Frittata on Heart-Shaped Toast

Makes ~6 servings

(Can be Vegetarian, Nut, Wheat and Dairy Free) 

This is my favorite frittata recipe because it can be 100% customized to fit your diet and make your taste buds happy.  The muffin-sized portions are the perfect size, and most toast can be cut into a heart shape easily, without a cookie cutter! Fun to make, quick to cook, and yummy to eat! Try some of the other ‘optional’ ingredients listed – get creative!

Ingredients:
o   2 – 3 Eggs
o   4 Pieces of whole grain bread (or brown rice bread for wheat-free) lightly toasted and buttered
o   ½ Cup chopped kale or spinach
o   3 Tablespoons shredded mozzarella cheese
o   ¼ Cup finely chopped chicken sausage
o   3 teaspoons of milk (use coconut or rice milk for dairy/nut free)
o   Pinch of salt & pepper
o   Cooking spray

Tools Needed:
o   Measuring Cups
o   1 Medium bowl and 4 Small bowls
o   Muffin tins
o   4 Whisks or forks

Vegetarian: substitute meat for other veggies like: zucchini, squash, tomatoes, onion, scallions, broccoli, asparagus, peppers, meat-free sausage, peas, carrots or green beans.

Dairy-free: remove cheese and milk, and use coconut, almond or rice milk.

Other options/combos that we love in a frittata:

  • Turkey bacon, brie cheese, arugula
  • Potatoes, cheddar, scallions – sour cream on top
  • Sweet onion, kale, tomato, feta cheese
  • Spinach, goat cheese, roasted zucchini, red onion
  • 1 cup frozen peas, carrots, green bean mixture
