Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Grease 6 muffin cups.
  2. Bring the quinoa and water to a boil in a saucepan. Reduce heat to medium-low, cover, and simmer until the quinoa is tender and the water has been absorbed, 15 to 20 minutes.
  3. Combine cooked quinoa, eggs, egg whites, zucchini, Swiss cheese, ham, parsley, Parmesan cheese, and white pepper in a large bowl and mix until thoroughly combined. Spoon mixture to the top of each prepared muffin cup.
  4. Bake in preheated oven until the edges of frittatas are golden brown, about 30 minutes. Allow to cool at least 5 minutes in the pan before serving. Serve hot or cold.

This recipe is a keeper. I did not have the exact ingredients, so I used an Italian blend of cheese instead of swiss. I also seasoned it with what i had on hand. This was so good that my 3 and 5 year ate it. One thing I did notice is that with the size of my muffin cups this recipe made 12 and I only cooked it for 20 minutes. Thanks for a great recipe.

These were a hit! They would be a great addition to a brunch table, and I would also send these in my child's lunchbox for a healthy and tasty lunch item. I used what I had in my fridge, so instead of ham, bacon, added green onion, and used a tex mex cheese instead of swiss. Yum!
