3 Easy Breakfast Ideas:

Mini Muffin Tin Omelettes

Yields 24 mini muffin tin omelettes


  • 1 cup broccoli florets
  • 1 small red pepper
  • 5 large eggs
  • ¼ cup half and half cream
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese, plus 3 tbsp more for sprinkling


  1. Preheat oven to 400 F. Lightly grease two mini muffin tins with butter and set aside.
  2. Steam broccoli until bright green and tender-crisp, about 2 to 3 minutes. Drain well and cool slightly. Chop into small pieces. Finely dice red pepper. Spoon a small amount of both the broccoli and red pepper into the bottom of each mini muffin mould.
  3. In a large bowl, whisk eggs until fluffy. Pour in cream and continue to whisk until light and well combined. Whisk in 1 cup grated cheddar cheese and season with salt and pepper.
  4. Transfer egg mixture to a measuring cup with a spout for easy pouring. Pour about 1 to 2 tbsp of the egg mixture over the broccoli and red pepper, filling each almost to the top.
  5. Carefully transfer muffin tins to a baking sheet and place in the oven. Bake for about 15 minutes, or until puffed and golden. Remove from oven and let cool slightly on a wire rack before serving.
  6. These mini muffin tin omelettes are great served with toast and jam soldiers and fresh fruit salad with vanilla yogurt.
