Mini Oven Omelettes …. (moo? really? yes.)

Mini Oven Omelette

 

Ah, the joys of getting old. Bill was recently diagnosed as pre-diabetic, and had to make some major dietary changes.  Essentially eliminating sugars from his diet for six weeks, then he gets to slowly reintroduce them.  So, no more cereals for brekkie.

Thank goodness for the interwebs.  We’ve been experimenting with making little omelettes in a jumbo muffin pan.  Honestly, it’s been pretty awesome – a grab-n-go for workweek mornings. 

This week we have spinach, onion, bacon and tomato.  Hope you try it, and like it!
