Preheat oven to 375°F (190°C). Butter mini (about 4 inches/10 cm) foil or metal pie plates and place on a baking sheet.

In a bowl, whisk together flour, basil, pepper and milk; add eggs and whisk until frothy. Stir in half of the Canadian Mozzarella or Cheddar cheese. Pour into prepared pie plates.

Bake for about 10 min or until almost set. Arrange tomatoes on top, cut side up, and sprinkle with remaining cheese. Bake for about 5 min or until cheese is melted and eggs are puffed and set.


Mini pie plates are available at kitchenware or house wares stores and foil versions are available at supermarkets. If you don’t have mini pie plates, you can use 3/4-cup (175 mL) ramekins and increase the baking time to 15 minutes before adding tomatoes and remaining cheese.

You can serve these frittatas hot or let cool completely, cover and refrigerate for up to 2 days and serve cold.
