3 Years Old

December 7, 2011


Three years ago, on April 29, 2008 to be exact, I made these omelet muffins.

I’ve been considering them for dinners ever since and have no idea why they haven’t actually made it to my plate because they are DAlicious!

Super super easy too – just mix a batter of eggs, whole wheat flour, cottage cheese, flax plus mix-ins of your choice [smoked salmon + dill for me!] and bake.



Transportable. Easily reheated. Morphable. Nutritious!


The smoked salmon adds tons of flavor, but you could make these with all kinds of flavors: nuts, cheeses, bacon, veggies…


While the muffins baked, I sautéed some green beans in lemon juice, dill and dijon mustard.


And toasted a Honey Whole Wheat roll – filled with a pat of butter


See that empty seat :( Matt found a rain leak at the bakery and was a little late coming home. But at least when he arrived dinner was waiting for him.


He brought a surprise for me too – a slice of Chocolate Peppermint Oh! This MAY be even better than the Pumpkin Oh thanks to the crunch of peppermint pieces…mmmm!


I hear Lord of the Rings music playing – I think Return of the King is on [we never finished it].

LOTR or Hunger Games…hmmmm…

3 Lynn @ the actor's diet December 7, 2011 at 10:03 pm

Geez. I remember you making those muffins. I’ve been reading a long time!


4 jojo December 7, 2011 at 10:03 pm

I’ll definitely have to try this easy recipe! I’m thinking spinach and mushroom inside since I have it on hand… mmmm… 😛


5 kathleen @ the daily crumb December 7, 2011 at 10:04 pm

i love that the blog let’s you see exactly what was going on in life any given day!

these omelette muffins are the best… i have tried them a few times since i saw them on your blog (3 years ago!)


6 Kaila @healthyhelperblog! December 7, 2011 at 10:09 pm

Omlette muffins!?!?! These look so goood!!! I love the addition of cottage cheese!!!


7 Abby @ Abz 'n' Oats December 7, 2011 at 10:13 pm

The peppermint chocolate oh sounds so much better than the pumpkin version! :) Yum!


8 Christina @ Just Running December 7, 2011 at 10:15 pm

Three years old! My little boy turns three next week.

That dessert looks delicious. What do you like to bake for birthdays?


9 KathEats December 7, 2011 at 10:19 pm

do you mean personally or at the bakery? We don’t make cakes at the bakery, but I like to make a layer cake about once a year at home!


10 Christina @ Just Running December 7, 2011 at 10:28 pm

Is that recipe posted anywhere?


11 KathEats December 7, 2011 at 10:54 pm

I linked to it in the post! Second line or so?


12 Andrea December 7, 2011 at 10:59 pm

I think she means a link to the recipe of the layer cake that you make, maybe?


13 Christina @ Just Running December 7, 2011 at 11:20 pm

Yes, I meant the cake recipe. :)


14 KathEats December 8, 2011 at 10:01 am

Oh sorry!!! Didn’t see the context :)

I guess that was before the blog days – I don’t even remember the recipe I used, but here’s a photo of the cake:


And here was a cupcake one:


I guess it’s not an annual thing after all :)


15 Katie @ Peace Love and Oats December 7, 2011 at 10:15 pm

I made those a couple months ago! So good!!


16 Jen December 7, 2011 at 10:16 pm

They look so cute! Do you add oil to the pan when you saute the beans or just the juice?

I say Matt should be late more often if he brings home those rolls! :)


17 KathEats December 7, 2011 at 10:19 pm

Just juice this time


18 Kelli H (Made in Sonoma) December 7, 2011 at 10:18 pm

Everything looks so tasty!


19 Kinley @ Better Off Barefoot December 7, 2011 at 10:18 pm

Great idea!!! And my sister just made peppermint brownies that are for a party so I can’t eat them… this chocolate peppermint stuff is just taunting me left and right!


20 kristen @ verbs and vignettes December 7, 2011 at 10:22 pm

whaaaaat? what a cute little dinner idea. i’d love to try these… i can’t imagine which way the taste would go – muffin-y, eggy, maybe even pancake-y from the flour… too much. haha.


21 Jamie C. December 7, 2011 at 10:22 pm

Those omelette muffins are soo good! I make a few versions for breakfast and love them! I really need to try a dinner variety! That peppermint roll looks ammmaaaazzzinggg! Might need to head to GH tomorrow to see if mine has anything like it! Happy Hump Dayevening :)


22 Claire December 7, 2011 at 10:22 pm

Oh my goodness, the rain has been so heavy hasn’t it? I wish it was snow (that’s the northerner in me saying that 😉 I hope y’all took care of the leak!! Stay dry!


23 Maria @ Maria Makes Muffins December 7, 2011 at 10:22 pm

I make really similar egg white muffins on a weekly basis for easy afternoon snacks while the little one naps. I absolutely LOVE them! Actually, I might go grab a couple of them right now.


24 Jennifer December 7, 2011 at 10:35 pm

I bet that bread is amazing!!

I heard positive reviews of the Hunger Games on NPR. It is highly recommended.


25 Averie @ Love Veggies and Yoga December 7, 2011 at 10:41 pm

For me, the new Chocolate Peppermint Oh! would trump the pumpkin b/c I do like pumpkin but I LOVE peppermint.

And I love that with blogs, you can go back in time and determine EXACTLY when you posted something…and boy, these look…perfect. My hubs would do anything for me I’m thinking if I made him those. TOTALLY right up his alley!


26 Sam December 7, 2011 at 10:57 pm

Crazy that in the first recipe you used fat free cream cheese. I doubt if you would even touch that ingredient now, eh?


27 KathEats December 8, 2011 at 10:01 am

I know! times have changed


28 Gina @ Running to the Kitchen December 7, 2011 at 11:10 pm

Hunger games!! 3 years seems way too long to have gone without those. They look delicious!


29 Jamie @ Don't Forget the Cinnamon December 7, 2011 at 11:11 pm

I LOVE omelet muffins! I make them all the time and they’re perfect as a salad topper for lunch or on their own for a quick snack! I’ve never added flour or cottage cheese to mine though…I usually go for parmigiana, spinach, roasted reds, and various seasoning!


30 Jessica @ The Process of Healing December 7, 2011 at 11:16 pm

Hunger Games!
And that cake roll looks oh so good!


31 Christine @ Oatmeal in my Bowl December 8, 2011 at 12:03 am

I finally finished return of the king! Way good movie but there was always something that kept me from finishing it. They really did good with those movies. Heard they in the works to making The Hobbit. Can’t wait. First chapter book I read as a child.


32 Jules December 8, 2011 at 12:06 am

That looks delicious!!! I’ll have to try a gluten free version of them sometime. (And I vote The Hunger Games!!!)


33 Katelyn @ Chef Katelyn December 8, 2011 at 12:07 am

I vant cekke.


34 Khushboo December 8, 2011 at 1:06 am

I love omelet muffins–> they make a fab on-the-go anytime meal!


35 Erin December 8, 2011 at 2:51 am

Chocolate and mint is my favorite and I rarely get it because my husband hates that combo!


36 J3nn (Jenn's Menu and Lifestyle Blog) December 8, 2011 at 3:34 am

I’ve been meaning to make egg muffins forever too! They always look so delish and easy to make.


37 Clare @ SweetnSimple December 8, 2011 at 5:53 am

Ohh yum I’m making those muffins tomorrow!


38 Hannah @ eat, drink and save money December 8, 2011 at 6:51 am

Eating breakfast right now, but these look so much more delish! I may have to make some for next weeks bkfst.


39 Fran@ Broken Cookies Don't Count December 8, 2011 at 7:03 am

The muffins sound wonderful, I’ll have to try them!! And the chocolate peppermint oh sounds pretty incredible too!


40 Susan H. @ the food allergy chronicles December 8, 2011 at 7:34 am

I am baking a Dairy, Egg, and Peanut/Tree Nut Free Chocolate Yule Log for Christmas…peppermint sounds like a nice addition. Will pass it by the kids. Looks yummy!


41 Lauren @ What Lauren Likes December 8, 2011 at 7:44 am

Aww these look fantastic! I am trying them this morning :)


42 The Mrs @ Success Along the Weigh December 8, 2011 at 7:56 am

Those look wonderful and I love how versatile they are so you can change ’em up! A night of great surprises for both of you! :-)


43 Lauren @ Oatmeal after Spinning December 8, 2011 at 8:13 am

Oooh I love these savory muffins- and the idea of adding BACON. I’m on it!!
Hope the leak got fixed- thank goodness the rain is OUT OF HERE for a while!


44 Rebecca @ Naturally Healthy and Gorgeous December 8, 2011 at 8:20 am

Those would make great portable breakfasts!


45 Joelle (On A Pink Typewriter) December 8, 2011 at 8:30 am

These sound like a great idea! Super quick and easy bfast to have prepped, too!


46 Chelsea @ One Healthy Munchkin December 8, 2011 at 8:35 am

I just made egg muffins over the weekend and I loved them! They were such a fun way to eat eggs.


47 Heather H December 8, 2011 at 8:38 am

Can I come eat dinner at your house? Lol


48 Hope @ With A Side Of Hope December 8, 2011 at 8:42 am

Those muffins are so cute! That is an interesting way to enjoy eggs! That chocolate peppermint oh looks delicious :)


49 Sally @ Spontaneous Hausfrau December 8, 2011 at 8:47 am

That Chocolate Peppermint Oh would be a Chocolate Peppermint No in my house because there would be nothing left of it in short time. It looks delish!


50 Angel7 December 8, 2011 at 9:10 am

I am going to make your omelet muffins recipe for breakfast this morning. Thanks for giving me an idea! I am always looking for new breakfast ideas.



51 Maria @ Sinfully Nutritious December 8, 2011 at 9:22 am

I am determined to make an egg free version of these. I will let you know how they turn out! :)


52 Molly @ RDexposed December 8, 2011 at 9:23 am

Ooo those would be great for a brunch! Do most GH make the peppermint roll? I really need to make a trip to ours.


53 Annette @ EnjoyYourHealthyLife December 8, 2011 at 9:30 am

LOTR. SO awesome. The book can wait–even though I really liked that one as well….hmmm.


54 Allison O'Mara (A Girl in her kitchen) December 8, 2011 at 9:52 am

Those muffins look delicious! We watched LOTR Return of the King last night, too!


55 Becca December 8, 2011 at 12:19 pm

I love your leaf plate! Too cute.


56 Jenn December 8, 2011 at 12:23 pm

Hunger Games! They are all 3 soooo good! And, pretty quick and easy reads. Then you can go back to LOTR:)


57 Allison December 8, 2011 at 1:02 pm

So many good looking eats- wish I was at the dinner table with you! They almost sound like mini soufflés or quiches?! And that bread, they better have it at our local Great Harvest or I’m gonna have to ask you to ship me a loaf 😛


58 Kelly December 8, 2011 at 1:10 pm

Quick question, texturally what are these muffins like? I know the recipe has omelette in the title but was just curious. Since there are no leveners in them I would imagine they wouldn’t be quite as airy as a traditional muffin but was curious if they were closer to the texture of a muffin or an omelette.


59 KathEats December 8, 2011 at 1:42 pm

They’re very similar to a well-cooked omelet – possibly a tiny bit spongier?


60 Michelle @ Turning Over a New Leaf December 12, 2011 at 11:15 am

Yep, definitely have a variation of these in the oven right now. :) I used more egg and organic cheddar instead of cottage cheese (we don’t like cottage cheese). I also used soy flour instead of whole wheat (gluten free here, and not allowed to have grains in the morning per naturopath instructions), and more flax meal. And no salmon because I don’t have any. But I did have dill so that went in there too! They smell really good! I’ve been wanting to find more quick, creative, high-protein breakfast options that don’t depend on meat. :)


61 Michelle @ Turning Over a New Leaf December 12, 2011 at 11:17 am

Oh! And I made a version of that chocolate peppermint log the other day! My friends called it a giant swiss roll, but so much better. 😉 I was surprised to find that many of those roll-type desserts (including the one I made) are flourless! Hurrah for me!
