Oven Denver Omelet Recipe

Publisher Photo
I like omelets but don't always have time to stand by the stove. That's why I favor this oven-baked variety that I can quickly pop into the oven at a moment's notice. My family frequently requests this for Sunday brunch. They always empty the dish.—Ellen Bower, Taneytown, Maryland

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jan. 6, 2015

"Delicious & quick! Doubled the recipe for a 9x13 pan to feed our whole family. Used half 2% milk & half "half & half." Had no leftovers. Served with the orange smoothies that this recipe was coupled with in the original issue of TOH in 1998. Both are "keepers" for our family!"

"use crumbled cooked sausage instead of ham and mushrooms instead of green pepppers for a different taste or just try your own unique ingredients"

"Just okay."

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jan. 3, 2015

"Set your cooker to a medium setting, chuck all the ingredients in a big frying pan and cover with a lid. As it is direct heat, it will cook in a fraction of the time. I used cooked runner beans and mushrooms instead of ham and peppers, and low fat milk instead of cream."

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jan. 3, 2015

"Excellent. Easy to put together and turns out very moist. I do, however, add extra green pepper, onions and cheese just because I love these ingredients! Can adjust ingredients to your own tastes. Definitely a "Keeper.""
