Kale And Red Peppers Frittata Cups

Kale and Red Peppers Frittata cups title image

Ah the joy of a healthy breakfast!

Such a fabulous way to start the day and set yourself up for success.

I’m a firm believer that healthy should be fun and flavorful.

And these frittata cups are exactly that — fun, tasty little bundles of wholesome goodness!

These kale and red pepper frittata cups are just as fun to make as they are to savor, one scrumptious bite after another.

You can enjoy these fresh out of the oven with mixed baby greens or a side of arugula or watercress, or make these ahead of time and serve cold for a satisfying mid afternoon snack.
