These little muffin tin omelets are my new heart-song. They are low carb, protein rich, filling, and delicious.
I’ve been making a pan a week for myself, one of the kids, and one for my husband. They cook up so quick and easy, completely hands off, and just pop right out of the muffin tin once cooled a bit. I then let these muffin omelets cool completely and place in a zipper seal bag in the fridge for quick and easy heat up breakfasts.
Thirty to forty five seconds in the microwave and they taste like they were just made! I find that having things like this handy helps me stay on track because I have a “good” snack to grab rather than a bad one so I am far more likely to make that “good” choice. These muffin omelets keep me from cravin’ sweets during the day.
Some of my friends mix up just the egg mixture and put that in the muffin tins, then allow their family to add in their own toppings to each individual little omelet – an eggcellent idea!
Is This a Muffin Omelet or a Mini Fritatta?
You say potato and I say potato 🙂 I took a poll at our house and we are going with muffin tin omelet. Keep in mind they can be frozen and reheated as well. Some might even venture to eat cold but I like mine nice and toasty warm.

- 1 cup sharp cheddar cheese shredded
- 1 cup turkey sausage or chopped meat of choice
