Mini Frittatas

Technically, I’ve already posted this recipe, but I’m trying something new with it I thought was cool. In the original recipe, you simply bake eggs in a muffin tin, then put them inside an english muffin or mini bagel to make a breakfast sandwich. I decided to get a bit creative.

I’m always harping on cutting carbs (but then I just consume them in the form of cake or beer instead), so I wanted to avoid the mini bagels. The thing is, I pretty much hate how eggs taste, so I needed to do something to disguise them as much as possible.

I started by scrambling them up in their tins, then adding a variety of ingredients directly into the eggs. I had some cocktail weenies in the fridge, so I sliced some up and dropped them in. I also used diced onions, cheese, salsa, Sriracha, and frozen spinach. Each one has a different combination of those things in it. Like the salads I’ve been having for lunch every day, variety is important.

They baked up just fine, the same as in the original recipe.

They came out pretty good, but still taste like eggs. Next time I will be adding way more diced onion, cheese, and maybe mushrooms.

I have eaten them all for work though. When I reheat them, I put a small amount of cheese on top, and sometimes salsa, and they’re actually really good. God, I love cheese. Maybe next time I’ll skip the eggs altogether and just make a big ball of baked cheese filled with onions and mushrooms. *drools*
