Baked Denver Omelet

05.14.2015

Is it an omelet or an omlette? Apparently it’s both but I’m just going to go with omelet because it’s shorter. I already have spelling probs then they’ve got to go and throw in two different versions for words, the madness! :) More importantly though is how delicious this Baked Denver Omelet is!

I used to make omelets all the time but I think I stopped because now I have 4 people to cook for instead of just one. So now, the majority of the time I just go with scrambled eggs and I top them with sliced avocados. Now that I’ve discovered baked omelets though it’s likely going to become the way I make eggs much of the time. My whole family loved this oven baked version and it was so easy to make. Plus you most definitely don’t need to be a pro omelet shaper, you just add it all to a baking dish pop it in the oven and voila! A delicious low carb meal your whole family will love! Not to mention it’s a very versatile recipe, if you don’t like those veggies listed choose some you do and if you’d like swap out that ham for bacon or sausage or omit it for a (lacto-ovo) vegetarian omelet.

  • Michelle: Making breakfast is NOT my favorite thing (lol)… but I am IN LOVE with this recipe! My mom makes a breakfast casserole and it is SO bad for you so I don’t like to make it too often . I had never found the right recipe for me until now. I made this this morning and it came out perfect! I even topped it with slices of avocado chives and even a dash of hot sauce like you suggested and was so delicious. I will definitely be making this for my family again.

  • Jenna: Made this for dinner tonight and it was delicious! So much easier than making an omelet in a pan. I did cut the recipe by half, used an 8 X 8 pan – turned out great! May 19, 2015 at 10:32pm Reply

  • Mahdiya -Madz’s Kitchen-: This looks healthy and yummy (will just omit the ham as we don’t eat it). I think I need to tell my mum about this as she has just committed herself to eating healthy ;) May 15, 2015 at 6:16pm Reply
