Why didn’t I think of this earlier?  I have no idea!  I have been extremely sick for about 5 months ago, well the last 5 years if we want to be honest, however, a few months ago, I had been in one of my worst rough patches I have had since before my brain surgery.  I spent several days in the ICU at a rehab facility to try to get my MS issues under control and came home very weak, unable to walk and really unable to prepare meals for myself.

My mother in law and I put our minds to work and thought lets make these frittata’s I make everyday in muffin size and then my kids can easily microwave them and bring them to me in bed.   Perfect!  It was a perfect meal for me.

Then I thought, these are not only great for people with illnesses like mine, but perfect for kids to eat before school for a quick breakfast and for adults to make for easy breakfasts before work.  As we all know, breakfast is an important start to our day.  They are also great to take for a tasty lunch at work.  Just grab 2 frozen egg muffins and put them in an airtight container.  By lunch they will be thawed and you can warm them in the microwave for 1 min 30 sec.

There are two ways you can make these.  You can make them with muffin papers and then just eat them like you would a cupcake or muffin.  Or you can use the silicone baking muffin tins and they will pop right out and then you don’t have the hassle of peeling a wrapper off.  Either way you still end up with a delicious veggie frittata.  Place two in single ziploc baggies and either put them in the fridge or freezer.  For heating out of freezer, defrost for 1 minute then heat on normal setting for 1 minute 40 seconds or until heated through.  Out of the fridge, microwave for 1 minute 30 seconds.  Now enough talking lets get to the recipe!!!

      You can certainly use a dairy free milk, it just won’t be as rich and fluffy. It will still taste wonderful.
