Portable Breakfast Frittata

04 Feb

Before I forget, I wanted yall to notice the recipe index tab above.  I’m adding links to all the recipes I post under this section to make it easy to find them over time.  I have nothing but plans to grow this blog over time, and one day the organization will help everyone find what they need much faster!  On to the food..

If you are all like me, it’s hard some days to find time to eat a complete breakfast when you are on the go. I love a good frittata, but often gotta get the kiddos to school before I could ever finish one! Enter the muffin frittata (Nom Nom Paleo is apparently obsessed with them). This morning it’s just me and the kids, so I decided to take my first crack at baking me up some individual frittata’s with the hope of eating a few in the mornings this week for breakfast when I’m running short on time.

Pre-Heat the oven to 375 F. Here is what I assembled for the job. Half a pound of ground turkey, two shallots, a yellow pepper, a can of red pimentos, Madras Curry Powder, 1/4 cup of coconut milk, coconut flour, and 6 eggs.

Next I heated up a little olive oil and cooked up the peppers and shallots until just tender. I added the turkey and seasoned liberally with salt and the curry powder. Saute until just a bit crispy on the edges.

In the mean time I sprayed a non-stick muffin tray with coconut oil spray and whipped up the egg mixture. Just whip the eggs with the coconut milk and a bit of coconut flour. Fill each muffin cup with the meat mixture, then top off with egg mixture to reach almost the top.

Pop these in the oven for 12 minutes, then rotate the tray 180 degrees and bake an additional 5-6 minutes. Immediately after taking them out of the oven I ran a sharp knife around the edge of each muffin to make sure it did not stick…then I crossed my fingers.

After around 10 minutes I GENTLY removed each frittata to a cooling tray. To my great surprise, I did not have to be that gentle after all as they held together very well and did not stick at all! The possibilities are endless here on good flavor combinations…I will certainly be experimenting more with these and think they’ll be a big hit on busy mornings!

Oh, and I had some left over meat mixture, so while these baked, and I was hungry, I made some quick scrambled eggs and chowed them down before the frittatas were even done 🙂

That’s excellent you stopped drinking Pop…we have to buy it for parties so the teens won’t freak out and think we’re really weird!
