Brunch Food: Bacon and Potato Egg Frittatas

I used to make these mini egg bites ALL THE TIME. Then I took a long break. This was the first time in almost a year I decided to make them again and went with the bigger muffin size instead of the minis. I also changed up the filling. Usually when I make them to snack on in the week, I stick to something easy like canadian bacon and swiss cheese, however this time I was hosting a brunch and wanted them to be extra yummy. I made them with onion, bell pepper, bacon and potato.

A friend requested the recipe and that always encourages me to share the recipe on the blog. Plus I like them a lot. I figure you guys would too!

These are so easy to make- this version is a bit more time consuming, but totally worth it. I think they are the perfect addition to a brunch menu, plus they are a good way to get some veggies in with your egg. You get less than half slice of bacon and less than one egg per frittata which is totally reasonable. Two per guest makes a nice serving unless you are planning on a light brunch or have several other items.

The great thing about this recipe is you can pretty much adjust all the ingredients- if you want more veggies in there, add more. More bacon? Ok. If you end up with more filling, just crack up a few more eggs, splash in some milk and continue to fill your muffin cups.

After I boil and dice my potatoes, I like to put them back into the skillet just for a little color. You don’t have to do that step though.

Then you just saute your onion, garlic and bell pepper

add the cheese and bacon

stir it together- and there is your filling!

Divide it evenly among the muffin cups (you’ll need two trays). Make sure to grease the muffin tray well!

Beat the eggs with the milk, pour it evenly over the veggie mixture.

If you grease the pan well, the frittatas should come out pretty easy, however I have one muffin tray that sticks way more than the other regardless of the greasing. So I think I’m going to toss it! Just in case yours stick, they really shouldn’t so buy a new pan. :)

I love entertaining for brunch- it’s not as stressful, you can really have fun with the food. Throw in some coffee and mimosas and you’re set!

Question: What is your favorite brunch food?

    Um, YUM. And this looks so easy! What a great idea for entertaining.

    Hmm…my favorite brunch food would probably have to be anything with fruit in it…do mimosas count?! ;-)

  2. These frittatas do look delicious! I’m never really quite sure what to serve overnight guests for breakfast, but I think these would be perfect!

    These look fabulous! I make something very similar I call breakfast cupcakes to allure my kids! ;)

    How long would you bake these if you were doing mini muffins? 10 minutes?

    can you freeze these? what is the best way to warm them up?

      Hi there,
      Personally I don’t freeze them because I don’t like the texture of the eggs after being in the freezer. I just looked up several other recipes and some people said they do freeze frittatas and then go straight from being frozen to the microwave. I would suggest making a batch- they will last the whole week in the fridge and then you can experiment by freezing a couple. Good luck and I’d love to hear your thoughts.
