My kids and I like eggs for breakfast a few times a week, but the old standby, scrambled eggs with cheese, can get boring. With just a little bit more effort, you can make these Broccoli Cheddar Mini Frittatas. They are fun to eat and filled with veggies and protein. A winning recipe all around!

To make these, you start by steaming the broccoli in a small amount of water. It cooks really quickly – 5 minutes is all it takes. To make your morning even easier, you could make these with leftover vegetables from dinner the night before.

While the broccoli is steaming, saute just a little bit of finely chopped onion. I chopped it finely enough that my kids didn’t even notice it in the frittatas.

Finally, whisk the eggs and milk and pour them into the mini muffin tins. Add the broccoli, onion, and cheese, bake, and that’s it. While the mini frittatas are baking, prep some fresh fruit and whole-wheat toast to serve alongside. You’ll have a healthy homemade breakfast for your whole family.

I loved these frittata muffins. I think I probably ate about six of them myself. I think you (and your family) will love them too! They would also make a great brunch appetizer.
