Easy Make-Ahead Breakfast!

Breakfast, lunch, or dinner… I could eat these Egg Frittata Muffins all day every day! What is a “frittata“? In Italian, the word means fried, but it’s basically an egg-based dish similar to an omelette or quiche that is filled with yummy ingredients! These frittata muffins are so easy to make and would be perfect to serve at a brunch, or just to have on hand in your fridge to eat throughout the week. You can also customize them with different veggies based on your preferences or what you have on hand. I used peppers, mushrooms, and spinach. But feel free to experiment with things like onions, asparagus, broccoli, maybe even some crumbled bacon? Wait, did someone say bacon?! Ok, next time!

Egg Frittata Muffins

 

Here is the Recipe for Egg Frittata Muffins:

Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 22 minutes

Ingredients

You will need:

4 eggs
4 egg whites
¼ cup skim milk
2/3 cup shredded cheese
Salt and pepper to taste
Sliced ham (optional)
1 tsp olive oil
½ cup chopped bell pepper
½ cup chopped mushrooms
3 cups loosely packed spinach, roughly chopped


Here’s what to do
:

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Line muffin tins with a piece of ham or spray with cooking spray if not using ham.

Line cups with ham

In a medium frying pan, heat olive oil over medium high heat. When hot, add peppers and mushrooms and saute until softened, about 4-5 minutes. Add spinach and cook until wilted. Remove from heat.

Add Spinach

Meanwhile, in a large bowl or measuring cup with spout, whisk together eggs, egg whites, skim milk, salt and pepper. Pour egg mixture into prepared muffin tin so that each one is about 2/3 full.

Pour in Egg Mixture

Add a sprinkle of shredded cheese to each muffin cup, and divide the sautéed vegetables evenly among the muffins. Bake for 20-25 minutes or until puffed up and golden brown.
