If you live somewhere that has Tim Horton’s chains, maybe you noticed or even tried their new omelet bites.
Well, I tried them a few weeks ago and they were great. So I decided I needed to make my own omelet bite recipe so we could have them for breakfast at home.
They turned out awesome, they’re fast and easy. We’ve been eating these omelets a couple of days per week so I wanted to share them.
The first time I tried making this recipe I really screwed up. And I’m telling you that straight off the bat so you don’t make the same mistake. I used a nonstick cooking spray (and a nonstick pan) and these still stuck.
I was able to get them out to eat them without any problem but I ended up throwing away my muffin pan because I couldn’t get all of the cooked on egg off the bottom edges of the muffin cups.
So you absolutely, 100% need to use parchment paper liners when you bake these. They’re very inexpensive, they protect your pan and they literally fall off the omelet bites when you remove them from the pan.
Different Ingredients to Use in Omelet Bites
There are a lot of ways to variate this recipe, depending on your personal preferences. You can try adding different ingredients, make them with egg whites, make them without milk and cheese if you’re dairy-free, etc.
They aren’t quite as fluffy without the milk though and you’ll notice they puff up quite a bit while cooking but they will sink back down if they’re made without milk.
Some of the ingredients I’ve tried so far:
The kids even had them with just cheese (since they refuse to eat anything green) and loved them too.
Can you freeze omelet bites?
Yes, you can!
You can definitely make this omelet bite recipe in bulk and then freeze them. The parchment liners are microwave safe, so you can leave them on and bag them up for the freezer to make a quick breakfast later.
If you can, use a vacuum sealer for freezing to prevent freezer burn.
Otherwise, eat them straight out of the oven. They taste delicious either way and don’t take long to make.
