Notes:
  • These mini frittatas are a perfect solution for breakfast on-the-go! Make these in advance, cool and then place in a freezer bag. When ready to eat, remove from the freezer bag, and reheat in the microwave. Or reheat several on a foil-lined sheet pan in a 350 degree oven for 15 minutes.
  Fun Tip:
  • - Try other precooked vegetables for a new flavor: corn, squash, peas, broccoli.
  • - Add fresh herbs or arugula as a garnish.
  • - Substitute different cheese for a new twist: swiss, parmesan or mozzarella
