Reviews for Italian Mini Frittatas
"These were well-received at my house. Even the kids ate them pretty nicely. I did use full-fat mozzarella and 2% milk and turkey bacon. Getting them cleanly out of the muffin tins is no joke."
"This sounds wonderful and I would like to make it for a brunch I am having in Sept. Would this recipe work if I made it as "one" fritta? Baking it in a glass baking dish? I want to double the recipe. Thanks for any ideas."
"I recently made this recipe for my son's 5th grade class, as part of teachers' request for protein snacks to be sent during spring testing. One of his classmates wrote me a thank-you note saying, "I loved the frittatas. During TCAP, I had something to look forward to. Your frittatas were my favorite snack. I really liked how it had flavor and it was healthy." Also, this recipe was simple enough that my 11-year-old could help put it all together. Highly recommended!"
"Great recipe and tastes even better the second day. I have changed meats to ham or chopped turkey bacon an added spinach sometimes and always a favorite."
"Really good. I substituted canadian bacan for the proscuitto because that's all i had on hand. Made ahead for weekday breakfasts intending to reheat 2 each morning for breakfast, they were all gone in three days after my husband decided to try my "health food.""
