These really are easy, and a fun way to offer a variety of omelets at either your next brunch or on a creative weekend morning with the kids. They’re also good heated up the next day, if you want a quick, to-go breakfast. I didn’t use tater tots as the cups’ base—ours were egg and filling only, and quite delicious!
