Mini Breakfast Meat Frittatas

Today is both National Chocolate Cake Day and a Catholic Friday. Today’s recipe has no connection whatsoever to either of those things. It’s neither a cake nor meatless.

I think it’s just plain cruel to have National Chocolate Cake Day in January. Really? Most of us have a New Year’s Resolution of putting our best foot forward to improve our health. We began our resolution back in October, and thus far I am happy to say we’ve stuck to it. Holidays were cheat days. Just look at the spreads most of us are faced with during the Holidays . . . I was a very busy gal!

Now I will admit, I thought about sharing my Christmas Cake recipe for today. It was amazing – a two-tone yellow chocolate cake with hot fudge frosting. But there were no step by step pictures, only a finished picture with the Nativity of Our Lord front and center. I’ll just need to make it again sometime without all the Holiday Hoopla. But that’s a story for another day.

So why the Frittatas? More to the point, why not? Okay, so it does contain not one but two different types of meat – and pork at that. But maybe you’re looking for something delicious for tomorrow, or after church on Sunday. And what could be better than Egg Muffins? Enjoy!

Mini Breakfast Meat Frittatas
3 slices Bacon, cooked
6 Sausage Links, cooked
4 tablespoons Shallots, finely minced
Cooking Spray
10 Eggs
1/2 teaspoon Salt
1/4 teaspoon Black Pepper

Dice bacon. Place in a skillet and fry until nicely brown. Remove from skillet with a slotted spoon. Drain on paper towels, set aside.

In the now empty skillet, cook sausage over medium heat until cooked through. Remove from skillet, dice and set aside.

Finely mince the shallots. Add to the empty skillet. Cook shallots just until beginning to brown and flavored with meat drippings. Toss shallots with the meats and set aside.

Heat oven to 350 degrees. Spray a muffin tin with cooking spray, set aside.

Crack eggs, place in a 4-cup measuring cup. Whisk with salt and pepper.

Fill each muffin tin 2/3 of the way full with beaten eggs. Divide meat mixture between the muffin tins.

Bake in the heated oven for about 20 minute or so. Check at 15, and watch carefully. The Frittatas should puff up, with the center set.

Once removed from oven, frittatas will deflate a little as they cool. Delicious on their own, or as part of a brunch table.
