Savory Omelet Cups Recipe

Publisher Photo
I replaced the pastry portion of this recipe with a light crepe-like cup. Baked in tiny oven-proof dishes, they're filled with cheese, leeks, scallions, olives and sun-dried tomatoes. My son, a vegetarian, always asks for them. —Joan Churchill of Dover, New Hampshire

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jun. 24, 2014

This sound and look wonderful. If making for a larger crowd, could they be put together night before, refrigerated and just baked in the morning. I would love to try this for some overnight guests we are having.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jul. 20, 2010

Wonderful recipe, my family was very impressed with the presentation. I substituted monterey jack for the provolone, since I already had some on hand. I omitted the tomato/olive mixture on my children's omelet cups, but I loved it! But I think the crowning item in this recipe is the drizzle of honey. I was skeptical, but it gave this savory dish a hint of sweetness!
