On-the-Go Frittatas

I’ve heard that breakfast is the most important meal of the day. I haven’t listened to that sage bit of advice, but I have heard it. Before work, I run around like a crazy person trying to get ready for the day, and breakfast doesn’t always make the cut. As such, one of my New Year’s resolutions is to make sure and eat a proper breakfast everyday. First up…

On-the-Go Frittatas!

Basically, I made a very simple egg mixture (5 eggs & 1/2 carton of Egg Beaters and less than 1/4 cup of milk) and mixed with a few yummy breakfast ingredients. For these, I used bacon, onion, garlic, baby spinach leaves, and Parmesan. I mixed it all in a bowl, then poured it into a muffin tin for an easy grab-and-go breakfast packed with protein. 
Baked at 350 degrees till they were puffy and golden brown. A good non-stick pan is a must or you’ll be prying dried egg of the tin forever–I love mine from Sur La Table. These little egg muffins were so easy and so tasty, I immediately begin making a list of future combinations. I plan on making them Sunday nights and eating them throughout the week. 
Turkey sausage + red bell pepper + sauteed onions + cheddar
asparagus + tomato + basil + smoked mozzarella
bacon + cheddar + green onions
 leek + red bell pepper
prosciutto + Manchego cheese

What do you eat in the morning before heading to work? Taking all suggestions for healthy breakfasts!

    Sure beats the piece of toast I just ate! I just made something very similar. I love my Sur La Table muffin pan. Are you sure we aren’t long lost relatives! Have a great week.

    I did make these for a brunch baby shower I hosted in the summer and they were a hit. (So easy to make a day ahead and reheat for a party too!).

    The frittatas are so cute! and they look so handy, especially ’cause, like you, I don’t eat breakfast always (practically never, actually).

    What a great idea! I would totally grab one of these on the mornings I’m running too late for a real breakfast, which is pretty much every morning.
