Small-fry Frittatas
Okay, this isn't so much a recipe as it is a great idea I found in an old Family Fun magazine (March 2005) to solve the problem we have in our house of making omelettes for people with differing tastes (yes tomatoes, no tomatoes, yes tomatoes or peppers, yes ham...etc...).
You bake the eggs in a muffin tin! Pour in the egg mixture, have the mix-ins available and let everyone make one or two of these to their own taste. My Kindergartener swears they taste better than regular omelettes, too.
For 12 frittatas:
8 large eggs
1/2 cup half and half
1 tsp salt
assorted mix-ins (shredded cheese, diced tomatoes, peppers, chives, bacon bits, sausage bits, ham bits....)
Heat the oven to 350 and spray 12 muffin tins. Whisk together the eggs, half and half and salt in a medium bowl, then evenly distribute among the muffin cups. Add about 2 Tablespoons of mix-ins to each cup. Bake until they're puffy and the edges are brown- 20 to 25 minutes. Loosen with a really cool crepe flipper, or with a knife.


  1. Jenny, thanks for posting! I knew you were harboring lots of good ideas for us- and this one is a plus because it falls into the Uses Lots of Eggs category.

  2. Those do look good, Jenny. And it's a great idea. Can you post your recipe for cupcakes?

  3. And could you post your recipe for homemade Cracklin' Oat Bran? ( We really liked the crunchy one!)

  4. Great idea! We're definitely trying this one at our house soon!
