omelette muffinsSunday mornings are for spoiling the family. Hubby starts the day with a session of squash and by the time he returns around 11 a.m., I have a nice brunch on the table. Today I made these delicious omelette muffins. They keep well for a day or two, so they’re perfect as a quick weekday breakfast, too. In fact, you can even freeze them.
Here’s the recipe. Enjoy.
