In a perfect world, we?d all sit down every morning to a leisurely, healthy breakfast. In the real world, however, we?ve all done our share of eating breakfast in our cars, on the bus or at our work desk. Sometimes, where you eat the breakfast you grabbed on your way out the door can?t be helped. What can be helped, however, is what you eat. A grab-and-go breakfast is exactly what Amy Schoenherr had in mind when she submitted her recipe for Omelet Muffins to the Primal Cookbook Challenge [1]. This easy and clever variation of a regular old omelet can be made in batches of a half-dozen or more and eaten throughout the week. Amy?s muffins, made almost entirely from eggs [2], are little powerhouses of protein, fat, nutrients and flavor. Mixing in a little water and mayonnaise keeps the eggs fluffy and moist while they bake. Other than that, what you mix in for added flavor is up to you. Anything you love adding to an omelet ? diced vegetables, meat, and some cheese if you?re so inclined ? you can add to this recipe to create your own personal omelet muffin. Keep in mind that while omelet muffins are pretty darn perfect for breakfast on the go, they?d also be great for a weekend brunch. Double the recipe and make a dozen. Then, make time to sit down with family or friends and enjoy the type of long, leisurely breakfast that?s so hard to come during the week.

Recipe Ingredients for Omelet Muffins

6 eggs
1/2 cup ham or other meat, cut or crumbled
1/2 cup mixed vegetables, diced
1/4 tsp salt
1/8 tsp ground pepper
1/8 cup mayonnaise
1/8 cup water

Recipe Directions for Omelet Muffins

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Generously grease 6 muffin tins with butter or coconut oil or for easier removal line with paper baking cups. The baking cups also help the muffins hold their shape.

  2. In a bowl, beat the eggs. Add meat, vegetables, salt, ground pepper, and any other ingredients and stir to combine.

  3. Spoon or scoop into the muffin cups.

  4. Bake for 18-20 minutes until a knife inserted into the center of an muffin/omelet comes out almost clean.

  5. The omelets will continue to cook for a minute or two after removed from the oven. Remove the omelets from the muffin cups and serve, or cool completely and store for another day.
