Mini Frittatas

No egg is safe in our house. Whether it’s boiled, scrambled, or frittata-ed (I’m making up words now), eggs last less than a couple of days in our house. The whole family loves them and it’s the coveted snack in the house. I know that may sound weird to those that do NOT have an egg obsession but it’s the truth.

These Mini Frittatas are made in mini muffin tins and can essentially have any of your favorite ingredients thrown in. Ham, sausage, bacon with spinach, parsley, or basil for some fresh pops of color and flavor. You are in charge.

mini-egg-fritatasI happened to have some bacon and spinach on hand so that’s what I used here. I like using Parmesan cheese inside the actual frittatas so that the cheese flavor is there but it doesn’t make them too wet inside. On top I sprinkled a little cheddar cheese for flavor and color.QB2A1969

Mini Frittatas

These frittatas are easy and light. Use whatever meat and veggies you have on hand to make them yours!

Ingredients

  • Nonstick vegetable oil cooking spray
  • 8 large eggs
  • 1/3 cup whole milk
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 4 ounces bacon, cooked and crumbled (you could use diced ham or cooked sausage here too)
  • 1/2 cup freshly grated Parmesan
  • 1/4 cup chopped spinach leaves (you could use 2 Tablespoons of chopped basil or parsley here instead too)
  • 1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.
  2. Spray 2 mini muffin tins (each with 12 cups) with nonstick spray. Spray well. You don't want these to stick.
  3. Whisk the eggs, milk, pepper, and salt in a large bowl to blend well. Stir in the bacon, cheese, and spinach. Fill prepared muffin cups almost to the top with the egg mixture. Sprinkle tops with cheddar cheese. Bake until the egg mixture puffs and is just set in the center, about 8 to 10 minutes. The frittatas will be really puffy right out of the oven and will settle once removed from the oven.
  4. Using a knife, run the edge of the knife around the edge and loosen the frittatas from the muffin cups and slide the frittatas onto a platter. Serve immediately.

  1. These look delicious. Get in my belly, frittatas!

  2. Perfect recipe at just the perfect time! I have a brunch to cater next week, I will be adding these to the menu now. Thanks!

  3. I was told by someone that they make a bunch of these and then freeze them. They make a really great snack when you don’t have the time to make something. I will use this recipe for sure. Thanks!

  4. Ahhh this would have been perfect for a bridal shower I helped host last weekend. I ended up doing a large egg casserole, but these are great for brunches and serving multiple people. Pinning to keep in mind for later. ๐Ÿ™‚

  5. Those look so good! My family adores eggs too!

  6. These are so cute and look really good!

  7. Oh wow, these look so good. I’ve pinned them so I don’t forget to try this some time! Xx

  8. What a great idea!

  9. Could these be made in regular sized muffin tins instead of the mini ones?

  10. These look fabulous! Thanks for sharing!

  11. i have a wierd version of these, and they are quite awesome, instead of mini muffin pans, use a full size one and the crescents from pilsbury, i just layer two in each pan after spraying them, so it covers the pan and then put the egg and goodies in, then i pull the edges up and pinch them together.. still cheese after and awesome!

    i also use garlic butter on tops as soon as they come out. lol.

  12. do you think these would freeze well?

  13. Did anyone have a problem w/ these sticking in the pan? I tried them twice , once w/ cooking spray, and once w/ butter and both times they were stuck … maybe its my muffin pan?
    Anyway, they didn’t look great , but they were still delicious!

      Melissa,
      Oh no! I’m sorry. I’ve noticed one of my pans is stickier than the other.

    • yes, get a fresh new muffin pan. i had this problem with an older pan til i got a new non-stick muffin tray. spray them good.

      i line mine first with a thicker slice of turkey like a muffin baking cup (ham works too), then pour egg mix on top. soooooooooooo yummy. can’t eat just one.
