I have never been much of a breakfast person. Well, unless its a jumbo double chocolate chip muffin which has been heated up in the microwave for 25 seconds so the chocolate chips just barely start to melt and then each bite just warms you up a bit as you devour the entire thing in less than 2 minutes. But, like I said, I have never been much of a breakfast person. I usually just grab a glass of Orange Juice, maybe a few pieces of dried fruit and call it a meal. Lately, since I have been training for my half marathon, I am having to eat a little more of a substantial breakfast so I can get through my runs with plenty of energy.
The last thing I want to do in the morning is make a mess of my perfectly cleaned kitchen which is why these mini frittatas are the perfect thing for me! You can make them with any vegetables you have laying around your kitchen, a bit of cheese and any herbs you have as well and you have yourself one perfect breakfast! The even better thing about these is that you can make them once or twice a week and then just grab one of two out of the fridge as you need them. Its seriously simple. And delicious. And perfect…
- 1 red bell pepper, diced
- 1 yellow bell pepper, diced
- 1 zucchini, diced
- 1 small onion, diced
- 1 cup Parmesan cheese
- 8-10 eggs, beaten together
- 2 tbsp chives
- salt and pepper to taste
- olive oil for drizzling
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a large 10 inch skillet heat the olive oil over medium high heat. Saute the diced zucchini, onion and red and yellow bell peppers for about 5 minutes until they are slightly soft. Season with salt and pepper. Add the sauteed vegetables to individual muffin molds.
- In another bowl, whisk together 8 eggs and season with salt and pepper and add the chopped chives. Fill the remaining area in the muffin tin with the egg and stir the ingredients together. Sprinkle the top with the Parmesan cheese. Bake in the oven for 10-12 minutes until the eggs are completely set. Serve warm or cold.
