Culinary Pursuits: Spicy Vegetable Frittata Muffins

Happy Mother's Day to all of the amazing mothers out there including mine! I've wanted to try making these frittata muffins for the longest time and today I finally did. They were amazing and so easy to make that I thought I'd share them with you...virtually that is:) This was a bit of a spontaneous recipe post. Usually when I post recipes here, I make the food knowing ahead of time that I'll be posting. This was more along the lines of "Let me throw together what I have in the fridge," so bare with me if the details aren't all that detailed. Anyway, check out the recipe below!

Ingredients:

6 large eggs
1 cup of egg whites
curry powder
fiery 5 red pepper
Rosemary garlic seasoning
1 spinach & feta chicken sausage link, sliced into 12 pieces
Vegetables of your choice (Use whatever you have on hand or whatever your favorites are. I made a vegetable medley of chickpeas, carrots, green beans, squash, and zucchini that was sitting in my fridge so that's what I used)
1/3 cup of goat cheese
This should make exactly 12 muffins!




Directions:

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
Coat a 12-cupcake pan with cooking spray.
Add vegetables, then one slice of the spinach & sausage link, and a few sprinkles of goat cheese.

Pour ~1/2 cup of egg/egg white mix to each cupcake
Bake for 25-30 minutes
Enjoy!



These are packed with protein and would be great as a midday or post-workout snack, or they can even be a part of a meal.

Have you made frittata muffins before? If so, what are your favorite things to add to them? Tell me in the comments!
