Yada, Yada, Frittata


Only a month ago, I mentioned here how much I loved Starbucks' Florentine Egg Sandwich. Earlier today, I read on the Starbucks Gossip blog that the warm breakfast sandwiches would soon be coming to an end. I was hoping it was just a nasty rumor, but unfortunately I confirmed this news on the real Starbucks website.

In this letter, once-again-Starbucks-CEO, Howard Schultz , states that not only will they be closing some stores, but that the sandwiches will be discontinued by the end of fiscal year 2008. Many customers complained that the smell of the sandwiches interfered with the coffee aroma. Yada, yada, yada. No more favorite sandwich. So I decided to make my own little portable egg meal. A mini-frittata!

This post, refers to this post, which lists a bunch of similar posts including this one, which I modeled my frittata after. I didn't measure my ingredients, so I can't give you a real recipe, but I used either 8 or 10 eggs, a pinch of salt, a little rice milk, pepper, garlic powder, oregano, spinach, Asiago and Romano cheeses.

I whisked the eggs, mixed everything together and poured the mixture into a greased mega-muffin pan, which makes six huge muffins. I baked this at 350 degrees for about 45 minutes and they were done. They had to cool for a bit before I could remove them. Ta da! I can put these in foil, bring them to work and heat them up there. Problem solved!

A mega-muffin pan?! This is my first time seeing one, and it sure is mega! Love those spinach cheese muffins: egg muffins have been on my to-make list for a while.
And I've never been inside a Starbucks :) that must be a record, eh?

I do the same way but in big pan. Muffin portions are excellent for individual serving!:)

I love anything Florentine. Was it frozen spinach?

Mary said...

I saw those posts and made the egg muffins in silicone heart shaped pans!

Kalyn said...

I'm so glad you liked them! I make these at least a couple of times a month. Now I'm jealous that Mary has heart-shaped silicone muffin tins!

nupur - It was a happy day when I found that pan! If you enjoy strong coffee, you'll love Starbucks coffee, otherwise it might taste bitter to you. I love their desserts and the general atmosphere too.

asha - I gave my muffin pans a workout this week. I have another recipe coming up!

avila geraldine - LOL! I guess they sort of do.

pink dogwood - I think these would be great for brunch!

nance - It was frozen spinach. I just microwaved it, drained it, then threw it in. And the microwave thing is kind of scary. Oh well. I guess what's done is done.

Anali said...

mary - Oh those sound so cute! That would be a fun Valentine's Day breakfast!

kalyn - Thank you for idea! I'll definitely be making them again. I bet those pans will be on sale on February 15th!

aviana - Well hello! I hope you have a good weekend!

starry nights - Thanks! It is a shame, but I'll get over it. I do like these too!

so simple - I do plan on making them and freezing them at some point, but these are going pretty fast! I do like the idea of these as appetizers too. I have a mini-muffin pan that I haven't used yet...

Zen Chef said...

Yes! Who needs Starbucks anyway? (actually i'm addicted to it :-)
Make you own!

Anali said...

zen chef - Starbucks is a great treat for me, so like you, I do kind of need them. But I like to make my own food too! ; )
