Miniature Frittatas

Weekend brunch is a regular favorite in our household, and I am always on the lookout for recipes that are easy to make, yet unique enough to make even a typical weekend feel special. Our family loves egg dishes, and these miniature frittatas are a breeze to make, making them perfect not only for lazy weekends, but also for a quick and easy busy weeknight dinner idea. 

These miniature frittatas at Positively Splendid are so easy to make, and they would be perfect for weekend brunch or even a quick weeknight supper!

Delicious frittatas take on miniature form in this easy-to-prepare recipe. These go from prep to table in less than 30 minutes!
Ingredients
  • 8 large eggs
  • ¼ cup milk
  • ½ teaspoon pepper
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 small onion, finely chopped
  • 1 red bell pepper finely chopped
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon minced fresh rosemary
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 12 whole cherry tomatoes
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 425. Grease the wells of a standard-sized 12-cup muffin tin with non-stick spray.
  2. In a large bowl, whisk together the eggs and next 3 ingredients. Set aside.
  3. In a large saute pan, heat the olive oil over medium heat. Add the onion and bell pepper and season with the ½ teaspoon salt. Saute until the vegetables are softened and onion is slightly golden, about 7 minutes. Stir in rosemary, and saute for 1 minute, until fragrant.
  4. Divide the onion mixture evenly among the muffin tins and top with an even amount of the cheddar cheese in each tin. Evenly distribute the egg mixture among the cups, using a ladle to pour the mixture directly over the onion mixture and cheese. Place a cherry tomato in the center of each well.
  5. Bake for about 10 minutes, or until the frittatas are just set in the center. (Use a butter knife inserted in the center to test for doneness.) Remove from oven and cool for about 5 minutes before removing from pan. (Running a butter knife around each frittata works well to help loosen them from the pan if they are difficult to remove.)
Notes
Although this recipe is easy enough for lazy weekends, these make a pretty enough presentation to serve at upcoming holiday brunches.
