Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

I'm a little shocked at how easy this looks--only 4 ingredients! I could see myself making these as a breakfast-for-dinner to grab on my way out the door.

I used frozen shredded potatoes that were thawed to line the muffin tins - baked for 10 mins, let cool and the poured the egg mixture in and then baked as the directions for this recipe stated, but checked them with a toothpick 5 mins before the full time was up to make sure they didn't over cook.

Just awesome! Love 'em

Had these with pancakes.... Breakfast for Dinner....LuvLuvLuv!!!

Made these this morning. They taste great and the sides did not turn brown like in the picture, yet were fully cooked. I used an ceramic/ironstone muffin pan. Thanks!

Can these be frozen and heated in the microwave later? I want to make them for an elderly relative for a fast easy microwave breakfast.

Good news! You can freeze these mini delights and then heat them in the microwave.

Wouldn't you need to add milk to this mixture ?

Nope. worked fine as the recipe is.

Made this this morning and it is delicious! It would even be good with fried bacon, crumbled in place of the ham. This is definitely a make again breakfast!

I tried this today and it worked wonderfully! I lost my muffin tin so I used a baking dish instead and it worked just fine.

My sister really loves it and Aurora ate it all gone and I will do it again. I myself enjoyed and I had at least two of them.

Had one close to this one & between the two yours is tops!!!!!

Ok., I made this for (1) as I am a widow. I used a small casserole, and lined it with croutons after spraying. It slipped out easily, had no 'brown' sides, and was just lovely! The neat thing is you can vary the cheese, the meat, even the veggies, if you so desire! Yum!

it is egg mixture but i use rectangle crescent from tube and press in sprayed cups bake for 5 mins then add egg mixture continue to bake but cook on high level of oven to prevent burning

Excuse my ignorance, but what is the brown "cuplike" brown container in the muffin tin? Is it egg? If so, it doesn't look too appetizing.

The outside of the omelet cups you see is where the egg browned from being in the muffin tin. Thank you for your question!

I think the reason I and others are questioning what was used to line the muffin tin is because in the picture there is a definite demarcation between the outer "cup" and the inner egg. I expect to see some continuity between the inner and outer egg at the top edge of the muffin. That is, there should be some crustiness between the very crisp part touching the muffin pan and the top of the omelet. A non-stick pan would produce a crispier, darker bottom, but there should still be some browning on the top edge.

Can you use a muffin liner?

I've made these using slices of deli ham to line the muffin tins, and then filling them with the egg mixture. Very good :-)

I put a biscuit in the bottom of the muffin pan.

No you didn't! A biscuit in the bottom would expand and push the egg mixture out of the muffin tin. The eggs would then burn, smoke, and form a charred crust on oven floor.

Zoumonkie, I can find no tag that this recipe belongs to sherry. I can see how a biscuit rolled thin might work as a liner. Yes, it would rise, but not as much. Your rather arrogant dismissal was uncalled for.

Why change the recipe to something completely different by making it a biscuit? A thin biscuit would be a pancake

The rise 'n' shine was easy to make and My Family loved it. And are asking for more.

Evidently I am not understanding something here....how do you create (or do you) the cup which you fill with the egg mixture?

From your muffin pan or cupcake.

It is not a cup made out of a muffin, it is the well (cup) of your muffin tin that you are filling. The tin is "prepared" by spraying it with non-stick cooking spray. Hope this helps.

I need to double or possibly triple the recipe to take to a meeting. Can these be made ahead, baked, and then reheated before taking them somewhere? Or, can they be made up the night before, placed uncooked in the muffin pans, and then baked the next morning?

The egg cups can be baked and then reheated the next day.

I have made egg in a mug, using the refrigerated egg substitute, adding cream cheese or cheddar, and any other ingredients you like. Microwave 1 minute, stir, and microwave in 15 second increments until it's the desired consistency. Be sure to spray the mug well with oil.

I think these would be great when camping and the varieties are unlimited! I will have to try the boil in a bag idea too

Since I make sausage gravy often, I keep pre-browned sausage in the freezer. I think I'll try this with some sausage and bacon... Yum!

I will definitely try this but will share an easy one for you that turns out great. top of the stove boil in water in sealable baggie. 2 eggs bacon bits, or ham cubes 1/2 c. shredded cheese 1 green onion chopped put in bag and seal, then knead it to mix. Boil in water on top of stove exactly 13 min. It rolls out perfect on plate when done, then you can add cheese or salsa or whatever to top of it and enjoy.

Be sure it's a heavier freezer bag, pint or quart size.

Easy and delicious - I have done the same thing for one or two eggs in the microwave - 50 seconds stirring once half way.

I have just read the recipe, I don't see how it can go wrong.....its simple and easy and would be great for when the grand kids are here....thanks bunches!

I love my egg cups, and made them adaptable to what I have on hand. Since it's usually just me, I use a small oven proof dish - like a miniature souffle dish. Spray dish, line with sliced ham, then I add one egg, cheese and salsa in whatever order floats your boat. I like this method when I want the yolk a bit runny! Whatever ingredients you use, this is a nice method.

try chourico, vidalia onions sauted with red bell pepper instead of ham & cheese, fabulous.

Do you mean charizo, or is this something new to me?

I believe the spelling you're both looking for is CHORIZO.

we are going to try these today, I can't wait!

My kids saw this on tv and said I must try it !! We are having it this morning .. using sausage instead of ham though .. :)

this recipe sounds to simple to be true.will try it the next time all the grand kids spend the njght

Do the Omelet Cups freeze well, or do they get watery?

Yes, but heat them up in the oven instead of the microwave.

That is awesome! This was my first time on this site and I love it. Looks like some great food and Ideas.

I think this recipe will be great for company. It's a little special and yet seems easy enough to prepare. I'll try them soon.

These sound really good. Can't wait to try them.
