Mini Ham 'n' Cheese Frittatas Recipe

Mini Ham 'n' Cheese Frittatas Recipe

I found this recipe a few years ago and tried to make it with it with a few changes. I'm diabetic, and this fits into my low-carb and low-fat diet. Every time I serve a brunch, the frittatas are the first thing to disappear, and nobody knows they are low fat! —Susan Watt, Basking Ridge, New Jersey
