    One of the most useful of spices for both sweet and savoury


  1. Heat oven to 180C/160C fan/gas 4. Lightly grease a 6-hole muffin tin and line with squares of baking parchment to act as muffin cases (greasing the tin first will help to hold the parchment in place).

  2. Put the spinach in a colander in the sink and pour over a kettle of boiling water, then leave to drain. When cool enough to handle, squeeze as much liquid as you can from the spinach, then roughly chop.

  3. Beat the eggs and season well. Marble through the spinach, cottage cheese, spring onions, dill and a generous grating of nutmeg. Divide the mixture between the muffin cases. Bake for 18-20 mins or until just set. Leave to cool a little before removing from the tin. These will keep in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 2 days.

Took 30 minutes with my oven on 6. Cheesy and watery

I am confused because these are called "mini" and described as "tiny"; but the pan used is a regular 6-cup one. Does this recipe make only six minis?

I'm a little confused. These are called "mini" and described as "tiny," but they are made in a regular muffin tin? Or do they really make only six mini-muffin-size frittatas?

These are nice but took a lot longer than the time suggested (more like 25 minutes). Could be my oven though!

According to the symbol on the magazine (July 2013) they are not suitable for freezing.
