Mini Pea and Feta Frittatas for Babies and Toddlers

My little one has had a recent aversion to peas.  Used to love them, perhaps he had them too often.  Anyway, my view is always fussiness gets reinforced by parents.  Stop offering and you're guaranteed your child won't eat that item, keep offering and there's a chance they will.  But there's no reason not to mix it up, offer the item as part of a food like this, cut it up differently (which worked with strawberries here) or cook it differently (a great idea is roasting rather than boiling root vegetables.)

So this was the result.  Mummy liked a lot.  Wee man was ok about it all, perhaps he's getting wise to my ways but still he polished off a couple with some green beans.




Pea and Feta Mini Frittatas - Makes Approx 12, easily serves an adult and toddler

Ingredients

85g Frozen small (petit pois) peas
85g Feta, cubed / crumbled
4 eggs
Oil for greasing the pan

Method

Preheat the oven to 200oC / 400F.

Mix the peas, feta and eggs together.  Use a brush to oil the wells of a mini muffin tin, make sure you also grease the sides.

Put the mix in each well.  Bake for approx 15 minutes or until no longer wobbly.  Serve with vegetables.

  3. These look great! I assume you couldn't freeze them, so how long would they keep for?

    1. I'd serve them warm or allow to cool and then keep in a fridge serving the same day.
