A Frittata is a type of an Italian baked omelet, either simple or can be filled with any variety of vegetable, meat, and cheese, very much like a crust-less quiche or scrambled eggs. A Frittata can be prepared in a frying pan just like an omelete or can be baked in a pie plate, cake pan, or cast iron skillet.
For me, the idea of Mini Frittatas originated from Food Network Channel, 30 minutes meal from Rachel Ray, preparing Frittatas in Muffin cups with Ham & Cheese. This version of mine uses fresh green Bell Peppers & Red onions to keep the taste light but terrific.
So, if you want something pretty to serve but easy to make when you're sitting down with the paper/notebook on the weekend or grabbing breakfast on the go as you head out to work, these Mini Frittatas makes an ideal Healthy Breakfast or Sunday Brunch.
