Baked Omelet Time Saver

Baked omelets are an easy way to make breakfast for your whole family!  When making traditional omelets, your time is spent hovering over a hot stove while you cook each Omelet separately, right? But if you bake them, you pour your eggs into a pan.  Top with your desired toppings, and bake! Then you roll it up and slice for the kids to enjoy.

Once out of the oven, you roll up the eggs so the filling becomes the inside.

I love omelets! They are a great way to sneak in veggies and also give your kids a lot of protein. Thanks for a recipe that incorporates wheat flour.

Christy says:

I’ll have to try this.

Tara says:

Yummy! My one year old loved it. Thanks for another fast, easy, and healthy recipe.

Karla says:

I love your website !!!! It’s a blessing in my life I have always disliked cooking but since I found your page I look forward into making b-fast lunch and dinner!!! ……this morning I’m making these baked omelets and since my girls won’t eat the veggies if they see them I decided to blend them along with all the ingredients he he he they won’t even know!!!!

Amy says:

Thank you Karla! That means a lot to me :)!!

Hilary says:

Your blog is changing my life. It is so hard to find kid friendly, yet healthy recipes. And they usually consist of inexpensive food items that I already have on hand. Thank you, thanks you, thank you!

Amy says:

Thank you so much Hilary! That means a lot to me. We are definitely bakers out of convenience, and have no desire to purchase exotic and expensive ingredients! So glad you feel the same 🙂

Eva says:

I love all of your recipes!! But could you maybe put how many serving sizes each is?

Amy says:

Hi Evan! Thanks for the kind words. The only place we calculate serving size is in the meal planning side of the site. You can check it out here. http://www.superhealthykids.com/subscribe.php

I just came across your site today. They recipes look fantastic! I’m excited to try them. I struggle with finding a breakfast food that my 7-year-old will eat. I think he would love these omelettes. Have you ever made them ahead, refrigerated, and then reheated when ready to eat?

Cherise says:

Any idea if this recipe will work with coconut flour or almond flour?

Amy says:

I haven’t tried it Cherise- but I’m guessing it should work fine!

Shellie Ramos says:

Looks great will definitely try.

I LOVE this idea!!! What a great way to serve everyone at the same time… AND to sneak in some veggies 🙂

Rebecca says:

I tried this today. I loved the idea, but it didn’t work at all. I followed the directions as written, and the omelet puffed up like a Dutch Baby Pancake (or German Pancake, as some call it). There was no possibility of rolling this up. Kids still ate it, but it was nothing like your picture.

I’m curious where you live Rebecca? We’ve done this many times without problem. But I am in Utah and have been told to add 1/4 cup of flour extra to our baked goods. I’m curious if you are low-altitude if this recipe has too much flour? Really, I’m clueless, but just considering what might be the problem?!?!

julie says:

can we substitute oat flour instead of whole wheat flour and get the same results??? I also have spelt flour, would that work?
thanks
I am looking forward to trying this 🙂

Julie- I would think it would work. You just need a bit for structure. I haven’t tried it with other flours, but I doubt it would be a disaster 🙂
