100g feta cheese, crumbled
1/4 cup finely grated parmesan cheese

9 mini roma tomatoes, halved lengthways

Preheat oven to 180 degrees. Grease six-hole Texas muffin pan; line bases with baking paper

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

A frittata is a type of Italian omelette that frequently features fillings such as meats, cheeses, and vegetables. Like a traditional French omelette, a frittata is prepared in a skillet. However, whereas an omelette is cooked on a stovetop and served folded, a frittata is first partially cooked on a stovetop but then broiled (grilled) to finish and served open-faced.

This is quite an interesting contrast to the eggs I have been baking in my ramekins which if I am not wrong are french in technique. The cream and the eggs are separate and in layers whereas for the frittata, the cream is mixed well with the eggs. 
Oh and I noticed that for the frittata, the mixture does rise a bit when the baking is done.
