Martha’s Hot Almond Spread

Vitamin E foods: Almonds

Prep. Time: 15 mins

Cook Time: 15 mins

Total Time: 30 mins

We all want to enjoy the benefits of vitamin E for hair. Getting those vitamin E benefits from foods that taste really good, makes it so much easier.

This recipe uses sliced almonds along with both cream cheese and shredded Swiss cheese – mmm!! It also calls for mayonnaise, onion, black pepper, and nutmeg. Combine all the other ingredients, then sprinkle almonds on top and set the dish to bake. It takes just 15 minutes in the oven with a stir at the midway point.

Sprinkle more almonds on top and serve as a spread (buttered round crackers are suggested.) However, I think all it needs is for you to grab a spoon and dig in!!

These are so cute and yummy-looking. Everyone is sure to tell you how wonderful they are – with thumbs up since they’ll be too busy eating! They are made like a regular frittata but miniaturized since you bake the mixture in a muffin tin.

Veggies you use include baby spinach, tomatoes, red pepper, green pepper, and yellow onion. Yep, vitamin E foods tend to be very colorful! You’ll also add mushrooms, garlic, and a bit of salt, to taste. Once those are all sautéed in the olive oil, you add whisked whole eggs and egg whites then pour into the muffin tin and bake.

(BTW – if you haven’t tried frittatas, you should! Think “omelet cake” and you’ll have an idea of how scrumptious a frittata is.)
