Omelets in a Pan
A few weeks back I mentioned that at my last doctor’s appointment for the baby check up, my doctor made it clear that my cereal for breakfast was not going to cut it. I already have blood sugar issues to begin with but on top of that I lack protein in my diet. She insisted that I give up the cereal and replace it with omelets that have meat and veggies in them.
That may sound delicious to many people, but there is one problem…I really do not like eggs! I can handle them occasionally; however, during this pregnancy I have an even heightened aversion to eggs. I’m trying to put it behind me though and make myself eat them. I also typically have to eat an egg substitute due to high cholesterol; however, I was told that having one regular egg a day would be fine.
Normal mornings around our house are frantic as my son goes to preschool year round and we are usually in a rush. So, for me as with probably 99% of the country being able to make an omelet every morning for breakfast was not going to work. Also, I’m just not the best omelet maker. So, I went with the next best option to bake them!
To do this, I used my brownie pan from Pampered Chef; however, you can use a regular muffin pan for this as well.
I added 1 egg to each of the squares, 12 total. Then, I added all the toppings I would like on an omelet. For these, I added some fresh green pepper, tomatoes, sausage, and cheese. Next, all you do is bake and serve! These can be stored in the freezer in freezer safe containers to use throughout the week or month as well. For me, this worked out perfect because I can now eat one every morning, and I can make enough to last the entire month.
