Perfect for little hands (and big ones!) this mini version of an Italian staple can be served at any time of day. Breakfast-on-the-run. Serve with salad for lunch. An appetizer for dinner. Glorious and versatile eggs really shine in this recipe, especially for anyone who enjoys breakfast at any time of day!

A great way to use up what’s in your fridge all you need is some eggs, cheese, vegetables and unless you’re a non-meat eater, a bit of ham or sausage goes a long way to adding flavour; about 1/2 cup of each is all you need.

For this post I halved the recipe, which made 12 adorable & tasty mini frittata.
