HOW TO MAKE AN EGG MUFFIN BAKED OMELETTE
For this egg muffin baked omelette recipe, 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.
These egg muffin omelettes puff up so nicely. Baking eggs in the oven is a fun and delicious way to enjoy them.
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, but the combination of egg and avocado is also 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 and delicious choice. You might be lucky enough to have leftovers for breakfast in the morning.
