A muffin that’s an omelette? Or, an omelette that’s a muffin. Yes, whichever way you think about it, these omelette muffins are a top treat. Muffins are distinctly moreish, while omelette is a protein, vitamin and mineral-packed food. 

These baked omelette muffins will have everyone crowding round the breakfast table, but we reckon you’d be missing a trick if you only served them for the first meal of the day. They make a brilliant nibble with a drink as well, a fact we can definitely vouch for. A combination of spring onions, cherry tomatoes, baby spinach, red pepper, and cheese, along with the eggs makes them taste-packed plus they look great on a serving plate.
