Baby Mini Muffin Tin Frittatas make a perfect food for little hands. They are nutritious, taste really yummy and are quite filling. Oscar was only 7 months old when he first tasted these and they are a huge hit with him for both breakfast, lunch or as part of his dinner.
This photo was taken when my little Oscar was only 8 months old. Still so curious about all the food I was putting in front him. There is so much pleasure to be had watching your little one inspecting every part of what he is eating. I love the inquisitiveness of it all and could have watched him all day devouring food.
These lovely little frittatas are so easy to whip up and are so handy to have made in the freezer when you are looking for that quick ready made dinner for your little ones (although the adults have been known to eat them too). They defrost really quickly in a fridge so just take one out before you go to work then re-heat in either an oven for 10 minutes or in a microwave for 30 seconds.
I used one of my favourite vegetables butternut squash for these. Its so versatile and it really tastes great with egg. Butternut squash provides ample amounts of dietary fibre, is high in vitamins, potassium and is also a great source of beta-carotene.
I used goat cheese in the recipe as it has a lower amount of salt compared to other cheeses (cheddar, parmesan etc). It really works with the squash too and the flavours go well together.
The best thing about these little bites is that they are really great to bring with you when your out and about. They are pretty non-messy and i’ve been known to bring them with me as a snack when we’re out on walks and Oscar is just looking for something now! (i’m sure we all know those days).
I hope your little ones like it as much as mine does.
