Oven Baked Denver Omelet


Lately I feel like I am in a breakfast rut. My boys have been eating a lot of cereal and I wanted to try something new.  They like omelets, but they can sometimes be time consuming to make.  Here is the awesome thing about this breakfast.  It comes together in a matter of minutes and is ready in no time at all!

Oh.my.goodness.  There were so many things I loved about this Denver Baked Omelet.  It makes a big pan so it was able to feed my entire family.  It was packed with so many delicious things.  Ham, onions and peppers, and gooey cheese.  The perfect omelet.  The great thing about this recipe is that you can customize it to your families likes.   Add in some bacon if you would like!  You can quickly pop this in the oven in a moments notice and have a delicious breakfast for the family!

  1. Love how quickly this comes together! I’d probably do it for dinner when I’m feeling lazy and want something ultra tasty and satisfying in a hurry, printed and pinned 🙂

  2. That looks! good and so easy!!! Pinned!

  3. What a great idea for breakfast. I know what you mean. My son has been eating so much cereal lately, too. This recipe would be great for company too! Thanks for sharing.

  4. This looks delicious! Can’t wait to try!

    I was wondering can you make this with
    Egg Beaters ? Looks Delicious

    with the price of breakfast going up when you eat out this is a great savings!! you can have salsa and sour cream and whatever else you want.!!anything goes with this recipe. its a keeper for sure

  8. Can you make this with milk instead of half and half

  9. looks pretty easy. going to try it for the office breakfast potluck

  10. Would it work to add some potatoes in too? It would be more of a casserole then instead of an omelet, maybe?

    • That sounds yummy but not sure if it will work?? Let me know if you try it out!

      • I do it with cold leftover boiled potatoes sliced. Works wonderfully. My mother used to make this when we were small with leftovers. Ham after Christmas was always good for something different. Also onions and chillis. My kids love it.

  11. This is so good and comes together in a flash. I used lowfat milk instead of half and half, and it worked great. Also, I had to substitute red pepper for the green. I will definitely be making this again. Thanks!

  12. Could this be made the night before?

  13. gloria latta says:

    I made this and substituted ham with mushrooms and tomatoes.

  14. Hi Alyssa! If the recipe is doubled and using a 9×12 baking dish, what would the cooking time be?

  15. I make this dish on Sunday and it’s my breakfast for the week. Just cut a square, pop it in the microwave for 45 seconds and I’ve got my breakfast. My husband cuts a slice to put in his biscuit for his breakfast. We LOVE it…. Thanks for sharing..

  16. Thanks so much for this recipe! I made it for our faculty breakfast at school last week, and it was a hit! I didn’t have green peppers at home, so I used roasted red peppers. We are going to make this recipe for our Ladies’ Breakfast/Cookie Exchange at our church in December. I plan to use both green peppers and roasted red pepper to give it the Christmas colors. I’m sure it will be a popular dish.

  17. I made it for dinner with hash browns and toast from homemade bread on the side. So much easier than making separate omelets and just as good in my opinion.

  18. I see green onions sprinkled on top. Do you use green onions in the omelet or 1/2 cup regular onions?

  19. Can this be re-heated to use all week? I hardly have time to make anything in the morning and this would be perfect for making on a Sunday for the week, Also how many calories are in this dish please? Thank you 🙂

  20. I made this for my mother who loves the omelettes and she loved it. ME too :D. I will make this again.

  21. Can this be made the night before?
