We love omelettes and I recently learned how to make them perfectly. Unfortunately, when you are making them for the whole family it takes a while because you can only make one at a time, unless you use multiple pans. I decided to try out baking an omelette in the oven so everyone’s portion is done at the same time. It turned out great, like a cross between crustless quiche and your traditional omelette. We all really enjoyed it and it’s such an easy recipe to customize.
Just start with you base: eggs, milk, cheese, and ham and add on from there. Adding in spinach and tomatoes works really well because it doesn’t change the taste or texture of the omelette at all but it does add in some extra nutrition. If you like the taste of a Denver omelette you could add in some sautéed onions, peppers, and/or mushrooms. Those veggies do change the taste a little so that’s really all a matter of preference. You could add in other veggies like broccoli or sweet potato. You could leave out the ham and/or add in bacon or sausage. Get creative and make it your own! If your family prefers things more simple just make the base recipe and leave out the extras. Either way, your family is sure to love this simple and tasty recipe.
