And it is amazing.
I found this recipe for mini frittatas pinned and decided to give it a try.
I have been looking for some simple ideas for breakfast for the kids and I. These little guys were easy to make and they freeze well. Now, I am calling them mini omelettes because for some reason my daughter has an aversion to frittatas. Change the name and the kids entire attitude about them changes as well. :)
I pretty much followed the recipe exactly as it is written on the Disney Family Fun page except that I doubled the recipe.
- 8 organic eggs
- 1/2 C organic half and half
- 6 strips turkey bacon (baked in oven--no grease)
- 1/2 C chopped onion
- 1/4 C shredded organic baby carrots
- 3 oz shredded medium cheddar cheese
- 3/4 tsp onion
- 1/2 tsp pepper (I used 3/4 and it was VERY peppery)
- 3/4 tsp garlic powder
Beat eggs, half and half and spices together. Pour about 1/4 C into greased (or sprayed) muffin tins. This made just enough for a 12 muffin tin. Add veggies and turkey bacon to tins then top with cheese. Bake at 350 for 25 minutes.
I calculated the calories and it comes out to only 111 calories per mini omelette. Not too bad for a quick breakfast or snack that is packed with protein. These tasted great while hot and I had 2 this morning for breakfast, reheated in microwave for 1 minute and they were still tasty. I am planning to make some different versions of these, maybe a mexican style, veggie etc...
