Foodie Friday: Omelet Bites and Waffle Dippers

Ever been in a hurry for breakfast?  Many of us rarely have time on weekday mornings to whip up breakfast for our families.  Omelet muffins are items that you can cook ahead of time and freeze.  When you are ready to eat them, you can just warm them in the microwave for a few minutes!  Add some fruit and you have breakfast. 
 
Omelet Bites

1 red bell pepper
1 green bell pepper
Sausage, bacon, or ham (pre-cooked and chopped….which will save you a lot of time)
8 whole eggs
¼ cup Fat Free milk
Finely shredded cheese
Other suggestions of healthy veggies to sneak in: spinach, mushrooms, onion, tomatoes, basil, zucchini, squash, etc.
Preheat oven to 400 degrees and grease the muffin tins really well (sides and bottoms).
Place a small amount of thawed Simply Potatoes Shredded Hash Browns in the bottom of each tin. Bake the potatoes for 10 minutes.
Chop the rest of your ingredients while waiting on the potatoes. After removed the potatoes from the oven, lower the temperature to 350 degrees.
Sprinkle your toppings over each cup. Whip eggs together with milk. Pour egg mixture in each tin. Sprinkle a pinch of cheddar cheese on top of each cup. Bake for 20 minutes or until the egg is cooked.
To remove from pan, use a butter knife around the edge of each cup to loosen it from the sides and then pop them out. You can also freeze these and heat in the microwave for a really quick breakfast on the go!

And here's another idea to help get your mornings off to a great start:


 Another fast breakfast idea is to make waffle and fruit dippers.  You can use this peanut butter yogurt dip as the dip for the whole grain waffles and fruit.
