Makes either 12 or 16 mini frittatas


    Easy-Peasy Zucchini and Tomato Frittata

    Eggs are such an easy and delicious way to ensure your child gets a healthy dose of protein. These gluten- and nut-free frittata cups can be made in a mini-muffin pan too, but you’ll need to reduce the baking time to 10 to 12 minutes. Whether mini frittatas or muffin size, they’re yummy and nourishing to the core. Plus, they’re just as delicious served cool out of a lunchbox as they are warm out of the oven.


    Tip: these can easily be made dairy free by omitting feta cheese or using a plant-based substitute that you can buy at your local health food store.
