Ingredients

  • 5 large eggs
  • 250 grams cooked ham more or less, I used Jamon de Bola
  • 3/4 cup cheese freshly grated, I used Queso de Bola (an Edam cheese)
  • 1/2 medium red bell pepper (or 1 small chopped)
  • 1/2 medium green bell pepper (or 1 small chopped)
  • 3/4 cup mozzarella cheese freshly grated
  • olive oil for frying the ham
  • salt & pepper to taste
  • 1/8 teaspoon cayenne powder optional

Instructions

  • 1) Pre-heat oven at 350°.
  • 2) In a pan, fry the ham for 2 to 3 minutes each side. Allow for oil to drip and cool then dice.
  • 3) Beat eggs, add cooked ham, green & red bell pepper, and cheese. Season with salt and pepper. Add cayenne for a little heat and mix together.
  • 4) Arrange mini cupcake silicon molds in a baking tray.
  • 5) Pour the egg mixture, leaving about a bit of space. Sprinkle grated mozzarella. To add more color on top, add a piece of ham and red & green bell pepper.
  • 6) Bake for 5 to 8 minutes or until eggs are cooked. Insert a toothpick at the center to test if no egg clings. To avoid burning the top, opt to cover with foil.
  • 7) Allow silicon molds to cool for 1 to 2 minutes or use tongs to flip the mini cupcake silicon molds into a serving plate.
  • 8) Enjoy these bite sized Ham & Cheese Frittatas!

Notes

Makes about 30-36 mini muffins.
Should you have leftovers, refrigerate. You can reheat through a microwave or oven toaster for 1 to 2 minutes. Or, freeze for longer storage.
These are also fun to serve and munch on during brunch get-togethers.
