Cooking With Mom: Omelets in a Muffin Tin.

Do your children enjoy helping you cook? Today I’m sharing a recipe that the whole family can make together (and customize to their liking) : 
Omelets In A Muffin Tin

Ingredients:

  • Eggs (beaten and seasoned)
  • Mix Ins (of your choice): chopped/shredded veggies, shredded cheese, cooked meat

We used what we had on hand: bacon, shredded carrots, sauteed onions, zucchini, sweet potatoes (previously cooked), tomatoes, green onions, Mexican blend cheese. 

Method: 

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Generously grease bottoms and sides of muffin tins.
  2. We’ve found it works best to fill the muffin tins with your mix ins first 
  3. Then fill (almost to the top . . . the will puff up slightly) with beaten eggs and stir. Bake for 15 – 25 minutes (time will vary based on the amount of mix ins) until eggs are cooked through. I usually put them under the broiler for the last 1-2 minutes to brown the tops slightly.  
  4. Place pan on cooling rack for a few minutes before removing. Eat warm or cold, at home or on the go. The kids like eating these because they don’t have to use a fork. I like when they eat them because it’s a simple way to sneak in a little more veggies and protein into our morning meal.
