Spanakopita frittatas

I fancied spanakopita tonight. It was so damn tasty when I made it earlier this year that I knew it wouldn’t be too long before I tried it again, with added pine nuts as noted previously. However – I’m off ‘bad’ food this week so pastry is out of the question. The solution is egg shaped- mini frittatas, as inspired by this Lattes and Leggings post featuring mini (so cute!) frittatas.

I found the filling quite delicious. The dill really comes through and it’s really pleasant to come across the semi soft crunch of a pine nut every so often.

This recipe is a guide as the amount of filling versus amount of egg is down to personal preference. These were quite filling heavy, the way I like them!
