Baked Denver Omelet


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.

  • Jill: Tripled for a work breakfast. Really easy and well-liked. Lot of Keto ppl so they were happy! For a disposable full-size deep pan I could easily have quadrupled and would def do that next time. January 28, 2019 at 9:27am Reply

  • Erika: Can I use the frozen diced tri color bell pepper for this dish? All of the great comments make me want to prepare this but fresh peppers at my grocer right now are SUPER expensive? Will the frozen alter the taste of texture? January 12, 2019 at 9:51am Reply

    • Jaclyn: The frozen should work fine here too. January 22, 2019 at 10:04pm Reply

  • Kata: I made a vegetarian version of this today for breakfast with friends. I added broccoli and extra cheese(1/2 cup each of cheddar and pepper jack). I didn’t have green onions but did garnish with thin slices of avocado on top. It was a hit, everyone had a second helping.Thanks for this great recipe, I will definitely make this again.
