Oven Omelet {Freezer Meal}

This oven omelet is easy to make and feeds a large crowd. It's also incredibly versatile - pack it with any breakfast meats or veggies!

My family has a love affair with eggs whether it’s for breakfast, lunch, or dinner.  No skin off my back, since they are cheap, easy to make, and healthy.  This “omelette” casserole is either breakfast or dinner at our house at least once a week.  A few advantages of the Oven Omelet:

  • less work and mess to make than scrambled eggs or a traditional egg casserole
  • great for a big crowd
  • you can easily refrigerate the leftovers and reheat later
  • your kids can help you make it
  • you can use a piece of it on a toasted bagel or English muffin for a quick breakfast sandwich
  • you can hide veggies in it, which I often do for my kids (try finely grated carrot, pureed squash, pureed sweet potato, chopped up green pepper, chopped up spinach or pureed pumpkin)
  • make it vegetarian by replacing the meat with some sauteed peppers and onions

We often pair this breakfast item with fresh fruit and Brownie Baked Oatmeal or Peanut Butter and Banana Baked Oatmeal.

    Would it be ok to make the night before and chill in the fridge before cooking in the morning. Trying to figure out some good healthy breakfasts for my family, but I have a horrible time trying to get up in the mornings!

        I make something similar and I’ve found the normal loose hash browns don’t work well because they are pale bland and don’t have that nice crisp thing going. However frozen tater tots or the frozen hash brown patties work well since they are already crispy. I do add them still frozen. They work well putting it straight back in the freezer or in the fridge overnight to cook in the AM.

    Just made today for a great Memorial Day breakfast. It was a hit with the whole family. The best part was it was so easy to make & tasted awesome. I put sautéd onions & peppers, spinach, bacon, green onion & cheese in mine.

    Do you know if this freezes well? To be heated up as individual servings? I am the first one to leave the house in the mornings and am constantly looking for super easy breakfast solutions for my family. As long as they can grab it and nuke it, they will usually eat it!

      Debbie, this really isn’t a great one to freeze ahead and reheat in the microwave. Gets a little tough. I would suggest trying the Breakfast Casserole Muffins, Savory Breakfast Muffins, Chocolate Banana Muffins (Version 2.0), and Breakfast Cookies if you want some freezable/reheatable options for the family. I make up a batch, let them cool completely, put them in a freezer bag. To reheat from frozen, cover with a moist paper towel and microwave in increments (start with 30-60 seconds and keep going until warmed through).
