Oven Sour Cream Omelet Recipe

Prepared with flavorful ham and sour cream, this egg mixture bakes up to a fluffy finish. “The recipe was handed down to me from my grandmother, who got it from my great-grandmother,” shares Jennifer Holub of Clarendon Hills, Illinois. TIP: “After baking, slide the omelet onto a warm plate and serve it plain or with applesauce,” Jennifer recommends.
TOTAL TIME: Prep/Total Time: 30 min. YIELD:4 servings

Ingredients

  • 6 eggs, separated
  • 1 cup (8 ounces) sour cream, divided
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper
  • 1-1/4 cups chopped fully cooked ham
  • 2 tablespoons butter

Directions

  • 1. In a bowl, beat egg yolks on high speed for 3 minutes or until light and fluffy. Beat in 1/2 cup sour cream and pepper. In another bowl, beat egg whites until stiff peaks form; fold into yolk mixture. Fold in ham.
  • 2. In a deep ovenproof 10-in. skillet, melt the butter. Add egg mixture. Cook, uncovered, over medium-low heat for 6-8 minutes or until bottom is set (do not stir).
