My favorite healthy appetizers: Florentine Frittata Cups

Eggs are a great source of protein. They contain only 70 calories, 5 grams of fat, and 7 grams of protein. They’re also incredibly versatile – toss a hardboiled egg on a salad for an extra burst of protein for lunch, scramble them for breakfast, or serve on a tortilla for dinner.
Here is a recipe that I love to make when I have company over. They make an impressive appetizer and an essential brunch snack!
Florentine Frittata cups:
1/2 cup Shallots, diced 2 cups Kale, chopped 1 Roma tomato, diced 1/4 cup Basil, shredded 1/4 cup Feta cheese 1 dozen eggs 3 tbsp milk, water, or almond milk Salt /pepper to taste
Heat oven to 350 degrees. Grease muffin cups with coconut or vegetable oil or line with aluminum foil. Prepare vegetables. Beat eggs and whisk together with milk, salt, and pepper. Combine egg mixture and vegetables in a small bowl and fold in the feta. Evenly spoon the vegetable ingredients into a muffin pan or cups. Pour 1/4 cup of the egg mixture on top, and bake for 20-30 minutes or until thoroughly cooked.
