Did you know that September is National Family Meals month? I didn’t either, but it’s a pretty awesome movement. You always hear me talking about ways to squeeze in easy home cooked meals for my family (enter Bacon & Cheddar Omelet Cups). But, it’s one of the biggest challenges that I face here at home.
The thing is, growing up, we ate almost every single meal together as a family. It’s literally woven into my very being. I’m not alone in my struggle to rally up the family for a meal, are you in those shoes too? The FMI Family Meals program is something I’m learning more about right now. It’s mission is to promote more family meals through encouragement and suggestions.
Come to find out, the importance of eating family meals is so much more than just great conversation. It’s also been shown to benefit the health and wellness of children and teens as well as fight obesity and even substance abuse. Hormel Foods is a supporter of National Family Meals month they provide Easy Recipe Ideas to inspire more meals around your family table.
As a part of this mission, I made an easy breakfast solution for my own family using Hormel Black Label® Bacon which is extra thick quality bacon. Making Bacon & Cheddar Omelet Cups is just so easy and everyone is sure to love them. Plus you can make multiple batches that can be warmed any day and even frozen for extra busy mornings.
- 10 Medium Eggs
- 6 Thick Slices of Pre-Cooked Hormel Black Label bacon chopped or crumbled
- 2 Tbsp. Butter Margarine melted
- 1/4 cup water
- 1 Cup Shredded Cheddar Cheese
- salt & pepper to taste
Preheat your oven to 375°. Spray a standard muffin tin with non-stick cooking spray generously. In a large bowl, beat the eggs, butter or margerine, water and salt & pepper until blended. Gently stir in the remaining ingredients. Evenly pour mixture into muffin cups – about 3/4ths of the way full. Bake for approximately 16-18 minutes or until the egg is cooked through. Cool and remove omelet cups from the muffin tin. Serve.
So easy to make!
