Omelet Muffin Bar

A big Saturday morning breakfast is sort of a tradition here at The Hill Hangout. My peeps love their breakfast, and Saturday is the one day of the week that we have enough time to prepare a big meal before we get going for the day. Omelets are a big hit around here because everybody can get it their way. Jonathan takes his loaded with protein – 2 eggs with sausage, bacon, cheese. I like mine with veggies – mushrooms, green onions, red bell pepper, spinach. MA takes hers with sausage and cheese. PattiGirl is cheese only. The only downside to making omelets is that my electric skillet, which is my preferred method for making them, can only make one at a time. Hmm, what to do?

One day as I was perusing Pinterest, I came across the brilliant idea to make them in a muffin pan. Not sure why I hadn’t thought of it before, but it has saved me so much time and given us a way to get a nice, fresh omelet muffin on weekdays. If I’m doing them during the week, I usually chop ingredients the night before and have them ready to go to save time.

The best thing about omelet muffins is that you can pack them with tons of healthy, nutritious ingredients that Mom approves.

There are any number of combinations! I love a Greek omelet with black olives, feta, red onions, and parsley. My girls enjoy the pizza style with pepperoni and mozzarella (and I throw in a sun-dried tomato or two). The ham, broccoli, and cheddar combo makes a great quiche-like dinner muffin. Use your imagination!

Put the veggie/meat/cheese ingredients in your muffin cup (which you’ve sprayed with cooking spray) and add one scrambled egg per cup.

Bake them on 375-400 degrees for 15-20 minutes or until the egg is firmly done in the center. Serve with a side of fruit and piece of toast or biscuit and you’re good to go.

I’d love to hear which combinations you’d make using the ingredients above? Any other ingredients you’d recommend? Please discuss.
