These are great. I made them in muffin tins so they were convenient while traveling. I used about 1/3 c per muffin and baked them for about 28 minutes. Next time I'll spray the paper liners as they tended to stick.
Great recipe. Loved it. Made the mistake of using a cup 2% milk without thickening it and there was some moisture left after cooking it for 15 min longer. Hubby still loved it, even suggested making it in muffin cups for breakfast on the run thru the week. Will do this tomorrow per recipe.
I like this recipe better than frittatas, as the process of putting the frittata under the broiler changes the flavor of the dish. Add a little nutmeg to this recipe and it is as good as any quiche recipe with crust and cream. Mine: asparagus, Buche de Chevre, & Nicoise olives - Yum!
Very easy, and very delicious! I didn't have cottage cheese on hand, so I used skim milk with a little flour as a thickener. Next time I'll use the cottage cheese, but it came out GREAT even without it!!! Yum!!!
I made this using egg whites + 3 whole eggs( I was afraid I was going to run out of egg whites, plus I have a thing about the color,don't ask also used turkey ham. It was delicious. My hubby loved it
