I am so excited t share this next recipe with all of you! These breakfast omelet cups are really easy to make and seriously taste delicious. I use a cupcake tin to make them in which makes much less of a mess than a normal omelet. Enjoy this tasty breakfast.
Omelet Breakfast Bites
- 36 Tater Tots
- 1/2 cup diced Ham
- 1/2 cup diced Peppers
- 7 Eggs
- 1/4 cup Milk
- 1/4 cup shredded Cheddar Cheese
- Salt to taste
- Pepper to taste
- Preheat oven to 400.
- Grease a muffin pan liberally. These tend to stick, so you can also use a cupcake liner, but add 5 minutes to 20 minute cook time.
- Place 3 frozen tater tots in the bottom of each muffin tin and bake for 10 minutes.
- Remove and press the tots down to form a base using a glass or measuring cup.
- Return to oven and bake for 5 more minutes.
- Remove from oven.
- Reduce oven temperature to 350.
- Top each cup with about 1/2 tablespoon of diced ham and 1/2 tablespoon of diced peppers.
- Whisk together the eggs and milk and pour the mixture into each muffin tin nearly to the top.
- Sprinkle each with a little shredded cheese.
- Bake for 20 minutes or until egg is cooked.

The Omelet Breakfast Bites look delicious. Has anyone made them in advance and reheated?? We live on a lake, have tons of company year-round and these would be great to have in the freezer!
Julie saysJuly 28, 2016 at 9:14 pm
Yes, I make 12 at a time and keep
Them in a freezer bag after baking and cooling. My twins eat 2 each for breaksfast. They really stick bad, I don’t use tater
Tots but might try hash browns in the bottom next time. Hate the cleanup even when I spray the pan!
Patty saysNovember 29, 2016 at 8:16 pm
Use silicone muffin liners, they pop out like a dream!
Laura Feret saysJanuary 23, 2018 at 12:05 pm
I USE WAX PAPER!! WORKS GREAT!
Amber van dine saysAugust 22, 2018 at 12:57 pm
Wax paper in the bottom first
Nina saysJuly 23, 2017 at 10:54 am
How do you reheat the frozen ones?
Suzanne saysFebruary 24, 2018 at 5:35 pm
Try using baking pan spray. I use that when I have made stuff like this and they come right out.
Krystalin Williams saysDecember 4, 2017 at 4:25 pm
YES i MAKE SOME EVERY SUNDAY FOR THE WEEK … GREAT FOR BUSY MOM’S ON THE GO JUST HEAT AND EAT.
Sherry Anderson saysSeptember 20, 2018 at 4:28 pm
I make these all the time. I always use the parchment paper cupcake liners for easy clean up. Sometimes I add tomatoes & green onions. I always use yellow, orange or red peppers because we prefer them over the green peppers. If I want to spice them up, I use a little jalapeño or red pepper flakes like you put on pizza. We have used those little cans of shredded hormel ham, frozen heat & eat sausage crumbled up in the food processor & or bacon bits. These little suckers are amazing. I freeze them & reheat them 2 at a time in the microwave with a little water in a cup beside them so they don’t get rubbery or hard. YOU CAN’T BEAT THEM! THEY ARE DELICIOUS & NUTRITIOUS!

Thank you for sharing this review was amazing. You answered all my questions.
Miz Helen saysApril 18, 2014 at 11:15 am
What a great recipe and perfect for a crowd. Hope you have a very special weekend and thanks so much for sharing with Full Plate Thursday.
Come Back Soon!

I would also love to know how well these freeze. I’m always looking for quick things to pop in the microwave for my kiddos before school.
Teresa Minnick saysMarch 28, 2017 at 4:40 pm
I usually will try a recipe like this and put a couple in the freezer just to test for myself as to whether they freeze well. First hand experience is better than someone else’s opinion. I’m going to try this and freeze a few. My truck driver husband would love these to heat in his oven. My black lab would enjoy them if the freezing thing doesn’t work. I’m sure it will work, though.
Kristen saysApril 19, 2014 at 1:23 am
You did not give proper credit to me as the original creator of this recipe and the use of tater tots . The very least you could have done was to change the name so it wasn’t so similar. I suggest fixing these issues immediately.
Kristen saysApril 19, 2014 at 1:25 am
Also you copied my pictures as well. Fix immediately.
Jennifer saysAugust 20, 2014 at 8:54 pm
Hi, sorry to bother you but you said you are the creater. I have a question for you. do they reheat and freeze eaisy. I think my kids would love these if they do it would be a great week day breakfreast. also do you have a website with recipiese so I can follow you.
Cathy saysAugust 12, 2015 at 1:26 pm
Can someone PLEASE ANSWER THE QUESTION! Do these freeze well?!?
It has been asked nicely, we the readers are not responsible for the origination, but they look great and we would like to know if they can be frozen! Thank you!!
Sharlene saysApril 14, 2017 at 5:50 am
Someone already said YES
Steve Collins saysJune 18, 2015 at 8:52 pm
Kristen – I f you want to have more people pin your recipe, post a picture of the product, not of yourself. No wonder she has more pins from her recipe. I had to search to find yours. Don’t make people have to work so hard.
Anah saysJuly 15, 2015 at 11:03 am
That’s still no excuse to leave things you “reblog” uncredited.
Nonya saysNovember 22, 2017 at 12:18 am
I agree with Steve. The internet is free access to recipes. If you don’t want anyone to use or repost ‘your ideas’ Kristen then don’t post them. Get over yourself, you’re absolutely not the first person to use hasbrowns in a freakin egg muffin. Look in Pinterest there’s tons of the same basic recipe.
Erlene saysApril 24, 2014 at 5:55 pm
This is going on my weekend breakfast list. Thanks for sharing. Pinned.
Pam saysMay 26, 2014 at 11:21 am
Made these this AM for my house guests. Delicious and very easy to make! Just wish the tater tots didn’t stick so much to the pan. I used alot of cooking spray and used a non stick pan.
Jennifer saysAugust 17, 2015 at 9:39 am
You can “stir-fry” the tator tots (thaw them first) with the bell peppers and then throw them in the muffin tins and top with ham, egg mixture, cheese. It won’t have a crunchy crust, but they won’t stick as bad either.
connie b saysMay 28, 2014 at 8:49 am
I made these on Sunday and they were delicious! I added a few extras like mushrooms and bacon bits. Anything you would like in an omelet. I reheated one the next morning in the microwave for about 22 seconds and it was good too. I am making these ahead and using them for quick on the go breakfast meals.
Loora saysDecember 23, 2014 at 10:03 am
If the tater tots are not flattened out do they still stick so badly?
C.moon saysAugust 27, 2016 at 11:00 am
If you scrape the stuck tot and put them on top..!!
Melinda saysDecember 25, 2014 at 11:30 am
I made this for Christmas breakfast served with clementines for our family of ten. Delicious. Even the picky little ones loved it.
Lori saysDecember 31, 2014 at 7:42 am
Tell your Mom I am adopting you. The only thing I wish you would do st post the whole recipe in one block. Us old people don’t like messing around with the cutting and pasting…or ar least this old person doesn’t. I am excited to try these breakfast bites. Thank you for being nice and sharing.
Diane E saysJanuary 1, 2015 at 12:48 pm
Thanks sooo much for recipe!! Just made this for New Year’s day! Was a big hit with the large group sleeping over here! Liked that you can make it individualized…some guests were vegetarians so I omitted the ham…others didn’t want veggies…so they just got ham and cheese and potatoes at bottom was surprised hit with everyone!!
Brandy saysJanuary 24, 2015 at 2:58 pm
If you put a piece of tortilla under the tots, they don’t stick..
Cindy saysMarch 23, 2015 at 3:40 pm
That’s a brilliant idea! I would have never thought of it, but I’m sure going to give it a try when I make these for an office potluck breakfast. Thanks for the tip…..
ash saysMay 3, 2015 at 11:11 am
I used hashbrowns instead of tatertots, and garlic sausage, instead of ham. Still following the first steps of pre cooking the hashbrowns and squishing them down by using the scoop of a broken wooden ladle i had. Worked great! Thanks for the idea!!
(I also made mini ones by using the mini cupcake pan! Perfect bite sizes!)
Patricia Wolf saysJune 10, 2015 at 10:21 am
i made these for breakfast today and they are wonderful. I added fresh garlic well minced,fetta and mozarella chesse. Also added. Sweet red and yellow peppers. It was wonderful, thank you for sharing your recipe,
Michelle saysJune 13, 2015 at 10:22 am
so my daughter and I made a batch of these for breakfast this morning. We substituted pure egg whites for whole eggs and used lite cheese . The only thing we couldn’t make healthier was the tater tots, not without making the recipe a lot more complicated. Still they were very good and we will definitely make these again to take camping or on out road trip. You can eat them hot or cold, easy to pull out of the cooler and munch on.
Jennifer saysAugust 17, 2015 at 9:41 am
Pop a potato in the microwave then dice it up and put in bottom of well greased muffin tins. A little healthier than tater tots and not a lot of extra work.
Wendy M saysAugust 19, 2015 at 9:04 am
Hi everyone! Just thought I would let you all know I have been making these all summer in silicone muffin cups and it works wonderfully!! NO sticking at all!! I’ve played around with the extras for the recipes and it works every time. I have made them ahead of time and frozen them. When ready to eat popped them in the microwave to reheat for two and a half minutes on reheat.
Lou saysSeptember 10, 2018 at 11:57 am
I just bought a silicon muffin tin to make these. Have never used silicon before. So you still have to use spray?
Vicky saysSeptember 14, 2015 at 9:50 am
The hashbrowns are an adorable surprise inside! Love it!
Marilyn Hovde saysSeptember 24, 2015 at 4:58 pm
I made these and used foil cupcake liners and sprayed them with cooking sprayed them and they didn’t stick at all. I would use less peppers and more cheese but I’m not a pepper fan.
Amy saysDecember 8, 2015 at 12:13 pm
These are great! Stuck to greased tin and paper lined tin, silicon liners were great, no sticking. Green onions, green chile’s added very tasty, thousands of different ingredients to add, love these.
Ioana saysFebruary 19, 2018 at 10:52 am
These look just perfect for a weekend breakfast in bad. Too bad it’s only Monday. Can’t wait!
Ioana saysMay 11, 2018 at 9:07 am
I love having breakfast ready to grab in the mornings since I wake up very early and don’t have time to cook!
