miniquichepinach1

We are once again anticipating our return to Umbria, and look forward to meeting this seasons new guests who will come rent out farmhouse Iil Casale di Mele. We offer a wine tasting with appetizers to each coup of guests who come stay with us, and these mini frittata are one of the appetizers I offer. This egg based recipe is very versatile as you can add a variety of fillings and flavorings depending on your mood. In this version, I used some sautéed spinach and mushrooms, sun-dried tomatoes and goat cheese. You can serve these mini quiche or frittata at breakfast, or on an antipasti platter as I often do for our guests. They are easy to assemble, quick to bake, and very tasty too! Wrapped in plastic, these mini frittata will keep well for three days in the refrigerator, or one month in the freezer.
