Adam and I are real bad at mornings – Like, dysfunctional bad. Getting out of bed on time, getting ready in time, and successfully getting coffee and lunches together before heading out the door on time is a very real trial every day. As you can imagine, we’re not make a nice breakfast and sit and savor it with a paper in the morning kind of people.
Breakfast is a must, but since we’re scrambling every morning to get out the door, breakfast has to be quick. Smoothies have been the “go-to” for a few years now, but since Adam started working out in the mornings, he needs something with a little more oomph to hold him over til lunch.
So I created the baked omelette. Every Sunday, I concoct a baked omelette and we eat that most mornings all week – unless I get smoothie inspired. We just cut a piece and microwave it for a minute or so. It’s not a breakfast casserole- there are no carbs involved. It’s just eggs, veggies, cheese, and sometimes meat. I switch up the ingredients and the toppings so we don’t get too bored with it. We’ve been eating baked omelette for a few months now and are still happy. So I thought I’d pass on the happiness to you!
salt and pepper to taste
1 cup of veggies/meat (if meat is desired)
1 cup shredded cheese
Whisk eggs, add salt and pepper to taste, add veggies/meat and 1/2 of the cheese. Pour into greased casserole dish. Top with remaining cheese. Bake at 350 for 30 minutes. Cool and then chill. Slice piece in the morning, heat for one minute, and top with favorite sauce/garnish.
Some of my favorite combinations are:
* Sauteed red, yellow, orange, and green bell peppers and red onion with sharp cheddar garnished with Tiger Sauce
* Chorizo, green peppers, green onion, cilantro, and jalapenos with Monterrey Jack cheese garnished with salsa, sour cream, cilantro, green onions, and avocado
* Mushroom, caramelized onion and Swiss cheese garnished with salsa
* Bacon and spinach with Monterrey Jack cheese garnished with salsa and avocado
