Mini Vegetable and Bacon Frittatas
Mini Vegetable and Bacon Fritatas is something we have for breakfast every other weekend. They are so easy and versatile and my kids think the shape is fun.
I just finished making these Mini Vegetable and Bacon Fritatas for lunch. They were superb. I pair them up with some corn bread, which I have never made before. I will post the corn bread recipe sometime this week!
These Mini Vegetable and Bacon Fritatas is a versatile recipe, as you can add any veggies you may prefer, add or replace other ingredients to satisfy your own individual flavor. You can also make a big fritata rather than small ones, much faster, which I did a while back. Here is the link for the other Vegetable Fritatta
These Mini Vegetable and Bacon Fritatas are perfect as an appetizer for any party you may think of having in the future, as a quick lunch fix or whatever you may want! You can keep them vegetarian by skipping the bacon. You can add any other veggies of your choice. The sky is the limit so I hope you get creative with them.

Mini Vegetable and Bacon Fritatas
Miryam's original recipe
Yield: 16-18 fritatas
6 eggs, beaten, I always use organic eggs
1 cup egg whites, I buy them in a container
2 red peppers, chopped
1 green pepper, chopped
1 onion, chopped
1 teaspoon salt
4 tablespoons olive oil
3 garlic cloves, chopped
3-4 green onions, chopped
6 slices Canadian bacon, chopped. I get Canadian bacon which is the only one I can find without sodium nitrate, a potent carcinogenic
Spray muffin tin with cooking spray and set aside.
On a sauce pan over medium heat heat the oil and add the veggies except the garlic. Cook for 3-5 minutes. Add garlic and bacon and cook for a further 2-3 minutes.
In a bowl mix regular eggs and egg whites. Preheat oven to 350F.
Divide veggie mixture between the muffin tins. Top veggies with 3-4 tablespoons of the egg mixture. Sprinkle each fritata with the green onions like in the picture.
Bake for 20-25 minutes.
Let the fritatas cool in the pan for about 5 minutes. Run a small knife alongside each fritatta to release it from the pan. Serve warm.
Each serving equals to two fritatas
