Easter Eats

Can you believe Easter is a little less than 2 weeks away?!?!? I am SO behind this year. My house isn’t decorated, I haven’t done all of the Easter Bunny’s “shopping” for him, and we don’t even know what time we’re hosting our get-together or what we’re serving, OR who all is even coming. Pretty bad, huh?

Honestly I don’t even plan to decorate this year – I know, it’s so sad. What’s a holiday in our house without decorations? I don’t even know. But it just doesn’t make much sense since we’re in the process of “uncluttering” so we can snap pics and list our house on the market soon. I do have this little scene on our front porch though and I’m afraid these little guys are going to have to be enough for Easter 2017.

I also have a super easy recipe for you! Although our Easter menu hasn’t been decided upon yet, these mini frittatas just might make an appearance. I’ve made these time and time again and they have yet to disappoint. And did I mention they’re super easy?

MINI BREAKFAST FRITTATAS (makes 12)

114

 INGREDIENTS

  • 6 eggs
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/2 cups shredded or crumbled cheese*
  • 1 cup cooked spinach (I love using fresh spinach & sauteing in a bit of olive oil)
  • 1/4 cup sun-dried tomatoes, chopped**
  • 4 slices cooked turkey bacon, chopped***

 DIRECTIONS 

  • Preheat oven to 350 F
  • Spray or grease 12-cup muffin pan
  • In a large bowl, whisk eggs until smooth
  • Add milk, salt & cheese and stir together
  • Add cooked spinach, sun-dried tomatoes & cooked bacon and stir together (it’s super helpful to have a cute little assistant do all the mixing)
  • Spoon egg mixture equally into 12 greased muffin cups

*I have used several different kinds of cheese when making these. My favorite is probably classic cheddar, but a good crumbled goat cheese or feta never hurt anyone 🙂

**The sun-dried tomatoes are totally optional – in fact, so is the spinach and the bacon! You really can use any add-ins you want, which makes these so fun to make. You could even set up a frittata station at an event you’re hosting and let guests make their own! Other add-ins could include peppers, onions, mushrooms … you get the point 🙂

***I’m a fan of Applegate Farms turkey bacon and these slices are HUGE. If you’re using another brand of turkey bacon (or regular bacon for that matter), you may want to up the slices to 6 or so as these tend to be smaller.

These frittatas would make a great addition to your Easter brunch menu and I can ensure you they will be a hit. Enjoy and have a great week!
