Do you like having breakfast for dinner? We sure do. Freezer Friendly Egg Muffin Baked Omelette is perfect for breakfast, brunch or dinner.
There are never too many ways to enjoy an egg. Great to whip up for a single meal, or to feed a crowd. We always have hard boiled eggs in the fridge for a quick breakfast or snack.
Life is so busy…ALL THE TIME. There are never enough hours in the day it seems to get everything done. Cooking nutritious meals can be a challenge.
COOK ONCE EAT MORE THAN ONCE
I am all about batch cooking. When life gets hectic, it is always nice to know I can pull something out of the freezer for dinner. Takeout is expensive, and usually not so nutritious either.
You know what I’m talking about. Those days when you have to be in 3 places at once. You have to take the kids to hockey, dancing, piano lessons, you have a dentist appointment…and oh yeah, you need go buy a birthday gift for the party on the weekend. Sound familiar?
Some recipes are so easy to double up. Why not make extra to tuck away for another day. Muffins, soups, stews, and these Freezer Friendly Egg Muffin Baked Omelettes are perfect to batch cook. I can’t tell you how many times my “freezer meals” have saved the day.
These are just like having an omelette, but in muffin form. You can add your favourite fillings and cheese, bake and enjoy. However you like your omelette, you can incorporate into these egg muffins.
In these, I used chicken sausage, onion, red pepper and cheese. Fry the sausage in a skillet. You can drain any excess fat from the pan. Add some chopped onion and peppers.
Once that is cooked, set it aside. In a measuring cup crack some eggs and whisk. Add some milk (or even cream) if you like, totally up to you.
Generously spray your muffin tin to prevent sticking. Depending on the size of tin you use (mine was a 12 cup), add about 1/4 meat mixture to each cup. Top with cheese, pour in some egg mixture and bake.
Serve these alongside some hash browns, or even a salad. Great for little hands to hold onto, and perfect to feed a crowd. Pop leftovers into a freezer container. Easily reheat in the oven or microwave for a meal or two on another day.
HOW DO YOU LIKE YOUR EGGS?
Eggs are so versatile, and you can make them so many ways. In our house, we like eggs all ways. Our favourite way is bacon and eggs on the BBQ. Yup I can’t wait for grilling season to start. Weekend brunch is so good, and hubby does the cooking!!
Devilled eggs always are a hit. The Green Devil is a favourite party appetizer. Not only do they look neat, the combination of egg and avocado is delicious.
How do you hard boil eggs? Seriously there are so many variations for this simple task it makes it seem complicated. My favourite way is the cold water method.
When you feel like breakfast for dinner, Freezer Friendly Egg Muffin Baked Omelette is a great healthy choice. You might be lucky enough to have leftovers for breakfast in the morning.
