Omelet Muffins

You over slept. Your child is refusing to put her clothes on. You lost your hairbrush. You can’t find that miniscule zip drive that has your presentation on it. These and many other reasons stand between you and breakfast every morning. When it seems like Murphy has set up shop at your house just pull a couple of these omelet muffins out of the fridge, pop them into the toaster oven, pour yourself a glass of raw milk and have a delicious, nutritious breakfast in spite of your frantic morning. These are also good for lunches and more leisurely mornings.

Recipe for omelet muffins:

Ingredients:

10 extra large pastured chicken eggs or 8 duck eggs

2 tablespoons grass fed milk (we prefer raw)

1 cup veggies of your choice: we like peas, steamed carrots and caramelized onions but you can experiment here.

*Optional: 1/2 cup diced pre-cooked meat of your choice: roast chicken, ham, sausage, bacon, salmon and turkey will all work well.

1 ounce grated grass fed cheese

To prepare:

Preheat oven to 350* F

Place muffin tin liners in pan: I suggest the brand “If You Care” as they are free of dyes and chlorine and will not stick to your eggs so you get to enjoy your entire muffin without also eating paper.

Prepare veggies: dice each vegetable, if using carrots or onions be sure to steam the carrots and caramelize the onions first.

Whisk together eggs and milk, stir in cheese, vegetables and meat if using.

Pour mixture into muffin liners and bake for 15-20 minutes (until muffin omelets are baked through, test with a toothpick, should come out clean when done). Pour mixture until cups are halfway filled.

As you can see I ran out of my mixture on this one so I ended up making some baked eggs as well. Delicious! Just crack an egg into a muffin liner and bake along with the muffins.

 

 

Makes about two dozen muffin omelets or 12 servings total.

 

These can be frozen in a plastic freezer bag for up to 4 months or stored in the fridge for up to two days. If storing in plastic wait until the muffins have completely cooled before putting in the bags.
