Omelet Muffins

Despite all of those "it's the most important meal of the day" warnings, I've never been much of a breakfast eater (and we already know that I'm definitely not much of a cook). Anything that is tasty and that makes lots of portions at once is a huge plus in my book, which is why I'm in love with these omelet muffins.

Since I'm never too hungry in the morning, each one is a perfect portion for a non-breakfast eater like me. Best of all, this recipe makes six muffins at once so I typically whip up a batch on Sunday morning, eat one right out of the oven, and refrigerate the rest for quick breakfasts that I can eat on the go or bring into the office throughout the week.

I whisk up six eggs... 

...then add my fillings to the muffin tin (for this batch, I used spinach and shredded cheese, but feel free to experiment with different varieties).

Pour in the egg batter...

...then bake for 18 minutes. Voila, omelet muffins!

Omelet Muffins

Ingredients (for six servings)
* 6 eggs
* Mix-in fillings of your choice (some great options include shredded cheese, spinach, ham, bacon, onions, tomatoes, carrots, mushrooms)
* Salt and pepper

1) Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.

2) Beat the eggs and season with salt and pepper.

3) After greasing the muffin pan, add the mix-ins to each cup.

4) Fill the muffin cups with the egg mixture (leaving a bit of space on top, since they will expand while in the oven).

5) Bake for approximately 18 minutes (insert a toothpick on top - when it comes out mainly clean, the omelet muffins are finished).

Once the muffins are cool, pop them out of the tray and wrap them up so that you can grab one to-go on your way to work each morning. They really heat up well in the microwave and taste great, I promise!

What's your favorite quick breakfast for a busy morning?
