Potato & Omelet Breakfast Muffins

I'm spotlighting this post for anyone who’s busy but wants to keep the breakfast habit. At the time of writing this post, I’m a busy technical engineer/food blogger who need to plan ahead for a breakfast. 
So I’m beginning to understand the importance of quick breakfasts on hand. That’s why in my fridge, you’ll see breakfast muffins like this in a plastic container, waiting to be heated up in the morning. 



Okay, some of you know it and others might have guessed, I’m one of those insanely people who sometimes often sacrifices breakfast for an extra minute or two in bed. It does help that I am able to get breakfast at work but it is never as good as homemade. Nothing can beat some scrambled egg beaters with ham and peppers, mushrooms, garlic ….some homefries…toast and muffins…YUM!
So I am constantly browsing the internet and my favorite food blogs to find some healthy recipes that I can make ahead for those rushed morning when I don’t have time to make or sit down and eat breakfast.

I wanted a muffin that we could enjoy for breakfast without feeling that we actually were eating dessert in the morning. therefore i am so delighted with this recipe because it makes the perfect breakfast muffins that you can just grab when you are on the go, plus you can sneak all kinds of healthy things into your Breakfast muffins like : spinach, mushrooms, onion, tomatoes, basil, zucchini, squash, etc.
