Mini Omelets

Are those cute or what?! They're little omelets that I baked in a muffin tin and they happen to be the perfect size for kids. The kids and I had fun trying out some new recipes last week and these were one of them.

Talk about easy and an activity the whole family can join in on. Each person got to choose their own fillings and put them inside their own muffin well. I poured the egg mixture on top and baked them in the oven. Even my little daycare guy that never eats eggs for me gobbled this up! They were really yummy!

Definitely use whatever ingredients/toppings you have on hand for these. I had some leftover ham steak from dinner the night before so that was our meat choice. We added green peppers and cheddar cheese in as well.

Now while we're talking about kids, check out this fun activity we did outside this morning!

I made up some sidewalk chalk paint for the kids to pain the patio area with. They loved it and it's so simple to make, I know you'll have everything on hand for it. Simply mix 3T cornstarch with 3T water, then add in 5-6 drops of food coloring and mix all together. That's it, give them a paint brush and have at it. Some of the colors showed up a little better than others, but overall it was a frugal activity that they really enjoyed.

Mini Omelets

6 eggs
Splash of milk
Salt and Pepper, to taste
Chopped Ham
Diced Green Pepper
Grated Cheddar Cheese


Beat eggs in a medium sized bowl with milk, season with salt and pepper. Set aside. Grease 6-7 muffins wells, add in chopped ham, green pepper and cheese. Pour eggs over each well until 3/4 full. You don't want them to be too full because the eggs do puff up a little bit. Gently stir and bake in a preheated 350 degree oven for 15-17 minutes or until eggs have settled and are starting to turn golden brown around the edges. Let cool for 5 minutes and then remove from muffin tin. Enjoy!
