Today I am sharing my recipe for omelet muffins! Of course omelets for breakfast are awesome. But mornings can be hectic. That is why I find it handy to have a few time-saving tricks up my sleeve.
These omelet muffins are easy to make, full of protein and they are just as good reheated in the microwave for a quick grab-and-go healthy breakfast. I know a lot of us do food prep at the beginning of the week, and these would be a great candidate for that.
This recipe is really more about the method than the ingredients. You can change it up a million different ways by changing up the veggies, or by changing out what type of cheese you use.
Eggs and egg whites make a great “blank slate” and you can layer in flavors to go in many different directions. You can even tailor them to your own specific eating preferences – you can leave off the meat for a great vegetarian option. Or you could make these with just egg whites to go even lower in points. The options are endless!
You can use a traditional muffin tin to make these, or you can use these cute silicon muffin cups (<- Amazon affiliate link, thank you!) like I did!
I love these. They are nonstick, so you don’t have to worry about spraying anything. Plus they are very “green,” i.e. no waste. Win/win!
