Vegetable Frittata Muffins

When DK told me about the new (optional) twist for Recipe Marathon 2, of posting recipes based on a theme , I was so apprehensive to stick to one, owing to my tendency of easily getting bored of the stuff I make. But, at the very last minute, I have decided to have two weeks of November theme-based.

"Rather go to bed supper less, than run in debt for a Breakfast ".

~ Benjamin Franklin

This week I will be posting all recipes for 'Breakfast & Brunch' category. These are those unique ones, which I have always envisioned to make someday and the best part - they are healthy and easy-breezy recipes.

....Its a known fact that I am an ardent lover of eggs, for their rich protein content and unique taste. The inspiration of my first recipe is Anu's post, which she made from Stephanie's blog.
I have added a serving of veggies to these muffins and they make truly an amazing and healthy breakfast!




Vegetable Frittata Muffins (Adapted from here)

Makes 10 mini frittata muffins

Ingredients:

5 large Eggs
1/4 cup Milk
1/2 medium Onion, finely chopped
2-3 pieces of finely chopped store-bought fire-roasted Bell Peppers (or) one can easily substitute with normal ones.
1 Tomato, finely chopped
1 small Garlic pod, finely minced
1/2 medium Zucchini, grated
1 tsp Olive oil
Salt & Pepper
1/2 cup Cheddar Cheese

Preparation:

Step 1: In a large mixing bowl, whisk eggs and milk together. Set aside.

Step 2: Heat olive oil in a wok, saute first onions until golden brown, then add in peppers, tomato and zucchini. Cook for couple of minutes.

Step 3: Add the sauteed vegetables to egg mixture and mix in salt, pepper and grated cheese.

Step 4: Preheat oven for 350 deg and grease the muffin pan with some olive oil. Fill three-fourths with egg mixture and bake for 20-25 minutes. Serve hot.
