Serve your omelet as a cupcake omelet-cupcakes

Perhaps, I ought to declare this week as I Love Eggs! Week. After posting the Thai egg strips recipe, I remembered that I had this old recipe for omelet cooked as cupcakes but published (yes, probably mis-filed) in my other blog (and I’m pretty sure you’ve never seen it). So, I thought I’d move the recipe over here to make the I Love Eggs! Week experience complete.

How to make these omelet cupcakes:


  • vegetable oil, for brushing
    1 large onion
    2 bell peppers
    1 tbsp. of vegetable oil, for sauteing
    6 eggs
    sardines in oil
    salt and pepper, to taste
    2 tbsps. of finely sliced onion leaves, optional


  1. Preheat the oven to 375oF.

    Lightly brush 10 cupcake tins with vegetable oil (I used silicone cups so I skipped this part).

    Chop the onion and bell peppers. Saute in vegetable oil until they start to turn soft, about 3 minutes.

    Beat the eggs in a large bowl. Stir in the sardines, well-drained, (break them up to fit into the pans), some salt, pepper and the sauteed onion and bell peppers. Add some finely sliced onion leaves, if you like.

    Spoon the mixture into the oiled cupcake tins, about 4/5 full. Bake in the preheated oven for 10 to 12 minutes or until firm and lightly browned.

Cooking time (duration): 25 minutes

    Hi! Have you made this recipe using something else other than sardines? What kind of meat and how much of it? Thanks!

    This is a really nifty idea! My mom used to make breakfast omelet/scrambled eggs with either onions or tomatoes. I shall try your idea using my mom’s variants.

    You should write a cookbook, I mean, this whole blog’s one already (complete with good pics and all).
