Frittata Muffins - Are They Called Something Else Here?
Hi All, I'm looking for some good recipe ideas for frittata muffins because I want to be able to make a couple of batches and then freeze them and pull them out to bring into work for my lunches. I know there must be some tried-and-true recipes here for them but my search for "frittata muffins" didn't yield any results. Do they have another name? Does anyone have any good suggestions?
I was thinking of doing a sausage/broccoli/tomato one and maybe a ham/spinach/onion. I'm just not sure about proportions of egg, milk/cream, seasonings, etc. I would like to get some more veggies in there too since I know I don't ever get enough veggies in me.
Edit to add: I'm also assuming I can convert any frittata recipe into "muffins," but for how long and what temperature do I cook them?

I call them egg muffins. Frittatas are flatter, to me, so I wouldn't call them that. There are a few recipes in the Lowcarb Recipe Room forum in the egg category (I searched for "muffins"): Eggs and Breakfast - LowCarbFriends Recipes,
or if you do an advanced search for "egg muffin" in this forum:

since you already know how to make them, you don't really need recipes, just combination ideas, right? you could search for frittata recipes on regular recipe sites and adapt them for your muffins.

H's one from Kent Altena. I have lots of others. What flavors do you favor?
Denver Muffins Kent
½ medium onion
½ red pepper
½ green pepper
4 oz. Ham
½ tsp. salt
¼ tsp. black pepper
8 large eggs
½ cup cream
4 oz. cheddar cheese, shredded
1/3 cup almond flour (omit on Induction)
1 tsp. dried parsley
Preheat oven to 350F. In a large skillet, add butter, onion, green pepper, red pepper, salt, and black pepper. Cook until tender. Reduce heat once veggies are tender, and add ham. In a large bowl, add eggs. Beat lightly. Add cream, cheese, almond flour, and parsley. Beat the ingredients together. Spray a muffin tin well with cooking spray. Pour egg mixture into each hole, and then add ham / veggie mixture to each muffin hole. Push ham under the surface. Bake for 12-15 minutes until the eggs are set.
