Mini Frittatas

When making hors d'oeuvres for a crowd, try these little frittatas or your own favorite recipes for cornbread, quiche, or sweet or savory muffins. Chop fillings extra fine, and bake for a third as long as you normally would--eight to ten minutes for most recipes.

Mini Frittatas

Source: Martha Stewart Living, November 1996

Ingredients

  • 1 medium zucchini
  • 4 to 6 white mushrooms
  • 1 red bell pepper
  • 1 yellow bell pepper
  • 16 large eggs
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 3/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 tablespoon chopped chives
  • 1/2 cup finely grated Gruyere or fontina cheese
  • Vegetable-oil cooking spray

Directions

  1. Lightly spray two 24-mini-muffin tins with vegetable-oil spray. Slice zucchini into 1/8-inch rounds. Slice mushrooms lengthwise into 1/8-inch pieces. Core and seed red and yellow bell peppers. Chop into 1/8-inch dice, and set aside.

  2. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. In a large mixing bowl, whisk eggs, salt, pepper, and chives, and set aside. Arrange cut zucchini, mushrooms, and peppers in each muffin tin. Ladle egg mixture into each tin, just even with the rim, and sprinkle with cheese.

  3. Transfer to oven, and bake until frittatas are set, 8 to 10 minutes. Serve warm, or reheat briefly at 325 degrees.

    I made these for a quilting brunch, although I spayed the pan well the eggs stuck and overflowed. They tasted good but looked rather unappetizing, certainly not like in the picture.

    These are outstanding, if you're watching your carbs. I keep them on hand to snack on and to take to work.

    I made these for a Mother's Day Brunch. They will stick very badly unless lubricated well or made in the silicone muffin trays (which worked VERY well). They were a big hit and you can make the mixture ahead of time which is helpful.

    i made these and they were tasty. i can't eat peppers so i used tomatoes. it was delicious and i was asked for the recipe.

    Made these for a cocktail party, and they were tasty, but rose a little too much during baking. To get better results, I would dice all the veg, fill tins with less egg mixture and also fill them below the rim. I refrigerated the frittatas after baking and reheated them later which worked just fine.
