Ugh, mini frittatas. They were such a promising idea while I was trying to continue my trend with H of getting her to eat things in mini muffin form. But I just cannot get these to work. I’ve tried three different versions, and no matter what I do they glue¬†themselves to the inside of the pan. Mine is now a scratched-up mess from trying to liberate them. And, strangely, they seem to shrink up and deflate inside the pan. Not quite what I had in mind.

So, I’m retiring this particular idea. Better people than I have succeeded with this one (Pinterest tells me so), but H was so averse to even trying anything with eggs and green bits that it’s just not worth it.

Which is a shame, because these were tasty.

I basically mixed 6 eggs, a splash of heavy cream, a handful of shredded cheese (I tried cheddar and gruyere), crumbled up bacon (and also just diced bacon in one batch), and whatever greens I had on hand. Parsley, some spinach. One batch had some broccoli in it.

I heavily sprayed my muffin pan with nonstick spray in a nonstick pan, and I baked these at 350 for 15-18 minutes.

My mission to get H eating more food groups continues…with other recipes.
