Omelette Muffins

Google has to be one of the best places to find inspiration for new and interesting things to make in the kitchen. I was looking for something healthy to make for breakfast and found this recipe on a blog and thought it sounded good. I've tweaked it a little to make it fit my preferences and it was really easy to "throw together".
- 8 eggs
- Salt and pepper
- Filling according to taste (bell peppers, bacon, shredded cheese, spinach, onions, diced ham, tomatoes or what ever you want)
Do this:
Preheat oven to 175°C (350°F). Place cupcake moulds in a muffin pan (I tried to skip the moulds and grease the inside of my muffin pan instead, but they stuck to the sides, so I recommend that you use the moulds). Whisk your eggs in a bowl and add a pinch of salt and pepper. Make sure your eggs are beaten. Dice up you're veggies and/or meat and mix together with the egg mixture. Fill your cupcake moulds a little more than half way, so they don't overflow when the omelettes puff up. Bake in the middle of the oven for 18-20 minutes or until golden.

Vegetarian Stuffed Bell Pepper

I know the quality of the picture is bad, but I took it with my iPhone in a room with poor lighting.
I did this recipe a few weeks ago and it was so good. I've been wanting to try stuffed bell peppers for some time and it was just as tasty as I'd imagined. And it wasn't that hard to make either, which I prefer when it comes to cooking. Good food doesn't have to be hard to make.
Ingredients: (2 servings)
- 2 large bell peppers
- 100 g (≈ 3.5 oz) quorn mince
- 1 dl (≈ 0.4 cup) rice
- 1/2 onion
- 1 dl (≈ 0.4 cup) corn
- 2 tablespoon soy sauce
- 1 dl (≈ 0.4 cup) sour cream
- 1 dl (≈ 0.4 cups) shredded cheese
- Salt and peppar
Do this:
Cut the peppers in half to create a "bowl" and discard seeds and membranes. Set the top parts aside and cook the bottom halves in boiling water for about 5 minutes. Keep the saucepan uncovered. Turn the peppers upside down in a strainer to drain well. Preheat oven to 175°C (350°F). Cook rice according to the instructions on the box. Chop the onion and the rest of the peppers into small pieces and fry in a skillet together with quorn mince and corn, until cooked through and tender. Add the cooked rice, soy sauce and sour cream to skillet and stir well for a few minutes, while still on the stove. Season to taste. Stuff the "bowls" with quorn/rice mixture and sprinkle shredded cheese on top. Place the peppers in an ovenproof dish, cover with tin foil and bake in the middle of the oven for 30 minutes.

Broccoli Gratin

To cook dinner for just one person, usually isn't any fun, so I try to make quick and easy recipes. Last night I made broccoli gratin, which was really simple to "throw together". I made enough so I could get both for dinner yesterday and for lunch today.
Ingredients: (4 servings)
- 500 g (≈ 17.5 oz) fresh or frozen broccoli
- 280 g (≈ 10 oz) bacon
- 2 dl (≈ 0.8 cups) cream
- 2 dl (≈ 0.8 cups) shredded cheese
- 2 egg
- Salt and pepper
Do this:
Preheat the oven to 200°C (400°F). Divide the broccoli into smaller pieces, while bringing water to a boil in a saucepan. When water is boiling, add broccoli and remove the sauce pan from the stove. Let the broccoli "rest" in the water for 3 minutes. Fry bacon in a skillet till it gets a nice color and has been cooked through. Mix cream, shredded cheese, egg and salt and pepper in a bowl. Put broccoli and bacon in an ovenproof dish and pour the cream mixture over. Bake in the oven for about 15-20 minutes, depending on your oven.
