On-the-Go Frittatas

I've heard that breakfast is the most important meal of the day. I haven't listened to that sage bit of advice, but I have heard it. Before work, I run around like a crazy person trying to get ready for the day, and breakfast doesn't always make the cut. As such, one of my New Year's resolutions is to make sure and eat a proper breakfast everyday. First up...

On-the-Go Frittatas!

Basically, I made a very simple egg mixture (5 eggs & 1/2 carton of Egg Beaters and less than 1/4 cup of milk) and mixed with a few yummy breakfast ingredients. For these, I used bacon, onion, garlic, baby spinach leaves, and Parmesan. I mixed it all in a bowl, then poured it into a muffin tin for an easy grab-and-go breakfast packed with protein. 

Baked at 350 degrees till they were puffy and golden brown. A good non-stick pan is a must or you'll be prying dried egg of the tin forever--I love mine from Sur La Table. These little egg muffins were so easy and so tasty, I immediately begin making a list of future combinations. I plan on making them Sunday nights and eating them throughout the week. 

Turkey sausage + red bell pepper + sauteed onions + cheddar

asparagus + tomato + basil + smoked mozzarella

bacon + cheddar + green onions

 leek + red bell pepper

prosciutto + Manchego cheese

What do you eat in the morning before heading to work? Taking all suggestions for healthy breakfasts!


  1. I'm so lame! I have a piece of wheat toast and tea. wahhh wahhh Your frittatas need to be in my life.

  2. These little frittatas are perfect for on the go! They are actually great to take to potlucks also. I have this three tier cupcake caddy so it would be great to take to a party with em - these frittatas on layer, and cupcakes on the other!

  3. Those would be SO perfect for a little brunch soiree! And Manchego is my absolute fave!

  4. Sure beats the piece of toast I just ate! I just made something very similar. I love my Sur La Table muffin pan. Are you sure we aren't long lost relatives! Have a great week.

  5. I did make these for a brunch baby shower I hosted in the summer and they were a hit. (So easy to make a day ahead and reheat for a party too!).

  6. I never knew frittatas were so easy! How long do you bake them for and at what temp?
