HNC Mini fritattas

Love eggs! Wish I had chickens, but I don’t at the moment. Eggs are a great source of protein, have vitamins and minerals and healthy omega 3 fats. I always try and have boiled eggs on hand as a quick and easy snack in the afternoon, or to add to a green salad to take to work. lunchbox

 

Mini fritatta’s are a great way to add some quality protein to your child’s lunchbox, and a way to sneak in some vegetables too – win win all round! They are EASY to make – they can be whipped up in five minutes – gotta love that!

      Hi Ellen
      Perhaps it’s liquid from the grated vegetables? Maybe try squeezing out any liquid especially from zucchini….that’s all I can think of I’m sorry!
