Egg Frittata Muffins

I’m one of those people who always wakes up hungry. By the time I brush my teeth and walk the dog, my stomach is rumbling. When it comes to breakfast during the work week, I don’t mess around. I want to eat something quick, easy and filling. I created these Egg Frittata Muffins because I can make a bunch of muffins at once and then warm up the leftovers through-out the week. These muffins are healthy, filled with goodness and will make you look forward to your week day alarm.

Getting up after a holiday weekend was rough! Too much food and not enough sleep. Oh, and I woke up a bunch of times to scratch all of my mosquito bites….only to remind myself, “those bites won’t heal if you keep scratching them, Meghan!” So then I layed in bed trying not to think about how much my skin was on fire.

Needless to say, I wasn’t enthused to kick off my Monday. However, I was thankful I planned ahead and made these Egg Frittata Muffins on Sunday when we got home from the lake. Egg Frittata Muffins are filled with spinach, ricotta cheese, onions and dill. Instead of making a traditional frittata in a pie dish, I portioned out the egg mixture into a muffin pan. This recipe makes about 10 egg frittata muffins. So you can have 2 a day and you’ve got breakfast all ready for the week! Just microwave the leftover muffins for about 30-45 seconds.

Hopefully tonight’s sleep will be less scratchy… But if is a mosquito bite scratch-fest, atleast I know I won’t need to worry about making breakfast. I’ve got Egg Frittata Muffins waiting for me. :)

Egg Frittata Muffins

Ingredients

  • 2 tsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 1/2 onion, diced
  • 2 cups spinach, torn
  • 6 eggs
  • 1/2 cup ricotta cheese (I used part skim)
  • 1/4 cup Parmesan cheese
  • 1 tbsp fresh dill or 1 tsp dried dill
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp red pepper flakes

Instructions

  1. Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees and coat muffin pan with cooking spray. (For me, this recipe makes 10 egg muffins.)
  2. Heat oil in a skillet and add onion. Cook for 5 minutes. Add spinach and cook for 1 minutes. Set aside and let the mixture cool.
  3. In a medium bowl, combine eggs, ricotta cheese, Parmesan cheese, dill, salt & red pepper flakes. While stirring quickly, add the onion mixture. Spoon egg mixture into the muffin pan. Fill each muffin cup 3/4 quarter full.
  4. Bake for 20 minutes. You'll know when the muffins are cooked when a toothpick is inserted and it comes out clean. Let the muffins cool (they will fall!) and use a butter knife to help remove them from the pan.

    Meghan,
    Turning a traditional frittata into muffins was ingenious! We like to make muffins out of a lot of our favorites for a few reasons – portion control, eating on-the go healthier, easy to make ahead and store in the refrigerator or freezer.

    Your photos are beautiful throughout the website and can’t wait to try your vegetarian recipes first.

    Cheers,
    Marie

      That’s ok!! They are on the healthy side!

    I have something eerily similar in my freezer right now. Love these. Never thought to add ricotta and dill. Will have to try that next time.

    If you ever want to make them a wee bit “fancier”, line the muffin tin with a couple of wonton wrappers before you add the egg mixture. They make great apps for a brunch (did them for Lilly’s tutu party).

      Yum! I love how you get Lilly to eat like a grown up! Wonton Wrappers is a great idea!

      I didn’t used to be a big breakfast person until I met my husband. Breakfast is his favorite meal. I came around to breakfast, but more on the savory side of breakfast.

    Those look delicious Meghan! I need to get better about eating a healthy breakfast. I don’t think a granola bar and zero vitamin water count :)

    My mom and I used to make something like these. I think she found them in a South Beach Diet cookbook. Haha. But ours DID NOT have ricotta! So that means that these are WAY better.

    I am SO bad about eating breakfast! I love that these can be made ahead of time and will last through the week. You seriously must have been thinking of me when you added the dill.

    These are great! I need to make some for the freezer!

  12. Krista @ joyfulhealthyeats says

    Love that you turned the normal frittata into a muffin. Perfect to grab and go in the morning. Plus.. so much healthier than a muffin. Lots of protein and fiber from the spinach. Pinning these! :) Oh.. stop scratching!

    Yum! I’m all for breakfasts that I can make ahead because I often have two lunches to make on top of making breakfast. Anything to make my mornings easier is OK by me :)
