How to Serve Mini Fiesta Frittata
This frittata is easy and tasty to eat on its own but there are other ways to enjoy this dish:
Pair it with rice: What is more Pinoy — or Asian for that matter — than serving this with steamed rice?
Make the full-sized version and slice it into wedges: You do not have to bake this in the oven. In fact, if you want the full-sized version, you can do it on the stove. Just lower the heat to low and cover with a lid until the center is set.
How To Cook Mini Fiesta Frittatas
The frittata is actually quite easy to make. The hardest part is prepping the mix-ins! You can easily do this by using your mini chopper or food processor to roughly chop your vegetables. It’s going to be all mixed in the frittata so their sizes and shapes aren’t that important.
Then it’s just a matter of whisking the eggs and mixing it all in. Transfer to a the well oiled cupcake baking pans and bake!
Tips To Make Easy Mini Fiesta Frittatas
1 Use cupcake liners.
The cupcake liners are a no-mess hack that is hard to ignore. However, since these do contain eggs and will deflate like a souffle or a chiffon cake, these will stick to the liners and shrink. That’s okay! Just peel off the liner when eating it. No worries!
2 Liberally oil the baking pan.
However, if you do use the baking pan without any liners, liberally oil the cups even if your cupcake pan is nonstick. These will stick to the pan despite the nonstick quality of your pan (blame the cheese) but the good news is that if you loosen them as soon as the frittatas exit the oven, these will easily release from the baking pan.
Mini Fiestas Frittatas Storage Tips
Go ahead and refrigerate and freeze these frittatas.
These make an excellent baon recipe idea because they not only refrigerate well but also freeze well. Just remember to wrap them in plastic wrap so that the frittatas do not absorb any odd flavors while stored.
