EGG BITES: little oven baked frittatas that will fill you up and keep you energized!
Ohhhhh man. This is a favorite recipe for sure.
Can you guess why? SIMPLE, QUICK, and DELICIOUS!
Plus you can make so many combos and variations of it as well(add mushrooms, spinach, peppers, onions, ham, different cheeses… Basically anything you would want in your omelette!).
They come out like little soufflés and are really pretty!
Serve them hot right away or store them for reheating in the oven or microwave later/tomorrow morning – they stay good in the fridge for a few days. 😊
This took about 20 mins in total, prep time and cook time together.
I followed Giada’s recipe as a guide for these but as per usual, I ventured off and did my own tweaks.
Ingredients: Serves 2-3 ; yields 12 mini egg bites
– 4 large eggs
– 1/2 bell pepper, finely sliced and diced any color you like!
– 1/2 a shallot, finely sliced and diced
– 2 sprigs of green onion, chopped
– parmesan cheese to taste
– salt/pepper/garlic powder to taste
Get all of your items that you need out first! Makes life way easier and well, you kind of can’t do anything ‘quickly’ if you don’t do this first.
You’ll need 2 cups measuring cup, a cutting board, a mini muffin pan, a knife and some non-stick cooking spray. Lastly, a rubber spatula or something to scoop the egg bites out of the tin when they’re done.
1) Heat oven to 375 degrees
2) Finely dice your veggies that you’re going to put in your egg bites
3) Crack your eggs into the measuring cup
4) Generously spray the mini muffin pans with non-stick cooking spray (the eggs will do more sticking to tin pans so if you’ve got silicon ones I don’t think you need to worry about generous spraying)
5) Mix the veggies into the measuring cup with the eggs by simply throwing them on in there! Then do a little stirring
6) Pour the egg/veggie mixture into the muffin pans and top with some extra cheese
7) Oven time! 8-10 minutes for the mini’s
8) Take out of the oven, loosen and scoop ’em up with the rubber spatula onto a plate and enjoy!
