MY MISTER COOKS // DENVER OMELET CUPS

.

Last weekend the mister and boy got up early. Um, wait, scratch that, let me rephrase... Last weekend the boy (who always wakes up early) woke up at the crack of dawn, as usual, and the mister kindly rolled outta bed, half way awake, to join him. After being up for a bit, they decided to make us (miss P and I were lazybones and still sleeping in bed) breakfast. They prepared these oh so delicious Denver Omelet Cups, yum, yum, YUM!!! We love our Martha Stewart everyday day food issues. Yah know, those tiny little magazines jam packed with tasty goodness. I think they're one of the best little cooking magazines which we turn to often to find quick and easy recipe ideas for the week. So here you have it, yet again, another fabulous meal by Martha the Mister & boy. Enjoy & Happy Weekend!

DENVER OMELET CUPS  
(Approx Time 30 Minutes // Serves 6)

Ingredients
5 teaspoons unsalted butter
4 cups frozen hash browns (1 pound), thawed
Coarse salt and ground pepper
1/2 small red onion, diced small
1 small red bell pepper, stemmed, seeded, and diced small
4 ounces ham steak, diced small
3 ounces cheddar, grated (3/4 cup)
8 large eggs

Directions
Preheat oven to 475 degrees. Coat 6 nonstick jumbo muffin cups with 1/2 teaspoon butter. In a large microwave-safe bowl, melt 4 teaspoons butter. Add hash browns and 2 egg whites; season with salt and pepper and mix thoroughly. Place 1/2 cup mixture into each muffin cup, firmly pressing into bottom and up side of each cup. Bake 15 minutes.

Meanwhile, in a small nonstick skillet, melt 1/2 teaspoon butter over medium. Add red onion, bell pepper, and ham steak. Cook, stirring occasionally, until onion is softened, about 7 minutes. Season with salt and pepper. Divide vegetable mixture evenly among cups and top with cheddar. Bake 2 minutes. Remove from oven and crack 1 egg into each cup. Season with salt and pepper and bake until whites are set but yolks are still runny, 8 to 10 minutes. With a small offset spatula, remove cups from pan and serve immediately.

Extra Note In place of ham steak, you could swap with crumbled sausage, bacon pieces, diced turkey or maybe go vegetarian with extra peppers, onions or maybe even mushrooms too.

The mister does not care for runny eggs so he made his a scrambled one instead.

  2. Yummy! I don't fancy runny eggs much either, but the runny one definitely looks better!
