Looking for an easy and nutritious breakfast for your family? Loaded with cheese and herbs, these easy Vegetarian Breakfast Omelette Muffins keep you full until lunch time.
I love to combine feta, herbs and eggs to make a quick omelet with butter. I can have this for breakfast, lunch or dinner. This vegetarian breakfast omelette in muffin pan is inspired by my regular omelette recipe, with an addition of red and green peppers.
I can’t think of a morning without eggs, one of my favorite foods. Believe it or not, every morning I wake up with eggs in my mind. I never leave home before eating eggs. I’m so lucky that my son loves them as much I do, so before preparing breakfast, I ask him “how do you like your eggs today?” He mostly prefers fried eggs with runny yolks. You must see his joy when spooning that yolk. He wants to eat scrambled or boiled eggs as well once or twice a week.
So I love to create breakfast recipes using eggs for him. His all time favorite is Turkish Menemen Recipe, which is made with eggs, tomatoes and green peppers, but he is open to new egg recipes too.
Best Vegetarian Breakfast Muffins Ingredients
I made these with cheese so that everything for breakfast is included, but if you want to make them dairy-free, then leave the cheeses and butter out. That being said, I highly recommend this recipe with cheese and butter as they really enrich the flavor. So what do we need?
How To Make Omelette Muffin Recipe
It’s really easy to make these breakfast omelette muffins. Just combine your favorite omelet ingredients and bake in muffin tins. What I love about this recipe is that you can change the ingredients to your taste. I make them vegetarian, but you can add sausages or bacon bits if you want to go non-vegetarian. Also, you can add extra veggies like mushrooms or spinach. Moreover, you can use whatever cheese you like. Just make sure the cheese you use doesn’t get watery when baked. I combined goat cheese and feta, but I think cheddar would be fine too.
Did My Son Love These?
I wish I could tell you that my son loved these muffins, but he kindly make several criticisms. For one thing, he didn’t like the texture of the muffins. He says he loves it more when the eggs are like creamy. Right, he is a fan of runny eggs and that might be a reason. Another thing he didn’t like is peppers. Although he loves to snack on raw peppers, he didn’t like them in these breakfast omelet muffins. Finally, although he didn’t say it, I think he was expecting something sweet when he saw the muffins. You can imagine how disappointing it was for him when he had the first bite, but he managed to eat one nevertheless. Maybe he didn’t want to upset me. He just said fried eggs are fine, no need for these. Lol!
On the contrary, I love them. They are like on-the-go omelette. Super easy in the early morning. Plus, you can eat as many as you can because this is a healthy vegetarian breakfast. Oh and you can add your favorite vegetable in it too.
Can I Make Omelette Muffins Ahead Of Time?
If you like make ahead breakfasts, you can make these muffins ahead and freeze or refrigerate. You just need to reheat them before eating and grab one and go. Sounds easy, right? On the other hand, I love my eggs freshly cooked or baked. Reheating eggs is definitely not for me, but it’s up to you.
