The Better Breakfast, Lunch, & Dinner: Spinach Goat Cheese Frittata Minis

May 28, 2012

It's a natural fact that everything is best in minis. I don't know why or how this works, and I believe it is a conundrum best left for Sheldon to solve. Perhaps it has something to do with the fact that if you make it in a mini serving, you can have an unlimited amount, and still have consumed less than if you were to eat one regular size portion...or at least that's how it works in my mind. 
I also like to think that the spinach counteracts the less than healthy ham and cheese of these frittatas. I'm blissfully ignorant about nutrition, and for my happiness and sanity it is probably best that I stay this way.
{I like French bread with everything, so naturally...}

{Lining cups with prosciutto}

{Goat cheese}

{Egg, cheese, spinach, and milk doesn't look to pretty yet}

{I used an ice cream scoop for even frittata minis}

My parents don't eat ham so I also made some with thinly sliced turkey meat and they were delicious too! I imagine that if I ever get sick of making French bread from scratch (I doubt it, but let's pretend for a second) I will serve these on the side of pancakes.

24-28 slices prosciutto
1½ cups frozen chopped spinach, thawed
8oz goat cheese
8 large eggs
½ teaspoon kosher salt
½ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
¼ cup heavy cream or milk 

  1. Preheat oven to 400℉. Spray or brush a muffin tin with oil, then line each cup with 2 slices prosciutto.
  2. Whisk eggs. Drain spinach and squeeze off excess liquid then add to eggs. 
  3. Crumble goat cheese into the spinach and egg mixture, then add salt, pepper, and cream. Stir until combined, then divide the mixture into the 12 prosciutto lined cups. 
  4. Bake for 20 minutes, or until the eggs are puffed and slightly golden on top. Remove from oven and use a fork and knife to carefully remove each egg cup from the muffin tin. Serve immediately, or let chill and serve as a cold dish.
