Breakfast Muffin Frittatas

Breakfast Muffin Frittatas

If you are not a breakfast person first thing in the morning and need to be out the door early, than you will love my portable Breakfast Muffin Frittatas. I started making them for my hubby who doesn’t eat breakfast first thing but lives on coffee till mid morning. It’s fine on a relaxing weekend when you can have a tasty breakfast even in the middle of the day if you wish but during the week it does get complicated! These delicious eggy muffins are perfect for him when he finally feels hungry at around 10 o’clock. I do earn brownie points for supply of those, that’s for sure.  πŸ™‚

These super easy and quick to make Breakfast Muffin Frittatas are perfect when you are busy during the week as they can be prepared in advanced and packed as a convenient and healthy brekkie on the go. No more cheeky pastries! πŸ˜‰

I tend to make them on Sunday evening as I’m clearing up after dinner as they are so quick to put together. The combination of ingredients I’m suggesting here is only a start and you can use whatever veg you’ve got in the fridge that needs using up or that you fancy. Swap ham or bacon for smoked salmon or flaked smoked mackerel perhaps. Add grated courgette or little broccoli florets instead of peppers or tomatoes. Spinach or kale wouldn’t go amiss either. You can really play around with what you’ve got and make these your own.

Breakfast Muffin Frittatas

There is one thing to bare in mind when making these. Don’t be tempted to use regular paper muffin cases as your frittatas will stick to them and you will end up with most of your eggy muffin on the case as opposed to in your belly. What a waste would that be! Make sure you spray the muffin tin cups with some oil/olive oil which you then gently distribute all over the cup with your fingers. As long as you do that, you will not have any problems with getting your frittatas out of the tin (make sure you let them cool down slightly first though).

This recipe yields 6 mini frittatas but you can of course easily make a double batch. I would say that two of these make a nice portion. I usually jazz things up a bit for my fussy hubster and alternate his frittatas with couple of slices of my Wholesome Banana Bread or Nutty Pumpkin Banana Bread with Chocolate Chips as his brekkies on the go.

Mini Breakfast Frittatas

Yield: 6 mini muffin frittatas


  • 4 large eggs
  • 50ml milk
  • 6 slices of ham/smoked bacon
  • half a red pepper or whole romano pepper or 1 tomato (deseeded and roughly chopped)
  • 50g strong cheddar (grated)
  • chives
  • salt and pepper
  • oil/olive oil
    Non-stick muffin tin to bake frittatas in.


  1. Spray muffin tin with a little oil/olive oil and make sure all the muffin cups are well greased by distributing oil evenly all around with your fingers.
  2. Line each muffin cup with slice of ham or bacon.
  3. Deseed and roughly chop your pepper or tomato.
  4. Distribute chopped pepper/tomato evenly between muffin cups and follow by grated cheddar and finely chopped chives.
  5. Whisk the eggs together with milk and season well with salt and pepper.
  6. Pour the egg mixture little by little into muffin tin cups, distributing it evenly until it's all gone.
  7. Bake in 180Β°C for approx. 25 minutes until browned and slightly puffed up (they will collapse as they cool).
  8. Let them cool in the muffin tin before taking them out as they are then easier to remove. Prise gently with a knife if required.
  9. Enjoy them warm or cold!

If you are after some more breakfast ideas, why not try my delicious Strawberry Fields Overnight Oats or perhaps if you are a home baker you might want to give these Easy Yoghurt Bread Rolls a go. They are perfect freshly baked for brekkie with jam, honey, lemon curd or perhaps a side of scrambled eggs. Yum!

These Cheesy Carrot and Courgette Muffins would be another option you might like (more as a snack or lunch perhaps).

      Thank Mandy! They are proper tasty and versatile and also hide veggies well. My 7 year old usually runs away at the sight of peppers yet devours these muffins without blinking an eye.

      Thanks Cat! πŸ™‚ You can adapt them so easily to what you like and what you have in the fridge which is great. Hubby can’t get enough of these for his breakfast.

      It’s great to have a versatile little dish like this, isn’t it! I tend to change ingredients in my frittatas and every batch is slightly different. It’s a great fridge clear out breakfast! πŸ™‚

    This is a nice breakfast idea, I actually prefer savoury muffins to sweet ones for breakfast! Thank you for sharing with #CookBlogShare:)

    These look great. We’re not great at breakfast in our house because mornings are such a rush. These would be a great (and healthy) alternative and I love that they can be made in advance. #recipeoftheweek

      Thanks Louise! πŸ™‚ I know what you mean, mornings can be crazy during the week. Our kids absolutely love their breakfast the moment they are out of bed. Myself and hubby usually don’t feel like eating until well into mid morning and these are life savers if you are on the go!

    Oh these look great! I would be very happy to have them for my breakfast (though definitely a long time before 10am – I have to have breakfast first thing in the morning or I start to feel faint!) Eb x

      Thanks Eb! I come from the family of late breakfast eaters (providing it’s genetic lol) and so does the hubby. At the moment our boys are the only ones having brekkie first thing and they are having it for all four of us it seems lol. Growing lads πŸ˜‰ x

    Ooh these look delicious Jo! I’d love these and they sound very easy to make for the week ahead. With a couple of small switches too they would be perfect for Weight Watchers since eggs and chicken are now zero points, so they would be brilliant for easy healthy breakfasts or lunches for me! Trying soon!!
