Weight Watchers Recipe of the Day: Individual Ham, Cheese & Vegetable Frittatas
As soon as I saw this recipe for Weight Watchers individual ham cheese veggie frittatas in a recent Weight Watchers Weekly, I knew I wanted to give them a try.
Last night was the night. I love having breakfast food for supper every once in a while, a holdover from when I was a kid and it seemed like such a treat.
A layer of defrosted frozen hash brown potatoes forms the crust for these easy ham, cheese and veggie mini frittatas.
What is it about individually portioned foods baked in muffin tins that seems so fun?
A tasty mixture of eggs, lean ham, onion, pepper and low-fat cheese makes up the filling.
As the Weekly suggests, you can whip up a batch of these mini frittatas on Sunday night and then you’ve got breakfast ready and waiting in the fridge for the week.
Then just pop them in the microwave for a few seconds and voila – an easy, healthy, tasty breakfast.
Skinny on Weight Watchers Individual Ham Cheese Veggie Frittatas
I thought my first attempt at these hash brown crusted egg cups turned out pretty well and I ended up having two for dinner. The rest were packed away for breakfasts and/or snacks.
I like my hash browns crispy, so next time I will bake them a little longer.
And some of my muffins stuck to the bottom of the tin a bit, so be sure to use non-stick muffin pan and spray in generously for best results.
Each individual frittata has *3 PointsPlus (*3 SmartPoints) value according to Weight Watchers.com.
These are now just *2 SmartPoints on the New WW Freestyle Program.

Mini ham, cheese and veggie frittatas baked in muffin cups make an easy healthy breakfast, lunch, supper or snack.
- Cooking spray
- 1 pound frozen hash brown potatoes, thawed
- 4 large eggs, beaten
- 1 tablespoon fat-free milk
- Salt and pepper to taste
- 2 ounces cooked lean ham, finely chopped
- 2 tablespoons finely chopped sweet red bell pepper
- 2 tablespoons finely chopped green bell pepper
- 2 tablespoons finely chopped onion
- 1/2 cup low-fat shredded cheddar cheese
Position an oven rack in the center of your oven and preheat oven to 350F degrees. Generously coat 8 muffin cups with cooking spray.
Press the defrosted hash browns into the bottom and up the sides of each muffin cup to form a crust.
Bake for 15 to 20 minutes.
Meanwhile, make the filling: In a medium bowl beat the eggs and milk together. Season with salt and pepper. Stir in the ham, peppers, onion and cheese until well blended.
Remove the potatoes from the oven and press the potatoes down firmly with a spoon so that they are like mini pie crusts lining the bottom and sides of the muffin cups.
Divide the mixture evenly, pouring it into the center of each of the eight prepared muffin cups.
Return to the oven and bake until the potatoes are crisp and golden and the egg mixture is set, 15 to 18 minutes.
Remove from the oven and let sit about 5 minutes before serving.
I didn't have any green pepper, so used 4 tablespoons red instead.
Next time I think I'll add a little garlic powder and seasoned salt to the hash brown potatoes before baking them.
