For my Sunday school team meetings I like to do something a little extra, special and serve breakfast. This time I decided I would try these mini frittatas -- the original recipe is found at The Incredible Edible Egg site. I love that these can be made ahead of time and then just microwaved to reheat before serving. I followed their recipe with just a few changes in ingredients.
Instead of the zucchini and peppers, I added broccoli, onion and mushrooms. Whatever veggies you are adding, you will want to chop them into tiny pieces so they are distributed throughout the mini frittatas. I also always saute my veggies first -- it brings out more flavor!
I always have fresh spinach and/or kale so I opted to add some chopped spinach which I also sauteed just until it started to wilt.
Now these definitely would have been great without meat but since I had a package of bacon bits, I added those. I really love these bags of bacon for recipes like this -- so much easier than frying bacon. I think browned sausage would be good in these too!
I doubled the recipe and it made exactly 24 frittatas. I baked mine for 20 minutes because knowing I would reheat them, I wanted them slightly underbaked.
Don't they look yummy? Well, let me tell you -- they were! I think these would freeze very well also. I plan on make a few batches and keeping them in the freezer. Who wouldn't like being able to pop a few of these in the microwave in the morning??
On any given week (depending on how busy I am!) I love to participate in Link Parties. These gals put a lot of time and effort into hosting these parties so I always want to show my appreciation by directing my readers to these blogs.
