Mini Baked Frittata with Broccoli, Bacon, and Sharp Cheddar

I was in the mood for a filling and healthy breakfast so I decided to make a mini frittata just for me.  I had leftover steamed broccoli in the refrigerator along with a piece of bacon leftover from my kids breakfast and some sharp cheddar and threw them together with two eggs before baking them.  The mini frittata turned out light, fluffy, and very flavorful.  I’ve never had broccoli with eggs before and I am so glad I finally tried it because it was so good!  A nice & healthy breakfast that tasted delicious – you can’t beat that!

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.  Coat a mini baking dish with cooking spray.

Mix the eggs with the milk until well combined then season with sea salt and freshly cracked pepper, to taste.  Place a few pieces of steamed broccoli into the mini baking dish; add a little bit of bacon, and cheddar.

Pour the egg mixture into the baking dish then place the remaining broccoli, bacon, and cheddar on top.

Place into the oven and bake for 20-25 minutes, or until a tester inserted into the center comes out clean.  Remove from the oven and serve immediately.  Enjoy.

    Pam: When I didn’t see your recipe change for a few days, I knew you must be having technical difficulties with the new site. I hit my refresh button and was able to pull the new recipes up today. Hang in there…I know it’s stressful, but it will work out and we will have your lovely new webpages to view!

    I made this for myself for lunch today. It came out great and was so easy. I never really thought about making this before. I used bacon bits and a few pieces of frozen broccoli because that is what I had on hand.
    Tasted Great!!

    How cute is that frittata? I need to make more of those and teach Trev how to make his own since this dish opens itself up to so many options.

    After you turned me on to the tip of baking your frittatas in tart pans, I can’t get enough of them! This mini version is so cute. Perfect for using up odds and ends!

    This sounds delicious! I would love this…my kids still think broccoli is best left to the compost bin. But I found that if I made the fritattas in a muffin tin, then I could specialize each one for the picky eaters of choice! It’s kinda like personalized mini pizzas on family pizza night, but with breakfast fritattas! Plus, the kids love deciding what they’ll get and helping to bring it all together!

    I always love a warm savoury breakfast. This sounds just a little healthier than butter on toast – I may have to try this tomorrow!
