These baked omelet muffins are an easy and portable breakfast. They are loaded with your favorite omelet fillings and made into bite-sized muffin form.
When I am trying to eat healthy, I focus a lot on breakfast. Because what I eat first thing in the morning definitely sets the tone for the rest of the day. If I start off the morning eating something healthy, I’m more likely to make good decisions the rest of the day.
If I start the morning even with a tiny cheat, then it just snowballs into several more cheats throughout the day.
On a related note, my mom was telling me about a weight loss diet she started doing where the first thing she eats in the morning has to be protein. Then she can eat normally for the rest of the day. Has anyone heard or tried this diet? I haven’t tried it myself but it seems to be working for her.
These omelet muffins are similar to my mini frittatas and are a great way to start your morning. The egg muffins are filled with omelet ingredients like cheese, bell peppers, spinach and scallions. You can also add ham or bacon too.
I like to make a large batch of these and then freeze and store them.
HOW TO KEEP THE OMELET MUFFINS FLUFFY
To make these egg muffins fluffy, I add a little bit of milk to the whisked eggs. I usually do this when I’m making scrambled eggs too.
I used skim milk to keep the calorie and fat content low, but if you want them even fluffier and don’t care about the calories, you can use half & half. If you want a lighter version just out my Egg White Muffins.
OMELET MUFFINS RECIPE
- 8 large eggs
- 1/2 cup milk I use skim or low fat, but whole milk also works
- 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
- 1 cup bell peppers diced (I used a mix of red, orange and green)
- 1/2 cup baby spinach roughly chopped
- 1/4 tsp salt
- 2 scallions thinly sliced
- Preheat oven to 350°F. Grease the interior of a nonstick muffin pan.
- In a medium bowl, add eggs and milk. Whisk until uniform. Stir in cheese, bell peppers, spinach, salt, scallions and any other omelet ingredients you are adding.
- Scoop batter into muffin tin, filling them almost to the rim. You should have enough batter for 12 muffins.
- Bake for about 20-25 minutes, or until eggs are cooked. The muffins will initially be very puffy, but will sink back down when they cool.
- Use a thin spatula to loosen edges of muffins to remove them from the pan. Eat while warm. Store uneaten muffins in fridge or freezer.
