  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Grease 6 muffin cups.
  2. Bring the quinoa and water to a boil in a saucepan. Reduce heat to medium-low, cover, and simmer until the quinoa is tender and the water has been absorbed, 15 to 20 minutes.
  3. Combine cooked quinoa, eggs, egg whites, zucchini, Swiss cheese, ham, parsley, Parmesan cheese, and white pepper in a large bowl and mix until thoroughly combined. Spoon mixture to the top of each prepared muffin cup.
  4. Bake in preheated oven until the edges of frittatas are golden brown, about 30 minutes. Allow to cool at least 5 minutes in the pan before serving. Serve hot or cold.

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.

This was just okay. I made no changes to the recipe. No idea why it didn't turn out as well as other reviewers.

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 had never cooked with Quinoa before, as I am not uptight, but I was so surprised at the great nutritional values, and wonderful taste! This recipe is a winner! It was so easy to make! I didn't have the suggested ingredients so I used finely chopped bacon, and a blend of shredded cheeses. WOW. What a treat. I had a few guests over, and after a sizeable joint, we all thoroughly enjoyed these Quinoa Frittatas! I'd recommend it to anyone.

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.

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.

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.
