Mickey Mouse Egg Omelets

I’m taking a few weeks off from the blog to spend some time with our little man and learn how to survive on 3 hours of sleep and baby giggles. While I’m away, some generous friends have offered to share their mad blogging skills here on NeighborFood. Today, I’m excited to introduce Β you to Ala of Wallflour Girl. Ala’s blog is a pool of sunshine. She’s one of my favorite storytellers, and I always leave her blog with a smile on my face. Case in point: these ridiculously fun Mickey Mouse Omelets you can make in your waffle iron!

Mickey Mouse Egg Omelettes 3--071715

Growing up, our house was chock full of Disney paraphernalia: classic Disney VCR tapes here, Ariel candles there, the obligatory Winnie-the-Pooh plushies sitting on top of our piano, right next to my Pochahontas and Lilo & Stitch stuffed collections. In our hallway, there even hung a framed portrait of Mickey Mouse from my mom’s old Disney days that, I later learned, was actually a rather rare reproduction of the same portrait that hung in Walt Disney’s animation office. (Say whaaat?)

Mickey Mouse was such a big part of my childhood, I honestly couldn’t imagine growing up without him and the rest of the Disney crew. That’s why, when Courtney asked if I would guest post on her blog during this exciting time with her little one, I knew exactly what recipe I wanted to share. Because let’s be honest: is there anything more emblematic of childhood happiness than this little round-eared, adorable mouse?

No, I didn’t think so, either 8:) <–those are supposed to be cute Mickey ears on a smiley face, FYI

Mickey Mouse Egg Omelettes 1--071715

When I was little, on those rare occasions when we would sit down to eat an American-style weekend brunch, my mom would draw little ketchup smiley faces on our eggs before handing them over to us. There’s something about seeing silly smiles on your food that makes it infinitely better to eat, right?

Case in point: I was grinning from ear to mouse ear when these Mickey Mouse omelettes came out perfectly. And who wouldn’t?

Of course, you can make these in a regular waffle iron and draw your own funny faces on it with ketchup! Hope your day’s as bright a one as these smiley little bites!

Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 1/2 onion, chopped
  • 1/2 green bell pepper, chopped

  3. Close lid on waffle iron and cook until your light indicates that your omelette is done.

    These look GREAT! I’m going to try them in my regular waffle iron, since I am not lucky enough to have a Mickey iron. πŸ™‚ or should I say 8:)

      Seriously, how cute is this?! I don’t have little ones so I don’t have a Mickey iron. I guess my regular one will have to do! πŸ™‚

    My nanny kiddos would go crazy over these! Can I somehow stuff the omelets with green beans, cucumbers, and mashed potatoes to get them to eat their least favorite foods?! πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚
