It all begins with a base recipe of a dozen eggs, sliced green onions, and salt and pepper to taste. From there, it’s up to your imagination.

While there are countless combinations of frittatas, these are our favorites. The kids love them, as you will see in the photo below. The adults and older kids love the variety, the portability… and I love that it’s an easy weekend fix. That will last, maybe, all week long. Which, of course, depends on how many people are in the kitchen while I’m making them.

Tomato, Greens and Mozzarella Mini Frittatas

Always my mom’s favorite, this frittata is a combination of healthy greens, chopped or halved cherry tomatoes, and sprinkled with shredded mozzarella. Use your favorite green, or what you have in the produce bin. Almost any green works!

Bacon and Cheddar Mini Frittatas

With two simple ingredients, (bacon and shredded cheddar cheese) this is a perennial favorite with the kids. I will cook 4 slices of bacon, drain, and crumble. That gives me enough for the frittatas, a few extra to garnish the top, and a few to nibble on too.

Broccoli and Cheddar Mini Frittatas

This frittata requires only two ingredients as well; thinly sliced broccoli florets and shredded Cheddar Cheese. To that base, I will often include a dash of garlic powder and some red pepper flakes, depending on the eaters that week. Often, this is the one I reach for first.

My niece, Isabella, is my favorite helper in the kitchen. Such a sweetie, she helps make a taste test and even set up photos. As you can see, she likes to add a bit of pepper. The Bacon and Cheddar frittatas are her and her brother’s favorites!

Making and Serving the Mini Frittatas

These Mini Frittatas are easily made in a nonstick 12-cup muffin tin. While you can use paper to line the muffin cups, I prefer to generously coat them with cooking spray. Fill each muffin cup 1/2 to 3/4 of the way up the sides of the tin. Then add the toppings before baking.

After the frittatas bake in the oven for 20 minutes, let them cool in the pan for an additional 5 minutes. Then, using a spatula or plastic knife, gently loosen the frittata from the edges of the cup and serve. 

Quite often I will prep additional veggies to serve alongside the frittatas. Chopped avocados are incredible, and a green salad is always a good choice. 

How to Store the Mini Frittatas?

Refrigerator – 5 Days:

These frittatas will keep refrigerated in airtight containers for up to 5 days. Then, reheat for 10 to 15 seconds in the microwave before eating. Although… they’re super good cold too. Yes, from personal experience, although I think I’m the only one in the family to eat them cold. 

Freezer – 2 Months:

After the frittatas have completely cooled, wrap individually in plastic wrap then add to a freezer zip-top bag. Freeze for up to 2 months. To reheat, remove the plastic wrap, and then wrap in a damp paper towel and microwave in 20-second increments until warm.
