Adapted from Handle the Heat
Makes 12 frittatas

8 large eggs
1 medium bunch broccoli, cut into small florets, steamed*, and cooled
1/2 cup shredded cheese of your choice
Salt & pepper

1.  Preheat oven to 350F. Spray a muffin tin with nonstick cooking spray or line with cupcake wrappers. In a large bowl, beat eggs well. Add remaining ingredients and stir to combine.

2. Divide egg mixture evenly among 12 muffin cups. I find a cookie/ice cream scoop is the best way to do this. Bake until set, 12-14 minutes. Let cool for 5-10 minutes before removing from pan and serving.

*I steam broccoli by placing it in a microwave-safe bowl with a half inch of water, covering tightly with plastic wrap, and microwaving for 1.5-2 minutes. You can also boil it on the stove for 3-5 minutes or use a steamer basket.
