Last night, the Bunko Babes had our monthly game. This month, our host chose “minis” as the theme. We could bring anything that could be eaten in 1-2 bites. I figured there are so many mini desserts that I’d rather bring something savory. So, I went searching for a mini frittata recipe. I did find one with potatoes and ham in it from Cooking Light, but I wanted to use some ingredients on hand so I adapted it.
I came up with Mini Sausage and Cheese Frittatas. While they were really tasty and actually quite adorable, I would definitely recommend serving them warm rather than at room temperature. Using my latest new mini muffin pan that makes 24 muffins, I set to work.
I started out by finely chopping about ¼ cup of onion and then sautéing it lightly in a small non-stick pan sprayed with PAM. Then, I broke up one sweet Italian turkey sausage link and cooked it along with the onion. The original recipe called for 4 egg whites, and I really hate to waste egg yolks so I decided to use some egg substitute in place of the egg whites. I still used to full regular eggs as per the original recipe. I also had some scallions hanging around, so I chopped up about 2 of those. I whisked everything together and then poured into the mini muffin pan. They cooked very quickly in about 10 minutes or so.
My Oldest gave a huge thumbs up to them right out of the oven. I thought they were good, but I think I would go ahead and use all eggs next time and add a splash of milk. I'd also like to try combining chopped pancetta and fontina or even gorgonzola cheese in them. There's more tinkering to be done, but I have posted the recipe for Mini Frittatas in case anyone is interested in giving them a try.
