Denver Omelet Breakfast Muffins are such a great breakfast and perfect for making ahead or on the go! Loaded with Peppers, onions, ham and ooey gooey cheese, these will become a favorite!
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!
These are the absolute perfect make ahead breakfast muffins for you or your kiddos on the go! Packed with protein these hearty Denver omelet breakfast muffins are going to become a family favorite!
Denver Omelet Breakfast Muffins
- ½ cup onion chopped
- 1 cup green pepper chopped
- 1 cup chopped fully cooked ham
- 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
- 8 eggs
- ½ cup half and half cream
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1/4 teaspoon pepper
- Sliced green onion for garnish (or you can add it in.)
- Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Lightly grease a 12 muffin pan. Divide the onion, green pepper, and ham evenly over the 12 muffin tins. Add the cheddar cheese evenly on the top.
- In a medium sized bowl whisk the eggs, half and half, salt and pepper. Pour over the top of the cheese and fill the liner until almost full.
- Bake for 20-22 minutes or until set. Remove and serve warm or let cool and store in the refrigerator or freezer. Reheat from fridge for about 30 seconds or frozen for about 1 minute or until heated through.

SIlly question, but how do you store them for the week? In a container in the freezer? Just leave in fridge? How long will they last? For instance, can I make 12 of these muffins on Sunday to eat M-F for breakfast by just storing them in a ziplock in my fridge?
I would store them in a ziplock bag with the air let out of it so it is tight inside. They will last about 4 to 5 days in the refrigerator and about 1 week in the freezer. You can even individually wrap them or put them in their own ziplock bag to grab out individual sizes each morning.
Such an easy way for my kids to eat veggies! It is so good.
My take on this recipe just came out of the oven looking great. Thanks for this quick start to the morning
Made these this morning for my son to take on his beach trip with his buddies. I used turkey sausage instead of ham because that’s what I had on hand. Just delicious ( he won’t miss one) I’ll make these often. I thank you and my son and his friends thank you!
That is awesome! What a fun day for him and a great breakfast for him to have. Thanks so much for sharing and following along with me! XOXO
Have you ever tried to bake a whole bunch at once, I am thinking 2 trays of 12 on the top shelf and 2 trays of 12 on the bottom shelf for a brunch party. I am wondering if you can cook that many at once.
Made these this morning. I used bacon, ham, tomatoes amd cheddar cheese and eggs.. Salt and pepper..yummy husband loved them.
wanted to try Denver Breakfast Muffins but cant fine Half and Half cream
is there something other then this i scan used
these look great & i can’t wait to try them! i just have one kinda stupid question – are these regular size muffin tins or are the mini size muffin tins?
Turned out yummy. I’m going to add some jalapenos next time. I used milk instead of 1\2 & 1\2
MMM! I love a little spice! Great idea! Thanks for sharing! XOXO
I added jalapeños, taste great!
Will try this recipe
hey girl- these look so yummy! Have a great weekend!
Love it! Perfect for breakfast.
Will certainly try his. Looks very tasty
These look amazing!
I can’t seem to print your recipes. It comes out blank. Help!
Are you trying directly from my website?
They would also make a healthy afternoon snack. Protein loaded!
Do you think using regular milk would come out very different (or even whole milk)?
You can even use skim
We love making ahead breakfasts and then just warming them up. This will be a great alternate to our nutritious apple oatmeal muffins!
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).
Why are they called Denver Omelettes? 🙂
That was the name given to an omelette with little dices of ham, bell pepper, onion and cheese decades ago in diners across America! It stuck! ☺️??
