Get your vegetables and protein in these miniature Veggie Omelette Cups! They’re freezer friendly and come together in minutes!
Do you love eggs but never have the time to scramble them up in the mornings?
Sometimes I feel the same way. Eggs are so full of protein and healthy fats, so I try to eat them every day. But even I get tired of scrambling them every morning.
I also love having vegetables with my eggs, which is why these Omelette Cups are so amazing. You get your protein, your fat, and your vegetables in a to-go sized cup. All you have to do is heat and eat!
What kind of vegetables can you put in these?
Whatever you want! That’s the beauty of these Omelette Cups; you can add pretty much anything and not mess it up.
In this recipe, I used bell peppers, spinach, and onions; but feel free to change it up. Add zucchini, or mushrooms, or whatever else you like. I’ve even used small chopped broccoli and that turned out good as well!
Can you freeze these Omelette Cups?
Definitely! Just put the cooled cups on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper and freeze; then transfer to a gallon-sized freezer bag.
When you’re ready to eat, just pop 3 or 4 in the microwave and defrost/heat.
What goes well with these for breakfast?
Since these little guys are about 70 calories each, you kind of need something else to go with them. I actually ate 3 of these with some of the banana bread; but you could have toast, or oatmeal, or fruit to go with it as well.
