I have a little obsession with mini and individual size finger foods. Maybe because I am always trying to accommodate the four little hands that are reaching out to me all day long as I am standing at the cutting board.
Little individual size portions and bites are so cute, perfect for portion control and as I have said before make an adorable presentation. So when it came to whipping up a caprese frittata that is loaded with fresh basil, juicy tomatoes and creamy mozzarella I thought making them into little bites would be perfect for any occasion; plus any excuse to break out the mini muffin pan.
Not only do I have an obsession with mini foods, I have an obsession with the ingredients in a caprese salad. Seriously, basil, tomatoes and fresh mozzarella are considered staple ingredients in my kitchen. So with Mother’s Day right around the corner, I thought these little bites would be a great addition for brunch.
I have some fun recipes coming up that are made in a mini muffin pan so I thought it would be fun to giveaway to one lucky reader a mini muffin pan as well.
