It’s been a while since I have done a food post, since I have been so wrapped up in fashion lately, but I just had to share this cute brunch recipe with you all. Brunch has to be one of my favorite meals, because it is an excuse to eat breakfast foods later on in the day. I recently experimented with this mini frittata recipe, and it was a big hit! It is so easy to make, and it is perfect for large groups because you can make as many as you want at once (depending on how many muffin tins you own). Here’s how you make them.

Ingredients:

8 Large Eggs

1/4 cup Milk

1/4 cup Half and Half

1/3 cup shredded Gruyere Cheese

4 oz. Smoked turkey (you can also use ham)- chopped into small pieces

1 medium sized onion (chopped)

2 stalks Green Onion (finely chopped)

Salt/ Pepper to taste

Preheat your oven to 375 degrees. First, slowly saute the onion in olive oil until it becomes caramelized. Here is a really good lesson on how to do that. You can also make the caramelized onions ahead of time and keep them in the fridge. Beat 8 large eggs with the milk, half and half, salt and pepper until they become frothy. Then, carefully fold the caramelized onions and all the other ingredients into the beaten egg mixture. You don’t want to mix too vigorously because you will take the air out of the eggs mixture and your frittatas will not puff as nicely.

Spray your muffin tins with nonstick spray. Then fill the muffin tins with the egg mixture.

Place it in the oven and bake for 7-10 minutes until the frittatas become slightly golden and puff up. You may need to periodically rotate the muffin tin to make sure they all cook evenly.

Carefully remove them from the muffin tin, and serve while they are still warm.

This is the perfect addition to a brunch spread, and I could really eat these any time.

Enjoy! Let me know how they turned out!
