Mini Frittatas

I am in a MOMS Club and I hosted the members breakfast this morning.  The past few days were spent getting the house whipped into shape and party ready.
I was paging through the Williams Sonoma catalog last week and saw a frittata recipe, but of course you need their special pan for their recipe so I hit the internet.  

I altered her recipe to use sausage and spinach instead of ham.  They are the perfect size.  I made mini muffin size for the spinach and regular muffin size for the spinach and sausage. Yes I am that person that labels her food.  What can I say, I love labels :)

I would definitely make these again.  You can even customize them with different toppings for different people.  When I did a trial run of the recipe for my husband I added tomato and tiny fresh mozzarella balls to the spinach ones and they were delicious!

Recipe- Mini Frittatas- adapted from Giada makes 12 regular muffins and 12 mini muffins

12 eggs
1 cup whole milk
1/3 cup parmesan cheese
pinch salt and black pepper
1/4 cup chopped fresh basil (or any other herb)
1/4 cup minced onion cooked until soft
1/4 cup minced pepper cooked until soft
1/2 cup chopped and cooked spinach ( i cooked it in olive oil and garlic)
1cup italian sausage cooked
spray oil

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.  Beat eggs, milk, parmesan cheese, salt, black pepper, onion, pepper, and basil together.  Spray Muffin tins with cooking oil.  Pour into muffin cups 3/4 full.  Add spinach and sausage into the cups.  Make sure sausage is crumbled and spinach is separated. Bake 8-12 minutes until the center is set and the frittata has puffed up.  Use a small spatula to loosen the frittatas from the muffin tins.  Serve hot. 

Experiment with your favorite toppings.  Start with the basic egg mixture that you pour into the tins and then go crazy!!! There are endless possibilities, and they are delicious! Note: the sausage worked better in the regular muffin tins.

Yum. thanks so much for sharing this on Momtrends. Could be an awesome breakfast option for kids if they can be re-heated.
