Ham and Cheese Mini Frittatas

You may want to double the batch – these mini frittatas will go quickly at your next cocktail party! Serve with two other outstanding appetizers: Baby Lamb Chops with Artichoke and Tarragon Dip and Crab Salad Bites on Endive.

Note: Use 2 mini-muffin tins with 2-inch cups to make these easy party bites. These tins can be found with baking supplies in larger grocery stores or places where baking utensils are sold. Most hold 12 mini-muffins per tin, while some hold 24. This recipe will make 24 pieces.

Ingredients

  • 1/4 pound deli-sliced Swiss cheese, finely chopped
  • 6 slices Canadian bacon, finely chopped
  • 3 tablespoons chives, snipped or chopped
  • A few grinds black pepper
  • 8 eggs or 1 pint egg beaters
  • 2 tablespoons melted butter

Preparation

Pre-heat oven to 375°F.

Mix together the chopped cheese, Canadian bacon and chives and season with a few grinds of pepper. In a bowl, beat the eggs. Brush the muffin tins with melted butter.


Using a teaspoon, fill the 24 mini-muffin cups halfway with the cheese mixture. Using a ladle, fill the cups to just below the edge with the beaten eggs.


Bake until golden, about 12 minutes. Remove and let cool to handle, then arrange the frittatas on a plate and serve.
