Tuesday Tastings: Paleo Omlette Muffins

This week, my Tuesday Tasting recipe is Paleo Omlette Muffins, which came to me via my daily email updates from allrecipes.com (a God-send, seriously!).  I have put these daily emails to good use many times when I’m struggling to come up with what to make for dinner (a common occurence with me)! These muffins were super quick to make (took me all of about 10 minutes) and very tasty!

Ingredients:

8 eggs

8 oz cooked ham, cut into small pieces

8 C diced bell red pepper (I omitted this one due to my picky eaters and my pepper allergy)

1 C diced onion

1/4 tsp salt

1/8 tsp ground black pepper

2 Tbsp water

Recipe:

  1. Preheat oven to 350 F (175 C). Grease 8 muffin cups or line with paper liners.
  2. Beat eggs together in a large bowl. Mix ham, bell pepper, onion, salt, black pepper, and water into the beaten eggs. Pour egg mixture evenly into prepared muffin cups. (I filled the muffin cups almost to the top.)
  3. Bake in the preheated oven until muffins are set in the middle, 18 to 20 minutes (it seemed to take mine about 22 mins to cook).

The website has a great “Adjust Serving” tool I really love, since we have 6 of us eating and many recipes make only 4 servings. There were only 3 of us eating them, so I changed the serving size to 3 and it made all the ingredient adjustments for me – BONUS!Paleo egg muffins1

A few things I would do differently next time I make them:

  • I used the paper muffin liners, but a lot of the egg ended up stuck to the paper when we took them out – that’s what I get for being lazy! Next time, I will grease the muffin cups.
  • Be sure to chop the onions finely enough. I didn’t, so they were still quite crunchy when we ate them (I’m not a fan of crunchy onions!).
  • Quickly sautee the ham and onion together before adding to the eggs. Adds an extra step, but will ensure the onions are soft. Another option would be to replace the onion with green onion – might be better for picky eaters who find the onion taste too strong.
  • I think I’ll add diced tomatoes when I make them again…I didn’t have any this time, but I love tomatoes in omlettes. Really, you can add just about anything – mushrooms, broccoli, spinach…whatever you’d think to put in a regular omlette!

Since there were only three of us eating these, there weren’t technically 6 thumbs up, but we all thought they were easy and delicious, so:

The Burke Verdict:

Paleo Omlette Muffins: 6 thumbs up!
