Why I Love This Recipe
So yes, this is technically being filed under the baby food section of WGC, but let me tell you... these Zucchini Feta Frittatas are great for the entire family. Easy little egg bites filled with zucchini to get some greens, plus some feta for that salty briny bite, it's heaven in a bite. I've been prepping them ahead on the weekends and re-heating in a toaster oven or microwave for 15-20 seconds in the morning to serve. They are truly perfection.

Step 3: In another bowl, whisk together 8 eggs and season with salt and pepper and add the chopped chives and feta.
Step 4: Fill the remaining area in the muffin tin with the egg, gently stirring the ingredients together. Bake in the oven for 10-12 minutes until the eggs are completely set.
How to Store Zucchini Feta Frittatas

Tips & Tricks
This is one of those recipes that preps ahead beautifully! I bake these in the oven but you could easily do them in a countertop oven if you prefer or even... gasp.... in a microwave if you're using a microwave safe vessel for cooking. They are easy to eat and easier to make and you can jazz them up with any number of mix ins. A few of my favorites are:
- Roasted red peppers, chopped
- Leftover roasted squash, broccoli, potatoes or just about any other veggie.
- Any kind of cheese minus blue cheese (that's just out families personal preference)
Can I prepare the frittata mixture ahead of time?
Sure can! Prep the mixture the night before, refrigerate, and then bake them in the morning.
How is a frittata different from an omelet?
A frittata is baked and an omelet is done on the stove top in a nonstick skillet!
What's the difference between a frittata and a quiche?
The ratio of cream to eggs is what makes a frittata different than a quiche and the addition of a crust! Frittata's are crustless and quiche typically have a crust of some sort.
