I have made these many times and they are always a hit. You can easily change up the ingredients too depending on what is on hand. I admit, I sometimes like to just use whole eggs vs. egg whites.

We like the firmness without the watery inside you some times find in frittatas. Will become a regular family treat. We had them as light lunch with green salad. Made them in regular cupcake pan, and got twelve, not overly large.

We were not impressed with these. Served them at a family get together brunch. We found them kinda dry and bland, no one could really tell there was cheese in it for the fat and calories it added. Had leftovers, didn't care for them reheated either. They weren't the worst we've made from CL, but not the best either.

Doubled the onion and chopped two and a half slices of ham (didn't measure it). Everything else as written. Made exactly 24 mini muffins. Really good for appetizer or addition to breakfast or with soup for dinner.

I didn't get 24 but I think that has to do with separating egg whites. These were SO good & this recipe is going in regular weekly rotation. Such a low calorie count for such a delicious snack. Will experiment next time w/ spinach, mushroom & feta. A little chewy when reheated but not so bad I would make less. Considering doubling the recipe & making a variety.

Omitted the onions & chives for my picky eaters. Couldn't stop eating them. Delicious!

I've used this recipe since it first came out in the magazine. I recently picked it up again & decided to make them in a regular-sized muffin pan (makes 6). Then I baked some biscuits. Each morning, I'd heat up 2 quiche & 2 biscuits. Fast, protein-rich breakfast!

Haven't made these with the ham and cheddar yet, but adapted the recipe and used green onion, reduced fat feta crumbles, and fresh spinach. They are very good, but it doesn't make much. I added about 1/2 cup of the cheese, and an extra whole egg, and made 12 in a regular muffin pan. Flat but tasty - a little salty. Will be making as a vegetarian option for a baby shower brunch - finger foods.

These are good I've made them a few times and changed them up with different additions. They are good to make on a Sunday night and freeze then enjoy for the week for breakfast.

So I used this more as a starting place. I used chopped ham from a spiral cut ham, 5 eggs about a cup of colby cheese. For once I didn't have onions so I used a tablespoon plus of dried chopped onion, a dash of cayenne and black pepper. Supper easy and very yummy. I got 9 muffins.

I used 4x the amount of ham asked for and did 2 whole eggs and 4 egg whites instead. That being said I truly enjoyed these and will be making them again. Three of the mini muffins and a healthy helping of broccoli was a fantastic dinner!

I have made these several times as an hors d'oeuvre. While not knock occur socks off outstanding, this is a solid go-to recipe when everyone else is bringing cheese and crackers and you want something homemade and different.

I thought these were great. I've been looking for a portable, easy, high-protein breakfast I can pack and bring to work - I think this is just the ticket. I doubled the recipe and put them in a standard muffin tin - it made 12 frittatas. I also didn't add the ham mixture to the egg mixture - I divided the egg mixture 12 ways into my muffin tin, and then sprinkled the ham mixture on top (I felt like I more evenly divided the egg and topping that way). Perfect size to put on a toasted english muffin as a egg sandwich!

Just wondering if the nutritional information is on correct, It says 39 calories per serving, and the serving size as 3 frittatas. That seems like there is an error in that.

I served these for a brunch I hosted. They were great! I had no trouble getting the full amount of 28 from this recipe in my mini muffin pan. Quick, easy, cute, and tasty! I will make these again they were a big success!

These were really good. They were easy to make. The only problem I had with them is that it only made 12 mini muffins. I am not sure if my pan was too big, but they are mini muffin pans. Next time I will just double the recipe to get 24 frittats.

These were good. I added spinach and red bell pepper (as suggested by previous reviewers) and did not use any meat.

Excellent finger food. Added some cooked, well drained fresh spinach and finely chopped red pepper. We liked some hot sauce/salsa on them.

I liked this! I used egg substitute as well, and added some sun dried tomatoes. Next time i would probably use habanero cheese, add a jalapeno and maybe some red pepper flakes. I used dried chives I liked them better cooled than hot. Definitely doesn't make 24, but good crowd pleaser! Now i just need to buy my own mini muffin pan!

I've made these several times and take to tailgates for noon kickoffs -- they always fly off the table. Good flavor, easy finger food. I usually make double or triple batch.

Have made this recipe for two different groups and it was well-received both times. The taste was very good, even with the basic recipe. I will add spinach and bell peppers as suggested next time and bake in regular muffin tins so they will be more substantial. They were good for finger food.

I followed some of the tips in the other notes and added half a red bell pepper, chopped, and half a package of frozen spinach, thawed and drained. I also doubled the recipe and made 12 regular size muffins instead of minis; I baked them for 35-40 minutes. This is a filling and tasty breakfast--I will definitely make it again.

This was quick and easy! I made it Mother's Day morning for my calorie-counting Mom. Some of the work I did a day ahead, so all I had to do was mix the ingredients together the morning of! We only used one tablespoon of the fresh chives, otherwise it would have been overpowering with the 1/2 cup of onions.

They taste good - but tiny!! I got 18 SMALL frittatas out of this. I would not say I was able to fill the muffin tins. To me, not worth the effort, though they tasted good.

This recipe is amazing and so versatile. At the suggestion of other reviewers, I added a couple of handfuls of chopped fresh spinach and one finely chopped red bell pepper. Otherwise, I followed the ingredient list exactly. I only have jumbo muffin pans, no mini or regular, so I doubled the recipe and got 12 individual-sized portions. We each ate one with a side of fresh fruit, and it was a perfect lazy Saturday morning breakfast. You could add almost any veggie or meat you had on hand, and it would still be delicious! I would easily serve this to guests, as the addition of color with the spinach and red bell pepper gave it a 5-star brunch-worthy appeal. Wonderful!!!

I just made this recipe for a potluck brunch. The recipe was VERY easy to make. People LOVED them. I used egg substitute (in place of the egg whites and egg), turkey ham, and a RF mexican cheese blend. I can't wait to try these with other ingredients (spinach, tomatoes, etc.).

Children enjoyed these bite size frittatas. More of a snack or part of a breakfast meal. Would recommend for little ones! No complaints on the onions or green "stuff" from the children!

These were very tasty! I don't think you can go wrong with onion, egg and ham. I had a "buffet" for the family this morning with fruits and breads to choose from and so I liked the idea of a little something to pop in your mouth. To the person that complained that the recipe didn't fill 24 mini cups, that would be because you didn't add the ham. There was nothing to displace the egg mixture so you wouldn't have as much to work with............These were tasty, my only problem was that they didn't come out of the of the pan very well. I used Pam, but maybe just not enough. I will make these again.

These were very good. I just read the reviews after making the recipe and wanted to share my experience. People said it did not make 24 mini muffins - mine perfectly made 24 minis - perhaps it is because I used packaged egg whites versus cracking eggs to get egg whites? Also, I used pancetta instead of ham - it was incredibly flavorful - I would even reduce the amount next time. My family woofed them down and I suggest them warm.

These were tasty! I did half cheddar and half Parmesan cheese, it was a nice addition. I feel like they could be better, but it's a workable recipe that I can experiment with. It definitely doesn't make as much as it says. I doubled the recipe and it made about 30. And they are much better warm than at room temp, but even cold, they're not half bad.

I really liked this recipe a lot, and so did my guests. It's definitely best to serve them when they are hot. The recipe will for sure not make 24 of them. It made about 15 for me, and that was with an extra egg white. I also added a little extra cheese, and didn't use any ham. I added some basil as well. Overall, everybody loved them, and wished that more had been made!

These were pretty good. I think they turned out exactly how they should’ve, but for the size of them, it seemed like there was too much of the browned crust-like edges in ratio to the filling. But they were still cute and would be fun to serve for a brunch buffet. I also only filled 12 of the mini muffin cups. I don’t see how it could fill any more as mine looked like the same size as in the photo. I likely won’t make these again, but it’s certainly a good, solid recipe.

Great snack! I added spinach, garlic powder and time I think I will omit the thyme. It's a bit strong for the delicate flavors of the mixture. I used dehydrated onion flakes instead of sauteed onion, and it worked fine. Tomatoes would be good in this as well.

Very Tasty, I would make again. I used 5 whole eggs, I added red bell pepper and 1/2 fresh jalapeno to the onion mixture along with 2 Tbsp butter. I used a skillet to cook the onion mixture and then added the egg mixture to the onions and popped the skillet in the oven for 25-30 minutes. It was more flavorful than I expected.

Should I add milk to my frittata? ›

Adding a bit of dairy, whether it's cream or thick yogurt, is essential for getting the moisture and creaminess of the frittata just right. For every dozen eggs, use a half cup of dairy. It can be cream, whole milk, sour cream, yogurt, crème fraîche, even cottage cheese.

How do you make a frittata not soggy? ›

One reason your frittata is soggy, is that an ingredient you used had water or other liquid that was released when cooking the frittata. One solution, is to drain all ingredients first before mixing, or to reheat the ingredients seperately, until the liquid is removed.

What makes frittata spongy? ›

Dairy, like milk or cream, is a crucial component of frittatas. This is the ingredient that gives frittatas their signature creamy, fluffy texture. Without this important addition, frittatas cook up flatter and a bit more dense. Follow this tip: After whisking the eggs together, be sure to whisk in some milk or cream.

What's healthier frittata or omelette? ›

But unlike omelets, egg frittatas can serve a family fast. And unlike most egg recipes, a four-serving frittata cooks all at once without any flipping or fuss. Plus, since there's no crust (like quiches), it makes it a healthier breakfast option.

What kind of cheese is best for frittata? ›

Some good options include cheddar, gruyere, feta, and goat cheese. Add flavorings: Enhance the flavor of your frittata by adding herbs like thyme, rosemary, or basil, or spices like paprika, cumin, or chili powder. Pre-cook vegetables: Cook any vegetables you plan to add to the frittata before adding them t.

When making a frittata which ingredient should be pre cooked prior to adding it to the egg mixture? ›

This also holds true for aromatics, like onions, and sturdy veggies, like raw potatoes. "They won't get much more tender once you add the beaten eggs," says Perry, "So cook them fully before combining everything." Don't be afraid of getting a little color on the vegetables: That's what makes them so delicious!

What is the best pan for frittata? ›

Use a cast-iron skillet.

I like to use an enameled cast iron skillet, which does not require any pre-seasoning. If you don't have a skillet, go make this breakfast casserole recipe instead.

How do I know when my frittata is done? ›

Cook the frittata in the oven just until the centre is no longer wobbly and the edges are golden-brown. If still unsure, place a knife into the centre of the frittata. If raw eggs run out, keep cooking. You want the eggs to be just set as the frittata will keep cooking while it's standing.

How do you know when to flip a frittata? ›

Replace cover on the skillet, reduce heat to medium-low, and cook until the egg is lightly browned on the bottom, 3 to 5 minutes. Carefully flip the frittata and cook until the bottom is again lightly browned, 1 to 2 minutes more.

Why did my frittata turn GREY? ›

The green-gray color (and the whiff of sulfur smell that often accompanies it) comes from the reaction of iron in the egg yolk and sulfur in the egg white. When heated, the two can combine to make green-gray ferrous sulfide and hydrogen sulfide gas.

How do you fix a bland frittata? ›

At their worst, they're flat, rubbery, and bland. Instead of risking the latter scenario (and disappointing my hungry roommates), I discovered the ingredient that makes every frittata foolproof. It's yogurt, and it adds just enough richness and moisture to make the best frittata you'll ever eat.

Why is my frittata bland? ›

Here, we'll discuss these mistakes and how to fix them. You don't season the frittata. If you don't add seasoning to your frittata, it will end up tasting bland.

What is a fun fact about frittata? ›

The frittata originates from the Mediterranean region, and a very similar dish with eggs, cheese, and vegetables was known in ancient Rome. All the efforts of tracing this dish to a particular Italian region defies attempts, as it is popular all over Italy.

What is the healthiest cheese for an omelette? ›

Cottage Cheese Provides an Extra Boost of Protein

If you haven't yet considered cottage cheese as an omelet filling, I urge you to give it a try. Not just because this breakfast means kicking off the day with nearly 20 grams of protein, but also because it's one of the most delicious things you can do with eggs.

Are frittatas good for you? ›

While often compared to quiche, a frittata is a healthier option because it doesn't have a crust. The benefits are a lot like those of an omelet.

Should you add milk to eggs? ›

What is the frittata formula? ›

The Frittata Ratio to Memorize

So how do you make a great frittata every time without always using a recipe? The answer is a ratio. For every six eggs, use 1/4 cup heavy cream, 1 cup cheese, and 2 cups total of vegetables and/or meat.

When should I add milk to eggs? ›

First, beat the eggs.

Place them in a medium bowl, and whisk until the yolk and whites are thoroughly combined. Add the milk or water, and whisk again! The beaten eggs should be an even yellow color, with no translucent spots or streaks.

Should I put milk in my eggs for an omelette? ›

Do you add milk to an omelette? Many people add either milk or cream to their omelettes in order to bulk them out and have a more substantial dish without the need to add an extra egg. While this does work, it's crucial not to go overboard or you'll end up with a mixture that's too loose.
