Eggs-cellent Breakfast: Baked Omelets
Packed with protein, these BAKED omelets are a healthy way to start off your day, and they’re super quick and easy to prepare!
😀 That title! Sorry, I just had to. But really folks – it was so easy!
Spring has finally arrived here in the ATL and that means one thing; summer is right around the corner! I entered myself in the AJC Peachtree Road Race lottery this year. This is the annual 10K that is held every 4th of July in Atlanta. Since this is the largest 10K in the world, only 60,000 runners are able to participate each year. And I was selected as one of the lucky ones!
So now I have to start thinking about training. I have to admit I didn’t think I would get selected, however I’m sorta thankful that I did because now I have to get myself back in shape, and this is a perfect excuse. So I thought I would share a simple breakfast idea that I came up with this week. It’s really a play on these omelet biscuits I have made in the past. They are packed with peppers & onions, bacon, and a soft egg. No skillet necessary. They’re BAKED so they are super healthy. I did these in the toaster oven so cooking times may vary. Just keep an eye on the eggs and when they’re cooked to your liking, you can remove them.
Let’s see what else I can come up with over the next few months to help me get back in shape. I’ll share any goodies with y’all here. Wish me luck!
- 2 eggs
- 4 Tbsp. bell pepper & onion blend, chopped
- 2 Tbsp. bacon bits
- Cooking spray
- Salt and pepper
- Preheat toaster oven to 425 degrees F.
- Spray two small ramekins with cooking spray.
- Sprinkle 2 Tbsp. of the bell pepper & onion blend in the bottom of each.
- Add 1 Tpsp. bacon bits to each.
- Break one egg over each.
- Salt and pepper to taste.
- Place the ramekins on a baking sheet and bake them for about 20 to 30 minutes, depending on how you like your eggs.
Cooking times may vary.
If you like a softer yolk, start with 20 minutes.
Try scrambling the eggs in a dish first, or use Egg Beaters for an even healthier alternative.
