How Do You Make Egg Frittata In Muffin Tins?
Egg frittata is so yummy.
Basically egg frittata is whisked egg cooked in a skillet and layered with cut up veggies or meat for a delicious filling.
Then frittatas are transferred into the oven to finish off the cooking.
To adapt frittatas to a muffin tin frittata is basically an egg muffin recipe.
Instead of doing cooking on the stove and then just finishing it off in the oven as you would with a traditional frittata, after whisking the egg it cooks completely in the oven in a muffin tin.
For egg frittatas or egg muffins you can cook toppings like veggies or meat in a skillet first and then put it in the muffin tin or you can just let the oven do all the cooking, assuming meat is precooked. Otherwise cooking methods may vary.
For this ham and cheddar cheese breakfast egg muffin recipe, you don’t need to cook anything in the skillet ahead of time.
