I've been doing the South Beach thing for a couple months now and have lost about 30 lbs. Great. But now my boyfriend has gotten cast in a new role at work that is extremely physically demanding and has been dropping pounds at an alarming rate. In an effort to meet both of our dietary needs without busting our budget I have been doing a lot of brainstorming. One thing that we both need in the morning is protein. I had an easy frittata recipe hanging around that had been popular with both of us; but it was a bit of a challenge to eat on the go. I also had these muffin pans...

And thus the Frittata Muffin was born!

You can use pretty much any frittata recipe; but here is this particular one:

INGREDIENTS:
8 eggs
2 pkgs frozen chopped spinach, thawed
1/4 cup fresh grated parmesean or asiago cheese
1 clove chopped garlic
salt and pepper to taste

Preheat oven to 450. Combine ingredients in large bowl and pour into large muffin pan (the kind of pan that gets 6 jumbo muffins instead of 12 small) filling cups all the way to the top. Bake for 15 minutes. Enjoy.

See? EASY!

Mmmm, those look tasty!  Gotta go check if I've got spinach . . . nope, but it's on my list now.  Thanks for sharing these.  I can't wait to try them!

I am trying these just as soon as I can get to the supermarket to get the ingredients.  I am an absolute spinach freak and I just about drooled when I saw these.

GENIUS.

Must buy frittata ingredients at the store tomorrow...

EDIT: Do you think it would work in a normal-sized muffin tin, or does it need to be the large ones?

You so completely ROCK!!

Having portein in the morning is vital for me, but I'm also an eat-on-the-go-one-handed person; I NEVER would have thought of muffin cups for eggs! And I am getting very tired of raw almonds every weekday morning...

Do you do anything special to (1)make them hold together?  (2)come out of the tin?

Thanks again!

The only thing I did was spray the pan with Pam ahead of time and remove the fritata from the tin immediatley after baking. If you let it cool in the tin it will stick.

I haven't tried it with anything else yet, but I would imagine any simple fritata recipe would do.

That looks yummy! Could you tell me what size your packets of spinach are as I'm in Australia and I'm thinking we may have different packets.  Tia!
