Mini Frittatas with Zucchini, Tomatoes, and Goat Cheese


If you have guests coming this week or you are doing some traveling and need handy car food, or just want to make something a little fun for the family, here's a great one for this week. These little frittatas are delicious and a good way to get some veggies into the kids too! The original recipe comes from Does Leap Farm, and I came to it by way of Tracey Medeiros Dishing Up Vermont Cookbook.

1.25 cups grated zucchini
Salt
2 eggs
1/4 cup whole wheat flour
1 cup grated cheddar
2 garlic cloves, peeled and crushed
1/8 tsp salt
1/8 tsp pepper
1/4 cup goat cheese (around 2 ounces) crumbled (parm or feta good too!)
1/4 cup seeded minced tomato
1.5 TB fresh basil

Preheat oven to 400°F. Lightly oil and flour a mini muffin tin; set aside.

Place zucchini in a colander and sprinkle lightly with salt. Place colander in a bowl and set aside to drain about 15 minutes. Place salted zucchini between layers of clean tea towel or paper towel and gently press down to remove excess water.

Whisk the eggs in a medium bowl. Add zucchini, flour, cheddar cheese, garlic, salt, and pepper, and mix well. Spoon mixture into each muffin cup, just even with the rim, and sprinkle with the crumbled goat cheese. Bake in the oven until the edges are crisp and brown and frittatas are set, about 12 minutes. Carefully remove from oven and evenly top with tomatoes and basil. Return to oven and bake until tomatoes have heated through, about 1 minute.
