These mini frittatas are packed full of flavour and high in protein as well as being low in carbs. Although they sound quite complicated to make, I promise you they couldn’t be easier. I really enjoy them hot with a salad as a simple lunch but my partner also loves to take them in a Tupperware to work and assures me they are just as good cold as they are hot. If you are veggie you can always leave out the chorizo/bacon and perhaps add a little low fat cheese for flavour? Either way, once you give these a try they will become a staple in your weekly menu!
