mini frittatas.

If you’re looking for an easy breakfast option for those crazy mornings where you’d LOVE to fill everyones bellies with more than just pop tarts, then look no further.

I found this simple recipe for Mini Frittatas on Disney’s Family Fun website and loved it. It looked easy enough that even I might not ruin it. And I was right! I made these little frittatas on a casual morning that we weren’t super crazy busy. Then I made extra and stored them in a zip lock baggie in the fridge for the rest of the week. All I had to do was heat them up in the microwave for just a few seconds and BAM. Breakfast of champions.

Whatever that means.

Give it a whirl! It’s likely that you already have all the ingredients on hand. And while pop tarts ARE yummy (and totally a staple in my house, I’m ashamed to admit), it does rock to have a more filling option on hand that is FAST. Breakfast in my house needs to be quick. I’m usually heading out the door with both boys by about 9 AM so we need to eat and GO.

Try it! And you can add in whatever your little heart desires. The sky is the limit here, people.

Ingredients:

  • 4 large eggs
  • 1/4 cup half-and-half
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • Assorted mix-ins (such as shredded cheese, diced vegetables, and cooked and chopped bacon, ham, or sausage)
  • Grated Parmesan cheese (optional)

Directions:

1. Heat your oven to 350º F and coat a 6-cup muffin pan with nonstick cooking spray.

2. Whisk together the eggs, half-and-half, and salt in a medium bowl, then evenly distribute the egg mixture among the muffin cups.

3. Add about 2 tablespoons of mix-ins to each cup, then sprinkle on a bit of Parmesan cheese, if you like.

4. Bake the frittatas until they are puffy and the edges are golden brown, about 20 to 25 minutes. (If necessary, run a butter knife around the edge of each one to loosen them before removing them from the pan.) Makes 6 mini frittatas.
