This was my takeoff on mini quiches. They're still "solid" enough to be a takealong food (eat them fairly soon, though...they do contain eggs) but they're more eggy than quiche-y. THEY'RE DELICIOUS. I didn't work out any of the nutrition info except for the calories. Calories are 50-60 per Baby Omelette.

Baby Omelettes
1 c. egg substitute
1/2 c. shredded reduced-fat cheddar cheese
1/2 c. green pepper, chopped very small
1/4 c. white onions, chopped very small
2 slices turkey bacon, pulled into small "bacon bits"
cooking spray

Preheat oven to 400 degrees (F). Spray nine cups of a 12-cup muffin tin with the cooking spray. Place all other ingredients in bowl (salt to taste--approximately 1/2 teaspoon). Mix together. Spoon equal amounts into the cups of the muffin tin. Bake for 22 minutes (check at 20 minutes just in case). Baby omelettes should "spring back" when touched in the middle, or come clean when a knife is inserted in the center. Allow to cool in muffin tin for about five minutes; then lift gently with a spoon (run spoon gently around edges first to make sure nothing is sticking--it shouldn't). Eat warm or store in fridge or freezer and re-heat later.
