Mini Veggie Omelets

I learned about this awesome way to make eggs from a friend on Instagram. They are SO GOOD, easy to make, and great on the go!

What you will need:

  • Any veggies that you like. I used mushrooms, red onions, green peppers, and spinach. 
  • Spices of your choice. I used salt, pepper, and cayenne pepper. 
  • Eggs
  • Feta Cheese (optional)
  • Coconut or Olive Oil
  • Non Stick Spray
  • Muffin/Cupcake Baking Tray

First you will want to chop up all the veggies with the exception of the spinach.

Then you need to sauté the the veggies in a skillet pan with either the coconut oil or the olive oil. As far as spicing the veggies I used salt, pepper, and cayenne pepper. While you are doing this start pre-heating your oven to 350 degrees.

Once the veggies are almost done you can add the spinach. The spinach cooks down very quickly so you want to save it until the very end.

Next you will want to spray the non stick spray on the muffin tray and place a spoon full of veggies in each bay.

After that you need to crack the eggs into a bowl and scramble them up. I used 4 whole eggs and 3 eggs whites. You can change that ratio to what ever your preference is. Once the eggs are scrambled up you want to pour some egg mixture into each bay covering he veggies. Make sure to not fill them up to the rim. Once you have the eggs in each bay you can sprinkle a little feta cheese on top of each one, this is optional.

Then you want to put them into the preheated oven and cook them for about 15 minutes, make sure you keep an eye on them since ovens vary from brand to brand. Once they look cooked I like to broil them on low for just a few minutes to make sure the tops are cooked.

Next pop them out of the bays and enjoy!  You can store them in the fridge for a quick breakfast or  snack!

Bon Appétit!
