Lunchbox fritattas2 min read

Reading Time: 2 minutes

My oldest child (Miss Ames) has an aversion to eggs at the moment in any form but fried. She even sets up the fry pan for me with coconut oil and everything to make it easier for me. I usually do ‘poached’ eggs in the Thermomix for everyone else. So Mum came up with this version especially for her.These are so quick and easy to whip up and a great addition to the lunchbox for both adults and children.

Ingredients:

  • 1 clove of garlic
  • 1 onion
  • 1 1/2 cups of cooked veggies (broccoli, cauliflower, spinach….& whatever leftovers you have)
  • 1/3 red capsicum
  • 1 zucchini
  • 100gms bacon
  • 8 eggs
  • 1tbsp coconut flour
  • 60gms cheese
  • Fresh parsley
  • Fresh basil
  • Smoked paprika
  • Salt & pepper to taste
  • Coconut oil to grease muffin pans – I find silicone muffin cups/pans the best & they save a lot of cleaning afterwards.

Method: (Thermomix version followed by regular version)

  • Grate cheese and set aside
  • Put all veggies, parsley and basil in bowl of TM and chop. Set aside.
  • Mix in all other ingredients except paprika and cheese.
  • Combine the above two mixes and mix well.
  • Pour even amounts into greased muffin tins, (about 15)
  • Sprinkle with grated cheese and smoked paprika.
  • Cook for 20 mins on 180 C

Method: regular version

  • Grate cheese and set aside
  • Chop up all veggies, parsley and basil and add to a mixing bowl. Set aside.
  • Mix the bacon, eggs and coconut flour together except the paprika and cheese.
  • Combine the above two mixes and mix till combined.
  • Pour even amounts into greased muffin tins, (about 15)
  • Sprinkle with grated cheese and smoked paprika.
  • Cook for 20mins on 180 C.

Sharon’s notes:
I added all the ingredients together including the cheese and paprika. It just made it that little bit faster for me time wise.
I also freeze these and pop them in the lunchbox of a morning before school.

Verdict:
They all get eaten so that’s great.
They have to be eaten at lunch if they come out of the freezer the morning of consumption. I usually put them in about 8am and they are defrosted by about 1pm in winter.

Judith’s notes:

My husband likes to have these (re-heated) for breakfast. He also takes them in his food box when he is on SES call outs.
