Denver Omelet Breakfast Muffins

We are reaching that time of year where we are getting spring fever and ready for the summer break.  School is getting closer to being out and kids are getting up later and later for school and running out the door.  A good hearty breakfast is getting harder and harder to come by these days.  My kids come home starving from school.

Since one of our favorite breakfasts to make on the blog is this Oven Baked Denver Omelet, I decided to turn it into these easy to make muffins that can last all week long.  You just pop them into the microwave and reheat and have a delicious breakfast ready to run out the door.

Since we have our eggs delivered to us each week, they were starting to pile up in the fridge.  I was finally able to start using up some of those eggs and this breakfast was a great solution!  They are totally customizable to your families taste but we love the simplicity of peppers, onions, and ham.  They are packed with flavor and the ooey gooey cheese inside is delish!

  1. Why are they called Denver Omelettes? 🙂

  2. I’m always looking for quick, healthy breakfast ideas to hand my kids on the way out to school. I will have to try this (minus the ham).

  3. We love making ahead breakfasts and then just warming them up. This will be a great alternate to our nutritious apple oatmeal muffins!

  4. Do you think using regular milk would come out very different (or even whole milk)?

  5. They would also make a healthy afternoon snack. Protein loaded!
