I really love my cheese and bacon mini quiche recipe, often making some and freezing for kids school lunch box. This frittata bite recipe would have to be one of my next favourites. I sometimes make these up for lunch over the weekend using up any vegetables or meat that are lingering in the fridge.
My recipe below says to use bacon, zucchini, capsicum and spring onion. I usually just use whatever meat and vegetables I have on hand. In the picture below I’ve used:
- red onion
- diced silverside
Chop up enough meat and vegetables you have to half fill each muffin cup. Remember to grease the tray, frittata’s are really easy to remove with a silicone spatula.
If we have any leftovers (only when I make up a double batch) I pop them into the kids’ lunchboxes with a little bit of salad.
lunchbox pictured above is available online here.
I can’t resist adding some salt and cracked pepper onto mine… noms!!
