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."
