Super Easy Muffin Tin Frittata

EF-Muffin Tin FrittataAre 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.
