Fri-day thanks

Thanks for all the good wishes on yesterday’s post, guys!

Here’s a little gift for all of you:

Fri-titties (mini fritattas)


Meat or meat substitute




Heavy cream, half and half, or milk (optional)

Pre-heat oven to 400 degrees. Grease the cups of a standard size cupcake pan.

Chop an assortment of pre-cooked veggies, herb, spices, and meat (I used broccoli, carrot, cauliflower, onion powder, garlic powder, and Boca sausage) and loosely fill each cupcake cup.  Top with a sprinkle of grated cheese (I used reduced fat Mexican blend).  Beat the eggs with a splash of heavy cream or other milk product if desired.  Pour the beaten egg mixture over the veggie in each cup until the liquid almost reaches the top.

Bake for 15-25 minutes until puffed and golden brown on top.  Remove from the oven and allow to cool before removing from the pan.  They will deflate.  Once cool you can wrap them and refrigerate or freeze. These reheat beautifully.  I zap a pair of them for 45 seconds, covered.  You can use any combination of veggies, seasoning, meat and cheese that tickles your fancy. 

As for proportions, I made 6 standard size frititties with 4 eggs and less than ¼ cup of heavy cream.  Oh, yeah and these are S*uth B*each phase 1 friendly.  Enjoy!!
