Sweet Potato and Spinach Mini Frittatas

Here is my secret for how to  wow people with something that is ridiculously and embarrassingly simple. Two steps: 1) change the name to something fancy 2) make it in mini. And with that I introduce to you the mini frittata which essentially for all that it is adorable is just a glorified omelet! They are sooo easy to make and  so easy to customize, ANY vegetable or ANY cheese can be thrown in and you have just created a frittata masterpiece. I baked these in mini muffin cups that were WELL sprayed with cooking spray and the result were these cute little hand-held portable omelets that are just perfect for a dairy party especially since you can make them in advance. Also, unlike omelets which to me have to be served hot, Frittatas can be served room temperature which just adds to the appeal of making them.

8 eggs
3/4 cups half and half (or milk)
one small sweet potato, diced small
1/2 cup chopped leaf spinach
1/3 cup feta cheese, cubed small
1/4 cup parmesan, grated
Salt, pepper to taste
1 tsp garlic powder
2 tsp Mrs. Dash

Whisk the eggs and milk together well and mix in the rest of the ingredients. Pour into well sprayed muffin cups and bake at 350 for about 20 minutes or until they are slightly golden.
