Mini Frittatas – Corn-free, GF,DF

A quick and easy meal for any time of day and a great use up for leftovers.

Muffin FrittatasThese mini frittatas have saved me many morning when I otherwise wouldn’t have time for breakfast. It’s so easy to heat up a couple and pop them into my purse to eat once I arrive at the office.

The Trouble with Reheating Eggs

Reheating eggs is tricky. These are the perfect size for reheating while maintaining moisture. By accident I found that adding spaghetti squash to the frittatas also helps maintain moisture while adding a delightful hint of sweetness.

Variations

Frittata prepThis recipe is really a convenient way to disguise leftovers. In the pictures shown here, I used the leftover Spaghetti Squash Primavera for my veggies but you can really make this your own. Below are some combos I have tried or intend to try soon. 🙂

  • Black beans and spanish rice (with tomato and onion)
  • Caramelized onions and roasted fennel
  • Mixed roasted vegetables
  • Leftover fried rice

I did try this recipe in a loaf pan lined with toasted dwarf bread. This was the wrong bread to use. The chia seeds made it a little gummy. I still like the concept. I intend to try it again with a different gluten-free bread. I think something with a high coconut flour base would be good as those tend to be dry. An eggy custard soaking into coconut flour bread could only be an improvement! LOL.

Recipe type: Breakfast, Brunch, Lunch, Dinner
Cuisine: Italian
Serves: 12
Ingredients
  • 1½ cup cooked vegetables
  • 1½ cup cooked protein (I used chicken but anything you like will work.)
  • ½ cup cooked quinoa (or rice)
  • 4 eggs, beaten
  • ½ cup nut milk (I make mine with a mixture of almonds and brazil nuts.)
  • salt & pepper to taste
Instructions
  1. Preheat your oven to 350°F.
  2. Place muffin liners in a regular size muffin tin.
  3. Portion out your chicken, veggies and quinoa into each liner.
  4. Mix eggs, nut milk, salt, and pepper in a bowl. Pour into each liner being to about a ¼" from the top.
  5. Bake in to oven for about 20 minutes. The frittatas will puff up but remain slightly shiny in the center.
  6. Cook on a baking rack for 10 minutes then serve.
Notes
The regular size muffin tin is the perfect size to cook through perfectly. I wouldn't try this with a jumbo muffin tin as the inside wouldn't have time to cook through before the outside was tough and leathery. Blech!
