If you’ve ever had Spanish style eggs then you know.

And if you’ve followed this blog for a while, you’re well aware of my love for mini frittatas. So I combined the two!

Mini frittatas are easy to meal prep and even easier to eat for breakfast in the morning. To make these lighter, I used chicken chorizo instead of traditional dry chorizo. And since I couldn’t find lomo (spanished cured pork tenderloin) I use prosciutto. And roasted red bell pepper instead of piquillo peppers. It’s all about improvising.

The end result? A slightly spicy, flavorful and loaded mini frittatas.
