Mini Frittatas

A delicious Italian muffin recipe! Frittata is a dish originating from Italy. It is a dish born of poverty. In the past, many Italians in rural areas did not have enough money to make a new meal every day. They used leftovers from the previous meal to make a savory pancake or muffin. In the past, a fritatta was often made from egg, vegetables and pasta.

Nowadays, fritatta is made from egg, grated cheese, onion, ricotta and vegetables. It is actually a mix between an omelet, pizza and pancake. The main ingredients of the fritatta are low in carbohydrates. People who follow the low-carbohydrate diet can therefore enjoy this Italian specialty without feeling guilty.
