Eggs, glorious eggs! We eat them for breakfast, lunch, dinner, or a snack. Eggs are pretty much the perfect food (unless you have an intolerance, of course).
Each perfectly packaged egg contains 6 grams of protein, 5 grams of heart-healthy fats, generous amounts of B vitamins, folate, selenium, vitamins A, D, E, and K, and calcium and zinc. Eggs are also an excellent source of choline, a nutrient critical for brain growth and function. So eat up!
These eggy mini-frittatas take under 30 minutes and one bowl to make. They are a super-healthy, protein-and-veggie-packed meal ready to be eaten whenever hunger strikes. They stay great in the fridge, or you can freeze them. Prep a few trays of them in advance and enjoy them all week.
We used a mini-muffin silicone-baking sheet for automatic portion control and pretty presentation. Plus, our kids gobble up the bite-size bits. Feel free to use regular muffin tins, and just add a few extra minutes to the bake time.
Moms, these are fabulous for school lunches. They travel well for school, long car rides, or adventure days and picnics. Get crackin’!
