Savory Omelet Cups
Total TimePrep: 40 min. Bake: 10 min.
- 1/4 cup sun-dried tomatoes (not packed in oil)
- 1/2 cup water, divided
- 3 eggs
- 6 egg whites
- 2 tablespoons minced fresh cilantro
- 4 teaspoons butter, melted
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/4 teaspoon pepper
- 1/3 cup shredded provolone cheese
- 1 cup chopped leeks (white portion only)
- 2 green onions, chopped
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 2 tablespoons chopped Greek olives
- 2 teaspoons minced fresh oregano or 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
- 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
- 1 tablespoon honey
- Place tomatoes in a small bowl. Cover with 1/4 cup water; let stand 30 minutes.
- Meanwhile, in a large bowl, whisk eggs, egg whites, cilantro, butter, salt, pepper and remaining water.
- Heat an 8-in. nonstick skillet coated with cooking spray; pour about 1/2 cup egg mixture into center of skillet. Lift and tilt pan to evenly coat bottom. Cook for 1-1/2 to 2 minutes or until top appears dry; turn and cook 30-45 seconds longer or until set.

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.

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!
