Make an Arugula-Swiss Frittata Egg Bake in Your Air Fryer
You'll need about 10 minutes plus a little whisking time to make this easy, filling frittata--or egg bake, if you prefer a simpler name. The arugula gives a bit of bitter-spicy contrast to the nutty-sweet Swiss cheese, and a little Parmesan cheese gives the egg bakes more flavor and saltiness (without adding more salt). The egg bakes are simple to do and make a special breakfast. The egg bakes also are great for a light lunch or dinner with a salad and some bread. Why use the air fryer? The air fryer is faster than using the conventional oven, and the frittata egg bakes turn golden brown in minutes. You also can avoid heating up the large oven, and clean up of the cooking dishes is easy. Enjoy!
Arugula-Swiss Frittata Egg Bakes -- Makes 2
2 large eggs
1/4 cup of milk
2-3 teaspoons grated Parmesan cheese
1/2 teaspoon of onion powder
1 teaspoon of Dijon mustard
1/8 teaspoon of pepper
1/8 teaspoon of salt (optional--the Parmesan is pretty salty, so I usually omit salt)
2 slices of Swiss cheese (or use a few tablespoons of shredded Swiss)
1/2 cup of arugula
Spritz two mini pie tins or one-cup ramekins with non-stick cooking spray. In a small bowl or measure whisk together well the eggs, milk, Parmesan, onion powder, mustard, pepper, and salt (if you're using it). Divide the arugula between the two tins/ramekins and tear the cheese slices into bits. Divide half of the bits between the two tins/ ramekins, placing the cheese on top of the arugula. Divide the egg mixture between the tins/ramekins. Divide the remaining cheese bits between the two ramekins, placing the cheese on top of the egg mixture. Press the cheese into the egg mixture a little with your fingers or the back of a spoon. Place the filled tins/ramekins in your air fryer basket, put the basket into the air fryer, and air fry the frittata egg bakes at 360 degrees for five minutes. Reduce the heat to 320 degrees and continue cooking the frittata egg bakes for another five minutes or until puffed, golden brown, and mostly set. The frittata egg bakes will deflate a little as they sit but will still taste great!
