These individual serving size frittatas are great for a quick breakfast. I used squash and zucchini, but you can substitute any combination of veggies. Put one between an english muffin with cheese for a quick egg sandwich.

Just made this tonight – added my own twist with diced mushrooms, salmon, spinach, onion, and some colby jack cheese. Can’t wait to see if my 3 year old will gobble it up tomorrow – I finally decided she’s had one too many bowls of Cheerios at this point for breakfast. ;) Thanks for the inspiration – I love the idea of mini-frittatas! Perfect for little preschooler & toddler hands.

My husband & I love love loved this recipe! We were so excited to try a new egg recipe- for some reason we can’t get our daughter (12 mos) to eat eggs, except egg salad. (But that doesn’t count. The mayo gets her every time- she’s a huge fan of mayo.) She turned her head in refusal. :/

Oh no, she didn’t eat it? I sometime put one between bread with cheese as an egg and cheese sandwich. Have you tried Weefuls? We did a giveaway of them with the last contest, and you can make one version of the “crepe/waffle” with eggs. It might be a good way to work eggs in your daughters diet!
