baby-fritattas.jpg

These baby-frittatas are so cute I want to squeeze them like I squeeze Kenya's tushy! These fritattas are not only petite and cute, but they're also delicious. There were several adults over when 
I made them and we left Kenya with only 2. Good thing they were so 
fast and easy to make, so I could easily whip together another batch. Even better is that every baby-frittata has a protein from the egg, two vegetables and a dairy.
Asparagus is a nutrient-dense vegetable high in folic acid and also a good source of fiber. Besides their beautiful bright green color, in my experience, wee ones love them. With the addition of parmesan to add a salty flavor and sun dried tomatoes to add a little tang, these baby-frittatas will be a hit with 
everyone in the family. You could even serve them at a party for hors d'oeuvres.


We used these to make this recipe_

    Could these be frozen once cooked? How would you reheat them?

      She has instructions in the book- this is my paraphrased version.

      remove them from the tin and place them on parchment paper on a cookie sheet. Freeze for about 30 minutes, then place in a ziplock bag and put back in the freezer. Warm them in the microwave from frozen for a minute (add more time as needed).

    Just a small tip. When I made these I used a small bowl with a spout so that the egg mixture poured into each tin without mess. Egg mix comes out pretty quick :o)

    Funny, I was just thinking about making frittatas for my little girl. She LOVES your spinach & ricotta bites so much I'm sure these will also be a big hit.

    I made these for lunch today! I tweaked the recipe a bit - traded some of the veggies - they are AMAZING!!! Thanks for the recipe! :)

    QUICK TIP: I just made these and used (what I thought was a lot of) butter to grease the tins, and it wasn't quite enough. Be liberal with your greasing! Otherwise, these turned out AWESOME! Can't wait for my little to wake from nap and see what she thinks! She won't eat eggs scrambled or otherwise...so fingers crossed!

    I made mine with the sundried tomatoes, diced bits of organic turkey meat, and diced up spinach! YUMMMMM~

    Hi,

    Do the asparagus have to be cooked before adding to the egg?
    Thanks

    these are awesome! I used a silicone mold similar to the one seen in the video and added a little prosciutto for fun.

    I just made these with baby spinach and shredded zucchini and they are great! You just need to squeeze the water out of the zucchini.

    I'm really curious about freezing also! I'd love to keep these in the freezer for morning when we in a rush. Have you tried freezing them? How would you suggest reheating? THANKS!!!!

    I love this recipe. And I have adapted it several ways using leftover veggies and the plethora of mild chiles from our garden. A little bit of chopped steak or bacon and my husband is in heaven...
    Thank you!

    I can't figure out what I did wrong. Mine puffed up HUGE in the oven and then deflated to empty shells of air when I took them out. Over-cooked? Over-beaten? Not beaten enough? I expected these to be a bit dense like a quiche rather than hollow like Yorkshire pudding. Help please! :o)
