Notes

Source of recipe: Chef Kevin Rathbun

Ingredients

  • Nonstick cooking spray
  • 1/2 teaspoon olive oil
  • 1 leek, cleaned and finely chopped ((about 1 cup) )
  • 1 cup reduced-fat shredded Cheddar cheese, divided
  • 1/3 cup sun-dried tomatoes, minced plus additional for garnish
  • 1 cup fat-free lactose-free milk
  • 2 eggs lightly beaten
  • 1/2 teaspoon fresh or dried thyme ((optional))
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350°.
  • Lightly spray a 12-cup regular-size muffin pan with nonstick cooking spray.
  • Heat oil in a small skillet over medium heat. Add leeks and cook until softened, stirring frequently, about 5 minutes. Divide leeks among muffin cups and top evenly with 2/3 cup cheese and sun-dried tomato.
  • Blend milk, egg, thyme, salt and pepper in a blender or food processor for 20 seconds. Pour milk mixture over cheese in muffin cups and top evenly with remaining cheese. Bake 20-22 minutes or until tops and edges are browned. Cool in pan for 3 minutes; serve warm or cold. Top with additional pieces of sun-dried tomato and fresh thyme, if desired.
