Frittatas are so simple and versatile—you can throw in almost any vegetable or cheese you have in the fridge and easily whip up this classic Italian egg dish. Although traditionally prepared on a skillet, in this recipe, the frittata is baked in a muffin tray, to make individual cups. Enjoy as an on-the-go weekday breakfast, or for brunch on a delicously lazy Sunday morning.
