"Although I cannot lay an egg, I am a very good judge of omelettes." -George Bernard Shaw, Playwright
A frittata is traditionally made in a skillet, but baking them in muffin tins are great because they are perfect for leftovers. They keep well in the fridge and freeze well, too.
Frittatas are a great way to start your day off right with a serving of vegetables. The onions and peppers in this recipe are only a suggestion. You can use other variations on the onion, like shallots, leeks, or green onions. Any color bell pepper will do just as well and almost any leafy green vegetable will be a great substitute for the spinach. In short, you can utilize any vegetable you have on hand, including leftovers.
Servings: 6 | Serving size: 2 mini-frittatas

This recipe can easily be multiplied and makes good leftovers, especially as a sandwich.
Preheat oven to 350°F.
Line a muffin tin with 12 muffin liners or spray with oil.
Place a skillet over medium heat and add the butter and oil.
When hot, add the onions and sauté for about 5 minutes, stirring frequently, until onions are lightly browned.
Add the red peppers and sauté for 1 to 2 minutes or until soft.
Allow the mixture to cool slightly.
While the vegetables are cooking, crack the eggs into a medium mixing bowl and add the water.
Whisk until well combined.
Mix in the parmesan cheese, oregano and spinach.
Divide pepper and onion mixture between the muffin tins.
Using a ladle, pour the egg mixture into the muffin tins to 3⁄4 of the way.
Sprinkle the top of egg mixture with feta cheese.
Place the muffin tins into the oven and cook for about 20-25 minutes, until egg is firm.
Allow frittata to rest for 5 minutes, and then scoop the individual muffins out onto a platter.
Serve warm or cold and enjoy!
