixture ready.
For the egg mixture, you’ll need eggs, heavy cream, milk, parsley, shredded Colby Jack cheese, salt and pepper. Whisk it all together then pour in the muffin tins about 3/4 full. Add a few pieces of the asparagus and chopped lunchmeat. Top with more cheese.
Bake the Turkey and Asparagus Quiche Muffins 20-25 minutes in a 350 degree oven. Then let set and gently remove by running a butter knife around each muffin. Eat warm, or let cool and store in an airtight container in the refrigerator. Reheat for several seconds in the microwave or a few minutes in a preheated oven.
And mom’s work here is done. And everyone is happy. It’s a good day!
