Mini Bacon and Potato Frittatas

    36? Are you kidding?? I followed the recipe exactly and used a level tbsp in each cup but still had barely enough for by 24-cup pan, with perhaps 3 tbsp of liquid egg left in the mixing bowl. Now I have to decide whether to take only 24 to our Christmas gathering tomorrow or start over and make another batch. I don't know how they taste yet (won't until tomorrow; can't spare any!) so I don't know if I'll make them again after today, but this waste of my time does not make me happy.

    Love these! Made them with frozen shredded potatoes which was soooo easy. They are a little bland and needed salt, so I didn't give 5 stars.

    I served this on New Year's Eve. I had made it earlier in the day and then just warmed up at midnight and added the sour creme. I did not alter the recipe, but did have to extend cooking time a little. Everyone seemed to enjoy them immensely. I think it is appropriate for special occasions.....probably a little fussy to make for everyday. We also had small sandwiches and, of course, champagne. The best hint I can offer is to make sure that your muffin tins are VERY WELL oiled, as they can be a little difficult to extract from the tin. Otherwise.....great!

    I make frittatas all the time for breakfast but never thought to make them small for appetizers. These were very yummy and looked elegant with the sour cream and chives on top (this added a lot to the taste as well, don't skip it). I had no trouble getting them out of the pan at all either- just sprayed with nonstick cooking spray.

    This just what I was looking for a take and go breakfast. I had to play with the recipe, and this is what I did. I added one half chopped and sauteed red bell pepper, 1/4c sauteed chopped onion, a cup of shredded cheddar, 1/2 pkg. frozen chopped spinach squeezed and drained, nutmeg, 1 container fake eggs, and five eggs. I got 43 minis. I will make again with my changes.

    These were so delicious! I did not have any trouble removing them from the pan. I just sprayed non-stick spray prior to baking and they popped right out. These were very simple to make and my guests LOVED them! I didn't top them with sour cream or chives, just ate them plain. They are even good cold.

    I would have given this a 5 star except for the difficulty removing the frittatas from the mini muffin pans. The taste is fantastic and the presentation is lovely. If someone discovers an easy way to make these easy to get out of the pans, I'd love to hear it. I'll certainly make it again and try greasing the pan.

    This was great for a large crowd at a gathering as the recipe made plenty. Could make 3-4 hrs. ahead of time and followed the recipe no subs. Great bite size and look greats on a simple silver tray with the sour cream on and chopped chives. Will def. make again for a crowd.

    I made these as a side for our New Year's Eve gathering (we serve appetizers in place of dinner) and they were gobbled up! The only change that I made is that along with the dollop of sour cream I put extra chives and some grated cheddar cheese on top. These would be great with a brunch menu also. Loved them and will certainly made them again!!

    From all of the great reviews I thought I'd try this - it was a pain to make and didn't taste that great....pretty boring for the amount of effort involved. I already threw the recipe out!

    I loved them! I made these for a party. It was a little time consuming doing the potatoes, but I think next time I'll try it with hashbrown chunk potatoes. I used 1 tsp ground Thyme instead of 1/4 and 3 tbsp parmesan cheese instead of 2. They looked just like the photo, & we loved them!

    I thought these were great and pretty easy. I left out the chives because I didn't have them, and they still tasted pretty good. I did it in the 9x13 baking dish instead of the muffin tins and it worked great. I was hesitant to put sour cream on the top of them, but it made it even better! Next time I may add some red peppers and definitely the chives.

    I really liked this recipe and so did my husband. I am going to take to my book club meeting tomorrow. I followed the recipe as written except I cooked the potato, onion, thyme mixture in all of the bacon grease except for 2tsp ( I did not read recipe carefully enough!) but they tasted fine. Be careful not to let sit too long in muffin tins too long or they will get soggy on the bottom.

    This is a good recipe. It’s a little time consuming but tasty. www.EntertainingRecipes.org

    I give these a C. I expected more flavor and was a bit disappointed. Not worth the work IMO. DO NOT REHEAT - they will get rubbery.

    So good!! They have so much flavor! These are perfect for me for breakfast. I'm making them up ahead of time and refrigerating them. 45 seconds in the microwave and done.
