Green Egg (No Ham) Frittata Bites
Makes 12 bites
- 2 tablespoons olive oil, plus more for greasing
- 2 small shallots, thinly sliced
- 5 ounces baby spinach or arugula, roughly chopped
- 1/4 cup finely chopped sundried tomatoes (about 6)
- Sea salt
- 8 large eggs
- 1/2 cup unsweetened almond or organic whole milk
- 1/4 cup finely grated aged Manchego or Pecorino
- 1/4 teaspoon fresh ground black pepper
- Preheat the oven to 350°F.
- In a large skillet, heat the olive oil over medium-high heat. Sauté the shallots until soft and beginning to brown, about 5 minutes. Add the spinach and cook until wilted, about 3 minutes. Remove the skillet from the heat, stir in the sundried tomatoes, and season lightly with sea salt. Set aside to cool slightly.
- Meanwhile, in a 4-cup liquid measuring cup with a spout, whisk the eggs and milk, until the whites are completely incorporated. Add the cheese, 1/2 teaspoon sea salt, and black pepper.
- Grease or spray a muffin pan with olive oil. Fill the prepared cups halfway with the egg mixture, and divide the greens between them. Pour the remaining egg mixture on top, making sure there's 1/4 inch of room left. (They will puff up!)
- Bake for 20 minutes, or until the frittata bites are golden brown around the edges. Let them cool in the pan until they pull away from the sides, about 5 minutes. Slide a rubber spatula around the edges to loosen the frittatas. Unmold and serve warm—the bites can be stored in the fridge for up to 4 days and reheated.
