Hi all! Happy Easter!! How was your weekend?? If you may noticed, my blog got a bit of a makeover. I figured it was about time I changed it up. A big thank you to Zesty Blog Consulting for helping to make my blog look just fabulous!
I had a weekend full of work and fun! I cranked out quite a few hours of good school work Saturday. It’s so nice when you are in the groove and able to get work done (which hasn’t been me lately). Since I worked hard during the day, I relaxed with swanky boyfriend in the evening, where he treated me to a delicious home cooked dinner.
I thought I would return the favor, and decided to make him a special Easter morning breakfast!
I don’t know about you but mini foods are just so darn fun and adorable. These mini frittatas would be a fabulous option to serve for brunch, btw.
Mini Frittatas (serves 9)
- 2 large white button mushrooms (about 1/2 cup), thinly chopped
- 4 asparagus stalks (about 1/4 cup), thinly chopped
- 2 ounces colby jack cheese, thinly sliced
- 1/4 cup scallions, thinly sliced
- 1 teaspoon canola oil
- 6 eggs
- 1/2 cup fat-free milk
- Salt and pepper to taste
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Start by heating oil in pan. Add asparagus and mushrooms.
Sauté asparagus and mushroom until softened, about 5-7 minutes. Remove from pan and set aside.
Next, beat eggs until combined.
Add in scallions…
mushrooms, asparagus, and sliced cheese.
Mix well to combine. Add salt and pepper as desired.
Spray muffin tin with nonstick spray and fill tins with egg mixture about 3/4 to the top.
Bake for 25 minutes or until frittatas look slightly browned.

These are too stinkin’ adorable!
There are so many options with these minis. The boy and I even talked of making a Mexican inspired variety with beans and peppers.
These are simple, yet satisfying. Filled with protein and fiber, these mini frittatas are a great way to start your morning.
I may just have to host my own brunch so I have another excuse to make these cuties!
I served them alongside with fruit. This breakfast almost canceled out the Easter candy we may or may not have eaten at 9 am in the morning.
The rest of the day was actually quite busy. We went to church, went to visit his family, then went to visit my family! Whew!
Tony’s mom reminds me a lot of mine. She is very crafty and loves to entertain. She had all sorts of Easter candy and other treats! She even made us each our own Easter egg with our names on them.
His mom is also like my mom in the fact that she is an amazing cook. Her salsa is out of this world delicious! I told her I need to get the recipe.
Tony’s brother’s girlfriend made strawberry shortcake on a stick. Such a neat idea!
And if the boy’s mom wasn’t great enough, she made my favorite treat of all time…chocolate covered strawberries. YUM!
There was so much delicious food and lots of leftovers. I had such a wonderful Easter!
Stay tuned for my upcoming TV segment that I’ll be doing Monday. I am a bit nervous since I didn’t get as much time to practice, but I will go through it a couple more times tonight. Fingers crossed!
Have a fabulous night! Thanks for reading!
