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.
Eggs are so nutritious, we enjoy them ALL day long. I always have hard-boiled eggs in the fridge for a quick snack.

Best Way To Make An Omelette
In my opinion, the classic French method is king. Did you see that movie (affiliate)*The Hundred-Foot Journey with Helen Mirren? One of my favourite movies by far. You will know what I am talking about when you watch it.
If I am just cooking an omelette for 1 or 2 people, I will use the classic method. However, if I am cooking for a crowd, these egg muffin baked omelettes are the way to go.
I like to use (affiliate)*non-stick muffin tins for this recipe. I would recommend using some cooking spray as well, as they tend to stick otherwise. You can also use (affiliate)*silicone muffin tins.
How To Bake Muffin Tin Omelettes
- Get your pans ready.
- Preheat your oven.
- 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.
- Depending on the size of tin you use (mine was a 12 cup), add about 1/4 cup meat mixture to each cup.
- Top with cheese, pour in some egg mixture and bake.
These egg muffin omelettes puff up so nicely. They look great on a platter for the brunch crowd.
BONUS POINTS you can freeze these baked egg omelettes! A true time-saver.
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 very nutritious either.
I pop these into freezer containers. Reheating these baked frozen omelets is so much better than takeout. Pop them in the microwave, and they are ready to eat in a minute or so.
Serve these alongside some hash browns, or even a salad. Great for little hands to hold onto. They would be great for dinner too.
Omelete cups for the win. Easy to make. Easy to freeze. Easy to customize. Easy to eat!
