Individual Baked Mediterranean Egg Omelets

Breakfast for dinner is a fun way to change up the ordinary, and these little baked omelets are a simple, healthy dinner option. Your kiddos can add whatever items they like in their omelet for a creative way to engage the whole family in helping dinner make it to the table.

INGREDIENTS

  • 6 eggs
  • 3 Tbsp. milk 
  • 1 Tbsp. fresh basil, chopped finely
  • 2 Tbsp. diced Roma tomato
  • 2 Tbsp. canned mushrooms with stem and pieces, drained and chopped
  • 2 Tbsp. black olives, drained and chopped
  • 16 oz. shredded Parmesan cheese
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Garlic (fresh minced or powder) to taste
  • Muffin tin
  • Nonstick cooking spray
  • Medium mixing bowl
  • Whisk

HOW TO

  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees.
  2. Spray 9 of the cups in the muffin tin with cooking spray and set pan aside.
  3. Crack eggs into mixing bowl, add milk and whisk thoroughly.
  4. Divide egg mixture equally into sprayed muffin cups, filling each about 2/3 full.
  5. Sprinkle basil, tomato, mushroom and black olives into the cups.
  6. Sprinkle a small amount of Parmesan cheese into each cup.
  7. Bake for 15–18 minutes or until the egg on top is “dry.” Eggs will rise slightly in the cups as they bake.
