Breakfast Cup Omelettes, so easy and quick to make. Great for eating hot or cold, packed with protein & natural fats AND cheap to make too, great if you’re on a tight budget!

So whether it’s breakfast, brunch, lunch, a snack or dinner, these are a winner winner! And they also make for a great choice for wee ones that are weaning.

2 options; you can make mini omelette style breakfast cups (recipe below) or really simple cups which are just bacon, ham, turkey, salami, cheese slices or Quorn slices to line a greased muffin tin, then an egg cracked into the middle. Pop into an oven at around 180°c for 12-15 mins or until cooked to your liking.

I find these great for using up food from the fridge. You can add as much or as little filling to these as you like! Here I made:
2 x spinach, spring onion, ricotta & feta
2 x tomato, spring onion & cheddar
2 x ham, tomato & cheddar
