Muffin Tin Meals

I am very fortunate to have my husband, who is also banded, with me on this journey. Not only is he great support, but it helps a lot when it comes to cooking. It is nice that I don't have to worry about cooking for one. Plus, my kids are young enough that they eat whatever I give them. I can't imagine how hard it is to cook for one bandster. So, I thought this might help....


Mini-Frittatas
Ingredients:
1 potato, chopped
1/2 onion, chopped
1 cup mix peppers (green, red, yellow), chopped
5 eggs or 1 1/4 cups egg subsitute
1/3 cup milk
salt and pepper to taste
1Tbs. Oil
Pam cooking spray

Directions:

First, heat oil and preheat oven to 350. Spray muffin tin with a good coat of Pam. Second, saute vegetables. While they are cooking, whisk eggs, milk and seasonings. After vegetables are cooked, divide them evenly in your greased 12-count muffin tin.



Fill loosely with vegetables. Add egg mixture just to top of the vegetables. Cook in oven for 10-12 minutes. Then Broil for another minute or two. Be careful not to burn anything.


Take them out of the oven when done. The edges should start to pull away from the sides of the muffin tin. Take a knife and loosen the edges and gently pry frittata loose. Freeze individually. Then place in a Ziplock bag.


VOILA', Breakfast for the next 6 days!


Makes 6 Bandster Sized Portions. 115 calories per serving.

  1. I've just stumbled on this blog and I'm six days post-band surgery. I can't tell you how sick of Jello I am and I can't wait to try this. I might even add a little cheese during the broil part. Thanks for all the recipes!
