Reviews for Mini Ham 'n' Cheese Frittatas
"I used 7 whole eggs and one egg white and omitted the salt (I NEVER add salt when ham is an ingredient), and baked it for 20 minutes. It made 12 mini-frittatas. 3 of us polished them off in less than 5 minutes."
"Followed the recipe to a "T", too salty and it's texture was akin to rubber...I'll keep searching."
"Excellent! Made these for brunch today. I omitted the salt and used Mrs. Dash's Garlic and Herb Seasoning instead. Recipe actually made 12 mini frittatas."
"Delicious! I used Canadian bacon instead of ham and egg substitute for the egg whites. My muffin tin must be smaller cuz I ended up with a full dozen muffins and ended up cooking them about 27 mins."
"These were really good, I had no problems with water from the ham and did not reduce the salt. I guess it depends what kind of ham you have."
"Really tasty. I did mine in ramekins so I can just pop them in the microwave each morning. One question...mine ended up with lots of water from the ham in the bottom. Did anybody else have this problem or an idea of how to prevent that in the future?"
"This was very good and a nice presentation when done in cute ramekins. However, I would caution about adding salt. The ham and cheese add plenty. Mine turned out too salty, but I will definitely make these again without the salt."
"This is a great recipe to make ahead and take to work the next morning for breakfast. I am a vegetarian, so I substituted the ham with veggie sausage. Thank you, Susan."
"My boyfriend rated this one because I didn't like it at all. I do not like my eggs that brown and the texture was way off for me. He didn't seem to mind, but wants me to add bacon if I make them again. (probably won't)"
"We all love these, so easy for on the go people!!"
"I made this recipe as instructed, but my muffin tins were too small to hold it in 8 tins so actually got 12 out of it. Husband and very picky 4 yr old loved it!"
"I used shredded Italian four cheese and a fluted muffin tin (6) and 6 eggs. Perfect!"
"Excellent. Would make a great on-the-go breakfast. I used almond milk and added a little green chile seasoning"
"Slightly modified this for 1 person. I used a ramekin and it turned out great. It was a great way to use leftover Easter ham. Easy and delicious!"
"I know this may like I can't read directions, but here goes....So, I do need 10 eggs, 6 to use whole, and four extra ones for the whites, discarding the extra yolks right?"
"This recipe was GREAT. I am on low carb way of eating and these are a great change for breakfast or lunch. They are very flavorful. Love the idea of making them in muffin pans......I can change the meat instead of having nothing but ham. Love this recipe!!"
"These were pretty easy."
"[quote user="Stevehet"]6 whole and 4 just egg whites?[/quote]The recipe calls for 6 eggs and 4 egg whites, that means you'll have 6 egg yolks and 10 egg whites."
"The directions aren't clear. Is it 6 eggs - 2 of them are just egg whites or 10 eggs - 6 whole and 4 just egg whites?"
"Very yummy! I used sausage instead of ham, and it worked great! Just make sure to grease muffin cups well."
"These were great! I cheated and bought the ham in my grocery store's salad bar (pre-cooked and cubed, and you can buy only what you need). A great dish for overnight guests!"
"My family enjoyed them. I loved them. I did leave out the chives mainly because my son is so picky. I used a full package of the diced cooked ham. I also had the equivalent of 1 dozen eggs. I made 24 muffin size Frittatas. Definitely a keeper in my book!"
"These were great! My husband and I loved them. After 22 minutes in my oven, they were cooked perfectly."
"Everyone LOVES this recipe! Very easy to make."
"Really, really, good, and easy!!! Made it with leftover Easter ham."
"These were very flavorful even after substituting with a pint of egg substitute, finely chopped canadian bacon and swiss cheese, skipping the milk. They are easy to store in fridge to eat throughout the work-week and by simply popping a couple of them in the microwave for 1 minute. Yum!"
"To lower the cholestrol amt. in this recipe, I would use egg whites and a few drops of yellow food coloring. My dh eats his eggs like this all the time and it cheaper than buying eggbeaters."
"how much ham is 1/4lb in cups? I have left over from baked ham but don't have a scales? thanks"
"When making this recipe can you safely freeze the excess as there is only 2 of us but I would like to try this and have extra for other mornings."
"Very good! Super fast to get ready."
"as a weight watcher this is 2 points veeeeeerrry gooood"
