Mini frittatas are my solution for kids who don't have time for breakfast. Adorable, super portable and tasty, this frittata recipe is the ideal breakfast on-the-go. You can make these fritattas in advance, and just warm them in the toaster or microwave.I use turkey pepperoni in these mini frittatas, because you don't have to cook it in advance, and it adds terrific flavor. But you can always substitute ham, Canadian bacon or regular bacon instead.

Ingredients:

  • 6 large eggs
  • 1/3 cup milk
  • 1/2 tsp. kosher salt
  • 1/4 tsp. freshly-ground black pepper
  • 2 Tbsp. chopped fresh parsley
  • 1/4 cup chopped turkey pepperoni
  • 3/4 cup shredded cheddar cheese
Preparation:

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Spray a mini muffin tin with cooking spray.
  2. Whisk together eggs, milk, salt, pepper and parsley. Stir in pepperoni.
  3. Divide cheddar cheese among 24 mini muffin cups.
  4. Pour egg mixture into a measuring cup with a spout. Pour egg mixture over cheese, filling cups to the top.
  5. Bake 10-14 minutes until mini frittatas are puffed and golden brown on top.
  6. Remove from oven and cool 5 minutes before serving.
