Crustless petit quiches

2 Tbsp butter
2 Tbsp flour
1/4 cup milk
1/4 cup might cream (or milk if you don't have cream)
1/4 tsp salt
pinch nutmeg
4 eggs
1/3 cup Emmental or Swiss cheese
1/4 cup goat cheese or cottage cheese
1/3 cup chopped frozen spinach, thawed and drained
2 slices bacon, crumbled
6 cherry tomatoes

Melt the butter in a saucepan over medium heat. Stir in flour, cooking until bubbly. Pour in the milk and cream. Keep stiring until thick, like pudding. Grate cheese into the mixture. Add salt and nutmeg Remove from heat and let cool until you can put your (clean!) finger in it.

Beat the eggs, then stir them into the mixture until mixed in. Fold in spinach, goat cheese and bacon.

Spray a muffin tin with non-stick spray. Spoon mixture into muffin tin, filling each one about 3/4 full. Top with half of a cherry tomato.

Bake in preheated oven at 350° until puffy and browned, about 20 minutes. Serve immediately.
