Healthy Breakfast: Mini Veggie Frittata

I wholeheartedly believe that breakfast is the most important meal of the day. I love an egg or two in the morning, but am often pressed for time. These mini frittatas save the day, literally. When my day begins with protein, I seem to be much happier. This recipe is super simple and the end product is tasty.

Mini Spinach Frittatas

Ingredients

  1. 5 eggs
  2. 2 tbs low fat milk
  3. 3/4 cup diced red pepper
  4. 1 package of chopped frozen spinach
  5. 5 ounces cup soft goat cheese (chevre)
  6. salt and pepper to taste

Directions

  1. Microwave spinach on high for two minutes. Wring with hands to drain excess liquid.
  2. Beat eggs and milk in a small bowl.
  3. Mix in goat cheese.
  4. Add veggies and salt and pepper to taste.
  5. Pour muffin tins coated with canola cooking spray.
  6. Bake at 350 degrees for 12 to 15 minutes, or until firm and just golden on top.
  7. Once cooled, you can store the frittatas in the fridge. To warm you can microwave for 20 to 40 seconds to reheat, or pop them in a toaster oven for about a minute.

Makes 9 mini frittatas

This is the basic recipe, but feel free to change the veggies and cheese.

It was very good, but I would recommend cutting the spinach amount in half. The idea of including mushrooms and something spicy like red pepper flakes sounds good too!

I love this idea..I am one to skip breakfast because I have no time but who doesn't\u00a0 have 30secs for a delicious breakfast? Question though: Do you need cheese? I like the cottage cheese idea but I'd like to make them right now also, fresh spinach? I don't like frozen

Yum! I will be trying these soon, but with egg whites and no bell pepper (don't like peppers...ew)! Thanks for the recipe!

Oooh, I'm so going to make this for my next brunch. Love the muffin tin idea. I never thought of that!

So I made these the past weekend substituting feta for goat cheese, and they turned out great. Two notes, definitely use the cooking spray in abundance these get stuck in the muffin pan and are a pain to clean. Second, these took about 30 min on 350 versus the 12-15 recommended. I did squeeze out the spinach. I just wanted to let people know as no one needs an egg illness if they do not cook them long enough. I also used a little hot pepper versus the bell pepper for a kick.

you know, it's really funny - i think that i always thought frittatas were more complicated than they are and never make them, but now i realize that it's not so bad - and i might have to try it. the recipe looks good and it doesn't seem to take very long at all! my fiance might even like the nice treat of a weekend breakfast!

I have a psuedo-recipe for the same type of meal! Since i am always in a rush, i usually make my breakfast at work...so I make sure i have a microwavable bowl, some egg whites (in the carton), a container of spinach, mushrooms, whatever other veggie may be around, and some feta cheese. I mix the ingredients in the bowl, microwave for about 1 1/2 minutes, and there you have your complete breakfast (usually have mine with a whole wheat english muffin). It's really simple and good:)

I make these with varying proportions of veggies, cottage cheese, eggs, baking powder, and herbs (+ a little buckwheat flour if the mixture looks too wet)...they're delicious, and they keep really well in the fridge. The cottage cheese melts down...you'd never really know it was in there (but yay, protein power!)

Great idea, I hardly have time to make breakfast in the mornings - better than grabbing a muffin at the petrol station.

This is fabulous idea. I love spinach and proteins in the morning are totally important to feel satiated through the day. Power breakfast, indeed!

YumSugar had an egg recipe posted several months ago that is my go-to egg dish in the morning. You simply butter a ramakin, layer the bottom with a slice or two of ham, pop in an egg, and bake until the yolk is firmed to your liking. About 5 minutes before it is done, I add some soft cheese to the top. It takes just a minute to assemble and by the time that I get out of the shower, I have breakfast! :)

There is a great recipe here for those that don't eat egg or cheese - http://blog.fatfreevegan.com/2006/12/mini-crustless-tofu-quiches.html You can sub in any veggies - and the protein is pretty good for 1 serving.
