These quick and simple mini frittatas are a healthy snack option for your child’s lunch box. They will also go down well for afternoon tea. You can omit the zucchini if you want.

  • 12 slices thinly shaved ham

  • 1/3 cup coarsely grated cheddar

    Preheat oven to 160°C.

  • 2.

    Lightly grease an 8 x 1/3- cup capacity muffin tin.

  • 3.

    Line the prepared muffin holes with shaved ham being careful not to overlap the ham too much, but aiming to cover as much of the muffin holes as possible.

  • 4.

    Squeeze all excess moisture out of the grated zucchini.

  • 5.

    Lightly whisk the eggs in a medium-sized bowl, add the cheese and zucchini and stir gently to incorporate.

  • 6.

    Pour mixture into each ham-lined muffin hole, ensuring you get a little zucchini and cheese in each muffin.

Why does the recipe state 12 slices of ham, yet we use 8 in 8 muffin holes and the recipe states serves 8.
My muffin tin has 12 holes should the recipe read 12 slices in 12 holes and serves 12..if this is the case is the filling enough to fill all 12. DARN I HATE IT WHEN RECIPES ARE NOT CORRECT.
