So…can we talk about Dancing With The Stars for a sec??

I have to admit that I’ve never really watched the show until this season. But when my friend Meg was in town a few weeks ago, we randomly decided to do a girls’ night in and spotted DJ Tanner (!!!) and Winnie from The Wonder Years on the preview and decided to tune in. And DJ is now a conservative mom with 4 kids! And Winnie writes girl-power books about math! And Drew Carey is, like, genuinely cool. And those Olympic ice dancers are so darn humble. And Amy Purdy’s story and dances leave me absolutely speechless each week. And I kind of think that Carrie Ann Inaba is one of the coolest judges ever.

Oh. And I basically cry every single week.

Seriously, why didn’t anyone warn me that this show is such a tearjerker?? I swear, it’s turning into my new Parenthood.

Anyway, since I’m rarely home in the evenings, this show has turned into my new Tuesday morning tradition on Hulu. Which means that said star-crushing, and crying, and cheering, and — yes — much more kitchen dance partying is happening in my kitchen while I cook breakfast. Which happened to be the case on the day that I made these adorable little spinach artichoke quiche cups. (That also happen to be gluten-free!)

They were so good that I just might have done a little flying leap across the kitchen after my first taste. ;)

I mean, let’s be real — it’s kind of impossible not to love something spinach-artichoke-y. It’s like mac and cheese. Peas and carrots. Milk and cookies.

Spinach and artichokes are just kind of made for each other. (Like, um, Merill and Maks in this week’s episode of Dancing? Hello, chemistry!!)

The good news about this spinach and artichoke quiche recipe, though, is that it literally just takes a few minutes to whip up. No crust necessary. And you can totally freeze these guys for future breakfasts on-the-go. Here’s the how to:

  1. Hello! These were delicious and very easy! I added some crumbled bacon for my own touch!

  2. Hi, i was just wondering how long will they be good frozen ? and do you have a good soup recipe for a person who wants to loose weight . Ill eat just about anything

    - john

    • They should be good frozen for up to 2 months. I also recommend my 5 Ingredient Chicken Chili Soup for those looking for a lighter option that’s big on flavor.

      - Ali

  3. These look wonderful! I’m going to be making these in mini fashion with feta and sun-dried tomato for a potluck dinner this weekend. Thanks for the recipe – can’t wait to give it a try!

    - Nate

  4. Looks delicious but lacking nutritional info

    - Lisa Jarvis

  5. I made this for a potluck breakfast at work this morning, and it was a hit! I mixed it last night, refrigerated it, then baked it this morning in a greased pie plate instead of muffin tins, at 375 for 35 minutes. Fantastic!

    - Hilary

  6. Just popped them in the oven. Substituted feta for mozzarella. How do you reheat them from frozen? Mmmm they smell so good.

    - Anna

  7. Hey Ali, these look delicious! You mentioned the possibility of freezing the quiches so I was wondering, what do you think is the best method to reheat the frozen quiches? Thanks!

    - Chelsea

  8. I love the idea of having a frozen batch on hand. What’s the best way to warm them up? Should I defrost them first?

    - Elisa

    • I would defrost then heat them back up in the oven at 300 F until warm. Or if you’re in a hurry, you could also pop them in the microwave.

      - Ali

  9. Think I’ll add some chopped portabella mushrooms… Has anyone tried that?

    - Lisa

  10. Aren’t these just the cutest!!!? I will absolutely be trying these on my next Lazy Sunday! Pinned!

    I don’t watch Dancing with the Stars either but I also spotted “Winnie” and isn’t it crazy how she looks almost the same?! !

    - Lindsey @ American Heritage Cooking

  11. Can we substitute fresh spinach?

    - Cindy

  12. I bet these would be great to freeze for a quick morning breakfast!

    I haven’t watched Dancing with the Stars but maybe I should tune in. I need a new show to get lost in!

    - kelley {mountain mama cooks}

  13. Love the idea of having these in the freezer for a quick on-the-go brekky or lunch. I occasionally (OK, perhaps a little more often than occasionally!) grab a spinach-feta pie from the bakery near work (I’m in Greece so they’re super delicious and tempting!), but this spinach and artichoke beauty would definitely be a much healthier option.
    P.S. Do you have the ice-dancing version of dancing with the stars? Love that too!

    - Helen @ Scrummy Lane

  14. Yes please!!! I got out of my morning egg cup habit but I need to get back in asap. LOVE artichokes!

    - Liz @ The Lemon Bowl

  15. I’m not a great cook, but I love spinach and artichokes! Does the direction, “frozen spinach, thawed and drained” mean the sam thing as “thawed and squeezed dry?”

    - Teri

  16. WOW! Looks delicious. I will make this in about 6 hours. Thanks!

    - L

  17. Anything with spinach and artichoke has me hooked! I have yet to have them with eggs so I know what I am making for brunch this weekend!

    - Meg @ The Housewife In Training Files

  18. Looks delicious!! Can a silicone large muffin pan be used to this? I have one by haven’t cooked with it yet. A little uncertain about using it in the oven. Thanks!

    - jenny

  19. 1. I have been a DWTS fan for many seasons and I love that you are now hooked! I have actually had the opportunity to go to tapings and it’s pretty cool! Who do you think is going to win?

    2. I agree that spinach and artichokes go together like milk and cookies, mac and cheese!

    3. Pinning these, because they will be the perfect breakfast to make ahead of time when I know I have guests in town!

    - Julie @ Girl on the Move

    • Whaaa? I’m so jealous that you were able to see it live! That’s now on my bucket list. Well, that and dancing with Derek. ;)

      - Ali
