Mini Frittatas

Makes 4-6 Mini Frittatas*

6 Eggs, whisked
4oz Browned Sausage, Ground Buffalo, Bacon, or other meat
1 tsp. Coconut Oil, for greasing muffin tins

*Yams and/or potatoes should be par cooked; any other veggie can be sliced small...think pea or dime-sized.
  1. Preheat oven to 350F.
  2. Grease muffin cups with coconut oil. 
  3. Evenly distribute meat amongst muffin tins (4 sections of an oversized tin, 6-8 of a regular sized tin). I use an oversized muffin tin, with 6 cups/sections. 
  4. Add veggies, if using. 
  5. Top the meat and veggies with whisked eggs, filling just over 3/4 of the way full.
  6. Transfer the muffin tin to the heated oven and bake for 12-15 minutes, depending on muffin tin size. 
  7. Mini frittatas should slide right out but if they don't, slide a butter knife along the sides to loosen.

Feel free to mix up your ingredients (sausage and yams, bacon and asparagus, buffalo and zucchini, or throw leftovers in the bottom and just top with whisked eggs); the key is to have your ingredients prepped (veggies sliced and meats browned), so that in the morning, you just need to fill the tins and pop them in the oven and set a timer. You can also make a few extras in advance, store them in your fridge, and just reheat them before eating. Easy. 

*This recipe serves the two of us. Scott eats 2.5 and I eat 1.5.  Increase the recipe as needed.

This is a very inspiring breakfast idea. I am going to try it with my family Thursday morning with grass fed hamburger and zucchini. I will probably add some cheese to encourage my little ones.

We do buffalo and shredded zucchini quite often and love it! These are perfect for kids too, since they can just pick them up and eat them.

I used to add cheese, for my husband, but eventually he stopped noticing when it wasn't there. :)

a variation of these are in the oven for quick breakfasts before work…another fabulous idea! I've really found your blog helpful…thanks!

Thanks, Nadia!

I'm a huge frittata fan (if you haven't noticed...) and love this as an option. So easy, especially if you have your veggies all chopped and ready to go. It's also a great option if not everyone in your house wants the same mix of meat and veggies in their eggs. Easy to mix it up!
