Real men do eat quiche--or will when it's stuffed with Canadian bacon and cheese. Served over salad, these quiches make an elegant lunch or a quick, healthy dinner. You can also make them in advance, store them in the refrigerator, and let the kids have one or two for a healthy after-school snack.

Make Ahead Tip: Wrap each quiche in plastic and refrigerate for up to 3 days or freeze for up to 1 month. To reheat, remove plastic, wrap in a paper towel and microwave on High for 30 to 60 seconds. | Equipment: Muffin pan with 12 (1/2-cup) muffin cups
5   eggs
3   egg whites
1 cup  low-fat buttermilk or low-fat milk
1 bunch  scallions, sliced
1 1/2 cup  shredded reduced-fat swiss cheese
6 ounces  Canadian bacon, diced
1/2 teaspoon  freshly ground pepper, plus more to taste
2 tablespoons  lemon juice
2 tablespoons  extra-virgin olive oil
2 teaspoons  Dijon mustard
12 cups  mixed salad greens
2   large tomatoes, cut into wedges

Tip: Use a good quality muffin tin or muffin liners.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

Coat 12 nonstick (1/2-cup) muffin cups with cooking spray (see Tip).

Whisk eggs, egg whites and buttermilk (or milk) in a large bowl. Stir in scallions, cheese, bacon and 1/2 teaspoon pepper. Divide the egg mixture evenly among the prepared muffin cups.

Bake until the eggs are cooked and beginning to brown on top, 25 to 28 minutes. Run a knife around edges to loosen the quiches from the cups.

Meanwhile, whisk lemon juice, oil, mustard and pepper to taste in a large bowl. Add salad greens to the bowl; toss to coat with the dressing. To serve, divide the salad among 6 plates and top with tomato wedges and 2 quiches each.
