On-The Go Frittata Muffins

Here is the recipe for one of my favorite breakfasts for someone who is busy and needs a quick grab-and-go meal. I make up a batch of these on the weekend and toss them in the freezer. Then, when I wake up, I pop one in the oven on low heat as I’m brushing my hair and voila! It’s warmed up and ready for me to munch on with a side of avocado before I walk out the door to catch the bus. It’s easy to customize as well so you don’t get bored and it will fuel you a lot better than that bowl of Cheerios.
Cooking time/temp: 
20 minutes
Ingredients: 

12 eggs

1 cup of veggies

¼ cup of protein

2 tablespoons of fat

Salt and pepper to taste

2 tablespoons of whole milk (optional)

Cheese (optional)

Fat to grease the muffin tin

Instructions: 
  1. Preheat the oven to 325 degrees.

  2. In a big bowl whisk up the eggs so they are well-combined. If you’d like to add milk for a more fluffy, creamy consistency, do so now.

  3. Add the veggies, protein, and fat to the egg mix. For veggies, I use whatever is handy around the house, some of my favorites include leeks, zucchini, chard/kale, squash, garlic, onions, broccoli, cauliflower, carrots, etc. If you are using a harder vegetable like carrots or squash, cook it first by sauteeing or steaming lightly before adding to the mix. Choose your own adventure when it comes to protein too! I love bacon, sausage or leftover roasted chicken. As for fat, melted coconut oil, butter, olive oil are some of my faves.Since fat is the building block for steroid hormones, including the sex hormones such as estrogen, progesterone and testosterone, it is important to make sure you get a good supply of healthy fats. I’ve even got an easy recipe to make butter at home here!

  4. Use a paper towel to generously grease the inside of a muffin tin.

  5. Pour the frittata mixture into the muffin tins, leaving a little room so they can rise a bit when they cook

  6. Bake until the egg is cooked (~10-15 minutes). As an option, grate a little cheese on top in the last 2-3 minutes of cooking. They should easily pop out of the muffin tins when done.

  7. Cool and toss into a bag in the freezer.

  8. For breakfast, just pop one out and warm up in the oven on low heat for about 10 minutes

  9. Enjoy!!
