Baked Cheese and Bacon Omelette

Baked Cheese and Bacon OmeletteFor breakfast, brunch or dinner, serve this deliciously easy, oven-baked cheese and bacon omelette with home-style fried potatoes or hash browns, fresh fruit, sweet muffins and mugs of steaming, robust coffee.

Recipe Ingredients:

6 large eggs, beaten
2/3 cup milk
1/4 teaspoon kosher or sea salt
1/8 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
1 1/2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
1 medium green onion, sliced thin
3 slices bacon; cooked and crumbled
1 tablespoon butter
1 tablespoon freshly grated Parmesan cheese

Cooking Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 400°F (205°C).
  2. Whisk together eggs and milk. Stir in salt, pepper, cheese, onion and bacon.
  3. Melt butter* in a 9-inch oven-safe skillet. Pour egg mixture into pan. Sprinkle with Parmesan.
  4. Bake for 20 minutes or until puffed up, set and golden. Cut into wedges and serve immediately.

Makes 4 servings.

*When melting the butter in the skillet watch carefully, especially if placed in the preheated oven to melt as the butter will burn quickly. However if it does become a golden brown color, it will simply add a desirable caramelized butter flavor.
