Mini Frittatas September 16 2014 by Simone Denny

I love the humble Frittata. It's a great way to use up what you have in the fridge  - plus it's quick and easy. Mini Frittatas make a great addition to a brunch or lunch and are perfect for the school lunch box.

This recipe is for mini Frittatas but the same recipe can be used in a baking dish a main meal.
