A great family friendly breakfast idea: Baked Ham & Cheese Egg Omelets!

This is a quick and easy breakfast idea that everyone in the family will love. This ham and cheese egg omelet is my basic go to recipe, but it’s completely customizable. You can easily make it vegetarian by leaving out the ham and adding in some veggies. Depending on what I have in the fridge is what I add. Some variations I use are: mushrooms, spinach, minced onions, and diced bell peppers. I’ve also substituted mozzarella for the cheddar. It’s a great way to use up ingredients in your fridge! Waste not, want not ; )

My kids LOVE to help out in the kitchen and this is a great recipe for them to help with. I let them divi up the ingredients and add them into each muffin tin. They excitedly wait on them to bake so they can enjoy the fruits of their labor. I think their favorite part is that they can eat them with their hands ; )

TIP: You could even make this the night before, cover it with plastic wrap and refrigerate until you’re ready to bake.
