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.



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 jalapeƱo 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 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 (:
