Super-Easy Frittata Muffins (aka, the "Frittuffin")

How do you like to keep cozy in winter?

Sit by the fireplace?
Wear a fuzzy bathrobe?
Wrap yourself in one of those snuggly body wraps?
Stuff yourself with comfort food?

My personal preference is to stuff myself silly with comfort food, 
while wearing a fuzzy bathrobe, and sitting in front of a fireplace 
(preferably one that's lit, of course).
I do draw the line with the body wrap thing, however.
It kind of reminds me of a straight jacket, and my fear is that once I put it on,
I won't be able to get it off.  
Plus, that would make it one step easier for my family to commit me.
They already think I'm nuts...
I don't need to enable them, do I?

All of my willpower seems to go out the window when the thermometer plummets,
and it takes a lot more to satisfy me, especially for breakfast.
In the summer, I'm content with a smoothie  and a bagel,
but in winter, I crave something warm, like a bowl of oatmeal, 
or a stack of pancakes, or a cheesy omelette.

I was looking for something different to make for breakfast, 
and I came across some recipes for mini frittatas. 
Spinach and Cheese Egg Muffins from Simply Stacie 
fit the bill for what I had in mind.
 Influenced by the popularity of Cronuts...and Brookies and Crookies and Cruffins, (oh my!)...
I am calling my version the Frittuffin, LOL...
a mini frittata in a muffin tin. 

I filled my Frittuffin (catchy, isn't it?) with spinach, mushrooms, 
turkey bacon and cheddar cheese.
I did leave the veggies out of a few of them,
 hoping they would appeal to Junior Goo Shoes (they did!).

 What's nice is that you can pretty much use whatever you have on hand...
any kind of veggie, or cheese, bacon or sausage...
The key is to chop everything extra-small, since each frittata is the size of a muffin.
You wouldn't want to find a whole mushroom or half a sausage in one little muffin, would you?

The best part is, they can be assembled in advance, and cooked just before serving.
Leftovers can be popped into the microwave and re-heated.

What would you fill your "Frittuffins" with?

  2. They would have to be filled with LOTS of sausage or other meat for my boys to eat them. Or I'd be accused of trying to make them eat quiche!! Pinned!

  3. Yum! Perfect, I need easy recipes as I'm very late in my school work - too much time in front of the TV with a numb mind last week - and I have no time for complicated recipes. Thanks!

  4. I have that same problem! I have no willpower in the Winter. Comfort foods are best, sitting next to a fire. Your family must love you for all the great foods you make. Those muffins look yummy! I wish I had some right now for breakfast.

  9. They look delicious so I've pinned it, thinking I can make them up one day to refrigerate for an early easy breakfast for my husband, and late breakfast for me.

    I cooked breakfast for 40 years and now think it's time for him to cook for the next 40!

    You manage to make me chuckle before each recipe!

  15. These sound great. Just the sort of thing for a big, fussy family - you know, where one likes cheese and bacon, and one likes veggies and cheese and another likes onions and mushrooms - you get the picture. It would be easy to individualize. This looks like a keeper!
