These Mini Skillet Frittatas are perfect to serve to family and guests for any breakfast or brunch.
I love to serve foods in mini serving dishes. They look more elegant and children/grandchildren love being served in them. I found these mini cast iron skillets a few years ago and am always trying to come up with new ways to use them. My family enjoys eating quiche and souffles frequently, so I decided to bake Mini Skillet Frittatas in them a few days ago.
My grandchildren had fun making these one day, because they were able to create their own, using ingredients they like. If you have guests for a brunch, just line up the skillets and mix ingredients to create a delicious variety of frittatas.
Start by spraying the skillets with no stick cooking spray and place them on a parchment lined baking sheet.
Arrange sausage, ham, and veggies evenly in the skillets.
Whisk eggs, salt, pepper, hot sauce, and half and half together. Pour carefully between the mini skillets.
Top with cheese. Bake.
Remove from oven. Serve in mini skillet or remove to a plate.
Top with bacon. Garnish with baby spinach and tomatoes. Add a few more dashes of hot sauce.
These can be served warm or at room temperature. They can even be reheated and served the following day.
Try these Mini Skillet Frittatas for brunch, showers, tea parties and a lazy weekend morning.
