These mini frittatas are a cute portable breakfast that you can customize with your favorite add-ins. My version has bacon, cheese, and peppers and they are so easy to make. Make them for a grab-and-go breakfast or for brunch.
I love eggs and can eat them for any meal, but I especially love them for breakfast and these mini frittatas are my newest favorite way to serve them. They’re easy to make, portable, and great for any meal. Plus, you can customize them with your favorite mix-ins.
Mini Frittatas Recipe
- Shredded cheese
- Cooked bacon
- Chopped bell peppers
Just whisk the eggs, milk, and salt together in a bowl. Pour the mixture into a greased muffin pan.
Add the shredded cheese, bacon and bell peppers. The fillings will initially sink to the bottom of the muffin cup, but as the eggs cook the fillings will rise up to the top.
Bake the mini frittatas for about 15 minutes or until they are puffy and lightly golden around the edges. Serve warm.
These were really easy to whip up and I like how versatile they are with the fillings. These would be perfect for brunch or for a portable on-the-go breakfast.
Different Mix-Ins for Mini Frittatas
You can easily change up the mix-ins for these mini frittatas. I like to add about one tablespoon of add-ins for each frittata. Here are some ideas!
- Chopped green onion, red onion, or minced garlic
- Chopped spinach or kale
- Fresh herbs like parsley, chives, cilantro, or thyme
- Switch up the cheese and try shredded pepper jack, gruyere, cheddar, or provolone
- Diced ham or chopped breakfast sausage, just be sure to precook it!
- Mushrooms would work well, too, but you will need to cook them first.
These mini frittatas were really easy to whip up and I like how versatile they are with the fillings. I’ll definitely make these again. I couldn’t stop popping them into my mouth.

What’s the difference between the mini frittatas and the mini omelets? It seems like the same ingredients. Is the texture different?
They have different amounts of milk – the frittata ones are a little denser (like a classic frittata) and the omelet ones are lighter and fluffier. Hope that helps!
The list of ingredients says milk but then the instructions say half and half. Which one did you use or does it not matter?
Sorry about that. it should read milk, but I think it should work with either
Try beating the egg yolks and the white separately, making the whites quite stiff, then folding the two together. Should hold the shape better.
Thanks for the tip!
Just made these. Now, I’m no cook. <— I mean, seriously ill-equipped for housewife duties, but these were easy. Directions are fantastic. I used turkey sausage, red, yellow and orange bell peppers and mexican shredded cheese…
They. Are. Fantastic.
Thanks for the recipe! They were so good, I doubled the recipe and made another batch!
Yay! so happy you had positive results!
I should try this! I wake up hours before my own “FH” (who can’t cook a lick) and spend the morning working, so he always goes out for breakfast. I bet he could pop these in the microwave and save us some money!
Yes! Definitely check these out. So easy to make and you can bring them on the go, reheat, etc. My FH can’t cook either. haha.
I love eggs too… make frittata’s often enough… I love carmelized onions, mushrooms & red pepper with a little mozzarella on mine… or zucchini, carrot and onions… yumz
Your mix-ins sound good!
