Mini Smoked Salmon Frittatas

April Showers bring May….showers. 

Not talking that wet weather we all so desperately wish away during the month of April but talking about the kind of showers that bring so much joy. Bridal, baby, grad parties, you name it. Lucky for me, these here showers usually coincide with my favorite meal ever. Brunch. 

That’s why this month, Recipe Redux is featuring delicious brunch dishes, fit for a shower.

I’m typically a savory brunch girl. Don’t get me wrong, I love my sweets but I usually crave some sort of protein-packed dish with eggs to get me through the afternoon. In keeping with savory protein dishes, I opted to make a frittata. But since we’re in shower season, we went mini with these bad boys.

  1. Hi Kara — Just found your site and this recipe. In the photos it looks like the egg mixture is served on top of something reddish-colored, but there’s no mention of anything else in the recipe. What am I seeing? Thanks,

    • Hi Sharon – welcome to my site! I think what you’re seeing is just bad lighting and photography as that’s an old recipe of mine :). That reddish-color is just the egg mixture – it just darkened with baking. Thanks!

  2. I love these! They are so easy to make and they taste amazing! I also love the versatility of them. You can pick and choose your favourite veggies!

  3. So nearly did something very similar Kara! And was going to style my brunch with a glass of bubbly but had none left in the fridge. Love it.

  4. What a great idea for smoked salmon!

  5. This reminds me that I haven’t had smoked salmon in ages and this recipe may be the thing that changes that.

  6. Kara! This is totally happening in my house. Love it.

  7. I’ve seen a lot of recipes with muffin cups. Your frittata recipe seems like the perfect treat for a brunch. I’m interning with the Meal Makeover Moms and I love reading all of these recipe redux blog posts.
