Mornings get more hectic when school is in session. Make things a little less stressful by having breakfast already done with these make-ahead, grab-and-go ideas.

1/3 cup shredded cheese


How to Make Them:

Heat oven to 350F and grease a muffin tin. In a bowl, whisk together eggs and cream, then add remaining ingredients and mix well. Pour batter into muffin tin, to about ¾ full. Bake 18-20 minutes. Cool completely before removing frittatas with a butter knife.
