By now you will have realized that my mind is constantly in a struggle to determine what to have for breakfast.  Should I go with the traditional egg option, such as egg muffins, omelettes, my combination of an omelette and a frittata … or should I go with my favorite granola like this, this or this?  Or should I go with pancakes – either with flour or without?  And then there’s the whole pile of sweet potato options such as my sweet potato hash, sweet potato toast, or sweet potato chia pudding.  Hmmm … maybe I should just come up with something different!

As you may know, I’m part of a Recipe Swap club, where each month we are assigned another food blogger to collaborate with and make one of their recipes, and put the experience on our blog.  In September I was assigned Ali from Fix Me a Little Lunch and I made her really yummy samosa baked potatoes.  But I was looking through all her recipes and this one also caught my eye.  It turned out that in my eagerness to make the samosa baked potatoes, I actually baked too many potatoes, so I had a baked potato just waiting, looking at me, wanting to be used in a new recipe.  And her Asparagus Potato Frittata Bites turned out to be just the thing.

Now of course I had to adapt it, because I just can’t make a recipe as it is written.  Maybe that’s a character flaw?  Anyway, I had some prosciutto in the fridge, leftover from my cashew chicken parmigiana (see how I’m just using up a whole pile of ingredients in this recipe?), and I thought I’d try making these frittata bites (or muffins if you wish) wrapped in prosciutto.  And I changed the mozzarella cheese to nutritional yeast because of my special snowflake, lactose intolerant, stomach.

I have to tell you all – these prosciutto wrapped frittata bites are awesome.  I had them warm out of the oven for dinner.  I had them cold for breakfast.  I had them for lunch.  These are seriously a versatile dish – and great for using leftovers!  And they were different enough to everything else I’ve linked above, that it was a win-win situation all around!  Thanks Ali for inspiring me to make another one of your recipes!  And now, you all can make these as well!
