Make-Ahead Veggie Frittatas

Ingredients

  • 1 cup bell pepper, finely chopped
  • 1/2 cup onion, finely chopped

  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  •  6 eggs

  7. In a large bowl, whisk together eggs and milk. Stir in salt, pepper, and garlic.
  8. Evenly divide vegetable mixture, then egg mixture between muffin tins.
