Omelet Muffins

Me & eggs are not the best of friends.  Rather, I should clarify that eggs don't really like to be cooked by me.  In the early years of my marriage (almost 10 years ago!!!), I set out to recreate an omelet not unlike the ones that my dad cooked for me and my family during my childhood and growing up years.  He always made omelet making and flipping look so easy, so I was confident that I could do this also.  Well, wouldn't you know it?  I found out in a very short amount of time that I sucked at making omelets.  The stupid thing was stuck to the pan, and who even knew why.  My salivary glands were in high gear in anticipation of a Dad-like omelet, and when I realized that I just simply did not possess the adequate skills, I got mad.  Real mad.  So mad that I picked up that skillet, let out a scream, and slammed it down on the burner.  (I know, real mature, right?!)  Well, as you might have imagined, egg.went.everywhere.  Everywhere.  In a disgusted voice, I declared that I was done, threw my hands up, and stalked out of the kitchen.  My loving new husband graciously (and without uttering an audible word of condemnation) cleaned up the eggy mess.  I have never attempted an omelet again.  And, I don't do "dunky" eggs either.  He does.  :)  True story.

However, omelet muffins I can do.  And I will do. Often.  Because these are yummy.

  2. Ugh I totally suck at making omelets as well! I always end up with scrambled eggs. Always.

    These casseroles look like the perfect solution! So cute!

  3. I wonder how these would freeze? I am always looking for things to freeze for my husband. He like to grab something from the freezer on his way out the door to work. - Michele
