Omelet Muffins are a mixture of sausage and cheese stirred with fluffy eggs. A great hand held breakfast for your busy Christmas morning!
I love a good muffin in the morning, but some days I am really not feeling the sweet breakfast thing. Don’t get me wrong -- Cinnabon pumpkin muffins or sweet potato muffins are delicious! And omelets are one of my favorite foods for any hour of the day, but really at 7 a.m. it’s not often I have time to go all in with an omelet, and sometimes that’s the flavor I waaaaaaant.
You get that, right?
I knew you would.
So I married omelets and muffins and made these puffy little bites filled with sausage, cheese, onions, peppers, and egg. Can you say delicious?
When I was a kid I used to read all the recipes on the sides of the boxes in my mom’s kitchen until I found one we had all the ingredients to make. Bisquick had this cheeseburger pie recipe that was sort of like quiche. I made it a few times when I was like 12, and that halfway bready but still eggy custard texture is what really stayed in my brain.
Because of all the eggs it always seemed like breakfast to me so I set out here to turn what I remembered into a puffy little bite that I could reheat really fast and then take with me in the car.
Morning carpool consumes me.
I started by sautéing some onions and bell peppers really quickly. Then I cooked and crumbled some sausage. After making a quick batter that actually kind or resembles pancake batter, and then folding in the sausage, onions, peppers, and a helping of grated cheese, these little omelet muffins are ready to bake!
They refrigerate and freeze really well, and they reheat perfectly. The texture is the perfect blend of fluffy bread and eggy omelet with sausage and veggies. You could really add whatever you like to these though -- you could easily make them all veggie with mushrooms and tomatoes in place of the sausage. You could work them out with bacon and cheese. The possibilities are pretty endless!
