Baked Egg Omelette

Egg omelette with ham or canadian bacon and vegetables is a nice breakfast dish. It takes more than an hour to prepare, but it totally worth it.

Unlike most of other omelettes which are usually fried eggs with some other ingredients, this one is prepared by baking them in the oven.

It is a bit hard to tell exact baking time for this dish – it depends a lot on the size of the baking pan you use (both size and material it is made of) and amount of ingredients: my advice would be to test omelette with wooden toothpick (pierce it through from top to bottom and remove it) – if it does come out clean – baked omelette is ready.

How to prepare, step-by-step:

  1. Prepare ingredients:

  3. Dice ham or canadian bacon (whatever you have), if it has hard skin or cover – remove it. Add it to onions and fry them all together for about 5 mins, stirring occasionally:

  11. Cut tomatoes in halves and remove stem parts (if you like you omelette to be less juicy, remove seeds as well), then dice them. Arrange diced tomatoes in a even layer over bell pepper:

  12. Pour egg mix to the baking pan:

  14. Exact cooking time depends on how high is the level of the mix in the baking pan: the deeper it is – the longer it takes to bake. For the amount of ingredients I had and the baking pan I’ve used it took 40 minutes. Take baking pan out of the oven when omelette is ready and set it aside to cool down a bit:

  15. Slice omelette into portion pieces and carefully move each piece to the plate. Serve warm, for breakfast or lunch:

I made this with a twist for the very first time this evening using some of your ideas. I used 2 tbs of cake flour instead of regular flour. No meat but still Italian inspired. I mixed together herbs, spices, Italian mix cheese, milk and cake flour. Then I folded it into egg whites that I added 1 tsp of sugar to. I sliced up 2 Roma tomatoes and also had a jar of red bell peppers in oil and added those (minus the oil), on the bottom of the baking pot. Then I poured the mix on top and… Read more »

I tried this recipe and it came out beautiful. I used andoille sausage and shrimp for the meat. When it was almost cooked I place shredded parmesan cheese on top and I poured salsa on top of the cheese. Delicious!
