"I first served these miniature quiches at a family brunch and chose the name of the recipe with a nod to Dr. Seuss because it appeals to kids."


3 eggs
1tablespoon all-purpose flour
2tablespoons butter, melted
1cup 2% reduced-fat cottage cheese
1 1/2cups shredded sharp Cheddar
1/8teaspoon hot pepper sauce, or to taste
1cup spinach leaves, loosely packed
8 thin slices ham


  1. Preheat oven to 350F. Grease 8 muffin tins or 4-ounce ramekins.
  2. Combine eggs, flour, butter, cottage cheese, Cheddar and hot sauce in a food processor or blender. Process until well blended. Add spinach and pulse briefly. Do not over-process; green flecks should be visible.
  3. Line muffin tins with ham slices, pressing down with fingertips. Pour about 1/3 cup egg mixture into each tin.
  4. Bake 20 to 25 minutes, or until a wooden toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
