Italian Veggie Quiche Muffins

These crustless egg muffins are quick to make and a pleasure to eat! Baked with seasoned champignons and shallots, as well as nourishing kale and cherry tomatoes, they are packed with vitamins and minerals, as well as tons of protein from the joint forces of the egg, Laughing Cow cheese, and shredded cheddar sprinkled on top. Pesto sauce makes a delicious addition and rounds out the savory Italian flavors. A low-calorie, low-carb and scrumptious breakfast or brunch recipe, these delectable morsels are not to be missed!
