Baked Denver Omelet
When I was a kid, there was one thing that my dad was really good at making: omelets! He had a special little pan he’d use and we’d enjoy made-to-order omelets occasionally on weekends. Omelet-making is a skill that I have never mastered but they have a flavor that I love. So instead of making a bunch of individual omelets, I like to throw all of that goodness in a baking dish and just stick it in an oven.
Today’s recipe for an easy Baked Denver Omelet is one of my favorites! It’s simple, full of ham which my kids love, and you can’t go wrong with things topped with avocado. It’s great with a dash of hot sauce if you like things spicy and it reheats like a dream. I’m all about quick and easy breakfast later in the week.
The type of pan you use is going to determine the baking time for any baked omelet. Just be sure the center of the dish is no longer jiggly and the eggs are set. I made this, got in a hurry and took it out of the oven, sliced a piece and it was still a runny mess in the middle. You know what I did? I stuck that piece right back in the pan and baked it another 8 minutes. I think the porcelain baking dish is slower to heat than some of my metal and glass pans. It’s not a big deal if you have to cook it a little longer than the recipe might say, just keep an eye on it!
How can I store leftover baked omelet?
You can store your baked Denver omelet in the refrigerator for 3-4 days, or you can store it and freeze it for up to 3 months! This makes it a great recipe to make ahead and warm up when you need an even easier breakfast!
How do I reheat a breakfast casserole?
If you need something quick, you can microwave it. If you have more time, you can reheat it by putting it in the oven at 325 degrees for around 20 minutes and it will reheat and taste just like it did when you first made it!
How can I customize this dish?
There is a lot of flexibility with this baked omelet because omelets can be so different! Feel free to change the type of meat, peppers, or cheese to something you like! You can even swap out the peppers with a different vegetable of your choice, add in hot sauce, and more!
