This is a wonderful treat with easy advance preparation. An elegant breakfast to serve over- night guests. Prep time includes 2 hours chill time. This is a Texas recipe - oranges from the valley, not to mention all the Texas pecan trees. Southwestern U.S.
Bake these bite-sized frittatas in a miniature muffin pan. They taste great hot or at room temperature, so you can make them in advance. You can use 4 large eggs in place of the egg whites, egg whites just make it lower in fat.
I love the name of these and the taste is even better! These muffins have a little bit of everything in them, carrot, apple, cococnut, nuts, raisins, and more! SO YUMMY! I usually make a double batch and freeze the extras.
These are mouthwatering. Make plenty for a weekend breakfast. It's worth the effort! They freeze well, too, and can be heated in the oven at 350 for about 12 - 14 minutes, or in the microwave for a few seconds if thawed (about 1 1/2 minutes if frozen). Very convenient for a grab and go breakfast.
This recipe is from Executive Chef Joshua Schwartz of The French Laundry in Yountville, California; one of the best restaurants in the United States (voted #3 in the world). I could not find tomato jam the first time I made the recipe and used seedless raspberry jam, it was outstanding. When I happened upon a jar of tomato jam at a specialty store, I remembered this recipe and purchased it….again outstanding! I guess there is a reason he is one of the top chefs in the world. Note: Adjust milk as needed as different types of bread absorb more or less. I start out with half the mixture and add as needed.
