If you are looking for a family-friendly recipe for your Easter Sunday brunch, I personally recommend the Garden~Fresh Oven Omelet Roll. Just like its Bacon Cheeseburger cousin, this omelet roll is simple and flexible but loaded with vegetables and goodness that you can cook from your own garden.
I started this omelet in the oven and while the omelet got puffy, I sauteed a blend of onion, bell pepper, ham, and tomato. However, the meat could easily be substituted with mushrooms to make it meatless, and you could swap out the bell pepper for asparagus.
If you are laughing inside your head and thinking, “My kids would never eat that!” think again. Just keep your vegetables to one side of the omelet, leaving a portion cheesy for the picky eaters.
My children gobble this oven omelet down in a flash and then ask for more. Soon, I will need to double my recipe because we are running out before everyone gets their filled with this delicious family favorite.
- 12 large eggs
- 1 cup milk
- 1/2 cup flour
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
- 2 cups cheese (cheddar or colby-jack recommended)
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 1 bell pepper, diced
- 1 onion, diced
- 1-2 tomatoes, seeded and diced
- 2 cups diced ham or mushrooms
- Preheat your oven to 375 degrees. Mix the eggs, milk, flour, salt, and pepper until smooth with an immersion blender.
- Line a 9×13 rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper and spray the paper with non-stick cooking spray. Pour the batter on top of the parchment paper. Gently place the baking sheet in the oven.
- While the omelet cooks, dice the onion, bell pepper, tomatoes, and ham or mushrooms. Pour olive oil into a hot skillet over medium high heat. Add the onion, bell pepper and ham, sauteing until the vegetables are tender. Stir in tomatoes and season to taste with salt and pepper.
- After 20 to 25 minutes, the omelet will be puffed and browned very slightly on top. Remove it from the oven and allow the puff to deflate.
- Sprinkle the omelet evenly with a layer of cheese and then the vegetable mixture, leaving about 2 inches on one side. Top the vegetable mixture with additional cheese, sprinkling all the way to the edge.
- Using the parchment paper, roll the omelet gently together. If you wish to serve the omelet roll on a pretty platter, slide the parchment onto the platter before you completely roll the omelet off the paper.
- Slice with a serrated knife and serve.
