Frittata muffins are the perfect make-ahead breakfast. You can bake them and store them in the fridge. When you want a quick breakfast, pop them in the microwave, and you will have a tasty protein-rich breakfast in less than 2 minutes. 

What’s The Difference Between A Frittata And An Omelet

A frittata is an Italian dish made with eggs and other ingredients such as cheese, meat, and vegetables. An omelet is cooked in a skillet and then folded over itself. Omelets can also be filled with vegetables, meat, or cheese. 

However, the main difference between frittatas and omelets is that frittatas are cooked undisturbed. They are not moved once added to the pan.  

How Do You Keep Frittatas Fluffy

Dairy is the secret ingredient that will make your frittatas fluffy. Dairy will add a bit of creaminess and moisture. 

However, the trick is adding a small amount of dairy. Add 1/2 cup of dairy for every dozen eggs you use to make the frittata. You can use heavy cream, plain Greek yogurt, cottage cheese, whole milk, crème fraiche, or sour cream to make your frittata muffins fluffy.

Why Are Frittatas Healthy

Frittatas are made with healthy ingredients such as eggs, onions, and bell peppers. Eggs contain beneficial compounds, such as vitamins D and A, lutein, and selenium, which may protect the body from chronic diseases, improve blood lipids, and boost cognitive functioning. 

Onions contain bioactive compounds, which may decrease inflammation, help you manage your weight, and protect against cancer and cardiovascular disease. 

Bell peppers also contain bioactive compounds. These compounds possess antioxidant, antifungal, and antibacterial activities. They can also protect nerve cells from damage, deterioration, and impaired functioning and may help prevent diabetes. 

How To Stop Frittata Muffins From Sticking To The Pan 

Eggs will stick to the muffin pan. But there are a few ways you can prevent this. 

Coat a non-stick muffin pan with non-stick cooking spray or oil before you pour the batter into it. The non-stick cooking spray should prevent the frittata muffins from sticking to the pan. 

However, if your muffins stick to the pan after they are baked, let them sit in the pan for 5 minutes. The muffins will release steam, allowing you to remove them from the pan easily. 

Alternatively, to prevent the frittata muffins from sticking to the pan, you can line your muffin pan with muffin liners before adding the batter. I recommend using silicone muffin liners. Silicone muffin liners have a non-stick surface that allows the egg muffins to pop right out.

You can use paper liners. But you won’t be able to remove the egg muffins from the liners even if you spray them really well with non-stick cooking spray. If you try to remove the frittata muffins from paper liners, they will break into pieces.

How To Store Frittata Muffins 

To store the frittata muffins, let them cool completely. Place the frittata muffins into an airtight container and place them in the fridge. They will last for 4-5 days. 

Can I Freeze Frittata Muffins

Technically, you can freeze frittata muffins. I have not tried this method because they never last long enough for me to freeze them. 

Nevertheless, if you want to freeze your frittata muffins, place them into a freezer-safe container and freeze them for up to 3 months. 

How To Reheat Frittata Muffins 

While you can reheat the frittata muffin in the oven or air fryer, the muffins may dry out. Therefore, reheating the muffins in the microwave is best. Reheat the muffins in the microwave for 1-2 minutes until they are heated through. 

If you are reheating frozen frittata muffins, thaw them in the fridge overnight. Reheat the muffins in the microwave for 1 minute until heated through. 

If you forget to remove them from the freezer, don’t panic. You can still reheat them in the microwave. Just cook them for 1 minute longer until they are warm.
