Mini Avocado Caprese Frittatas

I am always on the hunt for ideas for low carb meals for Wiki. As he is one of those people. I, on the other hand  am a carbatarian. Carbs visit me in my dreams. I have tried it out a few times and mainly I am only successful when I go the route of limiting my carbs to the morning. or afternoon. or evening. I When I sleep.

Anyways, frittatas are big in our house as they were a staple in Wiki's growing up. They are basically the easiest recipe to throw together and the combinations are endless. Basically, you get to make an omelette and not fail at the whole flipping process. Oh, that's just me. hmmm.

Anyways, I made a twist on the classic caprese, added avocado and voila, happiness in our house. I promise you cannot go wrong with these. Unless of course...you do go wrong in which case I have made no such promise.

8 eggs
1/4 cup milk/cream
1 small pkge cherry tomatoes(halved)
package small mozzarella bites
1/2 cup pesto(or you can use fresh basil)
1 large avocado(chopped)
shredded parmesan(optional)

In a muffin pan(spray with non stick spray liberally) place a few tomatoes, mozzarella pieces & avocados. Add about a tbsp of pesto to each cup. Whip the eggs and milk together and pour into each opening.

Bake at 350 for about 20 minutes or until slightly firm. 

You can bake ahead of time and have ready for breakfast for the week or these are perfect for a brunch gathering.

Linking up with Jessica, Ashley, your whims wednesday, all she cooks


  1. That's how you make a fritta?! I had no idea! I make a very similar dish to this, but these sound even better. I'll be making these this weekend! Thanks for linking up with Jess and me!

  2. Avocados AND caprese!! Your definitely after my tummy with this one! And I've never had a fritata, so this is going to be quite the treat! :)
