Like a mini frittata, they are high in protein and will keep you fueled for the day ahead and full til lunchtime! Perfect for snacks or for lunch-boxes, if you make a huge batch you’ll always have something healthy in the fridge.
To make the Cheesy Courgette Frittata Muffins, you first need to dice up the courgette (zucchini) and the red onion. A white onion will do if you don’t have any red ones. Slice up the garlic and heat the oil in a pan. Fry off the courgette, onion and garlic in a pan until it has softened and browned slightly. Season with plenty of salt and pepper.
While the courgette mixture is cooking, prepare the rest of the dish. Turn the oven on to 200C (390F) and grate the cheese. Break the eggs into a large bowl and season with salt and pepper. Whisk to combine the eggs and then add half of the grated cheese, keeping half back to use as a topping.
Grease the muffin tin with some butter (or oil if you prefer) and when the courgette is ready add it to the egg and cheese mixture and stir everything well to combine.
Pour the mixture into the muffin tin and put them into the oven for ten minutes until they have set and risen.
After 10mins, remove from the oven and turn on the grill. Top each of the muffins with a sprinkling of the remaining grated cheddar. Place back under the grill until the cheese is browned and bubbling and then they are ready to serve.
Perfect for a lazy brunch, a grab-and go breakfast or great for lunch-boxes. They can be kept in the fridge for up to a week, or even frozen and defrosted as needed. You can personalise them to your tastes adding in bacon or chorizo or feta or any other ingredients that you fancy! Delicious cold or you can warm them slightly before you tuck in! A healthy, yummy, protein-filled snack!
