I recently posted about the boxed breakfast I delivered to friends for two very different occasions…one friend dealing with the loss of her nephew, and the other having her third child. Click HERE if you want to read more about their stories and how I delivered their breakfast box.

Today, I am featuring the recipe for the mini frittatas.

These frittatas are a delicious 1-2 bite breakfast  food. They are very quick and easy to make. The frittatas are a wonderful make ahead breakfast food, and they freeze beautifully. I warm them up in the microwave directly from the freezer. They are a great way to ensure you are having a healthy, protein packed breakfast and are great for on the go! These mini frittatas are a perfect bake and share breakfast food. This recipe makes 24 mini frittatas. It can be catered to your own taste. If you prefer ham or sausage, use it instead of the bacon, or use whatever cheese and herbs you prefer.

Mini Frittatas
Ingredients

cooking spray
8 large eggs
1/2 cup whole milk
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1/4 teaspoon salt
4 pieces of cooked bacon, chopped
2 1/2 Tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese
2 1/2 Tablespoons shredded mild cheddar cheese
2 tablespoons chopped fresh Italian parsley leaves

Directions

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.

  1. Spray mini muffin tin (with 24 cups) with nonstick spray.
  2. Whisk the eggs, milk, pepper, and salt in a large bowl to blend well. Stir in the cheese, and parsley.
  3. Fill prepared muffin cups almost to the top with the egg mixture.
  4. Sprinkle the chopped bacon evenly among the muffin cups.
  5.  Bake until the egg mixture puffs and is just set in the center, about 8 to 10 minutes.
  6. Using a rubber spatula, loosen the frittatas from the muffin cups and slide the frittatas onto a platter. Serve immediately.
  7. If you will be sharing or freezing the frittatas, cool them on a wire rack and package in an air tight container. Store in the refrigerator or freezer. They can be warmed directly from the freezer if frozen.
Baking Tips:

*My frittatas took 8 minutes to cook, so check yours around 7 minutes…not every oven is the same.

*I like to whisk my egg mixture until it starts to get frothy and foamy. I think it makes for a fluffier frittata.

Bake and Share Ideas:
  1. Bake the frittatas as part of a breakfast box for a friend the morning of a funeral they need to attend as I explained in my last post. See the link at the beginning of this post to read more
