Springtime is here and these Mini Frittatas in a Jar with Asparagus & Pancetta recipe are a delicious idea for your Easter brunch or Mother’s Day brunch.
Can you believe it’s just over 2 weeks until Easter? I knew it was coming, but I didn’t realize it was so soon.
I usually like to decorate about a month before any given holiday, but I’ve been so slow with Easter. David is the designated get-down-the-holiday-stuff person and he brought me in one box today so I could put a few things up. But, when I opened the box, most of the space was filled with Easter baskets. EIGHT of them. Please tell me why we have 8 Easter baskets? We have 4 kids and we put together 4 baskets each year. I can’t even remember when I bought them.
While I might not be the best at getting the holiday decorations up on time, one thing I’ve got covered is the holiday menu planning. Our Easter menu is pretty well set, and ohhhh yesss…I can’t wait! Makes me hungry just thinking about it.
While most of my cooking on Easter Sunday will be for dinner, I do have a few things planned to enjoy for brunch after the kids hunt their Easter eggs. Today I’m sharing one of them: Mini Frittatas in a Jar with Asparagus & Pancetta. I think these frittatas are so perfect for Easter brunch — not only do the ingredients say Spring, but they are baked AND served right in the jars which are so much more fun than eating something on a plate (not to mention: less to clean up). Oh, and best thing yet — the name! FRITTATA! If I had a favorite word, frittata would probably definitely be one of my top favorites.
These frittatas are made with eggs, of course, and several other delicious ingredients: asparagus, diced pancetta, parmesan cheese, and breadcrumbs.
The eggs are beaten and Parmesan cheese is added to them.
Breadcrumbs are combined in a bowl with some melted butter and pressed into the bottom of each 4 ounce canning jar. Then, egg mixture is poured in each, and finally they are topped with some of the asparagus and pancetta.
They are baked in the oven and when they are finished, you’ll have your cute, little puffy frittata! Won’t those be fun to eat on Easter morning?
Here’s the complete recipe for you to print. If you aren’t ready to make it yet, but want to save it for later, I would recommend pinning it to one of your Pinterest boards by clicking this red “Pin It” button:Print
