Cheesy Bacon Cauliflower mini frittata bites

Cheesy Bacon and Cauliflower frittata mini bites

These cheesy bacon cauliflower  frittata bites pack in some veg but are still less than 1g carbs per portion.  These taste just like a quiche without the pastry crust and are super quick to whip up a batch to keep in the fridge for a quick protein packed low carb breakfast, packed lunch or a portable snack.  These are equally delicious served warm or straight from the fridge or lunch box.

To cook use a mini or standard size silicon muffin tin placed on a baking tray for stability.  These tend to stick in a metal tin so it is well worth investing a few pennies in the silicon version (and they are easier to wash up too!)
