Mini Vegetable and Bacon Frittatas

Mini Vegetable and Bacon Frittatas

As I said in my last post, sweet breakfasts are kind of my thing – I’ve got to have at least a piece of fruit, and I hold pretty steadfast on that. But, as with most things in life, there’s an exception. And you can bet your cinnamon buns that frittatas are that exception.

Ooo, cinnamon buns. WAIT! I will not be distracted.

Mini Frittatas Recipe

Frittatas are so easy to put together, and they’re my number one favorite savory way to enjoy a weekend breakfast. Whatever varied chopped vegetables or meat I have leftover from making weeknight dinners, it all goes in. They’re super adaptable, darn delicious and so cute made mini that you just want to squeeze their little eggy cheeks. Come here, frittata!

Easy Mini Frittatas

For these mini frittatas made in muffin tins, I used shredded zucchini and small diced tomatoes and onions. Topped with a fluffy sprinkling of asiago and fresh basil, I think you could agree they’re just about the best thing to welcome you into the weekend.

Mini Vegetable and Bacon Frittatas Recipe

Feel free to get creative with your fillings – mostly any vegetable or meat cut small will do. For vegetables, try spinach, potatoes, bell peppers, squash, mushrooms, peas or asparagus. For meat, leftover cooked chicken, pork or ham would be delish!

Whatever you way you make ‘em, there’s no denying that these mini frittatas would be the hit of your breakfast or brunch table. Try them for yourself some weekend and I know you’ll enjoy them just as much as I did!

Mini Vegetable and Bacon Frittatas

Yield: Makes 6 mini frittatas

Ingredients:

2 eggs

4 egg whites (or 3 additional whole eggs, if you prefer)

1/2 teaspoon kosher salt

1/4 teaspoon freshly ground pepper

1/4 teaspoon garlic powder

3 slices bacon

1/8 cup small diced onion

1/4 cup small diced tomato, seeds removed

1/4 cup shredded or small diced zucchini

1/4 cup finely grated cheese (I used asiago, but use any hard cheese you prefer)

4 leaves fresh basil, torn

Directions:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

In a medium bowl, beat together egg and egg whites/whole eggs. Add salt, pepper and garlic powder.

Coat 6 cups of a muffin tin with cooking spray and set aside.

In a frying pan set to medium high heat, cook bacon for 4 minutes per side. Place strips on a paper towel lined cutting board. Let bacon cool then chop into small pieces.

Divide chopped bacon, onion, tomato and zucchini between the muffin tins. Top each muffin cup with the beaten eggs.

Bake for 15-20 minutes, until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.

Remove pan from oven and top frittatas with grated cheese and basil. Let cool for about 5 minutes before running a small knife alongside each frittata to release it from the pan. Serve warm.

Enjoy!

 

* Tip: Keep refrigerated for up to 4 days. To reheat two at a time, microwave on high for 30 seconds.

    I’ve not thought about having a frittata for breakfast – we usually have them as an evening meal or a nibble before drinks but I love this idea!

    Georgia, fritattas are wonderful, of course, but it was the “mini” that got me! You see, I’m one of those people who likes to “mini” just about anything and turn it into something suitable for the tea table! What I like about this recipe is that it gives you big bacon flavor with just a little bit of bacon.
