These Green Veggies and Feta cheese Mini Frittatas are a great vegetarian appetizer recipe!
– Frittata is an egg-based Italian dish similar to an omelette or crustless quiche, with minor differences:
– The eggs are beaten vigorously to incorporate more air than the usual omelette, for a fluffier result.
– The optional and customizable ingredients are added to the beaten row eggs, rather then folded in while the eggs mixture is already cooking.
– You never fold a frittata, you serve it as it is, fully rounded.
– Although I know many people who can finish a frittata by themselves, usually it’s served in slices and it’s delicious both hot or cold.
These are the common rules, but rules are meant to be broken, and that’s why today we make Mini Frittatas instead of one big whole!
These Green Veggies and Feta cheese Mini Frittatas are a bite-sized version, perfect for a party, lunchbox or mini starter/appetizer. It takes 5 mins to put them together, then straight in the oven until crisp and golden and ready to serve before you even have the time to set up the table!
This recipe will please everybody, it’s vegetarian, kids friendly and super easy to make!
You can easily make 2 batches and store in the fridge the left-overs for about 4 days, I love to eat them cold, and after you try these Mini frittatas, I’m sure you will too!
