This recipe is a keeper. I did not have the exact ingredients, so I used an Italian blend of cheese instead of swiss. I also seasoned it with what i had on hand. This was so good that my 3 and 5 year ate it. One thing I did notice is that with the size of my muffin cups this recipe made 12 and I only cooked it for 20 minutes. Thanks for a great recipe.
Great way to sneak nutritious breakfast into teen daughter before school!
These were a hit! They would be a great addition to a brunch table, and I would also send these in my child's lunchbox for a healthy and tasty lunch item. I used what I had in my fridge, so instead of ham, bacon, added green onion, and used a tex mex cheese instead of swiss. Yum!
I've made these three times since the end of January (it's mid-February as I write). The first time, I made them exactly as written, the second time, I swapped spinach for the zucchini and the last time, I used smoked gouda instead of swiss and chives instead of parsley. It's a great base to experiment with but the original was great too. Next time, I think I might add chopped &sauteed onion, and possibly broccoli. I get 12 frittatas out of this recipe.
Love this recipe for breakfast! I made about 2 dozen and froze most except 5 for the work week. At work , I would microwave for 1 minute and sometimes use 1 tsp of salsa if I wanted a little spice. I also used different cheeses and veggies for variety, ie, cheddar and chopped red and yellow peppers.
Delicious! Super easy and versatile! I used Gruyere and doubled the recipe. Used 6 eggs and 2 whites. This recipe is very forgiving and you can do a lot with it. I also added fresh herbs and pepper, next time will try feta,spinach and diced onions.Excellent as its written. Have it for dinner with a nice glass of sauvignon blanc.
Great recipe. Only thing I changed was to use jack cheese instead of Swiss. Interesting how the quinoa takes on the favors of the other ingredients. Has a wheaty-vege taste more than ham and cheese taste. Will definitely experiment with it. Mine made 11 cupcakes and worked out to be only 3 Weight Watcher points each.
This recipe is great! Made this with a tiny substitution. I used some bacon and pepperoni instead of ham. Just didn't have ham on hand. This was awesome! Great taste. Easty to make, and I reheated the leftovers the next night, and they were great! Try them and don't be afraid of substituting different meats and veggies.
