Parmesan prawn Omelette Muffins

It’s an all-day breakfast dish and it’s a portable food that can be brought to picnics. These palm-sized omelettes can be stored in the fridge overnight and reheated in the microwave the next day. They are delicious. And they have everything in them too — protein, vegetables and dairy.
