Frittata Muffins

Always hangry? On the go? Rushing to the gym, pilates, yoga, work, or uni? Grab one of these frittata muffins to keep you going when you don’t have enough time to cook a proper meal. Even if you aren’t in a rush, they are the perfect snack when that gap between lunch and dinner is just too long! This recipe makes 12 mini frittatas and is entirely made out of eggs, bacon bits, vegetables, and spices; so it is delicious and paleo-friendly.

You will need to get yourself 9 large eggs, and beat them in a bowl with salt and pepper. Next, add three garlic cloves, and a teaspoon of oregano for flavor. Additionally, fry some bacon bits (approx. 250 g) and drain the excess fat.

As always, I used the Magimix food processor to cut up my vegetables, but you could also grate them for a similar result.

This recipe is entirely customisable and you can add any vegetables and spices you want. You could also leave out the bacon bits to make them vegetarian, or substitute the bacon for diced chicken bits. In this recipe, I used one courgette and two carrots. Try to drain as much of the vegetable water as you can in order to make sure the frittata doesn’t get too soggy.

I also added a chopped red bell pepper and a diced red onion.Then, I combined all the vegetables and bacon in a large bowl and poured over egg mixture. Make sure to mix well and then spoon the mixture into a greased muffin tin (or tin with muffin liners).

Bake at 190 °C for 15-20 minutes depending on the size of your muffins. Make sure to check that they are cooked through all the way, as the first time I made the muffins, the centre was still raw and they had to go back into the oven.
