Make Ahead Mini Spinach & Mushroom Frittatas

In my attempt to eat better and live a healthier lifestyle I’ve been looking for meals that can be prepared in advance and keeps for a few days. Especially breakfast since a lot of days I hit the snooze button until I have just enough time to get ready and there’s no time to make breakfast. Bad I know, I’m working on being more of an early riser. Anyway, I’ll end up eating a cereal bar which is not filling or buying breakfast which gets expensive. I love a good omelet but that’s just too much work for me on a weekday so I decided to try these mini frittatas which are like bite sized omelets. You can tweak this recipe to add what you want.

What you will need…

Mini 12 count muffin pan

cooking spray

2 Large Eggs

3 cups baby spinach

2 cups crimini mushrooms, chopped

1 cup onion, chopped

1/4 cup crumbled feta cheese

1/4 cup mozzarella cheese (optional)

1 tbsp olive oil

salt

pepper

Preparation…

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Coat a frying pan with the olive oil and saute the onions until they begin to carmelize.

Add the mushrooms, sprinkle with a little salt & pepper, and cook until the water dries out.

Add the spinach to the pan and saute until it begins to welt. Chop and mix with the onion and mushrooms.

Spray the muffin pan with cooking spray and the distribute the veggie mixture evenly.

Beat the eggs along with the feta cheese, a little salt and pepper, and pour into each muffin well. Try not to overflow. Some Feta will have settled in the bottom so just distribute it to each pan evenly.

Top with the mozzarella cheese. Bake for about 25-30 minutes until a toothpick inserted comes out clean. Put in the broiler for 2 minutes to slightly brown.

Let cool completely and store in a airtight container. The longest I’ve kept them in the fridge was three days as myself and my little man usually has two a piece. To reheat, pop them in the oven while you take your shower or microwave them for 40 seconds. Either way works well.

Each mini frittata is only 52 calories so feel free to enjoy more than one. I like to enjoy mine with a piece of toast or some crispy hash browns.

Enjoy!
