Omelet and Potato Breakfast Bites

To make these yummy cups of deliciousness, first, preheat your oven to 400 degrees and make sure you grease your muffin tins really well, making sure to get both the sides and bottom {Update: A few readers had trouble with these sticking to the pan and have offered the following suggestions: Either use a stoneware pan or use the cooking spray that has flour in it. Thanks for the pointers!!}. Throw your tater tots in the microwave for a couple minutes to thaw. Then, place 3 in each standard size muffin tin. Take a small cup and squish them flat into the bottom of each tin. 

Bake your tater tots for 10 minutes. While you are waiting for them to cook, you can gather and chop up the rest of your ingredients. This time I used red and green peppers, and 2 of the awesome Farmland precooked meats~ sausage links and diced ham. One of the reasons I love this recipe so much is because you can sneak all kinds of healthy things into your Breakfast bites. Other ideas include: spinach, mushrooms, onion, tomatoes, basil, zucchini, squash, etc.

After removing your tots from the oven, lower oven temperature to 350 degrees. Sprinkle your toppings over each cup. I love that this meat is precooked because it saves so much time. 

Whip together 8 eggs and 1/4 cup milk with a fork. 
Pour your egg mixture in each tin. 
Sprinkle a little cheddar cheese on top of each cup.
Bake at 350 degrees for about 20 minutes, or until the egg is cooked through. To remove from the pan, I ran a butter knife around the edge of each one to loosen it from the sides, and used a fork to pop them out.

Oh my goodness these are really delicious.  I love that you can make them in about 35 minutes, and be prepared for many mornings worth of breakfasts. I just keep them in the freezer and pop one in the microwave for a couple of minutes whenever we want a warm, yummy and filling breakfast. It is so much healthier than getting food on the go somewhere else!
