  • Preparation Time: 15 minutes
  • Cooking Time: 18-20 minutes
  • Total Time: Approximately 35 minutes
  • 6 large eggs
  • 120ml whole milk
  • 1 small red bell pepper, finely diced

  • 1 tsp dried oregano
  • 1 tsp dried basil
  • ½ tsp garlic powder
  • ½ tsp onion powder

  2. Prepare the Veggies: Dice the red bell pepper and courgette into small, even pieces. This is a great opportunity for children to practice their knife skills with supervision.

  4. Add Ingredients: Stir in the diced vegetables, grated cheddar cheese, ham or bacon (if using), and all the dried herbs and spices.
  5. Fill the Muffin Pan: Pour the egg mixture evenly into the prepared muffin cups, filling each about three-quarters full.
  6. Bake: Place the muffin pan in the preheated oven and bake for 18-20 minutes, or until the frittatas are set and slightly golden on top.
  7. Cool and Serve: Allow the frittatas to cool in the pan for a few minutes before removing them. Serve warm or at room temperature.
