Mini Cupcake Omelets!
So, I am 99.95% sure that my heater is blowing out cold air. My apartment is SO cold!! Currently, I am cuddled up in a huge sweatshirt and blanket and am still chilly. The worst part, my landlord isn’t answering his phone (nooooo!)
When it comes to the cold, I’m not the biggest fan. I grew up in California so I definitely prefer the heat.
I really love omelets. They’re easy, filling, and so versatile. They’re also perfect to warm me up in this ice-chest of a house!
Making mini “cupcake” omelets is my new obsession. I bake a lot of them at a time, so that way, I can refrigerate them or freeze them, and I have breakfast and snacks all week! These cute little cupcakes only have 64 calories in them, as well. Can’t beat it!
The first thing you need to do is decide what you want in your omelets. For these, I chose to use:
*3 large eggs *6 egg whites *1 cup diced onion *1 cup diced green bell pepper *1 ½ diced low-fat turkey sausage *1 cup diced fresh spinach *2 jalapeño string cheese *dash of salt and pepper*
Preheat oven to 350!
Slice up your ingredients!
You want to cut up the ingredients into small, bite size pieces.
In a big bowl, mix your eggs. I used 3 large eggs and 6 egg whites. This was perfect to make 12 cupcake omelets.
Grease your muffin pan REALLY well!
First, fill the bottom of the the pan to be about 1/5 full of the egg mixture and put a dash of pepper on top.
Forgive the poor appearance of these muffin pans! I need new ones. 🙂
Next, fill with your ingredients! I did onion, green pepper, jalapeño string cheese, low-fat turkey sausage, and fresh spinach!
Once you layer all the ingredients, place on the rest of the egg mixture!
Sprinkle a little bit of salt and pepper on the top!
Bake at 350 for about 20 minutes.
Once they are fully cooked, you can eat them right away, refrigerate them (if you’re going to eat them within the next few days), or freeze them (just pop them in the microwave for about a minute!
These little cupcake omelets are so cute and easy to make.
Have fun experimenting with many ingredients!
