Merguez Frittata Muffins  - Perfect Picnic Food

Every few months I participate in a Food Blogger Recipe Swap. I was paired this month with the Cheerful Kitchen and these Taco Muffin Tin Eggs immediately caught my attention. I took her idea for these Frittata Muffins and went Middle Eastern with the flavor profile.

Merguez is a Middle Eastern lamb sausage flavored with cumin, coriander, paprika and other Middle Eastern flavors. I love the flavors in this sausage and buy them whenever I find them. Do you like Middle Eastern flavors as much as I do? How about experimenting more with the flavors of the region!
