I’m not a morning person. Since having a day job and a baby I’ve gotten better at waking up, but mornings are still challenging for me and I’m always trying to make them easier. Days when I go into the office are the hardest. I’m up around 5am, have an hour commute and don’t eat lunch until about 12-1. I need something substantial that I can grab and go.Jump to Recipe
This recipe also serves me well on days I’m home with Mila since eggs are one thing she’ll never refuse. Plus it’s a great way to sneak veggies in. To reheat you can microwave for 1-2 minutes or heat them in a covered skillet on low for 3-4 minutes and breakfast is ready.
I’ve found the recipe works best if you use cupcake liners in addition to cooking spray. I like these silicone ones, they’re super easy to clean and not as wasteful. Otherwise you will inevitably end up scraping egg out of your muffin tin regardless how much cooking spray you use.
Be sure to check the Frittatas few minutes early, if they start to puff over the muffin tin take them out. If overcooked they get dry and spongy. If the egg is still jiggly in the middle when you shake the pan, leave them in a few more minutes. The egg should barely be set and a toothpick inserted in the center should come out dry. Keep in mind they will continue to cook after you take them out of the oven.
