Potato Chip Frittata Muffins

Waking up 'late' on a Sunday morning is one of the best moments which I always look forward for as it is then I feel relaxed, tension-free & all geared up for the upcoming week. Hey I am true Libran, you can expect me to be a bit lazy. :).
As I was skimming through my bookmarks this morning, I came across this Frittata muffin recipe. I was not sure how adding potato chips would make any difference to our usual frittata and oh boy! trust me it does. I used some salt & vinegar chips which I got last night and they tasted delicious.
One can use any flavor of potato chips and I am sure they would taste equally yummy!!.

Potato-Chip Frittata Muffins (Adapted from epicurious)


6 eggs
2 tbsp milk
salt & pepper
1/2 cup spinach
1 onion, finely chopped
1 tomato, finely chopped
1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese
a handful of potato chips, crushed
1 tsp extra virgin oil


1. Preheat oven to 325 F. Whisk in a bowl- eggs, milk with salt & pepper.

2. Heat oil in a pan, saute onion, tomatoes and spinach for 2-3 mins. Add this to the egg mixture.

3. Grease the muffin pan with oil and fill it some cheese and egg mixture - until three-quarters full. (Tip: If you have any empty cups left, fill them with some water to bake all the muffins evenly.)

4. Bake for 8 minutes and then sprinkle crushed potato chips over each of them. Bake for 5-6 more mins. Let them sit for a minute or so. Run a knife around the edges to loosen. Serve!!

As this is one of those breakfasts I truly enjoyed, I am sending this to Divya's 'Show me your breakfast' event :)

Coming up next is AWED: Srilanka roundup and I truly apologize for the delay. I was caught with an urgent deadline at work and blogging had to take a back-step for a while.

Hope you have a great week ahead.

  16. these look really good..plus they are savory!im kinds bored of sweet muffins..i look at them essentially as cakes made in very tiny portions!

    im just wondering if u used papercups in ur muffin tray...wont the cheese and egg mixture get stuck to the tray (and turn into one royal mess at the time of removing the muffins)if we skip the papercups?
