Mini Muffin Frittatas


Pin It



These are adorable bite sized egg omelet like muffins. They taste great hot or even at room temp. Have jelly out for spooning on top of eggs if desired.

Makes 20 mini friatas, I double this and use two muffin tins for my family of four. We like to eat!

I brush a little oil on the muffin tins usually so they slide out easily. I forgot once and they still did come out but for insurance, I do brush oil on mine.

In a batter bowl:

4 eggs (beaten)
1/2 c whole milk
2-3 slices deli ham, chopped
1/4 c fresh grated parmesan cheese
1 T dry basil (more if using fresh)
dash of salt
about a T fresh cracked pepper

Mix all with a whisk and ladle into muffin tins. Bake at 375° for 8-10 minutes until eggs are set. They will look puffy but once you take them out, they will fall again, that is normal.

What a mess I made huh? lol.






Happy Happy Joy Joy..these take 5 mins of prep time and less than 10 mins to cook up. What a fast great breakfast or brunch idea and they are great made the night before and the kids can grab a few on the way out the door.

Note:

The difference between whole milk and 2% milk is not enough for me to switch to lowfat! We use whole milk because I have read many places and believe that lowfat causes prostate and many other cancers. I have boys so we just use whole milk.

These are also great to use cooked bacon instead of the ham!

Yup, I have added bacon (I have cooked crumbled bacon and sausage in the freezer for quick use in recipes like this). I like sausage best. Canadian Bacon would be snappy to add too.
Even tomatoes, veggies for the vegetarian would be yummy.

I've made similar breakfast muffins and they're so versatile and tasty! Nice to take along on a trip or to eat on the way to work, too. :)

I used my turkey baster to put the batter in the muffin cups today. It was so much easier. I am going to use that for the muffin cups for a lot of things now...brownie batter and all.
