Ham & Asparagus Muffin Pan Omelets Recipe

Ham & Asparagus Muffin Pan Omelets Recipe
Muffin pan omelets are quick and easy, and once made, can be frozen for a quick breakfast on the go. Asparagus is in season in the spring, and there is always leftover ham from Easter, so these yummy little Ham and Asparagus Muffin Omelets are perfect for today. They are quick and easy to put together, and go light and puffy when baked.
These miniature omelets are seasoned with lemon pepper, but you can substitute any seasoning salt that you prefer. Ham is reminiscent of spring, but if you wish, you may use bacon, sausage, or even smoked salmon. The omelets will be delicious no matter what you add; broccoli instead of asparagus is also nice.
