Cin's 'Sausage and Cheese Mini Frittatas'
I used to always make my Frittatas in a pie plate..but found this was to fun for kids and adults.
This is a pic of the first time I got this pan and created these little gems...when we go on vacation to the condo we take a bag full of them to pop in the microwave in the mornings for a quick and filling breakfast with toast or biscuits.
Used a mini-muffin tin with 2-inch cups to make these easy party bites.
These tins can be found on the baking aisle in larger markets or at many discount stores.
Most mini's hold 12 mini-muffins per tin, some hold 24 (mine holds
If yours only holds 12 then you'll need 2 tins. This recipe will make at least 24 pieces (plus).
Ofcourse you can use a regular muffin tin that holds 12, just adjust your time.
My Grandgirls loved them because they like eggs an cheese, (hey can even help you make them).
They also liked the fact that they could put them in the microwave when they wanted some and..."I do it myself Nana".
I hope you give them a try and enjoy.

Spray muffin tins with non-stick spray.
Using a teaspoon, divide meat mixture among the 24 mini-muffin cups.
Put a nice size pinch of the shredded cheeses on top of each meat cup.
Remove from oven and let cool to handle, arrange on a plate and *serve.
Now if you and yours like onion...load`em up if you'd like.
When I make them for just the Hubby and I, we like more onion and garlic (both fresh from our garden and sauteed).
