MINI FRITTATAS

Last week Baby W was blessed in our church congregation.  Afterward we held a brunch for family and some friends.  I was a little worried about what foods to serve.  What brunch foods can feed 25 people?  The food would need to be kept warm while we were at church or be something we could easily heat up. I decided to try these mini frittatas. I kept referring to them as quiches but since there is no crust (a crust-less quiche) I guess they are called frittatas. You bake them in muffin tins so they are perfectly portioned to go with your other brunch delights.  The nice thing was I made them a day ahead and froze them and then just placed them on a cookie sheet and warmed them up in the oven.  This was perfect and worked so well to feed everyone. I saw people loading up on 2-3 of them they were that well liked. So whether you are hosting a brunch or want an easy make-ahead-and-freeze breakfast food to pop in the microwave on a busy morning, these mini frittatas are for you!

Here’s a little about me: I usually don’t buy things that I could make. I like to read and learn. I have dreams of being a mom, living in foreign countries, and trying new things. I take a ton of pictures. I collect rocks from the places I’ve been. I’m trying to learn French. I like to eat. I’m a Mormon.
