Make it!

Directions

  1. First, preheat your oven to 350 degrees F. Line a muffin tin with silicone or paper muffin liners, or spray the tin generously with cooking spray. Set this aside for now.
  2. Heat the olive oil in a medium-sized skillet over medium heat. Add the onion and bell pepper and cook these, stirring occasionally, for 3 to 5 minutes. Add in the spinach and cook until it is slightly wilted. This will only take about 30 seconds.
  3. Transfer the vegetables to a large bowl. Then, add in the chopped ham, cheddar cheese, and cooked quinoa. Whisk together the eggs and almond milk in a liquid measuring cup, then whisk in the salt and pepper.
  4. Pour the egg mixture into the bowl with the other ingredients and stir to combine.

  5. Divide the mixture evenly between the 12 wells of the muffin tin. Bake the frittatas for 18 to 22 minutes, then allow them to cool in the pan for 3 minutes.
