Omelette Cupcakes

Omelete Cupcakes

Cupcake fever has set in.  While making some yummy boozy cupcakes last week, we got to experimenting with other foods.  Saw an idea on Pinterest I thought I would try out.  I’m naming these “Omelette Cupcakes” because they are whipped eggs in a cupcake pan.  THE PERFECT side to serve with brunch.
