Mediterranean-Style Egg Frittata

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’!

Makes: 16 mini-frittatas

  • 4 large eggs
  • 1 cup chopped spinach
  • 1/2 cup cherry heirloom tomatoes
  • 1/2 cup chopped scallions
  • Handful fresh parsley
  • 1/4 cup chopped olives (we used black)
  • 1/4 cup of nutritional yeast or our Vegan Parmesan 
  • 1 teaspoon Himalayan salt
  • Fresh-cracked pepper to your liking
  • 1 teaspoon extra virgin olive oil
  • Optional: Parmesan, crumbled feta, or shredded cheddar cheese
  • Garnish: A drizzle of extra virgin olive oil

Directions

Heat oven to 350 F. Chop veggies and parsley. Add all of the above ingredients to a bowl and mix.

Pour egg mixture into silicone mini-muffin sheet and bake for 17–20 minutes, depending on your oven strength.

Let cool for a few minutes. Drizzle with extra virgin olive oil and enjoy!
