Easy Mini Fritata


The name does sound fancy but it is nothing more than a baked thick omelette, or, as Jamie Oliver aptly put it, an omelette cake. Making a fritata is very simple as it is like how you would cook an omelette with your choiced vegetables, some herbs and cheese. My not-too-authentic version is a much simpler version as I made it into smaller pieces, eliminating the whole process of having to cook the vegetables, and at the same time shortening the cooking time. Yes, I cooked it in mini muffins tin (well, more to a tart tin for mine). The result is a quick 5 minutes prep and 15 minutes of baking time that totally frees you to attend to other chores while cooking a fun and nutritious dish. I love the freedom in cooking this dish and I believe you do too!

This is a simple recipe that I did for this morning's breakfast. No-fuss, healthy fritata. You can actually change the vegetables to your liking. These fritata can also be frozen to be taken as a quick meal when you are in a hurry. Oh, it is also a keto- friendly recipe. Yay! Can't believe I just blogged my first keto-friendly recipe!

Parmesan cheese to be sprinkled on top
3 large eggs, beaten
1/2 tsp salt

(Note: If you don't like pepper or any of the vegetables, just replace with your choice. Some suggestions would be baby spinach, potatoes and kale. Please make sure vegetables are cut small so that it can be cooked in the short time that you are baking)
