Delicious Muffin-Tin Breakfast Frittatas!

One of my "October Goals," if you will, is to make breakfast a bigger deal in our house. Most mornings it goes unnoticed and quickly dissipates into a mid-morning snack followed by lunch. My daily breakfast? Typically consists of a large mug of creamer with a little splash of coffee. I know, not ideal. But so necessary. 

After coming across this pin:

I thought to myself, "not only do those look delicious but they look super easy to do and would be a GREAT springboard for making breakfast A Bigger Deal." Without having to make a run to the grocer, I scrounged around in the fridge and pulled together the ingredients I would need to recreate this easy and fun breakfast dish! 

1. Gather your ingredients. You'll need:
  • 5 eggs
  • 1/2c half and half
  • shredded cheese to taste
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • your "fixin's:" I chose to use orange pepper, spinach and mushroom. sausage, cubed ham or even chopped bacon would have been divine and will certainly be a welcome addition the next time this makes an appearance in the M kitchen!
  • cooking spray
  • muffin tin
2. Grease the individual cups of your muffin tray while chopping your "fixin's"

3. Beat eggs in small mixing bowl and add cream. Sprinkle with salt and pepper and mix well.

4. Pour egg and cream mixture into muffin cups. Fill about 1/2 way. 

5. Sprinkle desired amount of cheese in each cup and begin adding your "fixin's!"

6. Bake at 350* for 25-30 minutes. You may need to go around the edges with a butter knife to release from cups when finished! 

7. Enjoy. 

Happy Tuesday, Loyals! And T.G.F.P! {Thank God For Pinterest!)

  1. Yum-o! I think every recipe I've found lately has been from Pinterest searching HA! I don't know what I did before that website...

  2. These are bites of perfection!!!

  3. This looks so yummy! Thanks for sharing!

  4. Aaaaand we're making these for breakfast tomorrow. I don't care that it's going to be a Wednesday. It's happening.


  5. Actually, question: How many frittatas did this yield? There's only two of us so I don't need a whole lot. The 5 eggs in the ingredients list made me think it makes about a dozen? ;) Do they keep well?

  6. I'm not usually into the recipes people post, but this one is awesome. Thanks for sharing!

  7. Oh my goodness these look delicious. Thanks so much for sharing, I'll be making these up tonight to have for those crazy mornings (who am I kidding...that is every day!). :)

  8. I had a similar recipe on my blog recently for something like this! Love these because you can individually wrap them and eat them throughout the week!

  9. This looks delish! I think I'll make them Sunday morning! Thanks for the recipe!

  10. Totally making this one weekend soon - thanks for linking up, love!! :o)

  11. I need to make these! I made some similar last month but they ended up a little funny ;) I was also thinking about how they would freeze?? Wouldn't it be great to make a big batch and then be able to take a few out different mornings when you don't have much time?! Yummy!

  12. Yummy! I love breakfast but rarely prepare it! TGFM-thank goodness for mcd's ;)

  13. Yum! I love making those too. Breakfast is my favorite meal and it's so fun to do something special once in a while :-)
