The holidays are delightful, but they can be taxing on your waistline and budget.

Fear not because I am here to help you with both!

This recipe for Mini Frittatas makes a great grab & go breakfast and can also make a cute appetizer!

These Mini Frittatas are cute little appetizers or handheld breakfasts. They are super inexpensive and easy. Plus, you probably have everything in your fridge.

It's like the perfect recipe: easy + healthy + inexpensive + tasty + non-fussy

Doesn't get much better than that in my book.

Eggs are a nutrient rich source of budget-friendly lean protein, and they are easy to keep in you fridge. Eggs are full of vitamins like choline, omega-3's, selenium, B Vitamins, and most of those vitamins are found in the egg yolk {so no more egg-whites only}.

Eggs are great for breakfast, lunch, dinner, and appetizers. Case in point: these mini frittatas. They could be considered a breakfast or an appetizer.

They can be as fancy or as simple as you want. Cheese, herbs, green onions, bell peppers, or whatever your heart desires {and you have in your fridge} are all welcome additions to these frittatas. Something to note though is that the more additions you add, the more mini frittatas they'll make. I used 1/4 cup of green onions and it made 12 mini muffins.

I topped them with a dollop of Greek yogurt to make them look a little prettier but that's completely up to you. All you need are the basic ingredients and you can add as much or as little as you'd like. Eggs and milk are the only two mandatory ingredients. The other ingredients are just lagniappe.

So with that, I give you this simple and basic recipe that you can use any time of year but that will be much appreciated in a time of budget constraints and health resolutions.
