Crack six eggs into a bowl with a spout or a liquid measuring cup. I do a lot of mixing of small batches in liquid measuring cups because it is much more convenient for pouring and cleaning. I am all about making things easier!

Bake the frittatas in a 375 degree oven for about 15 minutes or until the eggs are set and the cheese is melted and lightly browned. I laughed when I pulled these out of the oven because they had puffed up so much!
