Although I am still loving soup for lunch, I have been thinking about what else I can make ahead of time for lunch during the week.  Then it came to me – mini frittatas!

These are so easy to make and are absolutely delicious!  When I texted Justin to ask him what he thought of them (I packed them for his lunch too!), he texted one word back – “Beautiful”.  God I’m a good cook!  Sometimes I just don’t know WHAT to do with myself!  ;-)

I’m not going to lie, these have a fair amount of fat in them so next time I will be using 12 egg whites and maybe 4 or 5 yolks.  You could also add to them mushroom, zucchini, corn or whatever floats your boat!

Ingredients (makes 15)

12 eggs, lightly whisked (or 12 eggs whites & 4 – 5 yolks)

60g of light tasty cheese, grated

50g of reduced fat feta, crumbled

50g lean leg ham, diced

Handful of baby spinach, roughly chopped

Small handful of flat-leaf parsley, roughly chopped

Olive oil spray

Salt & pepper

Pre-heat oven to 180 degrees.  In a bowl, combine all ingredients.  Spray non-stick muffin trays lightly with olive oil.  Spoon egg mixture into muffin trays so that they are 3/4 of the way filled.  Place the trays into the oven and bake for about 15 minutes.  Keep your eye on them as they tend to puff up a little!

Once the frittatas are firm, take them out of the oven and leave to cool.  Use a knife to loosen them around the edges and then pop them out.

One serving equals 3 frittatas and they are perfect with a little side salad.  They would also be handy as an on-the-run breakfast option and can be enjoyed cold or warm.  And apparently they freeze well too!  Haven’t tried that yet… but google tells me they do!
