Muffin Tin Egg White Frittatas

"My Dad and I came up with this idea. We often have lunch or brunch at friends’ houses or at our house,” says Moira. “They are good for lunch, breakfast, or a snack! I'd serve them with fresh salsa. They fit easily in a lunch box, and travel well. Every time you make a frittata, you can change the ingredients and that will change the flavor. My favorite is when we make it with cooked onions, low-fat feta cheese, and chopped spinach!" - Moira Doran, age 10, Louisiana

Makes 12 servings


  • 1 yellow onion, peeled and chopped
  • 2 teaspoons olive oil
  • 1 package frozen chopped spinach, thawed
  • Cooking oil spray
  • 6 ounces feta cheese
  • 1 tomato, chopped
  • Salt and pepper
  • 1 pint of egg whites or whites from 8 eggs


  1. Preheat oven to 300°F. Grease a 12-muffin tin with cooking spray. In a large sauté pan, warm the oil over medium-low heat. Add the onion and cook until soft, about 3 minutes.
  2. Squeeze the water out of the spinach and add to the cooked onion. Add the feta cheese and tomatoes, and season with salt and pepper to taste. Using a large spoon, divide this mixture into each muffin cup in the tin. Carefully pour the egg whites into each, leaving a little space, about ¼ inch, for it to rise. Bake for 15 to 20 minutes, or until the frittatas have risen and feel set. Place on a cooling rack for 10 minutes, then remove from the cups.
