Ingredients:

  • 8 large eggs
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon paprika
  • 1/4 cup diced bell peppers (any color)
  • 1/4 cup diced onions
  • 1/4 cup diced tomatoes
  • 1/4 cup diced ham or bacon (optional)
  • 1/4 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • Cooking spray

Instructions:

  1. Preheat the Oven: Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C) and grease a 12-cup muffin tin with cooking spray.
  2. Whisk Eggs: In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the eggs, milk, salt, black pepper, and paprika until well combined. This forms the base for your omelet egg muffins.
  3. Prepare Fillings: Dice the bell peppers, onions, tomatoes, and any optional ingredients like ham or bacon.
  4. Add Fillings: Distribute the diced vegetables and optional ingredients evenly among the greased muffin cups.
  5. Pour Egg Mixture: Carefully pour the egg mixture over the fillings in each muffin cup, filling them about 2/3 of the way full.
  6. Add Cheese: Sprinkle shredded cheddar cheese on top of each muffin cup.
  7. Bake: Place the muffin tin in the preheated oven and bake for approximately 15-20 minutes or until the omelet egg muffins are set and slightly golden on top. You can check for doneness by inserting a toothpick into the center of a muffin – it should come out clean when they are ready.
  8. Cool and Serve: Allow the muffins to cool in the tin for a few minutes before using a butter knife to gently loosen the edges and remove them. Serve warm, and enjoy!

Variations:

  1. Vegetarian Omelet Muffins: Omit the ham or bacon and add more vegetables like spinach, mushrooms, or zucchini.
  2. Spicy Omelet Muffins: Add a dash of hot sauce or diced jalapeños for a spicy kick.
  3. Dairy-Free Option: Substitute dairy-free milk and cheese alternatives for a lactose-free version.
  4. Low-Carb Version: Skip the milk for fewer carbs, and use non-starchy vegetables for fillings.
  5. Herb and Spice Infusion: Experiment with herbs and spices like chives, basil, thyme, or smoked paprika for extra flavor.

These Omelet Egg Muffins are a versatile, nutritious, and portable breakfast option. You can make them ahead of time, store them in the refrigerator, and reheat for a quick and satisfying morning meal.
