It's time for the March Secret Recipe Club reveal...
What's the Secret Recipe Club? It's a group started by Amanda of Amanda's Cookin'. Each month, every participant is assigned to someone else's blog from which they pick a recipe - or two - to make and post, but it's all a secret until the big day. Today's the day. I always love a kitchen challenge and some culinary adventure.
This month I was assigned Eat Little Eat Big by Susie whose blog celebrates good, healthy everyday food. I was inspired by her mini-quiche recipe and fully embraced her invitation to "adapt to whatever you have on hand." Done.
Frittata (an Italian crustless quiche) is on my usual breakfast and brunch rotation, but I have never thought to put them in individual muffin liners to avoid buttering the baking dish.
In this case I spooned eggs, beaten with a splash of milk, into the paper liners. Then I dropped roughly a tablespoon's worth of ham, a teaspoon's worth of low-fat shredded mozzarella, and a teaspoon's worth of shredded parmesan cheese into each well. I sprinkled the tops with a dash of sweet paprika and some freshly ground smoked sea salt. I baked in a 375 degree oven for 30 minutes till the egg was set. Delicious and hassle-free breakfast! Thanks for the inspiration, Susie.
Take 2: I liked this so much, I made them as a portable breakfast for my husband and his friend on a 36-hour road trip. This time I used a dry Spanish chorizo and shredded mozzarella. Fabulous and fast.
