Mini Omelettes

This is a really simple and quick recipe that could be for breakfast or lunch.  The ingredients I used are as follows, but use your own favourite omelette ingredients or whatever is in season.

8 eggs
mushrooms chopped into little pieces
handful of spinach from my veg patch
grated cheese
salt and pepper

Saute the mushrooms until they are soft.

While they are cooking wash the spinach and cut off any tough stalks.

Wilt the spinach in a saucepan with just the water from washing them, then drain off any excess water by squeezing if necessary and chop.

Whisk 8 large eggs, then add mushrooms, spinach, tarragon, cheese, salt and pepper.

Oil a muffin tin and ladle the mixture into the tin making sure not to overfill as they will rise slightly when cooked.

Place in the oven on a medium heat for 20 to 25 mins until cooked.

Keep any remaining omelettes covered in the fridge and zap them in the microwave to reheat or eat them cold.  I will be popping a couple of these in my lunch box.

I hope you all had a good weekend, I spent the day with a friend at a workshop learning to make little books, lots of tearing and sticking and getting covered in paint.   I will tell you more about it another day.

  3. Those look so yummy, I'll give them a go, chickpea.

  4. They look like brilliant picnic food as well.

  5. fab idea, and very SW friendly for my shrinking plan !

  6. Delicious! I love egg and spinach for breakfast xxx

  7. I can't take credit for the idea, I saw it somewhere, can't remember where, and I don't think it was spinach. It is so easy I don't know why I didn't think of it. Hope you enjoy them xx

  8. To make these even more filling I line the muffin tins with squares of pastry, the points will flop a bit in the oven, and fill with the mixture, they take around 25 minutes and are perfect little mini quiches. Lovely hot or cold, I first saw them in Australia and have made them loads of times.

  9. They look delicious. Maybe I could even put them in the kids' lunchboxes if they're still good cold.

  10. Looks lovely, one of my favourite foods is egg and spinach.

  11. I like them cold Jennifer, I take them for my packed lunch :)

  13. Lovely. I'd never thought of making omelettes like this before.
