Cool & Creative Ways to Use Your Muffin Tins!

Baked Omelets

on June 14, 2012

As promised here is your muffin tin breakfast recipe for this weekend! ๐Ÿ™‚ It comes to us from The Family Kitchen on

This is a quick and easy breakfast that everyone in the family will agree on because they can make it their own. It’s also aย  perfect recipe to let the kids help out in the kitchen too! Mine get a kick out of adding their own ingredients ๐Ÿ™‚ And the bigger ones are now old enough to cut & chop things… so I’m a nervous wreck for a minute but they feel all grown up, lol! It’s nice having the extra hands though, makes it more fun for me because I get to enjoy the time spent together before they all run out the door to their various activities.

The way we like it in my house most often is ham & cheese but on occasion we like to spice it up a bit and throw in some veggies. Here are some other variations from the website: mushrooms, spinach, minced onions, and diced bell peppers. You can also substitute mozzarella for the cheddar. Basically whatever you have in the fridge, get creative! ๐Ÿ˜‰ But if you like to play it safe here’s the standard ham & cheese…

Baked Ham & Cheese Omelets

{makes 12 egg cups}

What youโ€™ll need:
6 slices of bread โ€“ divided
5 slices of honey ham โ€“ torn into bite size pieces
1 cup cheddar cheese โ€“ grated
7 eggs โ€“ beaten
1 1/2 cups milk

What to do:
1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Spray your 12 capacity muffin tin with cooking spray.

2. Equally divide THREE slices of bread and place into muffin tins. Equally distribute ham pieces into the muffin tins. Sprinkle equal amounts of cheese onto each. Top each with remaining THREE slices of bread

3. Into a small bowl, add eggs, milk. Whisk to combine. Season with salt and pepper. Pour egg mixture evenly over each muffin cup.

4. Bake for approximately 20-25 minutes or until eggs are cooked through. Allow egg cups to cool slightly before serving.

TIP: You could even make this the night before, cover it with plastic wrap and refrigerate until youโ€™re ready to bake.

Super simple right?! So now you have no excuses and just to be sure I’ll share another great breakfast recipe tomorrow I think. Because I know once you make this one you’ll want to do it again the next day! ๐Ÿ˜‰
