Whip up a batch of these bite sized ham and cheese frittatas on the weekend and you've got breakfast
ready to go for the week!
In my quest for quicker, and healthier, breakfast options for my family, I came up with these super delicious mini ham and cheese frittatas. Made in a mini muffin tin, they seriously couldn't be any easier! Mix the ingredients up in one bowl, bake them in your tin, and voila! In less than 30 minutes you've got a batch of these bite sized beauties ready to go for the week. I love to make them on the weekend, that way when you're pressed for time those weekday mornings, you can pop a few in the microwave for a fast and portable breakfast.
These little frittatas aren't just for breakfast either. They are great cold, or at room temperature, and my kids love eating them for lunch, too. I pack four of them along with some fruit, and veggie sticks and dip for a nutritious lunch!
