Make Many Mini Frittatas

Easy appetizer recipes like these unique Mini Frittatas are not only great for a crowd, but are fun for brunches, too! With so few ingredients, yet still loaded with flavor, these little bites are super easy to make right in your muffin pan. Those who love broccoli will especially love these mini frittatas because they're included in the ingredients list. This simple muffin tin recipe will come in handy soon, so make sure to keep it around.

Yields: 24

Ingredients
  • 1 small bunch broccoli (about 8-ounces)
  • 10 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes
  • 3 cups grated sharp cheddar cheese
  • 1/3 cup minced fresh parsley
Instructions
  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.
     
  2. Cut the broccoli into small florets. (You can nibble on the stems, or set them aside for another use.) Fill a large saucepan half full with water. Bring to a rolling boil and add the broccoli. Cook until the broccoli is bright green but still crisp. Drain, rinse briefly under cold water to stop the cooking, and drain again thoroughly.
     
  3. Whisk the eggs in a large bowl until combined. Add the pepper, salt, and red pepper flakes. Whisk again briefly and pour into a pitcher with a good pouring lip.
     
  4. Place a little broccoli and about 1 1⁄2 tablespoons cheddar cheese in every cup in a 24-cup nonstick mini muffin pan. Pour the egg mixture equally into the cups, but not filling them all the way to the brim, as the frittatas will puff up when cooking. Place the muffin pan on the middle rack in the oven and bake for 12 to 15 minutes.
     
  5. Remove from the oven and cool for a few minutes. Using a knife if needed to loosen the edges, remove the mini frittatas from the muffin pan. Place on a platter and sprinkle the remaining cheese and the parsley over the top.

Frittata always brings a smile to my face and these mini frittatas are really very good. What a convenient way to eat them too, no plates or cutlery required. A little trick I was taught some years ago for a lighter texture separate 2 of the eggs, add the yolks to the mixture and whisk the whites until stiff and then fold into the mixture just before pouring into the muffin pan.

This is a great recipe for a high protein snack. It's perfect for persons trying to reduce their carbohydrate intake. I think other vegetables can be used if broccoli isn't readily available. Carrots and sweet peppers, or even cauliflower (which is similar to broccoli) should work well as substitutes for broccoli in this recipe.

I love making mini breakfast treats like this one, since you can easily make them up the night before, and they reheat in the microwave in just seconds in the morning. If somebody in your family is wary of the broccoli, why not swap out cauliflower instead? It is a great way to sneak the veggies into the mix. They may just mistake it for a potato. I used less cheese when I made them, but they were just as good.

I like the look of these frittatas as a healthy lunch box filler for my teenage son. I wonder if I can get away with the broccoli though? I think I can as they taste absolutely delicious I am sure and he is not going to worry what's in them!

Love this frittatas. They're some kind of comfort food. These frittata recipe is so versatile. It's basically eggs, broccoli and some spices and voila! you have an appetizer. The broccoli is a good addition as it is high in iron, vitamin C and the B vitamins. But just in case no one in the family likes broccoli, then you may include probably mushroom, bacon bits or anything your family wants to have in their fittata. Enjoy!

Correction "These frittata recipe.." should be "This frittata recipe...." Thanks.

Love this frittatas should be Love these frittatas.

You're right Zeemer these look like a very simple, brilliant recipe. I was just thinking they'd be great for a Christmas party too - easy to make in advance. I have to eat low carb and these would also make a great snack for anyone in my position to take to work or have around the house in the evening - obviously no potatoes -)
