Super Easy Muffin Tin Frittata
Are you looking for an easy egg dish you can put together in a flash and have at the ready during the week? Then this recipe for Muffin Tin Frittata is for you! After seeing a glimpse of this on TV, I decided to do a little research and found that this type of recipe is pretty popular. Who knew? Apparently, that would be me, because I had no idea this existed and I was definitely missing out.
I’ve made egg-toast cups before and they are great, but these Muffin Tin Frittatas are super simple and so versatile they can be custom-flavored to anyone’s taste. Add your favorite veggies such as spinach, broccoli, peppers, asparagus, or mushrooms. You can add cheese such as cheddar, mozzarella, Colby-Jack, Swiss, or grated Parmesan. Some can be made with bacon, cooked sausage, ground turkey, or make them meatless and add a bevy of fresh herbs such as dill, parsley, cilantro, and garlic powder. Really, the add-ins are totally customary and will be delicious no matter what.
Muffin Tin Frittatas are great for any meal; for breakfast you can serve with a side of toast or eat as is; for lunch enjoy with a cup of fruit salad, and for dinner a side salad is perfect. I like this recipe because of portion control and the fact that you can make it ahead of time, store them in the fridge, and have a handy, healthy meal in a matter of minutes.
So easy … I can’t believe I haven’t made these before. You can bet they will be on the menu from now on!
