Mini Omelets in the Instant Pot

This isn’t a recipe so much as just a show-and-tell.  I was doing some experimenting with these adorable little Silicone baking cups making mini-omelets for supper and for storing for quick breakfast sandwiches.  I made a variety of them using beaten eggs, cheese, Tastefully Simple Bacon BaconOnion Onion and some leftover meat and vegetables.  I used steamer basket and placed the baking cups around the bottom and filled them with the filling.  I set the pot to MANUAL and used the +/- buttons to select 10 minutes of pressure.  When the pressure cycle was over, I did a quick pressure release and then sprinkled some shredded cheese on top and put the lid back on for a couple of minutes to melt the cheese.  In no time at all, I had a bag full of mini omelets that can be put on a bagel or English muffin for a breakfast sandwich!  The omelets just slide right out of the silicone cups so clean up is simple.  Just wanted to share the procedure with you!wp-1473425195722.jpgwp-1473425195719.jpgwp-1473425195949.jpgwp-1473425195977.jpgwp-1473425196024.jpg

    I know this is an old post, but I did have some questions. How much water did you put into the bottom of the Instant Pot (so that it would come to pressure)? Did you set the steam basket on top of a rack so it woudn’t touch the water? Also, where is the actual recipe with the list of ingredients and the amounts you used? Thank you.

    1. For something like this, I use one cup of water in the bottom. The steamer just made it easy to lift in and out–you could use the trivet that came with the pot if that is easier. As I noted in the blog, I didn’t really use a recipe, I was just sharing the “how.” Generally I just mix several eggs, a small amount of milk and some cheese with seasoning together and pour it into the silicone cups. It would depend on how many you are making how many eggs and the other ingredients are proportionate to the eggs. Basically you are just making scrambled eggs and pouring that mixture into the cups.

    Hi there,

    I’m a writer for and I’m doing a roundup of Christmas morning breakfast recipes to make in the Instant Pot. I’d love to include your recipe.

    With your permission, I’d use one photo, credited to you, and i’ll link back to the post. I won’t include the recipe.

    Please let me know if that’s okay.
