Breakfast Baked Omelet

            Omelettes are one of my favorite breakfast foods that I can eat for any meal. Between pancakes and this omelette recipe, I would be set to only ever eat breakfast. This recipe is so easy to make and a lot less work than trying to make a bunch of omelettes when you feel only half awake. As I have previously stated, I am learning to control my weight and my appetite. Not easy when you blog about food. Strangely, eggs were always hard for me to eat when I was younger. I have learned great ways of cooking them perfectly now.

            This recipe is a take on the classic western omelette, but so much better. It has protein, the right amount of carbohydrates, flavor from ham and vegetables, and of course it is cheesy!

Must have cheese in an omelette! There are many variations that you can make to this omelette. You could make it into the classic ham and cheese omelette, a western or even add more vegetables and make it meat free. Eggs and vegetables taste so good together.

Change up the meat and use bacon in place of the ham. Try it with ground beef for a dinner omelette. I also like to have toast ready for the crew when we eat this for a meal. You can make an abundance of toast while you are baking the omelette. Just set the bread on the oven rack and they will toast that way.

Frequently Asked Questions:

            Can I change out the vegetables?

Of course you can. This recipe is made using the ingredients that I and my family like. Take it as a basic plan that allows for changes.

            Can I make this ahead of time?

You could make it the night before, but I do not recommend that. If you do, keep the ingredients separated until you are ready to bake it.

            What should I serve with this?

For us, it does not matter if this is a breakfast or made as a dinner. I like to serve mixed fruit with it. I have heard others serve it with tomato and cottage cheese on a leaf of lettuce.
