Make Ahead Baked Mini Frittatas




Easy, portable, freezable.. yummy, hearty breakfast in a minute.  I love a quiche, frittata or strata but don't necessarily have the time to create and bake, when I want to eat one in the morning.  Made ahead in muffin cups, the outcome is great and they freeze well.  Letting you have almost instant, hearty.. savory breakfast without preservatives or nasties.  Pop them in the toaster oven for  a couple minutes.. easy peasy! 



Step #1

Fill muffin cups that have been greased lightly with  
2 slices of cooked potato
1 or 2 broccoli florets
saute´d onion & peppers
2 slices of zucchini
(or any veggie of your choice)


Step #2

Top with a couple crumbles of sausage (or bacon) 
a little shredded cheddar  



Step #3

In a large bowl, whisk together 
8 eggs
1.5 cups half and half (or heavy cream)
S + P
grating of fresh nutmeg





Step #4

Fill cups up pretty much to the top


Step #5

Bake at 375°F  for 25-30min. til puffed and egg is set, not liquid.



(Egg cups will puff up and then settle down)

    1. 18-24 depending on how much "stuff" you put in. (i.e. meat and veggies)
