Weekend Recipe: Omelette

Did you know that most chefs believe perfectly cooking an egg is one of the most challening culinary feats?

This is our traditional Christmas breakfast- this and my coffee cake- I think I know what I’ll be posting next week!  This is an easy way to get the taste of an omelette without the nerve-splitting stress of trying to flip one.

“Omlette”- aka egg casserole

1 c sliced mushrooms

½-1 c diced onion

2T butter/marg

6-8 slices cooked bacon or diced ham

12 ounces cheese (cheddar, Colby Jack, etc.)

8-12 eggs

Salt and pepper to taste

Instructions: Saute mushrooms and onions in butter.  You can omit these if you don’t like them.  Put mushrooms and onion and your meat of choice in the bottom of a greased 9×13 pan.  Beat eggs with a fork in a bowl and salt and pepper them as you like.  Pour them on top of veg and meat.  The recipe calls for 8, but I used 12 to make more.  Sprinkle cheese on top.  You can use whatever kind you like, and we always use a lot.  Bake at 275 F 45 minutes, probably longer if you use more than 8 eggs.

Want some more fun egg recipes?  Hope this dish is loved as much in your home as it is in ours.
