The last thing you want to do in the morning as you are rushing around the house, is make a huge meal. But, let’s face it, breakfast is one of the most important meals of the day.
For a fun and easy morning meal, try these small-scale egg dishes. Baked in individual muffin cups, they ensure that everyone gets the mix-ins they like. Especially great for your picky eaters! The great thing about these is that they do freeze okay…. if you need to freeze them but they also store for a few days in the fridge if need be! Make ahead and problem solved.
Mini Make-Ahead & Freeze Frittatas
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)
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.
