Looking for a make-ahead breakfast recipe that you can take with you as you scoot out the door? Great for kids and adults, you can bake these bite-sized frittatas in a miniature muffin pan. They taste great hot or at room temperature, so you can make a big batch in advance.
(Note: Fritattas are a great “left over” recipe, too. Add in last night’s vegetables, potatoes or protein. Yum!)
Yield: 8 servings (serving size: 3 frittatas)
- Cooking spray
- 1/2 cup finely chopped onion
- 2/3 cup chopped reduced-fat ham (about 2 ounces)
- 1/3 cup (about 1 1/2 ounces) shredded reduced-fat extra-sharp cheddar cheese
- 2 tablespoons chopped fresh chives
- 1/8 teaspoon dried thyme
- 1/8 teaspoon black pepper
- 4 large egg whites
- 1 large egg
Preheat oven to 350°.
Heat a large nonstick skillet coated with cooking spray over medium-high heat. Add onion; sauté 2 minutes or until crisp-tender. Add ham; sauté 3 minutes. Remove from heat; cool 5 minutes. Combine remaining ingredients in a large bowl; stir with a whisk. Add ham mixture, stirring with a whisk. Spoon mixture into 24 miniature muffin cups coated with cooking spray. Bake at 350° for 20 minutes or until set.
