Mini Frittatas

Our Friday mornings usually consist of poached eggs and cured slices of an animals backside 😉  but this week we wanted to try something new.

After seeing some inspiration for mini frittatas we decided to give them a go and were completely blown away by the results!

For you first time frittatas here’s how:

Ingredients:

  • 6 eggs
  • 1 small red onion
  • 3 cloves garlic
  • 1 Handful button mushrooms
  • 15 frozen green peas (you don’t actually have to count 🙂 )
  • ½ Red Pepper (capsicum)
  • 2 slices Gouda cheese (roughly chopped)
  • 2 slices Egyptian roomy or Parmesan cheese (we used Roomy because it tastes  like parmesan but is much cheaper)
  • 1 tsp. Paprika
  • 6 strips of your favorite meat (bacon, turkey bacon, veggie bacon, etc.)
  • 1 spring onion
  • ¾ cup of water
  • 2 Tbsp. olive oil
  • Salt and pepper

The beauty of this recipe is variety!  You can try any combination of the above ingredients.

  1. Whisk your eggs and water in a bowl, add paprika, black pepper, and a dash of salt. Use an electric whisk for extra-fluffy eggs. This Paleo version of the recipe does not use milk, use full-fat milk for added fluff and volume
  2. Chop all veggies and sauté in a pan with olive oil
  3. In a non-stick muffin tray, add the sautéed mix. Mix and match to your taste. For Paleo version, do not include cheese and peas, all else is good to go 🙂
  4. Spoon the whisked up egg mixture into the each muffin casing. Make sure to get the liquid as well as the froth to maintain consistency
  5. Sprinkle cheese & chopped spring onions on top
  6. Preheat your oven to 180 degrees Celsius (355F)
  7. Pop your muffin tray in the oven for 20 minutes, until your frittatas have risen and turned a golden-brown colour. Try to not open the door to peak
  8. Once done, loosen the frittatas from the edges of the tray with a knife and flip your muffin tray over onto a cooling rack. They should slide right out

These were surprising easy and delicious. The frittatas had risen quite high in the oven but once cooled they sunk down a bit. Any advice on how to remedy this is welcome!

Enjoy!

  1. Hi there, the minifrittas are looking good but are posted as a vegetarian food. Since it’s with meat you should name it differently. I think it can be nice with a bit of salmon or seitan.

    • Hi Marianne,

      Thanks for your comment, I really appreciate the feedback. The reason they are posted under vegetarian because the main part of this dish is vegetarian and the meat is only optional,I couldn’t decide which other category to post them in because when I think of fritattas I don’t think of any particular meat just eggs and veggies. I hope this is ok? 🙂
      Happy eating
