Mini Italian fritattas

Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 25 minutes
Total Time: 35 minutes
Servings: 12

Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons olives oil
  • 1 onion, finely minced
  • 1 cup baby spinach leaves, finely chopped
  • 8 large eggs
  • 1/2 cup half and half
  • 3/4 cup grated swiss cheese or Gruyere
  • 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1/2 teaspoon fine sea salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 375 F. Brush a 12 cup muffin tin with olive oil.
  2. In a saute pan, heat the olive oil to medium heat. Add the onions and cook until translucent, about 4-5 minutes. Add the spinach and cook until wilted and all of the released liquid has evaporated, another 4-5 minutes.
  3. Remove from heat and allow to cool for a few minutes.
  4. In a large bowl, beat the eggs, and mix in the half and half, salt and pepper, Swiss cheese, and spinach mixture. Divide the mixture evenly into the muffin tin. Sprinkle the Parmesan cheese evenly on top and bake for 12-15 minutes, or until the tops of the frittatas have browned and puffed.
  5. Let cool for a few minutes and remove from the muffin tin by releasing each with a small knife.
