Breakfast is a tricky one when it comes to eating healthily, particularly if you are tight on time. The traditional eggs-on-toast or a bowl of cereal either take too long or are full of sugar… So, on my health kick this year, I’ve come to rely on these fab omelette muffins – you can grab a couple as you leave the house and eat them in the car, or if you’ve got a few more minutes, you can even stick them in the microwave for 30 seconds and heat them up – yum!
I actually posted a similar recipe to this one back in 2015, but those were totally veggie, and these are ham ones, and therefore definitely more yummy! I was going to take the other post down when this one went live because it was a bit dated, but actually upon reading I realised that as I put a bit of a back story on each recipe I post, it was quite a nice reminder of a different time in my life, when I had just landed a role in a brand new musical off-west-end in London – so I’ve left it up. Have a read if you fancy – click here.
These are quick to cook, and can be stored for about a week in the fridge, or longer in the freezer – so I make them in batches.
Makes: 10 Calories per muffin: 58
What You Need:
- Cupcake baking tray
- Silicone or other non-stick cupcake cases (I got mine from John Lewis)
- 6 Eggs
- 3 Slices of Ham
- Salt & Pepper
How To Do It:
- Preheat the oven to 200C.
- Lay 10 cupcake cases into the baking tray.
- Crack the 6 eggs into a jug and whisk until smooth.
- Add Salt and Pepper.
- Chop the Ham into small chunks.
- Add a few pieces of the ham to the bottom of each of the cupcake cases
- Pour the Egg into each of the cupcake cases equally.
- Add the rest of the ham to each muffin (so that the ham isn’t all at the bottom)
- Place in the oven for 10-15 minutes, until golden brown. They will puff right up so don’t overfill the cases!
- Take out of the oven and either eat hot, or allow to cool and store for grabbing on the go. They will shrink down as they cool – I generally have a couple at least when I’m grabbing them on my way out of the house – perfect fuel to start a long day in the hospital.
