(Toddler friendly) Frittatas

Frittatas are Italian for baked eggs. They make for simple Sunday brunch when you want to stir things up in the kitchen without working a sweat. My Son loves this recipe and I adore the fact that he can try healthy self-eating without the mess. Add your favourite vegetables to these cloud-like fluffy eggs to add that crunch as your bite into this savoury toddler-favourite.

Shopping list:

  • 4 eggs (for 4 frittatas)
  • 1/3 green pepper finely diced
  • 1/2 tomato finely diced
  • 5-6 broccoli florets chopped
  • 1 cup cheddar cheese/Amul cheese shredded
  • Zucchini/mushrooms/beans (optional)
  • Basil leaf to garnish (optional)
  • Salt to taste

  1. Preheat oven to 180°C/350°F
  2. Beat together eggs. Add the finely diced vegetables, shredded cheese and salt and combine.
  3. If you are adding onions. bacon, sausage or spinach to this recipe, cook these separately on a pan with oil for 3-4 minutes before adding to the egg mixture.
  4. Grease the muffin ramekins with oil (olive oil works for me) and pour the egg mix into 2/3rd of the ramekin only. Cook for 15 minutes in the oven. Eat slightly cook.
  5. I used a regular knife to gently detach the frittata from the ramekin when cooked.
