Because my kids all leave for school at different times, breakfast is pretty hit or miss around here. We do a lot of cold cereal and milk, instant oatmeal, and yogurt with granola.
But when I'm on top of my game, I love to make some grab and go options that can be warmed up or eaten cold for a change of pace. These amazing little muffin tin frittatas are one of our faves, especially since I can pack them full of extra veggies to increase the nutrition. They're perfect for busy weeks and when you know your little ones need an extra boost of lean protein, like on those grueling testing days!
Plus these muffin tin frittatas are super simple to prepare, especially when you use AllWhites Egg Whites. AllWhites 100% liquid egg whites is a convenient, fat-free, cholesterol-free and low-calorie alternative to regular eggs. There's no messy egg cracking and separating -- you just pour the AllWhites egg whites straight from the little carton over your prepared veggies and bake.
By the way, if you're watching your weight, AllWhites clock in at a 0 PointsPlus value per serving on the Weight Watchers program, and these muffin tin frittatas have only 40 calories per serving! Find it in the refrigerated dairy section of your local grocery stores.
For these muffin tin frittatas, I started with the Broccoli & Sun-Dried Tomato Egg Cups recipe on the AllWhites website, but in typical fashion, I changed things up a bit -- mainly because a) we don't have a microwave and b) I wasn't able to find dry pack sun-dried tomatoes are my grocery store.
No problem, I just quickly steamed the veggies on the stovetop and I substituted sun-dried tomatoes packed in oil. I'm sure this increases the calorie count a bit, but I'm okay with that. I also opted to sprinkle the Parmesan cheese on top of the veggies after portioning them out into the muffin cups instead of mixing it into the veggies ahead of time.
I stuck with the broccoli/sun-dried tomatoes/green onions combination for this batch, but these muffin tin frittatas are completely customizable. Just substitute 3 cups of your favorite veggies, add in a small amount of low fat cheese, and continue on with the recipe below. I think spinach, sun-dried tomatoes and shallots with a bit of Romano cheese would be a delicious alternative!
