Cheesy Mini Egg Muffins

Here's the Dish

These bite-sized frittatas are delicious, easy and fast! When I need to make a really quick and tasty meal, I usually go with a fritatta, which is basically an omelet that is not folded or turned, making it much more simple to prepare. These mini frittatas are perfect for a nice brunch, an easy snack, or to make ahead of time to have as breakfast throughout the work-week. They can be re-heated by simply popping a couple of them in the microwave for 30 seconds, or you could eat them straight out of the fridge for a quick protein packed snack!

Note: This recipe could also be made in a large skillet placed in the oven (which would to make one big frittata).  Although, I like the portability of the mini portions.

Method

The estimated total time to make this recipe is 35-40 Minutes.

1

Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Spray muffin tin with non-stick cooking spray.

2

Microwave frozen vegetables for 3-4 minutes, or until thawed. Squeeze dry.

3

In a large bowl, beat eggs until foamy. Add veggies, 1/4 cup cheese, salt and pepper. Stir until well combined. Divide egg mixture into 10 muffin molds. (Fill about 3/4 full). Top with remaining (1/4 cup) cheese.

4

Bake for 20-25 minutes, or until eggs are set and slightly browned on the top. Remove from the oven, and let cool until able to handle. Remove by sliding a knife between the egg and the muffin tin to loosen frittata. Enjoy warm!

Ingredients

1 1/2 cup Egg beaters (or 2 eggs and 8 egg whites)
2 cups (16 oz) Bag frozen vegetable mix of choice, de-thawed and squeezed dry.
1/2 cup Freshly grated parmesan cheese (or shredded mozzarella)
1/2 cup Red pepper, diced (or onion, or vegetable of choice)
1/2 tsp Salt
PinchPepper to taste

Katie's Tip!

This recipe could also be made in a large skillet placed in the oven (which would to make one big frittata). Although, I like the portability of the mini portions.

Frittatas are my go-to meal when I’m pressed for time, too. They are especially great when I have some veggies to use up. These mini ones look fantastic!

What vegetables would you recommend using in this? I know you said that any would work, but I am just starting to add vegetables into my diet and need a suggestion.

I made this mini egg frittata’s this morning to have all week before work! Love how easy and delicious they were. Can’t wait to play around with different flavors. Such as spinach, roasted red peppers and mozzarella or smoke Gouda!

These are wonderful, thanks for the idea! I’m having one huge problem though, no matter much or little non-stick spray I use they stick to tins and then fall apart during removal. Any suggestions?

I made these tonight and they turned out delicious! I used a dozen egg whites, fresh asparagus, and fresh green onions. My batch made 12 fritattas. Will be making these again very soon! Thanks!

Katie Farrell said:

yes i do joy, 2 things, did you use more veggies than recommended?

if so, then there may be your problem! :)

If not, I would try using silicone muffin liners! :) this makes for easy removal and easier portability, and they last forever! :)
