Frittata Muffins {Recipe}

School has completely changed how our mornings have always worked around here. I'm used to getting up and making breakfast for the family, but I'm not used to getting people up and out the door before 7am and getting them fed. This has caused me to get super creative in the breakfast department. I've got a few go to breakfast now, that are healthy and I can make in a hurry. The Frittata Muffins have quickly become a favorite for everyone. 

The night before, you prep your bowl of ingredients. I make a batch large enough for 2 breakfasts and leave it in the fridge.

The next morning, I wake up and immediately turn the oven on and fill the muffin tins about 3/4 of the way. My boys like theirs "plain", so I just make them a few with only eggs and milk.

While the muffins are baking, I can shower, make lunches, wake kids up and whatever else I need to get done. I can give these to the whole family and know everyone has had a healthy breakfast.

Ingredients:

6 eggs
1 cup egg whites
1/2 tsp salt
1/3 cup milk

Whisk all together and add in your flavor. For the recipe pictured, I used:

1 small onion, minced
1/2 cup diced green pepper
1 cup torn spinach
1/2 cup shredded cheese - 1/4 cup mixed in and 1/4 cup sprinkled on top

You could literally put anything you want in there. Bacon, sausage, zucchini, whatever veggies you had leftover from the night before, you name it. You could also use feta or a spicy pepperjack cheese. Get creative! 

Bake at 350 degrees for 12 minutes and enjoy!

  1. These look delicious! Have you tried freezing them? I always see the recipes on pinterest where they freeze the (cooked) version and pop em in the microwave but I just wonder if they are any good once nuked?

    1. I've made these before and YES they freeze well. I made a big batch ahead of time and put them in the fridge for the week, then the rest in the freezer to pull out. Make them Chels!

  2. I'm right there with you! Morning routines are the most important part of the day because it starts the day! I spend 45 minutes every morning downstairs in my kitchen packing lunches, making breakfast, packing my pump, etc.

    I've taken to making pancakes from a mix, the entire box, at one time and freezing. It lasts for a few weeks and it's much cheaper than buying the pre-made.

    But I am so excited to try these because they're healthy, can be prepped the night before and are quick. I can bake them while I'm running around like crazy doing everything else. Plus, it's something I can throw at my husband while he runs out the door-although he would probably want it on an english muffin :)

    I wonder if this would work with all egg whites, for those of us that have to lose 40 lbs post baby :(

  4. Yum! I recently made something similar and I've been throwing in a little leftover quinoa. The kids won't eat it, HATE it, but don't even notice it in small quantities in their egg muffins. :)
    Thanks for sharing your recipes!
