Spinach and Mushroom Frittata Cups - Eat Like You Give a Fork

Every parent (especially mamas) can use a pick-me-up right now more than ever; times are tough, incredibly busy, and there never seems to be enough time in the day. In May, we are celebrating motherhood all month long with our Month of Mama campaign; join in the fun here. You'll get FREE weekly e-goodie bags each week including the following:

  • FREE at-home workouts.
  • Easy family-friendly recipes.
  • Meditations for #momlife.
  • Playlists for backyard hangs, workouts, and family time.
  • Weekly events & more.

We're starting the party a little early by partnering with Mareya Ibrahim, author of Eat Like You Give a Fork: The Real Dish on Eating to Thrive, who is sharing a handful of fan-fave recipes from her book. Keep an eye out each week for something new, and step up your kitchen (and breakfast) game with these spinach and mushroom frittata cups --

Spinach and Mushroom Frittata Cups

Spinach and Mushroom Frittata Cups

Makes 6 frittatas (3 servings)


  • 2 tablespoons ghee (clarified butter) or raw coconut oil
  • 2 tablespoons chopped shallot
  • ½ cup finely chopped cremini (baby bella) mushrooms
  • 1½ cups fresh chopped spinach
  • 2 tablespoons finely diced red bell pepper
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 cup egg whites
  • ¼ cup unsweetened, homemade almond milk
  • 1½ teaspoons baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon smoked sea salt
  • 1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • ¼ cup diced fresh mozzarella di buffala cheese


  1. Preheat the oven to 400°F. Grease six wells of a muffin tin with a little coconut oil or line them with paper liners.
  2. In a large skillet, melt 1 tablespoon of ghee over medium heat.
  3. Add the shallot and sauté until soft, about 1 minute.
  4. Add the red bell pepper and mushrooms and cook until soft, 3 to 4 minutes.
  5. Add the spinach and cook until just wilted, about 1 minute.
  6. Remove from the heat and transfer to a paper towel, squeezing off excess moisture.
  7. In a small bowl, whisk together the eggs, egg whites, almond milk, baking powder, remaining 1 tablespoon ghee, salt, and pepper until frothy.
  8. Divide the spinach mixture evenly among the prepared muffin cups.
  9. Pour the egg mixture into each cup, filling them two-thirds full, then evenly distribute the mozzarella among each.
  10. Bake for 20 to 25 minutes, until the egg is set.
  11. Serve warm and store the rest in a sealed container and refrigerate.

These make a great meal prep dish, so double the batch and wrap in aluminum foil to pop into the freezer. Just heat them up in the oven or toaster oven when you’re ready to enjoy.
