green bell pepper, chopped
chopped cooked ham
shredded Cheddar cheese
salt and ground black pepper to taste
Really good and really easy. I had a cooked potato left from dinner last night, so I peeled and cubed it, and added to the egg mixture. I used a 16-oz container of Egg Beaters instead of the eggs to save on fat and cholesterol. I just poured the egg substitute mixture into my new ceramic-lined skillet, popped it into the oven, and it cooked perfectly at 25 minutes. After baking, it slid right on to a plate with no sticking whatsoever (and I saved one dirty dish). Next time, this omelet will travel from Denver to Mexico because I plan to add some jalapeño and serve with salsa, sour cream, and some chopped cilantro. Wouldn't hesitate to serve this to company for brunch (or lunch as I did today).
I made this a little differently than the recipe reads. I microwaved some frozen spinach, squeezed out the water, and made 6 slices of bacon and chopped it up. I mixed the 8 eggs, 1/2 cup milk, spinach, bacon and about 1 cup of shredded Mexican cheese. I poured it into a buttered 9" cake pan. 400 oven for 25 minutes. Turned upside down on a plate it slid right out. It was tasty but dry. Next time I'll add more milk. It was really easy and next time it will be 5 stars.
I am 17 years old and i am a terrible cook, really. But this was so easy to make and it came out so good! thank you (:
Since this is a baked omelet, there is no need to dirty a skillet, too. While the oven is preheating, just put your butter, onion, bell pepper and ham in the dish you are going to bake it in and place that in the oven until "sauteed" and heated through to your liking while you are beating the eggs and milk and then stirring in the S&P and cheese. When the onion, bell pepper and ham are ready,stir them into the egg mixture then pour the whole thing back into the baking dish and bake. Less dishes to do.
Very easy Sunday breakfast for my husband and me. I reduced the serving size to 3 and used a pie plate. I baked it for 20 min. I also tossed in a couple of baby bella mushrooms and sprinkled some reduced fat cheddar cheese on top. Delicious!
I've been making these for years, but I use my iron skillet! I saute the veggies in the skillet then add the beaten eggs and top with cheese. I sometimes add diced potato as well like a previous reviewer said, and sometimes mushrooms. Pop it in the oven until done, it only takes about 10-15 minutes since the pan is already hot and the bottom mostly cooked. I call it a frittata! Easy and delicious1
Delicious! I am not a fan of green pepper or onion but I like the flavor in certain dishes and I was feeling adventurous so I fixed this. I scaled this down to 1 serving (2 eggs) and I minced my pepper and onion very tiny before cooking so I wouldn't encounter large icky pieces of it while eating. I used smoked dinner ham and I do think using a good quality and flavor of ham makes a difference in this dish. I was really not expecting to like this but trying to expand my food boundaries, and hesitantly took a bite. Oh. My. Goodness. My mouth is in heaven. I devoured this whole thing and it was fabulous to the last bite. This turned out moist and not at all dry like I thought. I didn't have the proper size baking dish so I lined a pie plate with aluminum foil and bent it up to make a small foil "boat" in the size I needed. I still can't believe how delicious this dish was!!! Thanks for sharing and I am soo glad I tried this.
Grandma used to make this about 60 years ago and I followed in her footsteps. I make it in a deep cast iron fry pan cooking shredded potatoes until nice and crisp, then adding eggs etc. and put in oven. After it sets, I top with more cheese, red & yellow thin sliced bell peppers and let finish. Oma used to call it a FARMERS BREAKFAST and so do I. Fresh spinach and other fresh veggies mixed into the mixture is fantastic, let your tastebuds guide you! Be aware though that mixture will at least double in size, so make sure you have a VERY DEEP fry pan or fry potatoes first, layer them on bottom of deep baking dish and add rest of stuff, works as well!
