Make-Ahead Mini Frittatas
- 2 teaspoons olive oil
- 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
- 1/4 cup chopped fresh basil leaves
- 1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
- 1/2 cup plain yogurt
- 8 large eggs
- 1 1/2 cups grape tomatoes, halved
- 2 large cloves garlic, minced
- 4 (2-ounce) links all-natural Italian chicken sausage, cooked and thinly sliced
- 1/8 teaspoon sea salt
- 3/4 cup chopped yellow onion
- 2 small yellow potatoes, peeled and diced
Preheat oven to 400ºF. Mist a 12-count muffin tin with cooking spray.
In a medium skillet, heat oil on medium-low heat. Add potatoes, onion and salt and sauté for about 10 minutes, stirring occasionally, until vegetables are tender. Add sausage, garlic and tomatoes, and sauté for 2 minutes more. Divide mixture among muffin tins and allow to cool for about 10 minutes.
In a medium bowl, whisk together eggs and yogurt. Stir in cheese, basil and pepper. Divide evenly among muffin cups. Bake for 20 minutes, until puffed and set.
Remove from oven and let cool for about 20 minutes. Slide a knife around each frittata and gently remove, placing on a large rimmed baking sheet. Freeze until firm, about 2 hours, then transfer to a large zip-top freezer bag. Return to freezer until ready to serve, up to 1 month.
To serve, preheat oven to 400ºF. Place frozen frittatas on a rimmed baking sheet misted with cooking spray and bake for 20 minutes, until heated through. A microwave may also be used, if desired. Frittatas can also be eaten cold; defrost overnight in the refrigerator.
