Mini-Veggie Frittata Recipe

by - Thursday, May 15, 2014

Yesterday I decided to have a little fun in my kitchen and whip up a new frittata recipe I found.

A little fun in the kitchen tonight. Delicious mini frittatas. I know because I just tested that missing one.

I constantly struggle with breakfast ideas that I can transport to work easily (necessary when you get in a 7 a.m.). I had burnt myself out on hard boiled eggs and I prefer started the day with something protein-based, not a bagel or a bowl of oatmeal.

Hence, the mini-fritatta experiment last night.

Lucky for me the recipe was super easy to follow, and when I posted the picture on Instagram last night, I was asked to share the recipe.

So here it is:

6 eggs
1/2 cup milk (I used water b/c I don't like milk in my eggs)
salt/pepper (forgot to add this)
2 Tbsp red onion
3/4 c zucchini
1/2 red pepper (I used orange)

I also added some chopped tomato, I have no idea how much but it wasn't a lot.

The recipe called for some amount of cheese, which I left out.

Basically you chop all the veggies. Beat the water and eggs in a bowl. Add the veggies and mix.

Then pour it all into a muffin tin. (About a quarter cup of the mixture per muffin slot).

Last pop it into an oven set at 350 degrees for 20-22 minutes. Then let cool for five minutes.

The recipe said you can freeze them once they cool, but I just popped them in the fridge because I figure I'll probably polish them off within the next few days.

    So just about any veggie works in these. I've done combos of broccoli, spinach, onion, tomato, mushroom, peppers. Just about anything you'd put in an omelette. I've not attempted any meats though I'm sure you could do it. And they do freeze/thaw well.

  2. yay, thanks! I'm always looking for healthier quick breakfasts because I get bored of turkey bacon and hard boiled eggs after a while. Can't wait to try these!

  3. looks good Jess! I've been desperate for something high protein and not super processed that I can grab and eat quickly in the morning so look forward to making some variation of this :) planning to make these tonight and think I'll try to add some meat to it too!
