Cutie Quiches

Makes 6 Servings

3 slices 100% whole wheat bread, cut into 1/2-inch cubes
6 large eggs, beaten
One 10-ounce box frozen cooked winter squash, thawed
1 cup preshredded reduced-fat Cheddar cheese
1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
2 tablespoons real bacon bits or 2 slices cooked bacon, crumbled

Preheat the oven to 375°F. Generously coat a 12-cup muffin pan with nonstick cooking spray. Divide the bread cubes evenly and place into the muffin cups. Set aside.
Whisk together the eggs, squash, Cheddar cheese, Parmesan cheese, and bacon bits. Using a 1/4-cup measuring cup, pour the egg mixture into each of the muffin cups.
Bake until golden brown, about 22 minutes.
Variation – For a sweeter alternative, replace the 3 slices of whole wheat bread with 3 slices of whole grain cinnamon raisin swirl bread (we like Pepperidge Farm) and replace the bacon bits with 2 tablespoons of brown sugar.
