Cheesy Mini Frittatas

I’m not proud of it, but breakfasts in our house are often lacking. Cereal. Greek yogurt. Peanut butter toast. Granola bar. Maybe a hardboiled egg. Something that is quick and fast is usually what we go for. I decided last week that it was time to add something a little more substantial to our rotation that was still pretty easy to make and grab on the go. These Cheesy Mini Frittatas are just that.

I spoil my family on the weekends with breakfasts of eggs, bacon and potatoes or pancakes but the weekdays are different. Mornings are so busy in this house, and the boys aren’t even in school yet! We used to make smoothies every morning, which I felt pretty good about us eating but after eating them every morning we got kind of smoothied out. And I just don’t have the time to make a good hot breakfast during the work week. These mini fritatas are the perfect solution. You can make a bunch of them, keep them in the fridge, heat them up and bam you’ve got yourself a quick and easy hot breakfast.

You could really put anything that you want in these mini frittatas. I chose green onions because I like the subtle oniony flavor with my eggs. I chose tomatoes because they are pretty much my favorite. Kerrygold Dubliner makes an appearance because it’s subtle, slightly sweet and adds the right amount of cheese without over powering the eggs. And then there is bacon because…bacon.

With that said, the options with mini frittatas are pretty much endless. You could add diced zucchini, red onion, mushrooms and leave out the bacon for packed vegetarian frittatas. You could do tomato, basil and mozzarella for a caprese version or some bell peppers and ham for a Denver Omelet version. Whatever you chose, it’ll be nice to have a hot breakfast every morning am I right?

Disclosure: I was sent the cheeses by Kerrygold and this post is my entry for a giveaway for members of the Kerrygold Blogger Loyalty Program. All opinions are my own.

    I want these to be as fresh as possible, but don’t want too much work in the morning. Do you think I could cook and cut the bacon the day before??

    These are fantastic! Made them with seasoned bacon, cherry tomatoes, and parmesan; They cooked for 15 minutes, came out perfect. 10/10 make again.

    Cheesy mini frittatas are delicious. I would recommend them to anybody. They can also be made for lunch in kids lunch boxes or for the weekend.

    If you’re “not proud” of having toast for breakfast on weekdays, I think you’d be ashamed to see a Norwegian breakfast… Suffice to say, toast is a delicacy reserved for weekends. There’s usually just plain bread (non-toasted), with some butter and a slice of ham or cheese. In fact, we are so fond of this boring bread + stuff-to-put-on-top, that we have a word for anything that can be put on top of a slice of bread. It literally translates to “add-ons”.

    These look delicious, though! I’ll have to make them sometime… On a weekend, of course ;)

    Dear Deseree, I feel the same way. Breakfast these days have been rushed and not given proper attention. Lately we opt for a quick bite in the morning, settling for a more formal meal at dinner. Your mini frittatas are just what our mornings need. These look wonderful dear. xo, Catherine
