Brie and Butternut Squash Mini Frittatas

Lately it’s been hard to write about anything other than training for the LA Marathon, but luckily I have friends who keep me honest.  A few weeks ago on the blog, I promised to post a ton of upcoming recipes, and as my friend so kindly reminded me, I only posted two recipes. :-) Since I also made a deal with this same friend that I would post one recipe a week when I first started this blog (definitely broke that deal!), I needed to bite the bullet by writing a recipe post.

IMG_6704-pI have been sitting on this recipe since Vegas in November! As usual, inspiration struck at a restaurant when I was served a brie and butternut squash filled quiche. It was delicious so immediately I wanted to recreate a healthy version at home.

Brie and Butternut Squash Mini Frittatas
Prep time: 
Cook time: 
Total time: 

Serves: 12
 

Ingredients
  • grapeseed oil for the mini muffin tins
  • 8 large eggs ( or 4 large eggs and 6 eggwhites)
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon pepper
  • 2 tablespoons low fat sour cream
  • ¼ cup cubed brie
  • ¼ cup freshly grated Parmesan
  • ⅓ cup sautéed butternut squash
  • ¼ cup artichoke hearts in water, water removed

Instructions
  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.
  2. Oil 2 mini muffin tins (each with 24 cups) with grapeseed oil.
  3. Whisk the eggs, sour cream, pepper, and salt in a large bowl to blend well.
  4. Stir in the cheeses, butternut squash and artichoke hearts.
  5. Fill prepared muffin cups almost to the top with the egg mixture.
  6. Bake until the egg mixture puffs and is just set in the center, about 10 to 15 minutes.
  7. Using a rubber spatula, loosen the frittatas from the muffin cups and slide the frittatas onto a plate.

Question: How do your friends keep you honest?

  1. Love this recipe! So easy and delish.

    My friends more than anything keep me sane. I can be a bit uptight at times so my friends truly do remind me what’s important. I think I gravitate towards relaxed people because they make sure I don’t take life so seriously. I haven’t had much success with friends who are more high-strung than me haha

    • Thanks Davida! I used to be very high-strung throughout college but for some reason I have become very laid back in the last 5 years. Don’t get me wrong… I still consider myself Type A. :-)
