How to make the Crawfish Omelette Egg cups
First preheat oven to 375 degrees. Next, spray 12-cup muffin pan with cooking spray.
Second, in a skillet, melt two tablespoons of butter on medium heat. Then add your cut-up veggies. Saute the vegetables until tender and translucent.
Third, lower the heat to low and add the crawfish. Stir the veggies and crawfish together.
Cook for 1 minute. Then set skillet with crawfish and veggies aside.
Fourth, in a large mixing bowl whisk together the eggs and seasoning. Set aside.
Fifth, using a teaspoon scoop some of the crawfish and vegetable mixture into each muffin cup.
Sixth, scoop a teaspoon of shredded cheese evenly over the crawfish in each of the 12-muffin cups.
Seventh, pour the egg mixture into a large measuring cup (at least a 4 cup).
Using the measuring cup divide egg mixture among the prepared muffin pan.
Fill each of the 12-muffin cups making sure the mixture doesn’t go over the top. See my photo below. Then stir the mixture with a fork.
Last, bake the egg cups for 20-22 minutes until the eggs are set and turning golden brown around the edges.
Remove the crawfish egg bites from the oven and let cool.
Use a knife to go around the edges of each muffin cup to make removing the egg bites easier. Serve the omelet egg cups while warm!
