LIL FRITTATA BITES (2 WAYS)

These lil frittata bites are perfect for any brunch event (fancy or chill) OR can be made ahead and used as grab-and-go breakfasts for the week. You can mix up the fillings as much as you like according to whatever is in your fridge.

I made two versions of these lil guys:

Chive & Goat Cheese

Spinach, Onion & Sage

Eggs are one of my absolute favorite foods. Not only are they delicious, they are little powerhouses of filling protein and fat to help get you through the day:

  • They are filled with lean protein and all the essential amino acids which are needed to regulate your mood, energy, and muscle building
  • They are packed with all the B vitamins which are necessary for energy production
  • They contain healthy fats like omega 6 and 3 which we need for brain function and to fight off inflammation!
  • They have zero effect on blood sugar and actually help to balance it by keeping you sustained for longer periods of time (thank you, protein and fat!)

INGREDIENTS

  • 2 tsp olive oil
  • 10 pastured eggs
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened almond milk

METHOD

  • Preheat oven to 350F and grease 12 muffin tins with olive or avocado oil or line them with muffin liners. Set aside
  • In a small pan, heat the olive oil over medium heat. Add the chopped 1/2 onion and sauté for 5-10 minutes. Set aside.
  • In a large bowl, whisk the eggs and almond milk together, incorporating as much air into the mixture as possible to make it fluffy. Season with salt and pepper.
  • Pour the mixture evenly into the 12 prepared muffin tins.
  • FOR THE FIRST VERSION: crumble some goat cheese and sprinkle some chives into 6 of the muffin tins
  • FOR THE SECOND VERSION: add some of the sautéed onion, the chopped spinach and chopped sage to each.
  • Bake in preheated oven for 15 minutes or until eggs are set in the middle. Store in the fridge for up to 5 days or serve for brunch!
