English Breakfast Mini Frittatas

Every weekday morning I walk through the tube station and pass a McDonald’s. It’s the one place that always, no matter what time of day or night, has a queue running outside the door with people piled into it. Lots of teenagers appear there daily to get their 7:30am fix before school. Having never been a “fast food junkie” and with so much information out there about what’s good / bad for us, I can’t quite comprehend why people still want to indulge in such bad food, at any time, let alone so early in the morning. However, I imagine for most people they would claim it’s convenience rather than anything else. Convenience doesn’t buy a long life free from disease. Convenience is an excuse.

Jamie Oliver has recently launched a campaign to to get the Government to impose a tax of 20 per cent on fizzy drinks and his 5 point manifesto makes a lot of sense. My favourite point being to show the amount of sugar (in teaspoons) on the front of each sugary drink, if this doesn’t make people think twice about what they are putting in their bodies then I don’t know what will. You all know my thoughts on sugar so I am a big supporter of this campaign and I really do urge that any one UK based sign it here. Sugar is a silent, painful killer; it causes obesity, type two diabetes, heart disease, rots your teeth and a number of other ill effects. The sooner we can can educate the next generation and make them realise what they are putting in their bodies for better rather than worse the less complications and implications they might suffer as a result.

These “English Breakfast Mini Frittatas” might not be the carb and salt loaded McDonald’s Egg Mcmuffin, however, they are darn good, I promise. What’s even better for me is that I barely need any insulin for them as they are such low carb. Made with free range eggs, organic bacon, tomatoes, spring onion and mushrooms they are laden with good fats, protein, essential vitamins and nutrients. Fun for kids to make and get involved with, perfect for lunch boxes, picnics or just a snack on the go. I love to have mine for breakfast with half an avocado and a wedge of lemon.

Serves: 8-12
Prep time:
Cook time:
Total time:
 
Ingredients
  • 8 eggs, whisked together with 3 tbsp water
  • 2 spring onions, finely chopped
  • ½ tsp sea salt
  • 110g cherry tomatoes, sliced in to half
  • 60g button mushrooms, sliced
  • pinch black pepper (to each muffin)
  • 5 rashers bacon
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 180° c
  2. In to a frying pan over high heat place bacon and dry fry for approx 2 minutes on each side (you want it to be cooked but not crispy as it will cook in the oven later). Place to the side
  3. In to the same frying pan place a little oil (preferably coconut) and fry off mushrooms for about 2 minutes- just to soften them. Place to the side
  4. Chop your bacon in to thin (about 1.0 cm) length strips
  5. With all your ingredient in front of you, in to muffin holders (I always use silicone as they don't need greasing, but if yours are not silicone then please grease first) place lengths of bacon (about 4 pieces in each one)
  6. Followed by a few mushrooms, 2 cherry tomato halves and then fill with egg mixture to near the top
  7. Sprinkle a little sea salt over the top and add some chopped spring onion and a little black pepper to finish
  8. Repeat until all the mixture has been used (I make around 12 medium sized muffins)
  9. Place muffins in to the oven for around 15 minutes (and then check), if they have not risen or are still a little soft then keep them in for a further 5 minutes and check.
  10. Once risen, take out of oven and place on wire rack to cool
  11. Serve hot or cold
Notes
Keep in the fridge in sealed container for up to 4 days

  1. Sounding lovely, here in the States they are called mini Frittata’s (Italian term) and we love them and are able to customize them with lots of goodies too. Wonderful job Emi. PS MacDonald’s is our least favorite to even get a cup of coffee!!! Stay well my UK Friend. Cheryl

    • They are so customisable aren’t they! Super simple. McDonalds’ is just a place to be avoided at all costs in general! Wishing you a wonderful week! X

  13. Hi Emma, just in the middle of making these! (Discovered your blog a few months ago and LOVE it.) Thank you for all the lovely recipes. I was wondering if you’ve ever tried freezing these? I wanted to make a big batch but don’t think I’ll get through all of them in 4 days! Thanks, Liz x

    • Hi Liz- thank you, so kind and so pleased you enjoy my blog. You have caught me online so this is a very speedy reply! I have never, personally , frozen them. BUT I have just had a Google and it seems to suggest that they would do long as they were thawed at room temperature. There is a chance that the consistency could change a little. But, as I haven’t tried it I can’t be certain but maybe try three or four and see ? Sorry, that probably doesn’t help! E x

      • Emma, thanks so much for your speedy reply! Unfortunately I wasn’t as speedy as you at checking so just kept that batch in the fridge. They tasted delicious though! I’ll definitely be making them again and will experiment with the freezing. Very useful for quick breakfasts! Will let you know how I get on 🙂 x

    • Hi Rebecca- rasher refers to bacon- so one ‘strip’ of bacon so to speak (same as one ‘rasher’). I hope that makes sense and sorry to confuse. You could sub for anything really – some ideas: courgette, red pepper, aubergine, feta, spinach… hope that helps! E x
