Our family eats about 90% paleo, so that means we eat a lot of eggs! Like a lot of eggs. I am constantly searching for ways to keep eggs interesting for my kids. I already have mom guilt about never letting them eat store bought cereal and toast, so when I hear ‘eggs, again!!!!!’ I cringe a little. 

One of my favorite resources since making the switch is the Nom Nom Paleo website and blog. I think it’s because of the sheer quantity of recipes available. It also helps that I have liked everything I’ve made from that site. Here is what I made this morning, but I encourage you to see for yourself

Frittata Muffins-

-1 lb. ground beef (grass fed if possible), you will probably only use half of the meat so either double the recipe up and use all of it or do what I did which is freeze half of it so that when I make this again next week, I won’t need to brown the meat again. 

-1 small onion chopped

-Handful of spinach ripped up

-1/2 cup shredded cheese

-heaping tablespoon plain yogurt (full fat), you could use kefir or cream or milk if you wanted probably

-6 large eggs

Preheat oven to 350

Brown the meat and onion in a pan and then let cool. 

Scramble eggs, yogurt, cheese and spinach in large bowl. 

After the meat mixture is cool, fill up the muffin pan or silicone muffin cups half way with meat.

I like my baking cups because they don’t stick at all!

You can also use whatever types of seasonings you are in the mood for. I wanted them to be kind of like tacos so I chose salt, pepper, garlic, cumin, and paprika. Very tasty. Kids loved them and begged for more.
