Omelet Made Easy – Guest Post

by tdomf_91172 on March 25, 2010

I’m thrilled to be guest posting for Erin today, especially after having had the honor of meeting her in person recently. If you’ve never had the pleasure and wonder what she’s like, I have to tell you she is every bit as sweet and fun as she seems and then some! My only complaint is that she made me give her sweet baby boy back! (Erin here…you are too much Christy!)

In the spirit of $5 Dinners (Don’t ya just love her cookbook?) I thought I’d bring you my Omelet Made Easy, a quick fix supper that can be made in a flash and easily accommodates leftovers as the add ins!

I hope you enjoy it as much as we do.

Gratefully,
Christy

Easy Oven Omelet

Ingredients

* 8 eggs
* 1 Cup shredded cheddar cheese
* 1/2 Cup milk
* 1 Cup chopped ham
* 1 Cup diced onion and bell pepper blend (to save money, I buy this frozen at around $1.50 per bag) Erin here…or sometimes less!  I see these often on sale for $1 up here…”in the north!” ;)

Directions

In large mixing bowl, beat eggs. Add milk and all other ingredients. Beat until well combined and pour into 8×8 baking dish. Bake in a 350 degree oven for about forty minutes, or until it no longer wiggles in the middle when you shake it a bit.

Customize your omelet! Substitute a cup of your favorite veggies (or leftover veggies!) for the onion and bell pepper blend, use your favorite shredded cheese in place of the cheddar, and add in bacon or sausage in place of the ham – or leave it out altogether!

What an easy way to make an omelet!!
I was wondering, since it’s just me and my husband, can you halve this recipe? And if so, what size dish would you suggest using?

@Carrie,

What about making it as is…eating half for one meal, then turning the other half into breakfast tacos. Just break apart the eggs and roll up in a tortilla?!? An idea!

I love SouthernPlate.com! Two of her recipes that my family LOVES is Bama Steak Sandwiches and Taco Pizza. I’m sure this omelet will become a favorite, too!

This has one of my favorite recipe items — flexibility! This opens so many opportunities to personalize. Yep, I’m copying it — and will use for company coming over Easter weekend.

I made this on Friday for dinner with leftover sliced turkey. I served it with fruit and blueberry muffins. It’s just the two of us and my husband enjoyed the leftovers for lunch on Saturday. We loved it!
