ANNOUNCING: Change is part of life, and apparently, it's part of blogging, too. As of September 5, 2013, I'm merging The Virtual Goody Plate with Disco Mom Takes on the World and whatever else may henceforth spill from my fingertips (and kitchen), into one great new blog. I hope you'll join me there in exclaiming, "THIS IS AWESOMELAND."

Mini Frittatas

I understand these are borderline baking. They are actually gluten-and-other-baking-stuff-free, but they were made in muffin tins so I'm posting them.

Made these for a brunch recently and they were fabulous little single-servings of ham-and-eggs. Totally easy and so delicious. Although the original recipe did not call for any seasoning, not even salt and pepper, so I amended that. Mrs. Dash is my favorite seasoning on eggs, along with a bit of seasoned salt, but do whatever you like best. So cute and easy!

Mini Frittatas
6 slices deli ham
1 T vegetable oil
1 small potato, peeled and cut into 1/4-inch dice (that is pretty small)
1 small onion, finely chopped
1/2 red bell pepper, diced
Mrs. Dash and seasoned salt, to taste
8 large eggs
6 T milk

1. Preheat oven to 375. Mist a 12-cup muffin tin with nonstick cooking spray. Cut each slice of ham in half and press one piece into each cup.

2. Warm oil in large skillet over medium-high heat. Cook potato, stirring, until softened and golden, about 5 minutes. Add onion and bell pepper and cook, stirring, until softened, 3 to 5 minutes longer. Season with salt and Mrs. Dash, and divide among muffin cups.

3. In a large measuring cup, whisk together eggs, milk and a bit more seasoned salt and Mrs. Dash. Pour egg mixture into muffin cups so each one is about half full (I made mine a bit fuller; the mixture sinks in.) Bake until eggs are cooked through, about 15 minutes. Let stand on a wire cooking rack for 5 minutes. Remove frittatas from muffin tin and serve warm, or let cool completely and serve at room temperature.

We served them with fresh biscuits, cream-cheese-stuffed strawberries, fruit salad and virgin mimosas (OJ and ginger ale.)
