I posted a picture of my mini omelets today and a lot of you asked for the recipe so here it is :)! Ask and you shall receive…
I try to eat eggs every morning but sometimes if I have somewhere to be, I don’t have the time to get out the pan and make eggs for breakfast. This mini omelet recipe is awesome because I’m able to make them in advance and heat them up in the morning for me and the kids.
These mini omelets are super easy to make and tasted so good! My kids really loved them too! They are high in protein, packed with protein and veggies. What I love best is that you can make so many variations to change up the flavor.
Here’s what you’ll need:
- 8 eggs
- 1 cup of lowfat milk or milk alternative of your choice
- Salt and pepper to taste
- Additional fillings such as different veggies, meat if you want (I used a little deli ham but will make them with turkey bacon/sausage, turkey, etc), and your cheese of choice.
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Whisk your eggs and milk in a large bowl, and chop up your omelet add-ins while you wait for the oven to heat up. Add in desired amount of salt and pepper and mix in all of your toppings.
Fill your silicone baking cups or greased muffin pan with the egg mixture (don’t fill them all the way to the top). Bake for 25 minutes or until you insert a toothpick in and it comes out clean.
I didn’t have a large selection of veggies to add so I added an orange bell pepper and some broccoli to my mini omelets. This wouldn’t have been my first choice but I was pleasantly surprised with how good the pepper and broccoli tasted. It’s always a plus to get in some extra broccoli with the kids as well :). Here are my toppings…
These really were so so good and the best part is that they reheat really well, so it’s a great option for the busy mom on the go who doesn’t have time to make eggs all the time. Here is my finished product…yum.
My girl loves to eat…she approved of the mini omelets
I hope you enjoy these as much as we did!
