Muffin Pan Omelets Recipe

Muffin Pan Omelets Recipe
Most families are busy in the morning, especially those with kids getting ready for school in addition to parents getting ready for work. So it stands to reason that breakfast has to be something fast and easy. The following Muffin Pan Omelets are quick and easy, but the most important part is that you can make a dozen at a time and they freeze beautifully. These yummy omelets, that you can personalize with ingredients that you and your family like, can be taken from the freezer and microwaved for a minute or two; that certainly beats cold cereal on a frosty morning. Toast is a good accompaniment, or fresh fruit, if it's convenient. They are also small enough that they can be wrapped in a napkin and taken on the go.
You can use any breakfast meat such as ham, crisp bacon, or sausage, as well as cooked chorizo (add jalapenos and other Mexican ingredients for a South of the Border omelet). Leftover vegetables work nicely, as well as any fresh ones that happen to be in the fridge. These are so good, you'll want to double the batch; they'll disappear quickly.
