Omelet Breakfast Bites

egg omelet recipe

I love a good egg omelet recipe, but making them can be a pain, especially if you are making them for the entire family. Unless you have 4 omelet pans and 4 burners going at once, chances are everyone is going to start eating their omelet and be done before mom has a chance to make hers! That’s one of the reasons that I love my oven baked omelet recipe and the reason I love these omelet bites – everything is done at the same time and the entire family can sit down together and eat!

Like any other egg omelet recipe, you can customize these to your liking. This recipe just uses peppers, ham & cheese, but you can also add onions, tomatoes, sausage or really anything you like!

These can also be made and frozen fairly easily. To reheat them, just wrap in a paper towel and microwave for about a minute. They make for a perfect high-protein breakfast on the go!

When you are making them, be sure to grease or butter your muffin tins pretty generously. These tend to want to stick to the pan. You could also use cupcake/muffin liners, but if you do, make sure to add a few minutes to your cooking time.
