Great as a low-carb breakfast for on the go, these Mini Western Omelet Frittatas have everything you love in a western omelet like: diced ham, bell peppers and Swiss cheese, simply made in a muffin pan. A satisfying meal for your buys mornings!
I love nothing more than to wake up and breakfast is already made. This happens never, unless I prep a batch of mini frittatas. Since you guys loved the turkey broccoli and cheddar version I made a few years ago, I was inspired to recreate a similar recipe but this time using my favorite omelet ingredients.
The usual cast of characters in a western omelet is ham, peppers, onions and cheese. And these mini western omelet frittatas are no different.
I first tested this recipe last December when I had a lot of leftover ham from the holiday to use up. And OH. MY. GOSH. were these a hit! My family would wake up and pop two in the microwave to reheat. I think they like to have breakfast already made just as much as I do.
To make these you will need a dozen eggs, salt and pepper, red pepper flakes, 1 cup diced ham, a 1/2 cup of both red bell pepper and Swiss cheese and 1/3 cup sliced green onions. I like to use Jarlsberg but any Swiss should work.
And if I was to make these only for myself, I would add a 1/2 cup of sliced mushrooms. So yum!
Crack 6 large eggs into a mixing bowl. Separate the remaining 6 eggs, adding in the whites and saving the yolks for another use.
Season with a half teaspoon of kosher salt, 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper and a pinch or two of red pepper flakes. Whisk until combine.
Then add in 1 cup diced (cooked) ham, 1/2 cup diced red bell pepper, 1/2 cup grated Swiss cheese and 1/3 cup of sliced green onion. If adding sliced mushrooms, you’ll need 1/2 cup as well.
Stir to combine, then measure and divide the egg mixture among a muffin pan that has been sprayed with non-stick olive oil spray.
Bake in your preheated 350° oven on the middle rack for 18 to 20 minutes. Allow to cool, before using a spatula and removing.
Everything you love about a western omelet in a smaller, make-ahead frittata! Delicious as is or with hot sauce!
