When I am trying to eat healthy, I focus a lot on breakfast. Because what I eat first thing in the morning definitely sets the tone for the rest of the day. If I start off the morning eating something healthy, I’m more likely to make good decisions the rest of the day. If I start the morning even with a tiny cheat, then it just snowballs into several more cheats throughout the day.

On a related note, my mom was telling me about a weight loss diet she started doing where the first thing she eats in the morning has to be protein. Then she can eat normally for the rest of the day. Has anyone heard or tried this diet? I haven’t tried it myself but it seems to be working for her.

These omelet muffins are similar to my mini frittatas and are a great way to start your morning. The egg muffins are filled with omelet ingredients like cheese, bell peppers, spinach and scallions. You can also add ham or bacon too.

I like to make a large batch of these and then freeze and store them.

How to Keep the Omelet Muffins Fluffy

  • To make these egg muffins fluffy, I add a little bit of milk to the whisked eggs. I usually do this when I’m making scrambled eggs too.
  • I used skim milk to keep the calorie and fat content low, but if you want them even fluffier and don’t care about the calories, you can use half & half. If you want a lighter version just out my Egg White Muffins.

Tips for Making Omelet Muffins

  • Use a nonstick muffin pan and grease it before adding the batter. The egg muffins do stick to the pan, but using a nonstick muffin pan and greasing it will make it easier for you to release the muffins from the pan.
  • Cut all the omelet ingredients into very small pieces. For example, bell peppers should be around 1/2 inch squares. This will allow them to cook quickly.
  • If you are using any meat, make sure the meat is already precooked before adding it to the muffin batter.

Ingredients

  • 8 large eggs
  • 1/2 cup milk I use skim or low fat, but whole milk also works
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1 cup bell peppers diced (I used a mix of red, orange and green)
  • 1/2 cup baby spinach roughly chopped
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 2 scallions thinly sliced

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350°F. Grease the interior of a nonstick muffin pan.
  • In a medium bowl, add eggs and milk. Whisk until uniform. Stir in cheese, bell peppers, spinach, salt, scallions and any other omelet ingredients you are adding.
  • Scoop batter into muffin tin, filling them almost to the rim. You should have enough batter for 12 muffins.
  • Bake for about 20-25 minutes, or until eggs are cooked. The muffins will initially be very puffy, but will sink back down when they cool.
  • Use a thin spatula to loosen edges of muffins to remove them from the pan. Eat while warm. Store uneaten muffins in fridge or freezer.

  1. Best way to reheat? Would a microwave make the egg part gross? 

  2. What is the best way to reheat after freezing 

  3. I used ricotta cheese instead of cheddar and peas instead of spinach, also added baby tomatos, calories worked out at 90 cals each, thanks for the recipe

    Bless you n thank you for this recipe.

  5. About your mum’s diet….I am on a low FODMAP diet (ibs) and they urge protein to start the morning. That really holds me for the day and as a bonus, I am gradually losing weight. If not egg, I have a fruit, protein powder and almond milk.
