My family loves breakfast for dinner. We usually have it once a week. We do the usual things like pancakes, french toast, and waffles. I have some healthy recipes for those which I’ll share with you later, but since I’m trying to stay away from processed carbs, we also eat a lot of eggs. Not all my kids like eggs, but they all love omelets. Go figure.
As you can imagine, making omelets for such a big group is time consuming, so I knew I needed to come up with another way. I decided to throw all the ingredients into a casserole dish and bake it. It took literally five minutes to throw together and turned out awesome.
The eggs end up creamy and fluffly inside, and you can include anything you normally like in an omelet. The pictured omelet includes turkey sausage, jalapeno peppers, and cheddar cheese. I think it would be yummy with mushrooms, tomatoes, spinach and swiss. Use your imagination, and I’m sure you’ll come up with some great creations.
I’ve even used this recipe as part of my weekly meal prep because it reheats well. If I want to keep the kids out of it, I put in things they don’t like. Sneaky–like the jalapeno peppers. Now, for the super simple recipe….
