Keeping it Simple in the Kitchen ~ Easy Omelet Breakfast Muffin {Recipe}

Mornings around here are generally pretty crazy. Because we work full-time and homeschool on top of that, we’re generally up and at it pretty early, getting ready to start our day. Probably the most important thing to really get our day started right is a good, nutritious breakfast. I’m about to share my husband’s delicious recipe with you for an Easy Omelet Breakfast Muffin…. you’ll never look at breakfast sandwiches the same again after trying this bad boy. Mmmm, I’m hungry just thinking about it.Easy Omelet Breakfast Muffin {MamaBuzz}

First, though, how do you simplify your morning routine, your kitchen, meals, etc.? We’ve simplified the morning routine by sharing the workload in the mornings. Generally, I’ll get laundry going and get lesson plans written down for the day. Dan has taken on the chore of making breakfast almost every weekday morning, and I can’t even tell you how much smoother our day goes because of that. Another way we’ve simplified our kitchen is that we make sure we keep important ingredients and staples on hand, as well as healthy snacks for the boys (within their reach and in a designated spot).

Speaking of ingredients, let’s talk about our easy breakfast recipe. We first made these breakfast sandwiches while camping last summer in the Smoky Mountains; that’s how easy they are. Below is a printable recipe, without photos, for your convenience.

Start by gathering your ingredients…. eggs, Pineapple Ham (or any type of ham will work), salsa, cheese, Land O  Lakes® Butter with Canola Oil, and English muffins. Land O Lakes® Butter with Canola OilStart by adding a bit of Land O Lakes® Butter with Canola Oil to your skillet, letting it sizzle and melt. The great thing about this butter is that it’s made with only 3 simple ingredients: sweet cream, canola oil, and salt. Don’t you just love the sound of sweet cream? Did you notice they’re all easy to read ingredients? It contains no artificial ingredients, definitely a plus, something we’re becoming more and more conscious of as we buy groceries. I also like that it’s made by Land O’Lakes, a farmer-owned cooperative that’s been around for more than 90 years.

When the butter has melted, add eggs, one by one, also breaking the yolks. After the eggs have cooked somewhat, add a spoon of salsa to each one.

Add ham to skillet, just warming ’til slightly crisp around the edges.Warm ham in skillet until crisp around edges

Meanwhile, toast English muffins, adding easily spread Land O Lakes® Butter with Canola Oil to each toasted muffin. Spreadable Land O Lakes® Butter with Canola Oil on English MuffinThat’s another great thing about this butter is that it’s spreadable right out of the refrigerator. It’s oh so creamy and tastes so good. Once you’ve buttered your English muffins, add cheesy omelets and a thin slice of warmed ham, forming a breakfast sandwich fit for a queen.

This is definitely one of our favorite easy breakfast meals; it’s so quick and easy to make. Plus, we’re not starving by 10 am. It’s very filling. It could also be made healthier by only using egg whites, just another option.Easy Omelet Breakfast Muffin made with Land O Lakes® Butter with Canola Oil

Land O’Lakes’ farm families take pride in the butter they help produce because we take pride in what we feed our families. Dan and I definitely take pride in this recipe, and I’m excited to share it with you to maybe simplify your morning with an easy, delicious breakfast. I hope you enjoy!
