Easy Omelette Muffins

This is a really quick and easy recipe to make and also a great way to get some veggies into your kids.  Getting my girls to eat all their veggies can be a bit of a chore sometimes, my eldest in particular won’t eat much more then broccoli, carrot and cucumber.  This muffin takes the idea of an omelette and puts it in muffin form, which is good if you aren’t good at making traditional omelettes and because of the cheese the veggies aren’t really that noticeable.

The ingredients can be whatever veggies you have on hand.  This time around I used cauliflower and spinach, but I’ve also used peppers. broccoli and asparagus.  Really you can put in whatever you want.

For the three little ones and myself I used 5 eggs (which made 6 muffins).  Decide what veggies you are using and dice them pretty small, you will need 1-2 tablespoons of veggies per muffin cup.  Grate some cheese if desired, you will need 1-2 tablespoons per cup as well.  Scramble the eggs and add any spices you wish, I stuck with salt and pepper but some fine herbs would be delicious too.  If you’re using metal trays I imagine you should grease them, I use silicone.  Spoon an even amount of eggs into each cup and then add the toppings and stir.

Place the muffin tray in an oven at 350 and bake for about 25 minutes, I would check periodically after 15 minutes with a toothpick to ensure they don’t get overdone.

Toss them on a plate with some toast or more veggie slices for a quick, nutritious, kid friendly lunch.
