Baby Snob loves, and I mean loves, scrambled eggs. She would chow down on them for every meal if we let her. Here’s the truth though, at 6:30 a.m. (yes, that is usually when we are up and eating breakfast by), cooking scrambled eggs is one of the last things I want to do. Why? It means I have to do more dishes after breakfast.
I know, I know. What can I say? Sometimes I am selfish and lazy, and realistically toast requires less clean up. Most mornings though, I do try to put my child’s wants and health above my desire to avoid cleaning, and I make eggs. Thus, my idea for these mini frittatas was born. I made a large batch, froze them and just heat one up each morning – brilliant!
Here is what was included in my CSA share from Maude’s Market this week (part of which was used for this recipe):
Pork – breakfast sausage links
Yellow Split Peas
Mini Sausage and Asparagus Frittatas
1 bunch asparagus, washed and cut into 1/2′ pieces
1 onion, diced
1 tablespoon herbs (parsley, rosemary, etc. – optional)
6 breakfast sausage links
1/2 cup shredded cheese (mozzarella or cheddar – optional)
1. Grease a muffin tin and preheat oven to 350 degrees.
2. In a skillet brown the sausage. Once cooked through, set aside and cut into bite-sized pieces.
3. In same skillet, cook onion and garlic over medium heat for 2-3 minutes. Add the asparagus and cook for another 2-3 minutes. Stir in the sausage and set aside.
4. In a large bowl, whisk together all of the eggs and add salt and pepper to your taste. Pour egg mixture into greased muffin tin, about 1/2 way up.
5. Add a large spoonful of sausage/vegetable mix to each muffin cup and sprinkle top with cheese (if using).
6. Bake at 350 degrees for 20-25 minutes or until edges begin to turn light brown.
I decided to not add cheese because Baby Snob doesn’t like cheese unless it involves macaroni or pizza. I can’t say I blame her – I remember having the same sentiments as a child.
