Mini Ham ‘n’ Cheese Frittatas

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

    I made these with leftover ham and they were delicious. I had everything on hand but chives so I substituted onions. They were a hit with the family and I will definitely be making them again.Volunteer Field Editor

    These were simple to make and very good! Mine also made 10 portions instead of 8 which is great! My daughter is excited as they are perfect for her grab-and-go mornings! Will definintely make again!

    I made this recipe this morning and give it 5 stars. We loved it. I used low fat rather than fat free products and used green onion instead of chives. It made 10 portions instead of 8. Hubby and I both loved it and had very few left over. They are addictive. We will definitely have this again. I highly recommend this recipe.Volunteer Field Editor

    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.
