Today I want to share a great recipe for make-ahead Mini Frittatas. The really great thing about these is that you can make them ahead and then freeze them. Then you can have a frittata any day of the week, just pop one or two into the microwave and you’re ready to go!
You make these Mini Frittatas in muffin cups and you can eat them right away, or you can put them in small ziploc bags and freeze them. I made mine with ham and monterey jack cheese, but you could use whatever combo of ingredients you like. Sauteed veggies or cooked breakfast sausage would be great and any kind of shredded cheese would be delicious.
I must give you full disclosure….I ended up over filling my muffin cups, so they did not come out looking very pretty, but they tasted great. So don’t fill them all the way to the top like I did. Otherwise, they were very easy to make, really not much more work than making scrambled eggs. AND I just love the fact that you can freeze them and heat them up in merely minutes. How great is that on a busy weekday morning?
1/4 cup milk
salt and pepper
1 1/4 cup deli ham
1 1/4 cup shredded monterey jack cheese
Place about 1 tbsp ham and 1 tbsp cheese in each muffin cup.
