Baked Mini Omelets for ADD Nutrition
Many people with Attention Deficit Disorder have lives filled with activities. If I am completely scheduled, I get things done. If just a few activities are on the calendar, I tend to drift, maybe missing a few deadlines. With my preferred hectic schedule, a sit down breakfast doesn't happen often. It's usually grab-and-go. These baked mini omelets are a great breakfast option. Delicious and portable, they take a small amount of time to make a dozen of them.
I use a jumbo silicone muffin pan with cups to make large muffins. They are perfect for these omelets. I have placed an Amazon link at the end, so that you can see which pans work well. The recipe makes 12 mini omelets.
Baked Mini Omelets Recipe
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
½ cup shredded sharp cheddar cheese
½ cup Fage Greek yogurt
1 teaspoon dried parsley
1 teaspoon dried cilantro
2 tablespoons celery leaves (optional
1 teaspoon seasoning salt
2 finely chopped mushrooms
½ cup finely chopped onions
½ cup finely chopped sweet peppers
In a food processor, process the eggs, cheese, yogurt, parsley, cilantro, celery leaves, and seasoned salt. Pour the mixture into a bowl and stir in the chopped mushrooms, onions, and peppers. Set aside.
Spray your muffin pans with non-stick spray. Divide the mixture evenly into the muffin cups, about ¼ cup of the mixture in each cup. Place the muffin pans in the oven on a middle shelf. Bake the muffins for 20-25 minutes, until a knife inserted into the center of an omelet comes out clean.
Cool and place individual omelets into sandwich bags. The omelets freeze well and can be reheated in the microwave.
If you want to change the taste, use a different cheese. Add chopped ham or bacon bits. Use more mushrooms or add spinach. Spice them up with jalapenos and peppadews. Make these, so that you and your family enjoy eating them.
Sometimes, I just eat the mini omelets as a finger food. Other times, I put them on an English muffin as part of a sandwich. You can also melt cheese on the English muffin or add bacon strips. Lettuce and sliced tomatoes work well with this breakfast sandwich.
The more organization that you can put into your life, the easier it is to control the negative symptoms of Attention Deficit Disorder. When symptoms are managed, life is better. At least, that has been my experience. What tips do you have for living well with ADD? Post them in our BellaOnline ADD Forum!
