It's a great recipe to involve the kids in prepping a healthy snack (or you can just sneak in the veggies, too!) because you can play with the ingredients you and your child wants.
If your mornings are always rushed, then this quick dish is perfect for you. Prep the veggies and cheese in the evening then just mix and bake in the morning. Pack this as your child's baon or make it you're on-the-go breakfast!
Makes 12 pieces Prep Time 12 minutes Cooking Time 10 to 12 minutes
Here's what you'll need:
8 large eggs 1/2 cup evaporated milk 1 teaspoon salt 1 teaspoon black pepper 1/3 cup diced sweet or spiced ham 1/3 cup grated melting cheese 1/2 cup diced zucchini 1/4 cup diced red bell pepper oil for greasing
1 In a large bowl, whisk together eggs, milk, salt, and pepper. Stir in ham, cheese, zucchini, and red bell pepper.
2 Grease a 12-cup regular muffin pan with oil. Using a ladle, fill muffin cups with egg mixture until three-fourths full.
3 Bake in a preheated 375ºF oven until mixture puffs and sets in the center, about 10 to 12 minutes. Using a rubber spatula, loosen frittatas from the muffin cups and transfer to a platter.
Veggie tip: Make this into a vegetarian dish by omitting the ham and adding more veggies. Play around with different vegetables such as blanched broccoli, fried eggplant, or roasted squash.
