Although it's easy, the omelet looks like you fussed. Sometimes I toss in mushrooms and cheddar cheese for a different flavor. —Laurel Roberts, Vancouver, Washington

Ingredients

  • 8 bacon strips, diced
  • 4 green onions, sliced
  • 8 large eggs
  • 1 cup 2% milk
  • 1/2 teaspoon seasoned salt
  • 2-1/2 cups shredded Monterey Jack cheese, divided

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350°. In a large skillet, cook bacon over medium heat until crisp. Drain, reserving 1 tablespoon drippings. Set bacon aside. Saute onions in drippings until tender; set aside.
  2. In a large bowl, beat eggs. Add milk, seasoned salt, 2 cups cheese, bacon and sauteed onions. Transfer to a greased shallow 2-qt. baking dish.
  3. Bake, uncovered, 35-40 minutes or until set. Sprinkle with remaining cheese.

Can you freeze Jack Cheese Oven Omelet?

Freeze unbaked omelet until firm; cover with foil. To use, remove from freezer 30 minutes before baking (do not thaw). Preheat oven to 350°. Bake as directed, increasing time as necessary for a knife inserted in the center to come out clean. Sprinkle with 1/2 cup cheese.
