1. Omelet Muffins

This Omelet Muffins recipe by Evi Oravecz may look fancy, especially if you call it a soufflé and serve it as a part of a beautiful dinner, but it’s actually super simple. All you need is a food processor, a few simple ingredients and some baking ramekins. You can also prepare the batter and the sautéed veggies the night before eating, then all you have to do is turn on the oven when you wake up. The muffins will rise high (as a good soufflé) and then will slowly start to sink, so get them to the table as quickly as possible. They are still delicious the next day even cold, but they won’t look that pretty anymore. The leftovers can be used as a yummy sandwich spread.
