Oven-Baked Omelette

First published 19th May, 2021

What a fantastic idea - a baked omelette! Making omelettes is tricky - it's that flipping over into half thing-  we end up with a dog's breakfast, probably delicious but not pleasing to the eye.

We're keen on sharing ideas for simple meals for when you don't have a TasteBox kit on hand and this will be our first - the Baked Denver Omelette, courtesy of Allrecipes

Here are the written instructions for 4 servings:

Ingredients:

  • 2 Tablespoons butter (or oil)
  • 1/2 an onion, chopped
  • 1/2 a green or red pepper, deseeded and chopped
  • 1 cup chopped cooked ham
  • 8 eggs
  • 100 ml milk
  • 125ml grated cheddar cheese
  • salt & black pepper to taste

Steps:

  1. Heat your oven to 200 degrees C and, if you don't have a cast-iron skillet that can go in the oven, grease a normal oven dish that would serve 4.
  2. Melt 2 tablespoons of butter in your skillet and fry the onion and pepper for 5 minutes until softened.
  3. Add the ham and cook for 5 minutes more.
  4. In a bowl, beat the eggs, milk, and cheese, add to the ham mixture in the cast iron skillet or pour everything into your oven dish if you do not have an oven-proof skillet.
  5. Bake for 25 minutes until golden and puffy.

TasteBox Recommendation:

While the oven is on, bake some cherry tomatoes, drizzled in balsamic vinegar, olive oil, salt, and black pepper to have on the side. You could also serve your omelette with sour cream and chopped chives, or some baby spinach. Or why not go wild and have all three?
